Women Food and God
An Unexpected Path to Almost Everything
"Geneen Roth has written an extraordinary book—at once beautiful, moving, funny and searing. Most important, she gives us a practical way to use our bodies—along with some of the most difficult parts of our emotional lives—as gracious and transformative portals to our soul."
— Rick Foster, co-author of Happiness & Health and How We Choose to Be Happy
"This is a hugely important work, a life-changer, one that will free untold women from the tyranny of fear and hopelessness around their bodies. Beautifully written, a joy to read, rich in both revelation and great humor."
— Anne Lamott, author of Grace (Eventually): Thoughts on Faith
"Geneen Roth does it again! Women Food and God is absolutely mesmerizing. And loaded with insights which can change your life."
— Christiane Northrup, MD, ob/gyn physician and author of Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom and The Wisdom of Menopause
"Women Food and God is daring, dazzling, funny, comforting, wise and profoundly spiritual. It maps the journey from the darkness of obsession to the pure sense of being in prose so insightful and astonishing it left me breathless. Geneen Roth is an international treasure, and her new book is a gift to us all."
— Gay Hendricks, Ph.D. author of Five Wishes and Conscious Loving

The way you eat is inseparable from your core beliefs about being alive. No matter how sophisticated or wise or enlightened you believe you are, how you eat tells all. The world is on your plate. When you begin to understand what prompts you to use food as a way to numb or distract yourself, the process takes you deeper into realms of spirit and to the bright center of your own life. Rather than getting rid of or instantly changing your conflicted relationship with food, Women Food and God is about welcoming what is already here, and contacting the part of yourself that is already whole—divinity itself.
