Emotional Eating "Shrink Yourself"

Continuing our review of Shrink Yourself by Roger Gould, MD finishes part I of the book with chapters 6, 7, and 8.

Chapter 6 is mainly about how overweight people shy away from being thin because of all the mechanisms they've learned to use their weight to avoid being put in situations that would require them to "shine" (my word), to avoid sexual issues... It's about how people hide behind fat.

Chapter 7 is the various rebellion issues that overweight people use to get even with their parents and those who criticized them as youngsters.

Chapter 8 is about using food to fill emptiness in one's life.

Overall these chapters provide interesting and informative information well worth reading for as they say, "if the shoe fits, wear it."

I'm looking forward to reviewing Part II.
