Help your clients achieve exactly what they want when it comes to emotional eating… . -you can eat to cope -you can learn to use food on occasion to feel better -you can feel in control (and have a treat) -you don't have to feel bad or guilty about emotional eating to be healthy. In his new book, Mindful Emotional Eating, psychologist Pavel Somov has given a "e;cultural permission"e; to eat emotionally--with mindfulness-based tools to do so in moderation and without self-judgment and self-loathing. Somov proposes that emotional eating is a legitimate form of self-care and teaches clients and clinicians how to "e;leverage more coping per calorie."e; Numerous original exercises and meditative techniques will guide a more conscious alliance with food during moments of emotional distress.
