Remember the old Lays® Potato Chips slogan “Bet you can’t eat just one”? Psychologist Rhona Epstein says we all have foods that can trigger overeating. Food Triggers shows how to work with your body chemistry to gain total freedom from such impulse eating.
A licensed psychologist and certified addictions counselor, Epstein brings insights learned through her own battle with addictive eating to deliver tangible action steps to overcome eating issues. It is written for people who are currently battling an unhealthy relationship with food. Food Triggers is full of practical applications from Scripture, genuine compassion and true stories of struggle and success. This book helps readers understand that addictive eating is a physical, emotional and spiritual problem that must be addressed on all three levels in order to achieve true freedom. Food Triggers isn’t just another diet book; it is truly a food addict’s roadmap to the Promised Land—the land of success, peace and total freedom.

First off let me tell my readers that I am doing a giveaway on this book you can get the info. at the end of my review!
This was a hard book for me to do a review on as I think I was expecting something else from this book. I guess I presumed it covered another issue. As this subject is not something that I struggle with as an individual. Overall, it was an interesting read for me and I learned something new.
Dr. Epstein shares her heart fully within the pages of this book. I do have to say that Dr. Epstein does an excellent job of talking about how you need God first when approaching an eating disorder from a Christian perspective. She also emphasizes prayer and how important a relationship with God is. Dr. Epstein talks about how you can daily build your faith and how to incorporate a relationship with God into your life. Scripturally solid and she does a great job.
She is very passionate about this subject as she has overcame an eating disorder herself. This is just a book you will have to decide for yourself. I am not totally 100% sold on the food trigger issue but that’s easy to say when it’s not an issue I know enough about or have faced myself in all fairness. I feel that it is a subject that I just don’t know enough about to give my opinion on.
