In this early work, teaming up with dietitian Nadine Taylor, Dr. Bulik addresses the emerging trend of women struggling to cope with the stress of menopause, empty nest syndrome, caring for ailing parents, work overload, and the cultural emphasis on youth and beauty. They describe how more and more women find themselves eating compulsively to ease tension, manage anxiety, quell depression, and distract themselves from what’s really eating them. Bulik and Taylor team up to present a patient-tested 8-step program to help women regain a healthy relationship with food.
