Simply put, when you increase your Emotional Intelligence, you naturally increase your ability to successfully manage your weight. Eat Q is therefore based on a combination of mindfullness and emotional regulation skills that help people lose weight, no matter how many times they've failed to manage their emotional eating in the past.
In the book, Albers educates readers about the link between a high Eat Q and a good relationship with food, and guides them through the most common emotional barriers to healthy and mindful eating. She offers more than 30 tools and techniques they can use to tailor the plan to their personal schedules, preferences, and moods.
There are numerous dieting books on the market, but Eat Q offers something new. The Eat Q method is grounded in dozens of clinical studies that associate a low Emotional Intelligence with poor eating habits (such as eating past fullness, turning to food when angry or bored, and overeating pleasurable foods even when your mind tells you to stop). The disordered and emotional eating that leads to weight gain-not to mention a lifetime of unhealthy eating-can be overcome through this practical, prescriptive, proactive approach. Susan Albers will show you how.
