Diet/binge. good food/bad food. punishment/reward. These are the compulsive eater's nightmares, a long-time pattern of recrimination and guilt that ultimately leads to more overeating and more weight gain. In an updated edition, here is the ground-breaking, step-by-step plan that doesn't control eating habits but cures them instead, once and for all. Overcoming Overeating will show you how to: 
* Give up dieting forever 
* Eat from true stomach hunger instead of "mouth hunger" 
* Stop overeating and lose weight naturally 
* Move beyond a preoccupation with eating and weight in order to live a more satisfying life

From Publishers Weekly

Jan 01, 1988 – Hirschman and Munter, who teach at Manhattan's New School for Social Research and conduct therapy groups, here present a three-part program to help overeaters to "live free in a world of food.'' The authors warn against dieting, with its weight-off-on-again discouragements, focusing on methods successfully adopted by their clients. Case histories dramatize the results of learning to distinguish ``stomach hunger''the body's legitimate need for sustenanceand artificial craving for treats as substitute for emotional satisfaction. Interviewees quoted here who have conquered food obsessions support the authors' claim that the program is revolutionary. The book is wordy but engagingly informal and accessible. It includes two questionnaires, one of which the authors request readers complete and return to them. First serial to Family Circle; Psychotherapy Book Club and Social Science Book Club selections.
