Conquering that insatiable desire to eat is a compulsion that many of us face as we try, often in vain, to overcome our obsession with food. In Denise Lamothe’s critically acclaimed book, "The Taming of the Chew", she describes the enemy as ‘the Chew’, that "hurtful, persistent, out-of-control part of each of us." According to Dr. Denise, ‘the Chew’ is what keeps overeaters from sticking with a healthy eating plan and can compel them to go on eating binges.
