Overview

"Women who read this book will be inspired to throw away their diets and scales and pick up on the nurturing, caring voice presented in these pages." --Jane R. Hirschmann and Carol H. Munter, authors of Overcoming Overeating.

Carol Emery Normandi and Laurelee Roark founded the nonprofit organization Beyond Hunger, Inc. because they had each struggled for years with eating disorders--and discovered that most of the programs available couldn't provide true, permanent recovery. To achieve that, they found they had to address the physical, emotional, and spiritual wounds that lay at the core of their unhealthy eating behavior--to go beyond the hunger of their physical bodies and meet the hunger that resided in their very souls. The techniques used in the Beyond Hunger workshops have helped many women change their minds about food and weight--and change their lives in the process. This compassionate, supportive book shows how it can be done--and offers to help women put an end to the rollercoaster of dieting and bingeing once and for all.

* Includes a foreword by the authors of the bestseller Overcoming Overeating

* "Normandi and Roark are like patient coaches detaching women from their obsessions with food, deprogramming societal and family messages about acceptable weight, offering tools and excercises to transform destructive behaviors into opportunities for self-reflection."--San Jose Mercury News

"It's Not About Food is an important part of the growing movement to return women's bodies to their rightful owners." --Naomi Wolf, author of The Beauty Myth
