Overview

Why do we eat too much? Because we are hungry-but not for more food. On 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, visualizations, and Roth's powerful "Four Principles for Breaking Free" eating guidelines. Includes study booklet.

The author shares her experience as a compulsive eater and self-starver and how she broke free from this destructive cycle to go on to help other women do the same.
