Eating Ourselves Crazy in EBook, or Paperback:
Eating Ourselves Crazy comes at a time when people are starting to re-evaluate the foods that are being provided to us by food industry giants. Foods have become so sophisticated and complex that many of us are not completely aware of what we are consuming. People are coming to question whether the foods we eat are making us sick and overweight. Most of us feel we are fairly savvy about good nutrition and healthy eating, however, 30 percent of North Americans are now overweight or obese. We think dieting is the natural solution to losing weight but the insidious cravings become too much to bear. This tug-of-war between dieting and our unsatisfied appetite is causing a food obsession.
Within Treena’s book Eating Ourselves Crazy Treena explains that a large part of our eating obsession is linked to our emotional needs. Our daily events drive our eating patterns. Our first method of recovery to soothe our raw nerves is reaching for sweets, starches or fast foods. Emotional-eating involves strong cravings for the same foods over and over again. Cravings and stress hunger contribute to weight gain which only makes us feel worse. This perpetuates the cycle of emotional eating. The book gives the readers strategies to eliminate emotional eating and take control of cravings and stress hunger.
Today people are torn from one idea of eating healthy to another. New diet ideas surface yearly, deciphering the latest science on what will help us lose weight or prevent illness. Eating has become so complicated that many of us throw our hands up and come up with the conclusion that “we are all going to die anyway so what’s the point”. This popular mentality will continue to move society forward to an already over-expanding waist-line and health crisis. Eating Ourselves Crazy will arm readers with valuable information on how the brain, hormones and moods are key players in our eating habits and reprogramming dieters to stop using willpower as the solution to losing weight.
Food is strongly linked to our emotions and we associate feelings with food. With today’s pressures and stress many of us turn to food for relief. The food industry is well aware how many of us use food to self-medicate and therefore create foods to be addicting. We are no longer using food to live but using food to function. This combination of addicting foods and our emotional dependency on them can easily manifest an emotional-eating cycle for many people.
