"How have so many of us gotten epically messed up about food?"
In Goddesses Eat (part of The Goddess Guides to Being A Woman self-help series), International Bestselling Author Ava Miles dives into the morass of issues women have about eating and food.
Food is the fuel to our very goddess woman bodies, but many of us starve ourselves, diet constantly, binge, or subsist only on salads. We are so caught up in shame around our body image and the events in our lives, we've turned food into a weapon we use to hurt our very nature.
"What the heck is going on?" Ava asks. It's time to see food as nourishment and eat like a goddess woman again. Ava encourages all women to put on their big brave and look at their eating habits and how that reflects their true feelings. "The way you treat yourself with food is an expression of your relationship with yourself and your life." Are you ready to create a new partnership with food, goddess-style?
This guide is for:
• Women who have issues with food.
• Women who obsess about their weight and what they eat.
• Women who have or have had an eating disorder.
• Women who are tired of starving themselves, dieting, binging, etc.
• Women who don't know how to change the status quo.
• Women who don't like to eat.
• Women who never feel happy about food.
• Women who feel deep shame from eating.
Throw off all the soul-sucking stories about food and learn to feast like a goddess woman.
Wait... The following are some "important" questions readers have had about this series.
What's the full scoop on this series?
Ava: It's everything I wish someone would have told me about being a happy, empowered woman on my own terms. I spent years struggling, trying to figure all this stuff out. I tackle the issues that trip women up: sex, relationships and family, money and personal success, body image, eating, self-expression, personal power, happiness, and fear. The Goddess Guides to Being a Woman encourage women of all ages to unleash their true goddess nature.
"Unleash my goddess nature?" Isn't that a little scary?
Ava: Aren't you tired of being told what a woman should act like, think like, look like? Aren't you tired of feeling like you're always falling short and chasing your tail? To quote myself: "It's time to live a happy and abundant life on our own terms, not anyone else's." These guides help each woman decide for herself what that goddess-woman life looks like and tap into her happy, power-packed goddess nature.
Am I really going to transform into a goddess if I read these guides?
Ava: That's up to you, Young Skywalker. But I sense the force is strong with you.
Is this one of those self-important, serious motivational books?
Ava: What do you think? I just made a Star Wars reference. Wonder Woman probably would have been more appropriate, right?
How long are the books? I mean, I don't have all day.
Ava: These are a short, life-changing books designed for busy women.
Is there an order to the series?
Ava: Nope. You decide which topics appeal to you and what order to read in.
Can men read these guides too?
Ava: Sure. Some of the information is geared towards women, but there's a lot in the guides for everyone walking around on two legs, men included. I mean, don't they want to be happy and empowered too?
What about some of the (ahem) words you use in the titles? Cock? Motherf*cker?
Ava: What can I say? The titles kinda wrote themselves, but they make the point about goddess women being free from shame when it comes to self-expression. Use them, don't use them--it's your choice.
Are these like Ava's other bestselling series?
Ava: No, these are non-fiction, but some of the guides contain short fictional stories to make key points.
Wait...Ava writes fiction too?
Ava: Yes, and those stories are chock full of empowering messages for women (and men) too along with a lot of laughs.
Who would you say you're most like? I've never heard of you.
Ava: Being a goddess woman, I'd like to say I'm just me, but how about a cross between Erma Bombeck and Deepak Chopra? Just kidding. You'll have to decide.
Where do I find out more about all this goddess stuff?
Ava: You can check out Goddess Central at www.avamiles.com
