Product Features

Eating Less by Gillian Riley focuses solely on the issue of food addiction and overeating, and Riley proposes several methods for overcoming these issues, backed up solely by her expertise as an addiction counselor. Her book covers a variety of topics, including the issue behind overeating and methods for treating the source of overeating, such as stress, anxiety, or depression. From there several methods are offered for learning new ways to eat, including retraining the body to eat according to hunger cues and how to eat to boost one’s health instead of stimulating weight loss. The tips are very simple and do not involve adhering to any specific diet to complete. This seems to focus on eliminating disordered eating, and may not have any helpful ramifications for dieters, although dieters are saying there are numerous benefits from reading this book. Dieter response is huge — numerous testimonials applaud Riley for offering unique, simple tips for overcoming overeating issues. As with all diets, however, it may not provide the type of advice sought out by some dieters, especially those who want to try a diet instead of tackling eating issues.
