Joanna Poppink, MFT“Beck shares her personal experience in recovering from emotional eating through 12-step programs. She then shows us how 12-step recovery can be incorporated into our lives while honoring our own belief systems. She shows us how to integrate 12-step thinking with psychotherapy and many energy healing techniques as well as visualizations, journal keeping and food diaries.

What I most admire about Stop Eating Your Heart Out is that the themes of enriching personal spirituality, honoring the authentic self and respecting self worth permeate her chapters as she shares techniques the reader can use with others or alone to free herself from emotional eating.

Beck's book is a valuable contribution in the field of emotional eating recovery. Readers will gain personal insight as well as practical tools for healing and living well. Meryl has written a wonderful book that demystifies 12-step recovery and brings the healing tools within 12-step programs to us all.”
