I have loved Marianne since she wrote her first book and uttered her first spiritual word.......I love everything she has written, but not so much this book.....while I love her style of reading, it's a big draw for me to her audio books, I found this book quite boring, both for content---seemed to be more for people who need to loose a LOT of weight and who have no clue about anything to do with weight loss---and for her reading style of this material---I just didn't like the reading of this book.......sorry Marianne, I still love you, but looking for more of your real spirituality books.....
This book is incredible. It shows you that being overweight is as much a result of your thinking as your physical actions. It treats yo-yo dieting and binge eating as symptoms of a deep disconnection from our beautiful, true selves. This book is loving and empowering and kind. Anyone who struggles with their weight should buy it. It will radically change your perspective of your body and finally show you how to shed the unwanted weight.
Yes. Easy to learn and immediately applicable. Makes a difference.
A Return to Love. It works with same principles
Her delivery and voice are impeccable.
That our thoughts coupled with unexpressed/unresolved emotions is what stores fat in our bodies.
I prefer audio because i tend to fall asleep alot while reading but with the audio I can plug it in while i am working out and it is fabulous.
I like Mariannes way of relating to people, she really speaks to us not AT us.
This approach to weight loss seems narrow sighted and oversimplified. It also has significant religious overtones... not that that is bad, I just think the reader should be fore-warned about the approach the author takes. As a physician I am sure some of my patients would find the book useful, but many have issues far beyond the narrow scope taken by the author.
I should have realized, having heard a Marianne Williamson speech previously, that this would have strongly religious overtones. If you are comfortable with a more :"born again" type theology, this is for you. It was simply too preachy. "Women, Food and God" was much less preachy and seemed more substantial.
This was such a waste of my credit. I felt mislead by the title and synopsis. I felt like I was back at catholic school being told to just pray about it. Simply misleading and exclusive towards people of non-Christian backgrounds.
I'm an atheist so I was very disappointed to discover that this is a very spiritual book relying heavily on faith to help you succeed. Pooh.
