'Stop fighting with food and read this book!' Arianna Huffington, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Thrive

A proven neuroscience-based programme to heal your relationship with your body and food, from the world-renowned addiction psychiatrist and New York Times bestselling author of Unwinding Anxiety.

Eat this not that, count calories, exercise more, use your willpower ... how many of these guilt-laden dieting messages make you feel bad about why it's so hard to manage what and how you eat? Based on over 20 years of clinical research and Dr Brewer's work with thousands of patients, The Hunger Habit is the kindest and most effective approach to eating that you'll ever come across. It's the antidote to food shame and dieting. Using the power of curiosity and awareness, Dr Brewer's proven step-by-step programme will help you heal your relationship with food, reset eating triggers and resolve any long-held personal issues around self-esteem, anxiety, shame, anger and stress.

Dr Brewer will help you learn how to work with your brain rather than fight cravings. At the same time you will learn how to embrace setbacks and adopt an attitude of self-kindness instead of self-judgment, ultimately establishing new eating habits.

The Hunger Habit is not a diet book but, like many of his clients have already discovered, once you break out of your personal food jail, you'll find a changed relationship to eating leads to a newfound freedom and a lightness that comes from an inner well-being. No matter where you are now or how hopeless you feel about yourself, stress eating, overeating, binge eating or whatever your habits are, Dr Brewer's powerful book will help.

'A game-changing plan to change your relationship with food. Jud Brewer gets at the heart of our struggles with advice, analysis, and inspiring stories based in science but full of compassion and understanding. This is the book we need right now!'
- Annie Grace, author of This Naked Mind

'Judson Brewer offers a potent recipe for healing unhealthy eating habits: Blend together an understanding of how the brain works with the power of awareness itself. For the countless humans who struggle with craving, this book is filled with life-giving insights and tools!'
- Tara Brach, author of Radical Acceptance and Radical Compassion

'If you're looking to heal your relationship with food, the solution rarely lies entirely in changing what you eat. Jud Brewer empowers us to let go of our unhelpful habits and trade them in for helpful, long-lasting ones using cutting-edge neuroscience, practical mindfulness, relatable stories, and real-life examples. This book isn't about restrictive diets or obsessions - it's about finding hope, empowerment, and real, lasting recovery.'
- Molly Carmel, author of Breaking Up With Sugar

'This book takes a radically new approach to understanding overeating. It counters shame for overeating by emphasizing how our brains engage in habit formation outside of our conscious awareness. More importantly, it shows readers how to become more conscious and self-compassionate about what's happening and learn new, healthier eating habits. A significant contribution to understanding how to counter overeating.'
- Kristin Neff, PhD, author of Self-Compassion
