Publisher's Summary

A no-holds-barred account of folk legend Judy Collins's harrowing struggle with compulsive overeating and of the journey that led her to a solution.

Since childhood Judy Collins has had a tumultuous, fraught relationship with food. Her issues with overeating nearly claimed her career and her life. For decades she thought she simply lacked self-discipline. She tried nearly every diet plan that exists, often turning to alcohol to dull the pain of yet another failed attempt to control her seemingly insatiable cravings.

Today, Judy knows she suffers from an addiction to sugar and grains, flour and wheat. She adheres to a strict diet of unprocessed foods consumed in carefully measured portions. This solution has allowed her to maintain a healthy weight for years, to enjoy the glow of good health, and to attain peace of mind.

Alternating between chapters on her life and those of the many diet gurus she has encountered along the way (Atkins, Jean Nidetch of Weight Watchers, Andrew Weil, to name a few), Cravings is the culmination of Judy's genuine desire to share what she's learned - so that no one else has navigate her heart-rending path to recovery.

    "Dissapointed"
    What disappointed you about Cravings?

    I was expecting a heartfelt novel about the author's battle with Food Addiction, in which I am also in recovery from. Instead the book was filled with an uninteresting history of different food gurus, teachers, and celebrities with splices of her own story throughout.


    What could Judy Collins have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Stick to her own autobiography and keep the focus on food, health, and her personal struggles and triumphs.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Her voice was a bit annoying and condescending.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The author seemed genuine and positive.
