"If you struggle with compulsive eating, here is my promise to you: I will show you how to lose your excess weight and keep it off permanently -- but only if you are ready to make a serious commitment."
-- Caryl Ehrlich
Nobody can successfully cajole, argue, or prod another person into shedding those excess pounds. It just doesn't work. The commitment has to come from within. But if you are ready to go for it, the Ehrlich 8-step program for permanent weight loss is a godsend. It is not a diet. It does not tell you what foods you must eat or which ones to avoid. There is no need to count the calories, fat grams, or carbohydrates you consume. The perfect solution for compulsive eaters, it is a behavioral approach to weight loss that teaches you how to change habits to overcome food addiction. Caryl Ehrlich, a former compulsive eater, developed this program twenty-six years ago for herself and has taught it to participants in her program with successful results for twenty years.
As Ehrlich observes, no deprivation diet will work for food addicts, because they use food the way other addicts use drugs or alcohol: not to satisfy physical hunger but to stuff down painful feelings -- loneliness, anger, boredom, sadness, and the like -- with a never-ending conveyor belt of food. "If you're eating for physical satisfaction, you don't really need to eat very much. But if you're eating to narcotize, you could back up a truck full of food to your home or office and it still wouldn't be enough."
Conquer Your Food Addiction shows you how to develop the skills necessary to approach food in a new way, and learn how to distinguish physical hunger from emotional hunger. The program explains the trickiness of addiction so that overeaters become aware of their unconscious, ritualized eating habits and awaken to a new, realistic relationship with food. Binge eating, guilt, and anxieties about food and body image will be dramatically lessened as understanding increases. Using original concepts and easy assignments, this proven program retrains the thought process so you see food in a new, better, and healthier way.

Caryl Ehrlich has had an extraordinary record of success with the Ehrlich 8-step program, a behavioral approach to permanent weight loss for food addicts. It is one of the longest-running programs of its kind; Ehrlich has maintained it for over twenty years, supporting it as host of a radio program on WMCA in New York, and more recently with her current television show on Manhattan Cable. She lives and teaches in New York City.From Publishers Weekly:
This behavioral approach to losing weight is divided into eight weekly sessions in which participants work to overcome their addictive eating habits and strive to meet a personal weight-loss goal. The author, a self-described compulsive eater, is a counselor who designed this nutrition program and currently uses it with clients. Although Ehrlich asserts that her rather complicated plan is not a diet with food prohibitions, no one who faithfully follows it will overeat. Based on limiting the number of food types that can be consumed at each meal, this system, according to Ehrlich, will change ritualized compulsive eating into planned, healthy consumption. For example, breakfast should consist of one or two items, lunch can include two to three items and dinner may contain three to four elements, such as a piece of meat, a starch and a vegetable. She also recommends drinking 10 glasses of water a day and prohibits diet sodas and finger foods. Above all, Ehrlich stresses that readers need to change their habits with regard to food: all meals should take at least 20 relaxed minutes to be consumed, each item should be entered in a food log the author details here and meals should be planned ahead of time.
