Isn’t it time you got off the diet treadmill? In The Food Addiction Recovery Workbook, physician Carolyn Coker Ross offers the proven-effective Anchor Program™ to help you curb cravings, end body dissatisfaction, manage stress and emotions without food, and truly satisfy your soul. When it comes to addiction, abstinence isn’t always the answer—and with food addiction, this Isn’t it time you got off the diet treadmill? In The Food Addiction Recovery Workbook, physician Carolyn Coker Ross offers the proven-effective Anchor Program™ to help you curb cravings, end body dissatisfaction, manage stress and emotions without food, and truly satisfy your soul. When it comes to addiction, abstinence isn’t always the answer—and with food addiction, this is especially true. And yet, for decades nutritional experts have dissected the problem of obesity, and the result has been a series of recommendations about what and how much to eat. When “eating too much fat” was thought to cause obesity, grocery store shelves exploded with low-fat products. Next came the low carb craze that led us to fear eating all carbohydrates, and with it came another assortment of fad products and diets. This pattern has repeated numerous times—and it never seems to be helpful! If you’re struggling with obesity or food addiction, you’ve probably been told that you must deprive yourself of certain foods in order to lose weight. You may have also been convinced—by the media and by our culture—that if you finally become thin your life will be better, you’ll be happier, and your suffering will come to an end. The problem is—it’s not all about the food. It’s about how food is used to self-soothe, to numb ourselves against the pain of living or to cope with stress and unresolved emotions. Even as your waist whittles away, the problems that caused your food addiction won’t disappear.  The Anchor Program™ approach detailed in this workbook is not about dieting. It’s about being anchored to your true, authentic self. When you find your unique anchor, you will relate better to your body, you will know intuitively how to feed your body, and you will reach the weight that’s right for you. Anyone who’s been on the diet treadmill—losing and regaining lost weight—will admit that losing weight doesn’t instantly bring health or happiness. That’s because losing weight is a red herring for the real issue, the misuse of food to solve a problem that has nothing to do with food. This book offers a whole-person approach that blends practical information on managing stress and regulating emotions without relying on food. If you’re ready to uncover the true cause of your food addiction, you’ll finally be able to embrace a balanced diet and reach the weight that’s right for you.

Same Coin just different side. This author has a wealth of knowledge in this field but she starts off a blunt and harsh for those who struggle with food addiction. As I researched the authout her background i found it diffcult to connect witg het because she refers to those who have the ability of she same social status. The end of the book has endless resources for those who struggle with a food addiction if they find they need more help than book can provide. The author has readers self-diagnosis themselves throughout the book with lots of questions for the readers to answer themselves. The Food Addiction Recovery workbook can be very useful for someone who is dealing with food addictions because it gives them a plan of attack how to change their behaviors and how to get help with the reference guides. I can see how this book could be very useful for someone who is dealing with food addiction. It helps build a plan of attack on how to change their unhealthy behavior. I would have like to have more information on different eating disorders that are out there in the world. From anorexia to overeating. As I said before same coin just different sides. I found this book as a reference guide as well as it is called a workbook to be helpful guide and I found it helpful in my own personal life. Thank you Netgalley and the publisher for an advance Copy.

    ARC Review copy: This book was full of interesting material, but I didn't realize how much of the book was devoted to written exercises and self-diagnosis. I was hoping for a more information about eating disorders and breaking unhealthy habits and less surveys (but if I saw it in a book-store and was able to flip through it, it would have been much easier to come to that conclusion).

The comprehensive list of references at the back, and the author's credentials, were also reassuring that the material in the book was well-researched and valid.

    The thing I liked about this book is that it considers food as an actual addiction, much in the same way people suffer from addictions to drugs or alcohol. Because, let's face it - food IS an addiction, and probably one of the hardest to break given that you can live without drugs and alcohol but you CAN'T live without food. This book fulfils its title of 'workbook' with lots of exercises scattered throughout, which enable you to consider where your problems are. However I did disagree slightly The thing I liked about this book is that it considers food as an actual addiction, much in the same way people suffer from addictions to drugs or alcohol.

This book fulfils its title of 'workbook' with lots of exercises scattered throughout, which enable you to consider where your problems are. However I did disagree slightly with the use of them, for instance if you score above x amount, you may have a compulsive nature / be a food addict, and so on - self-diagnosis isn't always helpful or safe. Everyone has a compulsive nature to some extent; I just don't think it is helpful to label every little thing in this way. I do however think this book does a great job at helping the reader to recognise their behaviours and therefore prepare them for change. There are a couple of case studies which make the teachings really apply much better to the reader, and these were helpful to read. The book uses a lot of mindfulness techniques, such as stopping to actual consider the feel of your feet, the parts of your body, your mind... these are techniques I have used and find helpful. On the whole this workbook is really well packed with activities and advice, and for anyone with a genuinely troubling relationship with food, this will be a great help for them. (Thanks to NetGalley for this copy).

