Praise for Outsmarting Overeating In Outsmarting Overeating, once again Karen R. Koenig engages the reader with new twists on critical issues like handling emotions, eating 'normally, and reaching goals. She clearly presents practical, accessible, and effective life skills for taking care of yourself. Leigh Cohn, MAT, CEDS, editor in chief of Eating Disorders: The Journal of Treatment and Prevention Essential self-care skills are usually the missing component of problematic eating. Outsmarting Overeating shows you how to effectively navigate life by focusing on key life skills that we all need for decision making, problem solving, critical thinking, communication, and coping with emotions and stress. Readers will appreciate Karen Koenig s friendly writing style. I highly recommend this book. Evelyn Tribole, MS, RD, coauthor of Intuitive Eating Outsmarting Overeating does more than offer a solid, step-by-step approach to building a healthy relationship with food and eating. It offers a thoughtful, compassionate, effective path for healing your life, emotions, and relationships. Highly recommended! Donald Altman, MA, LPC, author of One-Minute Mindfulness and Art of the Inner Meal If you find that your relationship to food and eating is a problem and you want to find a way to change it without dieting, Outsmarting Overeating is sure to add some wonderful tools to your toolbox. Karen R. Koenig s newest book elevates the self-help genre to a whole new level of writing that will benefit every reader! Megrette Fletcher, MEd, RD, CDE, cofounder of The Center for Mindful Eating and coauthor of Eat What You Love, Love What You Eat with Diabetes This is a nurturing, realistic system for developing healthy life skills and then applying them to eating behaviors. Anna Jedrziewski, Retailing Insight Praise for Karen R. Koenig s Previous Books: What [The Rules of 'Normal Eating] offers is a perspective on working through some of the many misbeliefs and setbacks that prevent many of us from eating a 'normal diet. Karen outlines what each rule would look like in real life, and gives practical advice for how to start to change lifelong habits into healthier ones. Rebecca Bitzer, The Nutrition Experts, EmpoweredEatingBlog.com Using humor, plain talk, examples from her clinical experience, reflection exercises, case studies, and homework, Koenig lets troubled eaters know that their yo-yo patterns of eating and self-care are due to conflicts. She shies away from easy answers and, instead, provides hope and concrete actions to developing a permanent, positive relationship with food. Midwest Book Review Since women, at least those of us in the Western World, are socialized to be pleasers, Karen Koenig has written a wonderful book to help us save ourselves from ourselves....[Nice Girls Finish Fat] is deceptively simple and chock-full of stories to help readers see themselves in the lessons she teaches. She is a master clinician. Dr. Beth Erickson, author of Marriage Isn t for Sissies What Every Therapist Needs to Know about Treating Eating and Weight Issues is a wonderful tool for therapists to gain more insight on the occasional eating and weight problems in clients.
