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.

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Laura Hayes cruz | 2/4/2014

    " Mmmmm...a lot of stuff I've heard before. Yes, I know I don't always eat because I'm truly hungry. Who does? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Katieosborn | 1/17/2014

    " I really enjoyed this book, and I'm not really a fan of self-help books. This book really opened my eyes to some of the compulsions and obsessions that people (particularly women) have with food. I would recommend this book to any women. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Laura Lee | 1/15/2014

    " This was the first time someone, or anything, understood my obsessions and compulsions with food. While some of the text did make me squirm, the author, for me, touched a place that no therapist has ever been able to. I keep this book on my kindle and read a few passages each day. For the past several weeks my thought patterns about food have shifted and I remain hopeful. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Gina | 1/8/2014

    " This book was amazing. I finished it in two days, with lots of journaling and thinking and tears shed in between. Roth is able to put into words things I have known about myself, but was never quite able to articulate. She was a yo-yo dieter for her whole life, and learned how to embrace food and her body in a way that has allowed her to help hundreds of women to do the same thing. I highly recommend this book for anyone with food and/or body image issues. "
