Since adolescence Geneen Roth has gained and lost more than a thousand pounds. She has been dangerously overweight and dangerously underweight plagued by shame and self hatred. Then one day on the verge of suicide she ended the war. She began trusting her body and questioning her beliefs. It worked and she wrote about it in the bestseller When Food Is Love. Now three decades later Geneen adds a profound new dimension to her work.
We have all heard the cliché "You are what you eat," but according to Geneen Roth, a more divine presence may be hiding in your food as well. Expanding on the ideas she first presented in her bestseller WHEN FOOD IS LOVE, Roth shows how each person's relationship with food can serve as a useful microcosm for gauging their overall state of well-being and for diagnosing their path to fulfillment and enlightenment. Roth, whose previous book documented how she conquered her addiction to compulsive dieting, reveals the many connections between our diet and our emotions, and provides a wealth of tips on how to draw the line between sustenance and indulgence.
The author of the best-selling When Food Is Love likens overeating to an addiction intended to numb painful emotions and counsels readers to eat in accordance with seven key guidelines and with a greater awareness of actual needs. (self-help). A best-selling book.
