Book Review of -- Binge Eating: The Ultimate Guide To Overcome Food Addiction by George K.

My overall star rating --- 3

About the book:
In "The Ultimate Guide To Overcome Food Addiction, Overeating And Binge Eating", you will learn specific step-by-step strategies to help you to overcome any Craving or urge to Overeat or Binge eat. While many books will tell you not to eat certain foods and give you strategies to help you stop consuming them, they only deal with symptoms and not the root cause. The source of binge eating or food addiction can be a variety of factors, such as having certain emotions trigger a binge (like being depressed, sad, bored, or tired), or it could be a deficiency in certain nutrients, or it could be just a pattern that you've conditioned in the past.

The review --
This wasn't a bad overview of an attempt to give advice on food addiction (overeating), and is not a bad read either. It's all pretty much common sense, though, and there is little here that anyone with a modicum of that (rare I admit nowadays), will necessarily find useful. There are some interesting points made, particularly on eating the right foods that make you feel full (something I admit I never really considered). However, unless I missed it, there is nothing on the importance of seeing your doctor before you begin any sort of program like this. Visualization (or positive re-enforcement, whatever they call it today) is one of the points mentioned for motivating you to eat better. While I know Scott Adams had a lot of success with it, that's almost too new age-y to include in a primer like this. I like the pictures of the dogs at the end of the book. The formatting is a bit lacking. As I've said before, it's readable, but it's in a block paragraph format, with extremely small line spaces between paragraphs. I read this on a Kindle Fire and it was hard to discern at times where paragraphs ended, making it seem a page of text. Probably not. I dislike authors, particularly self-help authors, who use such moronic pseudonyms, like "George K.". If this is a workable system, use your real name, man!