    Imagine an alcoholic being told, "You must have one shot glass of whiskey 3 times a day." The same madness confronts those with food addiction, a very real and very destructive situation for many people. We have to eat to live, but for those use food as emotional or spiritual comfort, and who just can't stay away from food, the relationship with food becomes fraught with danger, fear, and loathing. Food addictions can be as damaging to one's life and health as alcoholism. This workbook clarifies Imagine an alcoholic being told, "You must have one shot glass of whiskey 3 times a day." The same madness confronts those with food addiction, a very real and very destructive situation for many people. We have to eat to live, but for those use food as emotional or spiritual comfort, and who just can't stay away from food, the relationship with food becomes fraught with danger, fear, and loathing. Food addictions can be as damaging to one's life and health as alcoholism. This workbook clarifies what food addiction is, and is especially helpful to people who are not sure if they do indeed have a food addiction issue, by providing several self-quizzes and workbook pages designed to help identify the nature of the food issue and its possible causes in one's life. There are also pages designed to help people understand the childhood origins of food addiction, how you can heal, how to manage stress, understand your body, and put an end to body hatred. This is an extremely comprehensive and well written and researched book, and the reader gets a clear sense of the depth of the author's expertise on this subject. She has counseled patients on the topic for many years, and and has clearly developed a system for helping people master their food issues. This book is very useful for people who want to get a handle on their food issues, and perhaps bring a little control into a situation where they feel helpless, and hopeless.

    I received this book as an ARC on NetGalley. I read this book having never read anything about the topic of food addiction previously. I felt that this book did a really wonderful job of describing what food addiction is and is not, the different ways an individual can be addicted to or have an unhealthy relationship with food, and emphasizing that someone's size and/or weight does not include nor preclude an individual from this disorder. The tips provided in the self-help chapters, such as str I received this book as an ARC on NetGalley. I read this book having never read anything about the topic of food addiction previously.

The tips provided in the self-help chapters, such as stress management, mindfulness, inquiry, journaling, prayer/meditation, physical activity, and overall healthful balance, are many of the same tools and techniques that I have encountered throughout the other self-help books and programs I have completed. The dietary and nutritional insights in the middle chapters were also helpful in my own eating habits for becoming more aware not just of how food tastes, but the way foods make me feel both physically and emotionally. It was a good reminder that each body interacts and reacts with food differently and that I need to listen to my body more acutely when it comes to how I choose to nourish it. It was a really great insight into becoming curious and present to my eating habits that I think will help me as I move into stages of life where this becomes less of a trend and more of a necessity.

    I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. The reason that I was interested in this book is because I was drawn to the subtitle: How to Manage Cravings, Reduce Stress, and Stop Hating Your Body. I wasn't sure that I qualified as a food addict. Fortunately, the author includes a number of quizzes and exercises to assist in detecting levels of addiction and then provides the same resources to manage recovery.

I wasn't sure that I qualified as a food addict. Fortunately, the author includes a number of quizzes and exercises to assist in detecting levels of addiction and then provides the same resources to manage recovery. The time involved to take the quizzes and exercises is not overwhelming; the value will rest in using the results to plan restoration of a healthy relationship with food. What is particularly valuable is the mind-body-spirit connection that the author uses for the evaluation of addiction level and also for the management plan. The author has written an integrated book about causes of food addiction, awareness of food intake, and recovery and taking recovery to the next level; it's evident that she's knowledgeable about this topic. In addition to the self-help tools of the quizzes and exercises, the author provides an extensive resource section if a reader wished to take the research further.

    Excellent workbook. I was looking for a workbook for a relative on the subject. Although I think he is too stubborn to read it, I would highly recommend this book to anyone with this issue, or perhaps anyone wanting to gauge their eating habits. I flipped through some of the exercises and they seem very insightful. I guess those who need help can only get it if they want it! My relative asked for help with food addiction, but read the introduction and claimed they didn't think this was their iss Excellent workbook.

    This is a book written by an author who is clearly knowledgeable in her field. Personally I found the style a bit heavy handed and rather overwhelming from the start. The book takes an approach that assumes it's readers are all from the same socio-economic background, so it is a certain audience that fits the authors goal. There is interesting information in the book - but I don't recommend the book in general This is a book written by an author who is clearly knowledgeable in her field.

    this is a book I won on Goodreads, which I am always grateful for. The book did nothing for me. It wants to stem food addition to traumatic childhood issues, which do not apply. It is frustrating when social service and psychiatric situations always want to put labels on things. I thought there would be tips under the stress section, but again, it tries to put people in a box, in my opinion.

    Good news and bad news ( for the review) the good news for me personally is that I am not a good addict. The bad news is that means this book isn't really relevant to me, ha. Nonetheless it still has good tools for understands and helping to fix problem behaviors. Good news and bad news ( for the review) the good news for me personally is that I am not a good addict.
