Publisher's Summary

A holistic health counselor and co-star of award-winning documentary Super Size Me explores women's cravings - for food, sleep, sex, movement, companionship, inspiration - and teaches them to listen to their bodies for a healthier, fuller life.

Transformational health expert Alexandra Jamieson is a woman on a mission. Having overcome her own food addictions and the weight and health problems these habits caused, she learned something life-altering: Qhen we listen to our cravings, they will lead us onto the path of deep healing. Since her own personal breakthrough more than a decade ago, Alexandra has dedicated her life to helping other women learn to listen to the wisdom of their cravings and make food their greatest ally as they step into their lives with authentic passion.

In this powerfully feminine manifesto, Alexandra dares us to face our cravings head-on, to make the self-commitment to no longer hide out behind food, self-loathing, or the limiting expectations of others. With love, deep compassion, and fearless honesty, she calls upon all of us to boldly use food as a tool to cleanse ourselves of the nutritional, emotional, physical, and mental blocks that limit our ability to live full, meaningful, and joyful lives.

In this audiobook she'll show us how:

  • Our cravings are the gatekeepers of our deepest longings and desires
  • Transforming habits sets us free
  • Detoxing unclutters our bodies and minds so we may engage in our lives with more power and authenticity
  • Embracing our sexual selves makes us more powerful
  • Trusting ourselves and surrounding ourselves with a nurturing community is essential for a vital, healthy, hot life

Great book! I recommend every woman to read it!

I was able to relate to many of the stories. This book was very inspirational and motivating. I can't tell you how many times I had to change my unhealthy lunch options just remembering the advise provided! My relationship with food is very different now because I'm in search for real food! Thanks Alexandra

A Great and Informative Read

Alexandra has such a fun writing style and a lovely butterscotch voice that I could listen to all day. The book is full of fantastic nutritional and functional information, and it's delivered in such a way that I can't wait for the next enlightening chapter. I feel empowered after listening to Ms. Jamieson and feel that I can conquer any doubts I have around how I eat, move, think, feel, and process.

A lot of good advice here...

...But not necessarily answers. The strength of this book is that it makes you think differently about your relationship with food in general. If you want specific instructions on what to eat and what to do differently, you have to join one of the author's eating programs, for instance her "Rapid Refresh and Reboot" program—which currently costs $97. Still, I didn't feel like the book was just a "hard sell" for her other services. Her overall message is that we should seek balance in our lives and be happy—what could be bad about that? The author is extremely open about her own life and the lives of people she has helped, and ultimately the book is truly uplifting. For a companion book, I would recommend "Women, Food, and God" by Geneen Roth.

Powerful and digestible

I really enjoyed this audio book. Alex's reading is more like a conversation. Her personal stories and client stories allow the information to be easily understood and put into practice. Even complex information about hormones and digestion and other body functions make sense and reminded me that my body is something powerful and amazing and a little self care goes a long way. I highly recommend this book for anyone who has ever thought that they could use with a little self care.

wait, that's it?

Please don't get me wrong, I'm looking into all the bonuses and reading other books Mentone, but I felt like sure was just getting to the meat of what I needed when she ended the book. ummm, so what now?

Everyone should read this

I think this is a wonderfully picturesque, poetic and realistic view of the lives of nearly all women. It treats our desires and our relationships with food in an empowering way. Well done.
