I wrote last week about slipping back into emotional eating as opposed to eating when my body actually requires food. A little like Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter series, when I need answers, I go to libraries. This time I was lucky enough to find The Emotional First Aid Kit: A Practical Guide to Life after Bariatric Surgery by Cynthia L. Alexander, PsyD.
Cynthia Alexander has spent many years working with bariatric patients both pre- and post- surgery. She's heard all the excuses and can teach you how to think logically and refute them. She also knows a ton of tips and tricks to help clients end negative self-talk, practice behavior modification, and start eating properly.
