The No S Diet is just guidelines for learning to eat moderately consistently. It's not meant for eating disorders and the author admits he's not an expert, but he believes it really doesn't take experts to deal with most overeating, especially in people who don't have any health issues. I found it's just the right mix of orderly eating and limited free eating. I've been using it for 32 months. I know some of its principles and ideas fly in the face of much of what we've been told, but I've just found I've been able to tolerate a lot of the emotional issues better just resolving to stick to the eating plan no matter what. nosdiet.com/

Judith Beck has three books on using cognitive therapy to lose weight. Dieting is contraindicated for recovering from eating disorders, so whenever she talks about getting thin or limiting calories, I just think "sane eating." Her principles of thinking still helped me learn to stick to my plan. It's pretty much second nature most days of the week.

Her third book does deal with some tactics for dealing with emotional eating. emoticon

The most helpful combination I've found is Judith Beck's last book on dieting and the No S Diet www.nosdiet.com/ . Some of the two contradict each other because Beck is a big believer in tracking calories and planning beforehand while Engels just uses the millions of people in the world who don't do that but eat moderately and are slim. The National Weight Loss Registry does show good results from the VERY SMALL PERCENTAGE of people who have lost and maintained counting calories, but the French and Italians have the lowest BMI"s in Europe with no calorie counting. Anyway, the fight goes on. I just know I lost my 31 pounds without calorie counting and I'm in my normal BMI range. I don't care if I could be thinner being more analytical about it.

Anyway, Beck's fantastic thinking strategies have helped me implement Engels' reasonable eating guidelines (similar to Europeans') and I have greatly reduced my emotional eating. Granted, before I read his book, I had been dealing with my emotions and stresses for years but had never found a plan that was reasonable and easy enough. So, they came together. Now it's mostly just the way I live, though I do have to monitor myself some. I think most adults do.

I've been reading a book called "GET OUT of that PIT" by Beth Moore. It really helps me but I'll also look up the book that you mentioned. Every little thing helps... emoticon

nope I have not, I have a 12 step program I use ;)

" Taking ACTION is the ultimate power of Motivation. Nothing beats it, period."
`~`~`~`~`~`~`~`~`~`~`~`~
Do not stop enjoying the wonders of life despite the inevitable hurting that impairs our soul. Hence, it does not make you less of a person when you weep in tears and are in distress. Nonetheless, learn to withstand the stings of time; rise on your feet for no one can ever bring back the soul in you and the beauty of life except you, and you and you."

I did read it years ago. It was one book along the journey. I think it probably helped but my impression is that it was a little too complicated in its eating recommendations, though I also think the idea of having fair eating guidelines that you stick to quite strictly (yet not swearing off any food and not greatly cutting calories) is quite helpful. I think it's worth a read, if you can get it from a library. emoticon

Has anyone read and found the book called Conquer Your Food Addiction (the Ehrlich 8-step program) useful?

A year from now you will wish you had started today.
