Eating, Drinking, Overthinking

The Toxic Triangle of Food, Alcohol, and Depression--and How Women Can Break Free

Susan Nolen-Hoeksema

Holt Paperbacks

A noted expert on women and depression offers a guide to balancing women's relationship to eating, alcohol, and overthinking
Based on extensive original research, Eating, Drinking, Overthinking is the first book to show women how they can navigate the often painful and destructive worlds of the title.
While it is widely known that women suffer from depression in disproportionately large numbers, what is less well known is the extent to which many women use food and alcohol to regulate their moods. Integrating the insights of her popular first book, Women Who Think Too Much, Yale psychologist Susan Nolen-Hoeksema has written a pathbreaking and highly readable account of the ways in which eating, drinking, and overthinking, can wreak havoc on women's emotional well-being, physical health, relationships, and careers.
As Eating, Drinking, Overthinking reveals, the coping strategies that lead women into the "toxic triangle" can be turned around to guide them out of it. Instead of letting negative thoughts gain the advantage, Nolen-Hoeksema provides exercises to help women manage their thoughts and maintain a balanced perspective.
