Lasagna for Lunch : Declaring Peace with Emotional Eating
By Mary Anne Cohen
In her second book, Lasagna for Lunch: Declaring Peace with Emotional Eating, Mary Anne Cohen explores why for many people, trusting food may be safer than trusting people. Food never leaves you, never rejects you, never criticizes you, never dies. It is the only relationship where we get to say when, where, and how much! Food is also the cheapest, most available, and most socially sanctioned mood-altering drug we can get. Ms. Cohen, Director of The New York Center for Eating Disorders for over forty years, gently guides readers to reclaim the vitality of their inner selves, taking back what has been hidden by a consuming relationship with food. Isolation with pastry, she says, needs to be replaced with intimacy with people. The author shows how emotional eating freezes feelings and pain and keeps people stuck. Specific healing strategies are described to help the thawing process. Lasagna for Lunch delves into issues of frozen grief and mourning, sexual abuse, substance abuse, men and eating disorders, healing negative body image, night-time binge eating syndrome, and pregnancy, as well as eating disorders in older women. Replete with in-depth case illustrations culled from her forty years of experience treating compulsive overeating, bulimia, and anorexia, Lasagna for Lunch offers a frank, behind-the-scenes look at what goes on in the healing experience of psychotherapy for emotional eating. The book reads like part novel, part detective story, with the author’s accumulated wisdom presented clearly and with humor. Lasagna for Lunch is a unique, information-packed mini-encyclopedia on eating disorders that will help emotional eaters and therapists alike.

Life Without Ed 10th Anniversary Edition: How One Woman Declared Independence from Her Eating Disorder and How You Can Too
By Jenni Schaefer with Thom Rutledge
Written in the tone of a true friend and infused with humor, Life Without Ed chronicles the baby steps, achievements, and challenges of overcoming an eating disorder in honest, forward prose. In therapy, Jenni learned to treat her eating disorder (“Ed”) as a relationship rather than an illness. The first stage of recovery from Ed was recognizing that “he” held tyrannical rule over her life, down to the last morsel of food, and that she must begin to see herself as separate from him—making room for her own unique voice and authentic self. In short, easy-to-read sections, Jenni takes you along her journey of “divorce” from Ed, sharing nuggets of wisdom that she learned along the way. The tenth anniversary edition includes a new afterword and sections devoted to men with eating disorders; family, friends and supporters; and treatment professionals. Combining a patient’s insights with a therapist’s prescriptions for success, the new edition also includes helpful ideas related to technology and an actual divorce decree to sign, pre-signed by Jenni as a witness to your own life without Ed.
