Dr. Lisa offers insights and patient stories about eating disorders and how to recover. The book addresses changes in the addict's thinking, in the person's relationship to The Source and spirituality, and in eating healthy, natural foods and avoiding binge diets. Many excellent resources are provided to assist in recovery from obsessive eating. Each chapter ends with questions to reflect upon that assist with the recovery process..

Wow!! This book was written for me for sure. Just finished reading it and it now all makes sense to me (I'm hard headed). I think it finally has sunk in. I loved the author's personal touch, sharing her struggles as well. It oozes with love and to love yourself. May we all take to heart that the three components, physical, emotional and spiritual are crucial to being on the road to recovery. As Dr. Lisa says and reminds me, baby steps....one meal at a time. Love yourself and invest in your future. I'm so thrilled that I bought this amazing book!!
