NEW YORK, June 22, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Dr. Roger Gould, board-certified psychiatrist and one of the world's leading experts on emotional eating, will discuss the innovative ShrinkYourself™ program, which guides users to uncover and address the issues behind their emotional eating, on the next edition of H360 Live, to be webcast Tuesday, June 23 at 1 PM EDT on www.healtheo360.com, where it will also be archived.
Co-hosted by Dave Duplay, founder, president and CEO of healtheo360, and Courtland Long, MPH, H360 Live embodies the ethos of the healtheo360 mission: to serve as a social media "caring network" where patients living with chronic conditions, such as obesity, diabetes, cancer, mental illness, COPD and Alzheimer's, come to find support, encouragement and information. This interview with Dr. Gould is timely because obesity is the leading self-reported chronic condition among healtheo360 registered members.
Tomorrow, Dr. Gould will discuss with co-hosts Duplay and Long how ShrinkYourself™ guides users step-by-step through a process of identifying and resolving the underlying triggers behind their compulsion to seek comfort and relief in food. ShrinkYourself™ is based on an online therapeutic weight loss program originally developed over 30 years ago by Dr. Gould, who has been recognized by the Smithsonian Institution as a pioneer in the use of computers in psychotherapy.
"When our feelings become complex emotions like anxiety, depression, procrastination or self-loathing, then our turning to food to cope is often the result," said Dr. Gould. "ShrinkYourself™ expertly guides the user to not only face their emotions and stresses in life, but to heal them, so that turning to food to cope is no longer required."
Developed by The Business of Bettering, Inc., the all new ShrinkYourself™ program is the first in a series of mobile applications designed to address some of today's biggest public health issues, including depression, stress and addiction.
