Do you feel guilty after eating a food you consider “bad”, as if you’ve done something wrong? Are you someone who avoids different foods because you fear eating them? “What if I gain 10 pounds from eating this?” “Will this food sabotage my health goals?”
If so, it’s time to find freedom with food again.
What the critics are saying…
“Written by a nutrition professional, this book is a useful tool for anyone working to recover from an eating disorder, free themselves from the rules and rigidity of disordered eating, or wanting to heal their relationship with food by breaking away from the dieting mentality that pervades our society. In a nutshell, Sunny is acknowledging what few are willing to admit ~ that recovery and finding freedom with food requires education, support, real-life experiences and purposeful action. At a minimum, it requires facts and truths to dispel the myths. Infused with recipes, each chapter offers the wisdom of an experienced clinician alongside scientific evidence and practical strategies to guide your journey to freedom.”

“If you fear food as being the fattening enemy, Sunny’s book can help you transform those fears into positive fueling. I particularly like the “How to” sections in each chapter; for example, how to start consuming carbs, how to enjoy the flavor of fats; how to savor sweets, how to reduce anxiety at a restaurant, how to manage an exercise program, etc.) Helpful explanations for why the nutrients in food are essential, in addition to the yummy recipes and the “how to” tips, offer readers the tools needed to march forward towards recovery from eating issues and find peace with food.”
