'Deeply personal stories of hope and recovery . . . A comprehensive survey of the topic.'
- DR. DREW PINSKY
Bingeing, compulsive eating, food addiction, emotional overeating-no matter what you call it, too many women wrestle day to day with what they eat. It's a love-hate relationship that always seems to be spiralling out of control. Food: The Good Girl's Drug is one recovered binge eater's attempt to inject some sanity back into the discussion about food, body image, and overeating.
Sunny Sea Gold started fighting a binge eating disorder in her teens. But books on the topic were often aimed at housewives with kids and a white picket fence, women she had a hard time relating to. What about the girls who found themselves using all their roommate's peanut butter, nibbling from the work refrigerator, or hiding a stash of chocolate from boyfriends, and were too ashamed to say anything?
Calling on top mental health professionals, nutritionists, and fitness experts, Sunny offers real advice to a new generation fighting an age-old war. Filled with humor and compassion Food: The Good Girl's Drug is about experiences shared by so many women-whether they've been struggling their whole lives, or have recently admitted to themselves that, yes, it's more than just a bad habit.
'As I travel the country talking to young women about self-esteem, I find that far too many are obsessed with dieting and being thin . . . I'm happy I now have a book to recommend to them.'
- WHITNEY THOMPSON, winner of America's Next Top Model
