9781416543077: Women Food and God: An Unexpected Path to Almost Everything

No matter how sophisticated or wealthy or broke or enlightened you are, how you eat tells all.

If you suffer about your relationship with food—you eat too much or too little, think about what you will eat constantly or try not to think about it at all—you can be free. Just look down at your plate. The answers are there. Don’t run. Look. Because when we welcome what we most want to avoid, we contact the part of ourselves that is fresh and alive. We touch the life we truly want and evoke divinity itself.

Now, after three decades of studying, teaching and writing about what drives our compulsions with food, Geneen Roth adds a profound new dimension to her work in Women Food and God. She begins with her most basic concept: The way you eat is inseparable from your core beliefs about being alive. Your relationship with food is an exact mirror of your feelings about love, fear, anger, meaning, transformation and, yes, even God. She shows how going beyond both the food and feelings takes you deeper into realms of spirit and soul to the bright center of your own life, and reveals how your relationship with food is the doorway to freedom and what you want most: the demystification of weight loss, and the luminous presence that so many of us call "God."

A knock-your-socks-off ride to a deeply fulfilling relationship with food, your body...and almost everything else, Women Food and God is, quite simply, a guide for life.

From AudioFile:

Relationships with food are complex and, according to Roth, represent a person's relationship with the world. Setting aside comfort food and eating only when one is truly hungry may be an important step to facing the underlying causes of weight problems. The author is earnest and intensely sincere in narrating her book. Her subject matter is clearly important to her, and she reads with the conviction that she can improve the listener's life. However, she doesn't differentiate the voices of the people she quotes in the anecdotes throughout the book. As a result, the personal stories run together with the commentary, which reduces their effectiveness. J.E.M. AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine

Book Description Scribner Book Company, United States, 2010. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 216 x 135 mm. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. Geneen Roth s 1991 bestseller, When Food Is Love, spoke to a wide audience--including Oprah Winfrey, who embraced Roth s empowering message. Since then, Roth has taken the sum total of her experience and combined it with spirituality, psychology, and self-awareness to explain women s true hunger in Women, Food, and God . .Roth s approach to eating is the same as any addiction--it is an activity to avoid feeling emotions. From the first page, readers will be struck by Roth s intelligence, humor, and sensitivity, as she traces the path of overeating from its subtle beginning through its logical end. Whether the drug is booze or brownies, the problem is the same: opting out of life. Roth s premier advice is eat anything you want . She powerfully argues for personal investigation and urges readers to pay attention to what they truly need--and it usually cannot be found in a supermarket. She provides seven basic guidelines for eating (the most important is to never diet) and shares reassuring, practical advice that has over the years helped thousands of women who have attended her highly successful seminars and workshops.Truly a thinking woman s guide to eating--and an anti-diet book-- women everywhere will find insights and revelations on every page. .
