You Don’t Need Food to Self-Soothe
According to experts, 75 percent of overeating is emotional eating. For readers wondering why they are eating so much, comes a 21-day path to recovery.
Don’t feed your feelings. We turn to food for comfort and rely on soul food to cope with everyday stress, anxiety, and everything in between. In Stop Eating Your Heart Out, professional clinical counselor Meryl Hershey Beck teaches us that contrary to popular belief, you don’t have to eat your heart out.
Control your cravings. Different types of eating disorders are marked by cycles of compulsive eating. Rather than focus on weight loss, Beck teaches us to recognize emotional eating and out of control comfort eating. With humorous anecdotes, learned wisdom, and informational insights she teaches readers to control cravings and live in recovery.
Compulsive eating is conquerable. Consider Stop Eating Your Heart Out to be brain food. Disclosing her very personal struggle with food and overcoming binge eating Beck doesn’t just use the Twelve-Step Recovery approach. She offers a multitude of effective self-help tools and assignments like:
- Inner Child work
- Creative visualizations and journaling
- Energy psychology techniques
If you want to learn how to stop overeating, and enjoyed books like Never Binge Again, Overcoming Binge Eating, or When Food Is Comfort, then you’ll love Stop Eating Your Heart Out.

"Beck, a licensed therapist with extensive experience treating eating disorders, takes a multifaceted approach to helping those with clinical eating problems overcome them. The book barely mentions food per se, but rather views eating disorders as brain-generated conditions, thus potentially brain-cured. A variety of approaches are suggested--one for each of the title's 21 days. Among the solutions offered are a 12-step program modified from Alcoholics Anonymous, journaling, finding a support group, developing spiritual growth through prayer and meditation, creative visualization, and undertaking personal energy work. An appendix includes a listing of various 12-step groups, online resources for information on eating disorders as well as eating disorder treatment centers, and, finally, an extensive list of recommended reading. VERDICT This book is not recommended for dieters but rather those with clinical eating disorders ready to undertake a great deal of work to seek treatment and wellness. Best for specialized health collections and public libraries with large health collections." --Olga B. Wise, Library Journal, Reviews
