The bestselling author of "When Food Is Love" helps overeaters find the underlying reasons for using food as an emotional buffer. Roth also provides seven basic guidelines for eating and other therapeutic self-help tools.
"This is a hugely important work, a life-changer, one that will free untold women from the tyranny of fear and hopelessness around their bodied. Beautifully written, a joy to read, rich in both revelation and great humor"."
--"Anne Lamott, author of Grace (Eventually): Thoughts on Faith
This book is changing my life. I first read it a year ago when it was on Oprah. However at that time I was not ready to give up dieting, because I was getting married and was too afraid of what would happened. Still it helped me then, I read it slowly and even though I was still dieting, it helped me with the emotional aspect of dieting.
Then I went through bunch of huge events, and a year later I found myself 15 pounds heavier and on my road to depression. I decided to read this book again to see if it could help me with my struggle with weight as it had before.
Before I say whether it has or hasn't, because truthfully it has only been a few weeks and I stopped weighing myself, so I really don't know where I am at, I want to say that it has completely changed my outlook. I got the audio version, and listen to it daily. I have learned to look deep into my feelings about food, and been having all sorts of epiphanies. I love myself more, I respect myself more. I am less self-conscious, have stopped a lot of my anti-social behavior. I started meditating, and learning to be present and the joy that this journey has brought into my everyday life is startling. I have rediscovered all the things I love about myself and I am happy.
Now I realize this sounds like an infomercial testimonial, and I have also brought spirituality and divinity in my life as well, so that is part of it. I am also waiting for the other shoe to drop, because it usually does is for me. However, as of right now, which is all I really have, this book has been a revelation.
I recommend reading it slowly and reading it often, each time you will find that a different, a chapter, excerpt or sentence, that will speak to where you are now. It took a while for all the bits of wisdom to penetrate into my psyche, hence my regimen of reading it daily, and as Roth says, compulsive eating dies a slow death, bite by bite.
