Publisher's Summary

Address the Causes of Compulsive Eating, and Nurture a Love Affair with Yourself

Why do we eat too much? Because we are hungry - but not for more food. In Feeding the Hungry Heart, you will learn how a deep internal hunger for self-respect and fulfillment often translates into compulsive eating. Geneen Roth - a "no more diets" pioneer for more than 15 years - has helped thousands of women look at the real truth about the unconscious motivations that can lead to distorted eating patterns. Diets fail to work, Roth says, because they treat the symptoms of overeating, not the real problems. By looking at childhood programming and learning to pay attention to what your body really needs, you can restore balance in your life and heal at the deepest level.

Feeding the Hungry Heart has helped a generation of women live diet-free by encouraging them to replace overeating with self-awareness and compassion. This live recording documents many exercises and visualizations and Roth's powerful "Four Principles for Breaking Free" eating guidelines.

Enjoyed this book

Would you listen to Feeding the Hungry Heart again? Why?

Yes I would listen to this book again. I really enjoyed the author - I appreciated her awareness and openness as she talked about everything, especially the interaction with the people in her workshop.

What did you like best about this story?

The book that I listened to was a recording of a workshop that she did - I downloaded that by mistake, but actually enjoyed the interactive aspect of the workshop.

What about Geneen Roth’s performance did you like?

She was fantastic in every sense - engaging, hilarious, honest, real.

What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

Exercise is not something I have to do, it's a reward and a gift that I want to do to be good to myself, to make my life easier and the best it can be throughout my life

Any additional comments?

This is worth listening to!

Great book!

For almost all of us, no diet alone will solve our food issues. Ms Roth heartwarmingly opens our eyes to what the real issue is with our battle with food. It's as pertinent today as it was then -- if not even more so.

I'm in awe of her accomplishments.

Where does Feeding the Hungry Heart rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It's not too high up in the list of non-fiction as it was too short; it left me wanting.

What insight do you think you’ll apply from Feeding the Hungry Heart?

Not forbidding any foods to myself ever again.

Any additional comments?

The visualization exercises really worked for me.
