The Emotional Eating Workbook: A Proven-Effective, Step-By-Step Guide to End Your Battle with Food and Satisfy Your Soul


Weight loss by itself won’t change your life or bring true happiness.  When you are connected to your authentic self, you’ll no longer hate your body and you’ll find your life no longer includes an obsession with food and weight.

The Emotional Eating Workbook is the only book to explain how this is done.  Not only does it discuss the Five Levels of The Anchor Program, but it also provides specific instructions on a week by week basis that will demystify and integrate these healing tools into your daily life.
