Eat, Guilt, Repent, Repeat is a book written by Brenda J. Bentley, who is a therapist. She wrote this book after her own personal weight loss journey, which helped her lose more than 104 pounds. It is not a conventional diet book that features a weight loss plan, with recipes. It is instead a book that helps you cope with the mental aspects of food, so you can create a better relationship with food and be more successful in your weight loss ventures.

Product Features

Eat, Guilt, Repent, Repeat is the solution for people who are stuck yo-yo dieting, for people who feel like a failure when they cannot stick with a diet, people who always seem to be starting their new diet “tomorrow” and for people who use food to cope with stress and other emotion. The author maintains that if diets were strictly a physical problem, then diets would work, but because they only offer a “quick fix” the weight usually returns, with more on top of it. Because weight gain is usually a symptom of habitual behavior and emotional issues, you’ll never reach your goal permanently, unless you learn to address those issues. That’s where the book comes in. You’ll learn how to deal with the emotional issues that cause you to overeat, and you’ll get access to a variety of resources to help you. You’ll also learn techniques to overcome your excuses for not exercising, and you’ll learn how to use exercise as a coping mechanism.
