Book, Workbook, & Audio CD's

Through The Eden Diet Book & Workbook, you'll learn how to make your hunger pangs work for you. You'll identify and beat your emotional eating triggers, mindless eating habits, and those sinful urges that lead you to eat for taste when you're not actually hungry. And you'll learn techniques for eating properly at social events, parties, and at ala carte and buffet restaurants.

Audio CD's: To reinforce your Eden Diet experience, Dr. Hancock has
created audio relaxation exercises filled with positive, godly, weight loss affirmations. They may be used at the end of workshop meetings or in the privacy and comfort of your own home.
