Eating Myself Crazy

How I Made Peace with Food (And How You Can Too)

Eating Myself CrazyWe humans have an emotional dependency on food. We eat chocolate when we’re sad or depressed, but most of us don’t know why it makes us feel better when we do.

It’s not a long-term solution to coping with the stresses of life, and can end up causing more stress in the form of unwanted weight gain and other health problems.

In Eating Myself Crazy, former bulimic, lifestyle consultant and life coach Treena Wynes not only tells her story of food addiction and how a personal crisis sparked her path to recovery, but also shares valuable information for others struggling with emotional eating issues.

A handy and intimate guide told in plain English, this pocket-sized book first shares simple easy-to-swallow bites of important mind/body facts, then encourages the reader to dig deep to uncover deeply hidden reasons for seeking out emotional relief in food. Finally, Treena offers simple and flexible strategies that can be used to suit any individual’s lifestyle and needs.

“Treena’s poignant story made me laugh, made me cry, but most importantly made me feel empowered….She tells her story in a compassionate, easy-to-understand way that just about everyone should be able to relate to.

“I’m probably the last person to read a diet book as I’ve never been on a diet. But Eating Myself Crazy is much more than that… It’s an honest exploration of the warped relationship we often have with food and the harm it does to our health, personal relationships and mental well-being. It’s full of good tips, even for a non-dieter like me! I haven’t tried any of the recipes yet, but they appear to be sane and healthy. Thanks for sharing, Treena…”
