Some of Geneen's writing I have found confusing and I was wondering did she endorse over eating but she explains this topic in the early part of this book very well and I now understand that she has never really advocated overeating as a way of ending compulsive eating.When you're trying out different foods at the beginning of recovery you're meant to eat mindfully and eat slowly and sitting down. I have also bought one of her other books called 'why weight? how to end compulsive eating'. I have spent twenty years trying to normalise my relationship with food and I feel excited by reading her books as there is so much to be learnt in them.
I'm sure people will find something in this, but for me - I already know where God is in my life, so it didn't really hold the breakthroughs or revolutions of some of her previous works. Also, there's a bit of superiority creeping into the style of writing. She's a guru - great. but she's not God Almighty (or whoever your chosen Being/Empty Space is!) It's getting three stars because at least she's still getting the message out there about dieting and how there is another way - just remember Ms Roth's way is not the One True Way either :) Take what's helpful and leave the rest.
The reality is I'm now not overweight in fact I work in the health and fitness industry - this book was recommended to me by a peer - and I'm now working on my mindset about food rather than the food itself.
For you to get the most out of this book you must be willing to consider other options, one that is not only based on calories in/out and shaming yourself into a better body. If you can do that, then this book will be a great tool.
The book is sprinkled with Geneen's humour as well as down to earth guidance for how to use the power of your mind to change your outlook and your life. Forget dieting, this is the way to overcome emotional eating and negativity.
