If you, like me; have declined social invitation because you did not want to eat, refused to go out with friends because you 'felt fat', or lain awake at night with insomnia as you are worried because tomorrow is 'weigh day' - then this book is for you.
Geneen understands EXACTLY what we have been going through and explains in an empathetic and compassionate fashion how you can stop judging yourself and get off the diet bandwagon. Throw all your diet books and scales away, feed your 'diet' food to your dog and start nurturing your body and understanding when you are hungry, what your body wants you to consume and when you have had enough. Am I 'cured'? It's an ongoing process, but one that at least I have taken the first few steps toward.
Geneen Roth will give you the tools to lead yourself down the road to freedom. And all you have to do is read her book!
