    For Anyone Who Ever Hated Dieting

    You will never look at food the same way after this book. That cookie is no longer comforting and I don't stare at the bottom of a thing of ice cream and think oh, no. This book will change the way that you eat, not just help you lose weight.

    Breaking Free from Emotional Eating

    I have enjoyed the book Breaking Free from Emotional Eating. I truly identify with emotional eating. I have gotton good ideas to change my eating pattern. The books isn't talking about a diet it is talking about a new way to eat. I would highly recommend it.

    Amazing

    This is one of the BEST books I've read on emotional eating/dieting. I'm not sure why the average rating is 3 stars on here, but don't let that keep you from reading it! You will love it! I will never diet again...

    Highly recommend

    I have read Geneen's: Women, Food and God and decided I would like to read this book as well. I am finding it most helpful, especially the questions she poses when I want to go for the food when I am really not hungry.

    This is the 3rd book I've read from Geneen Roth and it wasn't as

    This is the 3rd book I've read from Geneen Roth and it wasn't as good as the others. It's still helpful and insightful but I always find myself saying, "yeah, but HOW do I that?" in her books. I would recommend When You Eat at the Fridge Pull up a Chair over this one.
