Healing Your Hungry Heart: Recovering from Your Eating Disorder

About This Book

A resource to help you overcome the struggle of emotional eating, realize your self-worth and live the life you deserve.

One in five women suffers from eating disorders. While this issue is primarily associated with teenage girls, doctors report that a growing number of women are also developing these disorders later in life or have hidden these problems for years.

For women in their thirties, forties, fifties, and beyond, issues of loss from divorce, death, empty nest syndrome, marriage, and career pressures can trigger an eating disorder. Healing Your Hungry Heart is that friend you can lean on.

Psychotherapist Joanna Poppink offers a comprehensive and effective recovery program for women with eating disorders, based on her thirty-year professional practice treating adults with anorexia, bulimia, and binge eating. For women struggling with emotional eating, this book offers hope, understanding, and real solutions.

Reader Reviews

Polly – I loved the chapter on boundaries. She explains how a lack of personal boundaries can leave us feeling powerless. She offers ways to create healthy boundaries with our food, sleep and even friends.

Nancy – As a mother of an ED kid I wanted to thank Joanna for writing this amazing book! [She} helps those who suffer ED but also helps their loved ones.

Amy – I have never read anything that hits home as much I bought one for my therapist, too!

Paula – The very first chapter of Joanna’s book gripped me as Joanna honestly and bravely unraveled her personal story and journey to recovery entwined with her journey to becoming a professional therapist in the area of eating disorders.

Marie – explores issues, which were not yet studied enough and talk about – like the chapter on sexuality issues.

Adele – A great contribution.
