OVER EATING | EMOTIONAL EATING | HABITS
THE POWER OF HABIT – Charles Duhigg
THE HUNGRY BRAIN – Stephan J. Guyenet
BRAIN OVER BINGE – Kathryn Hansen
NEVER BINGE AGAIN – Glenn Livingston Ph.D.
WHAT ARE YOU HUNGRY FOR – Dr. Deepak Chopra
My top three MUST READS:
“The hungry brain” – this book made me understand WHY I was binge eating! I always felt like in a way my body was against me. Guyenet explains how our brains work and why they respond in such an extreme way to so called highly “palatable” foods: “our appetites and food choices are led astray by ancient, instinctive brain circuits that play by the rules of a survival game that no longer exists. And these circuits don’t care about how you look in a bathing suit next summer.”
PLEASE READ THIS BOOK if you are struggling with overeating!!! It’s only available in English though.
“What are you hungry for” – this really helped me emotionally to stay aware when it comes to food intake and to develop a much healthier attitude towards food and the process of eating itself: “Overeating is often a symptom of ‘inner starvation’ – a hunger for love, self-esteem, happiness and security. By changing our approach to eating we can heal our bodies and minds.”
“The Power of habit” – explains why we do what we do in our every day lives. Most actions we take are based on habits. This book explains the neuroscience behind our behaviors and dictions and gives helpful self-improvement tips.
THE MIND-GUT CONNECTION – Emeran Mayer
GUT: THE INSIDE STORY OF OUR BODY’S MOST UNDER-RATED ORGAN – Giulia Enders
SCHLANK! – Dr. Anne Fleck
HOW NOT TO DIE
LIFE CHANGING FOODS – Anthony William
MEDICAL MEDIUM – Anthony William
THYROID HEALING – Anthony William
The Medical Medium Books may appear a bit …over the top, like reeeeally spiritual partly but in so many cases and areas I just feel that Anthony Williams is right. I think these books really help to get an understanding of natural healing though I don’t think that you need to follow all the rules that strictly 🙂
“Schlank!” – only available in German: Lasst euch nicht von diesem oberflächlichen Titel beirren! Das Buch gibt einen unheimlich guten und verständlichen Einblick in das Thema gesunde Ernährung und selbst fortgeschrittene Gesundheitsjunkies können noch etwas lernen 🙂 Der Fokus liegt vor allem auf dem Bereich Darmgesundheit. Neben Ernährungstipps (wie pflegt man die Darmflora), gibt es hilfreiche Entspannungsübungen, Anleitung zur Bauchmassage, Tipps um Heißhungerattacken entgegen zu wirken und einige Rezepte für eine (eher) kohlenhydratarme und antientzündliche Ernährung.
THE UNTETHERED SOUL – Michael A. Singer
A NEW EARTH – Eckhart Tolle
THE UNIVERSE HAS YOUR BACK – Gabrielle Bernstein
SOUL SURVIVOR – Andrea Leininger
I honestly think these books aren’t even that spiritual. I highly recommend getting into this kind if spirituality. It really helped me to deal with difficulties that naturally occur in everyones lives !
absolute must reads:
“the untethered soul”– this book was LIFE-CHANGING! It really touched my soul … and I recommend it to every good friend of mine ❤
If you are struggling with getting into meditation – read it! If you are searching for who you really are – read it! If you need to stop your overthinking mind – read it! : “Are you a physical body? A collection of experiences and memories? A partner to relationships? Each time you consider aspects of yourself, you realize that there is much more to you than any of these can define.” …its intention is really similar to Eckhart Tolle’s “A new earth”. If you have to decide, I recommend reading “the untethered soul” first. I just loved the way it was written and it resonated so deeply with my soul & inner truth!
“soul survivor” – if you were always wondering if there is something like life after death – read this book! The story is just beautiful, magical and eye opening. It’s written by Andrea Leininger, mother of (back then) little James who started having horrible nightmares of crashing with a plane in world war II at a very young age: “James began to reveal details of planes and war tragedies that no two-year-old boy could know […] From these tantalising clues, James’s parents travelled thousands of miles and spent many long years piecing together these facts to find an answer …”
