Are you hooked on food?

Millions of people around the world are caught in a painful struggle with food, whether it’s chronic overeating, incessant cravings, food addiction, yo-yo dieting, disordered eating, obsession with weight, or simply a relentless preoccupation with food. Despite doing everything in their power to end the struggle, they remain hooked, year after year.

In Unhooked, holistic nutritionist Laura Dawn explains why the struggle with food is so prevalent, how she finally found freedom by healing her relationship with food, and how you can do it, too.

What You Will Learn

Through its easy-to-implement expert advice, holistic perspective, and concrete action steps, you’ll find that food will become your friend rather than your worst enemy, fueling your transformation toward a vibrant, healthy, and happy lifestyle—for good.

Unhooked offers a multidimensional framework that addresses food’s distinct “hooks” from six primary perspectives including:


1. Environmental: Learn how and why our food environment has drastically changed and purposefully keeps millions of people stuck in the struggle with food – and how you can learn how to navigate it to free yourself from struggle.

2. Physiological: Understand how the foods most readily available to you are highly addictive and what foods you should avoid if you want to get unhooked.


3. Behavioral: Learn how your habits keep you hooked and what you need to do in order to break bad habits and implement positive long lasting change, once and for all.

4. Mental: Discover how unconscious cues trigger you to mindlessly overeat and how you can implement mindful eating techniques to cultivate a healthier relationship with food.

5. Emotional
: Gain insight into how you may be using food as a coping mechanism to avoid feelings or emotions and how you can learn proven techniques to help you boost the feel-good chemicals in your brain so you no longer have to turn to food as a means of distraction.

6. Spiritual: Discover the true miracle of food, your body and your lifeand how living a life that you love with purpose and intention can help you to unhook yourself from the food struggle.

Each part is broken down into two chapters: Hooked and Unhooked. In the Hooked chapters, you will learn why you get hooked on your struggle with food from this particular perspective, and in the Unhooked chapters, I offer you suggestions on how to free yourself from the struggle.
