Embraced by Oprah, the #1 New York Times bestselling guide that explains the connection between eating and emotion from Geneen Roth--noted authority on mindful eating.

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

After three decades of studying, teaching, and writing about our compulsions with food, bestselling author Geneen Roth adds a powerful 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.

A timeless and seminal work, Women Food and God shows how going beyond the food and the feelings takes you deeper into realms of spirit and soul--to the bright center of your own life.

Title is the best thing this book has going for it - disappointed in content.

Says a lot about women and food, not much about God, and nothing we haven't heard before.

I really liked this book! The truth hurts but more importantly helps you grow. You need to be ready to make changes in your life so be in the right frame of mind when you pick it up.

Bizarre self help book about the relationships with food and God? Kind of rude at times. I stupidly trusted Oprah. She usually picks good books. I will stick with her fiction selections from now on.

Found several of her comments offensive, really wish she had not been so judgemental at times. The ideas are sound but this is mostly just a repeat of her past books.
