Nov. 28, 2012 - PRLog -- Burlington, VT - “In life with diabetes, a meal is never just a meal,” writes Ginger Vieira, author of Emotional Eating with Diabetes, published this month in paperback, eBook, and audio book (http://www.emotionaleatingwithdiabetes.com). “It’s hardly surprising that the weight of living with this high-maintenance disease also comes with an insanely immense pressure to eat all the right foods at exactly the right times. That pressure can lead to a messy, confused, imbalanced relationship with food.”

Vieira, who has lived with both type 1 diabetes and celiac disease since 1999, has focused her second self-published book on this issue around eating after developing a series of steps and exercises for her diabetes coaching clients in her own business, Living in Progress – Wellness and Diabetes Coaching (http://www.living-in-progress.com). In addition to being a certified coach, she is a certified personal trainer, Ashtanga yoga instructor, and has a B.S. in Professional Writing from Champlain College. Also the author of Your Diabetes Science Experiment, Vieira is well known in the diabetes online community originally for diabetes video blogs on YouTube, and her accomplishments in drug-tested powerlifting during 2009 and 2010, setting 15 records across several amateur federations. Today, she writes regularly for Diabetes Daily, Insulin Nation, and Diabetes Forecast magazine.

Working with clients world-wide over the phone and via video chat, Vieira says this self-destructive facet of diabetes and eating is all too common, and rarely spoken of out loud.

Emotional eating, she explains, is the result of being told by every doctor, parent, spouse, friend and magazine that a person with diabetes shouldn’t eat “this” and can’t eat “that.” The constant barrage of pressure to eat the perfect diet builds up, and results in an overwhelming habit of punishing yourself with food.

“Whether or not you have diabetes, eating perfectly is near impossible for most people. A person with diabetes is lectured constantly, and expected to be perfect—it’s simply not realistic,” says Vieira.

“Instead, this book will help you not only acknowledge your current behaviors around food, it will also teach you how to plan for your imperfections and eat a diet that is mostly very healthy, with plenty of room for treats.”

In the end, Vieira says her goal for her clients and readers is to help them see all food as just food by taking the limitations and guilt-traps off of everything. She guides her clients, and readers, to create a nutrition plan for themselves that is 80 to 90 percent healthy, with 20 percent of their food coming from food they once labeled as “off-limits” or “forbidden.”

With the support of her alma mater’s recently developed Champlain College Publishing Initiative that engages undergraduate students in the production of book publishing, Vieira’s self-published guide is available on Amazon in both paperback and eBook,  and through CDbaby.com in audio form.

“It’s not about being perfect,” explains Vieira. “It’s actually about giving yourself room to be imperfect, and setting yourself up for success by planning for those imperfections. In other words, making room in your diet for ice cream while doing your best to taking your insulin properly and checking your blood sugar regularly.”
