"Food addiction is real. It's also discouraging, and the endless diets are exhausting and in most cases, worthless. In Food Triggers, Dr. Rhona shares how she won the 'food fight' and brings the wonderful worlds of science and faith together to chart a brilliant path to freedom and self-control. What are you waiting for?"--DR. TIM CLINTON, President of the American Association of Christian Counselors "The big dilemma in conquering food addiction is that you can't just quit using like an alcoholic or a drug addict. The need to continue to eat exposes us to many triggers that take over our appetites. Add to that the emotional and relational triggers, it is no wonder so few people keep the weight off. Dr. Epstein has the answer to this dilemma. From her own experience, research and the experience of others she provides a way to put your triggers on safety. If you struggle with weight as I have, you will find something new and very helpful in Food Triggers."--STEPHEN ARTERBURN, Author of Every Man's Battle, Founder of New Life Ministries, Women of Faith "If you can't put down the fork, if you never have leftovers, if you're always hungry but never full, if your addiction to food is running your life- buy this book and let it set you free!"--DANIEL G. AMEN, MD, Author of Change Your Brain, Change Your Body "A masterpiece of a roadmap designed to bring love, acceptance, freedom, and, most of all, balance back into the lives of those torn up by the claws of addictions."--LINDSAY ROBERTS, Author, speaker, and co-host of The Place for Miracles and host of Make Your Day Count "As someone who struggled most of my life with food, I wish I could have given this book to myself years ago!"--MICHELLE AGUILAR, Author of Becoming Fearless and Season 6 winner of The Biggest Loser "Dr. Rhona has the unique and potent combination of her personal recovery experience as well as professional training to help those still suffering. Her book brings to life what food addiction is, the research that substantiates it, and hope for anyone still suffering. There is a way to freedom!"--KIM DENNIS, MD, CEDS, CEO and Medical Director, Timberline Knolls
