Can You Be Alone With a Bowl of Chocolate?
Let’s face it, Jewish people are obsessed with food. What Jewish event doesn’t include food? And who among us hasn’t been on a diet? And off a diet. And on a diet. We’re constantly fighting our inner brat who wants to eat whatever it wants! Our culture, as well as our environment, constantly sends messages to keep eating. And we ignore our inner sergeant/coach who cares about our health. We love to discuss food, watch food programs, and even get recipes from TikTok. But we are reluctant to discuss nutrition-related diseases like pre-diabetes, diabetes, heart disease, gut issues like gluten intolerance, and some cancers that often create the need to change our eating habits. In writing Can You Be Alone With a Bowl of Chocolate?, Dr. Berman-Levine helps you develop realistic goals drawn from over 40 years of behavioral nutrition counseling, and university teaching. Completing the thought-provoking activities will help you develop strategies to make healthy food choices with humor and without giving up your love of food.
