From the internationally acclaimed author of Feeding the Hungry Heart, Breaking Free From Compulsive Eating, and Why Weight? comes a wholly original look at the profound connections between the way we eat and the way we love.

When Food Is Love examines the motivations behind bingeing and obsessive dieting, and explains how such compulsive behavior sabotages intimate relationships. With compassion and penetrating wisdom, Geneen Roth reveals how to break destructive emotional patterns and learn to satisfy all the hungers—physical and emotional—that make us human.

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristen | 1/29/2014

    " This book was a bit of a rollercoaster for me. It's probably the only good thing that came out of a terrible counseling session I had recently...the counselor recommended it to me. What was strange was that I could totally identify with the author one minute and then be thinking she was crazy the next. Ultimately, I learned a bit about compulsive eating and gained some insight into myself. I plan to read a couple other books by this author that she referred to in this one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shannon | 1/19/2014

    " What an amazing book! What an incredible journey! I wish I had this book 26 years ago. This is a must read for anyone who suffers from ED (eating disorders), especially binging or compulsive over-eating. This book definitely gave me one of those light bulb moments and I know that I will continue to use this book as a resource and comfort in my life. "

    " I liked the book gave me the insight to know that weight n food are only symptoms. What's the real reason but the book didn't seem organized and the voice was kind of depressing too mono tone. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michelle | 4/8/2012

    " Geneen Roth is the clearest voice on the relationship between compulsive overeaters and emotional well being. Her thoughts on the overlapping of food and love in the lives of overeaters is very thought provoking. I felt like she spoke so clearly for me and many other women. I highly recommend it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Corinne | 9/3/2011

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vivian | 7/5/2011

    " I read this book many years ago, and it was one of many that finally showed me that there was a way out of the trap of eating for emotional reasons. Some extra fluff, but the crux of the book is solid. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lana | 2/8/2011

    " This is a good book for feeling less alone in your relationship with food. It's a good story. The thing it doesn't have is a "how to" description about actually doing something about it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 1/21/2011

    " I will write a longer review later but Oprah was right (never thought I'd say that) when she called this book "life changing." It's deep stuff. I can't wait to read her other books now! "
