Women Food and God: An Unexpected Path to Almost Everything

Unabridged Audiobook

Summary:

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.

    I'm so glad the author narrated her own book! This book will become one of my go-to's. Impossible to grasp in one sitting, but with each listen something inside changes! A snippet of newly and formerly unknown peace surfaces... Even if for only a short time... Change and hope is in the air!
