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
you don’t need to completely eliminate emotional eating to be healthy
In his new book, Mindful Emotional Eating, psychologist Pavel Somov has given a “cultural permission” 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 “leverage more coping per calorie.” Numerous original exercises and meditative techniques will guide a more conscious alliance with food during moments of emotional distress.

Reviews:
“In his usual straight-shooting, paradigm shifting, make a change oriented style, Pavel Somov's Mindful Emotional Eating gives anyone struggling with emotional eating, a handy and concise how-to roadmap to change.”
-- Donald Altman, M.A., LPC, author The Mindfulness Toolbox, One-Minute Mindfulness, and Art of the Inner Meal

"Don’t be fooled by the seeming contradiction in the title of Mindful Emotional Eating. The book makes the case to troubled eaters and their ‘treaters’ that if we’re going to turn to food when we re stressed or distressed, we best do it not with guilt, shame, self-hatred, or detachment from our bodies and their cravings, but with a keen mindfulness that will satisfy our appetites and foster emotional well-being."
--Karen R. Koenig, LCSW, M.Ed., psychotherapist, eating coach, and author of Outsmarting Overeating

"This wonderfully creative book teaches us that we don't need willpower to overcome our unruly eating habits, but mindfulness skill power. It shows that freedom doesn't come from stopping emotional eating, but when we learn how to eat emotionally in moderation, more effectively and without self-judgment or self-loafing. Pavel Somov has put together a fun mindfulness toolbox for not only healthcare professionals, but anyone who struggles with emotional eating."
--Alexa Frey, Co-Founder, The Mindfulness Project, London

“Pavel's Mindful Emotional Eating is a gem of a toolkit that will be invaluable both to individuals seeking a mindful eating self-help option and to practitioners looking to infuse more mindfulness into their work..."
--foreword by Linda Craighead, Ph.D., Professor of Psychology & Director of Clinical training, Emory University, author of The Appetite Awareness Workbook
