I write. I write for work and for family occasions. My day-to-day life is organized with notes. I love lists. Perhaps an ancient respect for the written word factors in my extensive use of this medium. I know how to write. I get feedback on the quality of my writing and today I can also give myself feedback and focus on the specifics of my writing. I did not think about writing this book and did not seriously consider the writing process beforehand. At a professional conference on psychology and personality, I received an offer to write a book. I see everything, large and small, as part of a pre-decided-upon plan that I am meant to take part of—a fate-like mandate or God’s divine guidance. I did not approach this book as a finished product but rather as an opportunity to gather and connect different topics and longstanding interests. I merged my personal and professional self, in all its diversity. Throughout Food and Emotions: From Emotional Feeding to Emotional Eating, I relate to feeding in infancy, to food, to how it is eaten, to its purpose in our world. I explore the concepts of emotional eating, compulsive eating and overeating.
