Publisher's Summary

From the internationally acclaimed author of Feeding the Hungry Heart, Breaking Free From Compulsive Eating, and Why Weight? comes a wholly original look at the profound connections between the way we eat and the way we love.

When Food Is Love examines the motivations behind bingeing and obsessive dieting, and explains how such compulsive behavior sabotages intimate relationships. With compassion and penetrating wisdom, Geneen Roth reveals how to break destructive emotional patterns and learn to satisfy all the hungers, physical and emotional - that make us human.

    Not the kind of audio book that you listen to just once. This book is full of profound insights and wisdom. Absolutely amazing. Highly recommend.

    "Love it!"

    I have been trying to better understand why my obsession with food and my weight disappeared when I worked through deep issues that appeared on the surface, not related to food!
    This has helped me understand it much better.
    It's also helped me become aware of the reasons I attract certain relationships and how I can work through past hurts to enjoy intimacy.
    Thank you geneen!!!

    "Recommended to those struggling with weight loss"

    Although the authour, Geneen Roth, has a rather annoying voice (somewhat whining and babyish), the message in her books is excellent. As someone who has struggled with weight issues for a very long time, her take on it is very different from most, but made complete sense to me. I would recommend listening to this and her other books. You get used to her voice after a while and what remains is a way to explore the deeper issues associated with food.

    "Love the angle"

    This was such a refreshing angle on binge eating people need to realize it not because we are fat and lazy...we have issues and they can't be ignored they need to be dealt with

    Story
    "Truly priceless insight, better with every page."

    Possibly the best book I've ever seen on this topic. Written with piercing honesty, it is instructive, healing, and truly valuable. Fifteen years of therapy presented in its essence through one book.

    "Wrong title"

    With all due respect this book needs a change of title urgently. It has nothing to do with food: it has to do with obesity. Food can unleash emotions that once presented as love are a good catch... but it's a personal journey into how to deal with emotions that end up in a very different path.
