By using the liberating exercises and techniques developed by Geneen Roth in her highly succesful Breaking Free® workshops, dieters, who've tried every conceivable diet—losing weight again and again, only to gain it back—and bingers, who are harming their health, can learn wholesome, beneficial ways to achieve their goals. This proven program offers reassuring guidlines on:
• Letting food become a source of pleasure rather than anxiety
• Kicking the scale-watching the habit—forever!
• Recognizing the difference between physical and emotional hungers
• Learning to say no
• Listening to, and trusting, your body's hunger and fullness signals
