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.

Begin the journey of recovery from eating disorders! Let’s start now on a twelve-step path that will lead out of the bondage of eating disorders and into the freedom that comes from a closer relationship with God. In the Life Recovery Workbook for Eating Disorders, discover real-life stories of fellow travelers, great questions for individual or group discussion, and a Bible-centered approach to freedom. Twelve beautiful blessings await after our hard work on the journey of recovery from eating disorders. Step 1: Open our hearts to God’s power to free us from the grip of food addiction. “We now have this light shining in our hearts.” (2 Corinthians 4:7) Step 2: Allow God to join us in the powerful emotions behind our eating disorder. “Daughter,” he said to her, “your faith has made you well. Go in peace.” (Luke 8:48) Step 3: Rest in God’s care for every decision and eating habit. “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.” (Matthew 11:28) Step 4: Gain a true picture of how God sees us. “At that moment their eyes were opened.” (Genesis 3:7) Step 5: Experience the healing that begins with confession. “Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed.” (James 5:16) Step 6: Get ready for repentance from sins expressed in unhealthy eating. “You will not reject a broken and repentant heart, O God.” (Psalm 51:17) Step 7: Allow God’s Spirit to fix our food addictions. “For those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.” (Luke 18:14) Step 8: Create a list of people our eating disorders have affected. “Do to others as you would like them to do to you.” (Luke 6:31) Step 9: Restore relationships damaged by our sins (when possible) and experience a clean slate. “But then they turn from their sins and do what is just and right.” (Ezekiel 33:14) Step 10: Review daily the defects in us that hinder healthy life with God and others. “Be careful not to fall.” (1 Corinthians 10:12) Step 11: Grow closer to God through prayer and meditation. “The LORD is good to those who depend on him, to those who search for him.” (Lamentations 3:25) Step 12: Bless others with the blessing of healing from eating disorders. “Gently and humbly help that person back onto the right path.” (Galatians 6:1) STEPHEN ARTERBURN is the founder of New Life Ministries—the nation’s largest faith-based broadcast, counseling, and treatment ministry—and host of the nationally syndicated New Life Live! daily radio program. He is a Gold Medallion–winning author and co-editor of The Life Recovery Bible. DAVID STOOP, PhD, is a licensed clinical psychologist and the founder of The Center for Family Therapy in Newport Beach, California. He also serves on the executive board of the American Association of Christian Counselors. David is a Gold Medallion–winning author and co-editor of The Life Recovery Bible.

Do you feel uncomfortable, embarrassed, guilty, or depressed about your weight? Do you resort to emotional eating to escape from problems, avoid boredom, relieve anxiety, or cope with stress? Have you ever tried to stop or limit some aspect of your compulsive-eating behaviors, but failed in your attempts? If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, you may be struggling with food addiction.Recent neuro-science research shows that activities such as over-eating - or the consuming of high-fat, high-sugar, high-salt foods - produce dopamine, a "feel-good" neurotransmitter released into the prefrontal cortex of the brain. This part of the brain is responsible for willpower and when it is repeatedly compromised with too much dopamine, it can become addicted - just like that of a drug addict. Diets don't treat addiction! With 70% of Americans overweight, when are we going to stop throwing diets at addiction? This workbook is designed to help you jump-start your recovery from food addiction. With information, tips, tools, advice and activities designed to help you overcome your addiction to food, the My Food Addiction Recovery Plan workbook and it's companion My Transformation Journal will walk you through a step-by-step plan to take back your life. As you answer the call of recovery, you too can find joy, confidence and freedom from food addiction!

This 90 day food addiction guided journal workbook is designed to help people break free of their addiction once and for all. Studies have shown that it can take up to 90 days for the human brain to "rewire" itself and leave old habits and old dependencies behind. This 6 x 9 inch, 130 page guided journal is professionally bound and is the perfect size for taking anywhere. The journal is broken down into three monthly sections. A series of thought-provoking questions and exercises are designed to stimulate new ways of thinking, and help form new (and healthier) patterns of behavior. Each of the journal's three sections begins with an undated monthly calendar. The idea is to cross off each day that you've been free of your addiction, until you reach the 90 day mark. The second section is a daily worksheet where you can record your challenges for that day, along with a daily action plan to meet those challenges. There's also a box where you can write down things you're grateful for in your life. The third section is comprised of a series of questions regarding your life and your addiction. These thought-provoking questions will help you explore your feelings and emotions, and hopefully help to keep you on the right path to recovery.

In addition to the 300,000 overweight people in this country, millions more who may not look overweight are unable to control their eating. Sheppard’s follow-up book, From the First Biteoffers the latest medical insights into food addiction coupled with time-tested, practical advice. Unlike other books that are very dry in nature, this book includes compelling personal stories and do’s and don’ts from other recovering and relapsed food addicts, including the author herself, who began her own recovery in 1967. The book explains how to avoid the physiological and situational triggers that lead to relapse; how to confront the emotional issues behind food cravings; how to establish a balanced food plan that eliminates cravings; and how to avoid hidden dangers in cleverly packaged foods. The book also includes a handy Twelve-Step workbook. Just as Sheppard’s first book broke new ground, her latest work offers a critical first step for food addicts on the road to physical, emotional and spiritual recovery.
