Show synopsis For the millions of people with bulimia regaining a healthy relationship to food is an uphill battle with much at stake. This workbook presents a revolutionary approach to the treatment of bulimia and similar eating disorders through ACT. Unlike other treatment programs this workbook encourages readers to mindfully accept their deepest fears and concerns about food, eating, and their bodies, and learn to shift their focus to what really matters in their lives apart from their weight and eating habits. Instead of making sweeping, made-to-be-broken promises about ending disordered eating habits for good, this workbook helps readers make small promises day by day, based on the present moment, such as "I'm not bingeing right now". Written in a warm and compassionate style, this workbook helps readers become more flexible and open to change, and then gradually make the shift to a life free of disordered eating and focused on living according to their deepest values. The workbook includes an audio CD featuring additional worksheets and guided meditations.
