Do you find yourself heading to the fridge or the food cupboard when you’re feeling anxious, upset or simply bored?
Do you reach for a biscuit and then can’t stop till you’ve finished the packet or unwrap a bar of chocolate, intending to have just a couple of squares, but before you know it you’ve scoffed the lot?
If this sounds like you, then this week’s guest on Girls Around Town is here to help you out!
On the phone to the studio in the second hour of this week’s show, Liz Blatherwick will be talking about her new book, A Practical Self-help Guide to Managing Comfort Eating, which will be published in early September.
Packed with plenty of ways to help you think about and manage your relationship with food and weight, it’s based on a tried and tested 10-week course run by Liz and her former business partner Lesley Butlin.
Liz will be joining June this weekend to describe why she decided to write her first ever book, how it helps readers work out what they might really be hungry for when they eat emotionally and how trying some of the skills and exercises she suggests can help them begin to work out what works best for them.
The book’s already available for pre-orders but if you don’t want to wait till September to start changing your eating habits for the better, make sure you’re tuned to 107.8FM or listening online from 11.10am on Sunday when Liz will be sharing two or three of her top tips to help you identify some of your emotional eating triggers…
And improve your health and weight by replacing them with calorie-free skills to cope with your feelings!
