Embraced by Oprah, the #1 New York Times bestselling guide that Anne Lamott called "a hugely important work," explains the connection between eating and emotion from Geneen Roth, noted authority on mindful eating--now available at a great value.

If you suffer with 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."

First published in 2011 and soaring to popularity after TV and radio features with Oprah, Women Food and God feels just as relevant and transcendent as ever. A knock-your-socks-off ride to a deeply fulfilling relationship with food, your body, and almost everything else, Women Food and God is "a life-changer, one that will free untold women from the tyranny of fear and hopelessness around their bodies," (Anne Lamott) and most simply, a guide for life.
