This book explores how mindful eating can affect your mental health and relationships; and it explores the themes of being "hangry" (a combination of hungry+angry), how overeating can lead you to feeling “regretfull” (getting overly full and regretting your behaviour), and “hangxiety” describing how allowing yourself to get overly hungry can make you feel anxious.
Many people with eating disorders don't feel like they are "sick enough" to warrant professional help, but this book identifies warning signs and ways to cope that people with eating disorders and their supporters can use.
Peace Meal covers topics related to eating disorders, body image issues, and how society may contribute to distorted thinking.
