There are millions of people who bounce from one diet to ather with understanding of the link between emotional eating (compulsive overeating) and t being able to keep off the weight. Author, Tennie McCarty, was herself an overeater, food addict and bulimic. Tennie believes that food addiction is a physical and mental problem with a spiritual solution. Tennie confronted her addictions to unhealthy relationships, food, work and was finally able to find the one thing we all ultimately crave-serenity. In her work with clients, Tennie helps them uncover why they yo-yo diet, why they compromise their health with a diseased relationship to food, why their uncontrollable need for control has left them feeling broken and what it is about their past or present that leads them to seek comfort in the oscillating consumption and restriction of food. Using her trademark humour, in SHADES OF HOPE Tennie offers practical solutions and a step-by-step programme that teaches you how to let go of the bad feelings that have imprisoned you and the never-ending cycle of diets, binges, negative behaviour and broken promises.
