Women, Food and God (2010) takes a close look at the complicated relationship women can have with food .

Author Geneen Roth shows how our relationship to food is emotionally charged and deeply tied to our understanding of who we are, what we’ve been through and the spiritual path we are on. Dieters and binge eaters. Nutritional advisers.

Saw an episode of Oprah where Geneen Roth was talking about her book. I thought the idea of women and their relationship with food was very interesting. I mean what woman wouldn’t want to know why we are so attached to food and can’t lose weight?

Saw an episode of Oprah where Geneen Roth was talking about her book. I mean what woman wouldn’t want to know why we are so attached to food and can’t lose weight? And if Oprah endorses it, you know it must be worth a read. It turned out to be much more of a psychology book than anything else. It really makes the. reader think about food in another light. For me, I had to look at food as in we had a relationship. As a woman, I have an unhealthy attachment to food. It’s hard to admit but it’s true.

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.

I've read an insane amount of books with this same type of theme and some blend into the pile while occasionally I find one that stands out in an amazing way. I can't quite pinpoint exactly what it is about it that makes it stand out, maybe I just read it at the right time of my life or something but it had a significant effect on my mindfulness with not only my relationship with food but a lot of other aspects of my day to day life.

The book is written in such an extremely simple way, which can sometimes trigger part of your brain to tell you you don't need the information, but I pushed that little voice aside whenever it popped up and was rewarded with full body and mind "aha's" and "I knew it!"'s over and over.

If you are the type of person that "doesn't believe in diets" but still haven't found a way to be happy with your body, OR struggle with yo-yo dieting in any way at all THIS IS THE BOOK FOR YOU!

It's a quick read and presents an unarguable truth that your body will LOVE and your mind will most likely refuse due to the simplicity of the facts presented, but I promise it actually works!! Before I had even finished the book and was only taking the small step of acknowledging any feelings in my body before eating, nothing more. And instantly I noticed my eating habits change DRASTICALLY! I did not do one other thing, no meal planning, no restricting in any way, I just mentally acknowledged and put a name to any emotions or sensations present in my body before I ate anything and I didn't try to change anything else. If I was sitting at my desk at work and reached for a candy bar I would sit down and while unwrapping it I would mentally say "I am feeling _________ in _________ part of my body and it's OK to feel ___________ right now." (ie. I am feeling incredible stress in my stomach right now and it's OK to feel this stress right now). But this funny thing started to happen... I would stop eating in the middle of my meals and snacks because I was full without even noticing I had stopped. I CANNOT tell you the last time I didn't finish my plate completely. I always eat everything I'm served. But when I started letting myself feel the feeling I was trying to eat in such a simple and non-resistive way, my appetite suddenly balanced to what my body actually needed.

Becoming mindful in this EXTREMELY simple way will change your life.

I am a physician, who myself suffers with Binge Eating Disorder. I am trained in nutrition and metabolism and have given and received extensive counseling myself. It has been a long journey over the span of many years. I read this book several years back to assimilate all schools of thought. The truth is- this book can cause SERIOUS damage to a person with Binge Eating disorder which is a true addiction, just like alcoholism. Yet Ms. Roth attempts to convince you that your problem is purely lack of self awareness and self control which she claims to fix with her "guidelines". These "guidelines" that Ms. Roth preaches, basically instruct you to do exactly what you are NOT EQUIPPED to do- to instinctively know "what your body wants, how much, and when". Ms Roth-How about helping explain to people what their body NEEDS and instead of telling them to simply eat until they are satisfied, help explain appropriate portions. People with binge eating, by default, do not feel satisfied and by default they DON't pay attention when they are binging. She admits and tells you that you will GAIN WEIGHT following her guidelines, but she promises you will plateau THEN begin to lose weight as you MASTER her plan, which is not possible for an average person living a normal daily existence, not isolated to a bubble of spiritual/meditation where she expects you to basically DRIFT your way to thinness. Yes, thats right-just float your way there. This is serious stuff, Ms. Roth, do not undermine people's confidence by giving them non sensible goals which they can not attain. Take responsbility for what you are saying to people and clarify your credentials! You should be held liable.
Heard Geneen Roth on Oprah's Super Soul Sunday and HAD to buy this audiobook. Absolutely 5 stars; Geneen discusses things related to eating, feelings about food and oneself that are not simply re-treads of everything you've heard about this topic. Fresh perspective on eating healthy, loving oneself, and STOPPING trying to SHAME YOURSELF into making healthy changes that benefit your life and body. Highly recommend for everyBODY & SOUL.
There are no words to describe my gratitude for this woman and the work she has so lovingly, courageously done to mark the path for all of us who struggle with our relationship to food and seek to heal it. I'm puzzled by anything less than a 5 star review. All I can say is that this book is where you go when you want to delve deeper into the WHY of it all... when you are curious or willing to be curious about yourself. Perhaps that level of introspection is not for everyone. But I love it. It's a slow read because you need to - want to - let the words sink in and settle in your psyche.
I have zero doubt that her guidelines work 100 percent of the time. The "doing" of it, that's on each of us embarking on this journey. She has online courses that I listen to as well. Once you pay for it, you have lifetime access. For me, she has been a Godsend.
