Foreword by Sara Gottfried, M.D. New York Times bestselling author
A groundbreaking three-step program for conquering emotional eating—a practical, prescriptive, proactive approach using Emotional Intelligence that will help you slim down, eat healthfully and mindfully, and keep the pounds off
“At last—a book on eating well that puts everything you need to know in one place. Brilliant!” —Christiane Northrup, M.D.
Susan Albers, Psy.D., has discovered that the key to weight loss is not physical exercise, calorie counting, or even willpower—it’s emotional intelligence (EI). EI includes the noncognitive aspects of intelligence, such as optimism, impulse control, empathy, and the ability to manage stress, which are predictors of future success—including the ability to lose weight and to keep it off.
In her revolutionary Eat Q., Dr. Albers applies both self-help and emotional intelligence wisdom to weight loss for optimum success. You’ll learn what your personal style is as it relates to your Eat Q., and identify exactly what issues you have with eating. You’ll also be able to customize her program to suit your total Eat Q. profile. Dr. Albers gives you specifics, teaching you how to achieve immediate and lasting results.
Increase your Eat Q. to eat better, drop excess pounds, settle at a healthy weight for the long-term, improve your body image, and release yourself from the craziness of yo-yo to dieting once and for all.
