The Enneagram of Eating : How the 9 Personality Types Influence Your Food, Diet, and Exercise Choices Paperback / softback


A guide to using your Enneagram personality type to understand your approach to eating, dieting, and exercise. Have you ever wondered why some people seem to adore food, while others find eating simply a need?

Why some people just love to work out and others absolutely abhor anything to do with physical exercise?

Why some love entertaining, while others would rather spend a quiet evening alone?

In The Enneagram of Eating, Ann Gadd reveals how the well-known Enneagram system of personality types can explain your relationship to food and exercise.

Including an easy Enneagram food-personality test to find your type, she devotes a full chapter to each of the 9 personality types.

She provides an understanding of each type's emotional eating triggers, including the emotional wounds and childhood patterns that formed them, what exercise regime will keep you motivated, why you entertain the way you do (or don't), and the best methods for weight loss or gain. Gadd shows how knowing how each type reacts around food will make it easier for us to alter our subconscious programming and become not only physically, but emotionally healthier.

Offering fascinating insight into our subconscious attitudes toward food, she aims to inspire you to become more aware of your approach to eating in general, so you can develop healthier and happier ways of being.
