i have never found an author who so accurately describes the feelings of a compulsive eater/dieter. i find myself quoting it at least 10 times a day! i never knew that my eating problems could be described with such humor. reading this book even brought to my memory some things i thought i'd forgotten from my past. check out her web site, too! i can't wait to attend one of her workshops!

I thought I was a fat outsider but Geneen shows me that I'm just one of the club. Geneen says she probably dieted a 1000 lbs and gained them again in her lifetime. This isn't a book about diets it's a book about facing the way your life is. I love this book, I'm sure you will too.

This book has started me on a journey that has continued beyond the end of the book. I highly recommend any of Geneen Roth's titles. She shows understanding and a reassurance that you can change.

I purchased this book and read it in one sitting. There were times when I so recognized myself among its pages that my throat would tighten with unshed tears. People, and women in particular, so often have negative images of their bodies, and food obsessions that are not as clearly marked as bulemia or anorexia. This book will teach you how to look differently at your body and begin to love it, no matter WHAT size it is. I plan to carry this book wherever I go, and when I am tempted to mentally flog myself for any number of reasons, I will whip it out for a conference with my "portable best friend." I highly recommend it.

This book standouts in it's smallness, easy portable, similar to the small self help books these days. But packed with infinite wisdom; it focuses on the NOW, you should value yourself NOW, not when you are thinner! Live in the now don't wait til you lose .....lbs. before you treat yourself to that special outfit, appreciate your self, your strengths, your talents, and take care of YOU!!! IT is a book that shows one how to regain SELF-love and respect!!!

This is a great starter read of Roth's work as it's easy to get into with short chapters that are to the point. It's funny and full of examples and excellent ideas. Roth is very good at making her ideas relate and inspire the reader.

I love Geneen Roth she's changed my life and this is a great read to go alongside Women Food & God and her other books.

If, like me, you are fed up of dieting and the cycle of losing/gaining/losing/gaining Geneen Roth is the author for you, she will help you to confront your reasons for eating and gives excellent ways of eating "normally".

I would certainly recommend this book to anyone who has had even the remotest "low" day. Geneen clearly puts forward the issues of dieting and restricting yourself of what you realy want, in an easy to read, compact from.

Very light reading, this book covers many emotional issues and could be releveant to any aspect of your life, whether you struggle with food issues or issues of the heart.

I found it very useful in showing me i am not alone, and there is hope out there! and i have no doubt it will be just as inspirational for you.

Absolutely loved this book. A real life changer. Geneen Roth's message is such common sense although I think it is hard to eat when you're hungry and stop whey you're full but I'm going to try. Her recommendation that we look at "real" women and not the media stereotypes is a great message. Being kind to yourself is also a good idea! Speaking from experience, diets definitely don't work long term. The news today advocates more funding being given to weight loss surgery on the NHS. I think Doctors should give their patients this book to read instead. Cheaper and makes much more sense.

Ideal for dipping into - especially if you have already read some other Geneen Roth gems!
