"Food Triggers: End Cravings Eat Well and Live Better" by Rhona Epstein, Psy.D, a certified addictions counselor, is the perfect book to start out the new year with. Epstein treats overeating and overweightness as an addiction like any other. She uses references from AA regularly and explains that food addiction isn't just physical. I love this book. Epstein explains brain triggers and what causes food addictions, some even before the person is born. Some of this may seem out there, but when you think about it, really, it all starts to make sense. She explains that though the abstinence of food entirely is not possible as it is for other addictions, there are food triggers that are avoidable. Sugar for instance. Hard to do, but possible. Epstein breaks down the addictions and makes them possible to manage. I received this book for free from Worthy Publishing.
