Description

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 spiraling 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 binge eating disorder in her early 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. With humor and compassion, Food: The Good Girl's Drug is about experiences shared by so many women-whether they've been struggling for years, or have recently admitted to themselves that, yes, it's more than just a bad habit.
