This boook is about breaking free from compulsive eating and shows how dieting and compulsive eating often become a substitute for intimacy.

A life changing book. I was moved and helped by it. Anyone with abuse issues and/or food addiction would benefit from this wonderful warm book.

This is the fourth book ( Feeding the Hungry Heart, etc.) generated by the seminars Roth conducts at her Berkeley, Calif., home for people who believe that if they were thin, they would be happy. But the author makes clear that losing weight doesn't automatically gain one success, respect and love. Roth's personal story and those of her clients as related here exemplify the need to discover why the overweight are addicted to food. Citing her own deprived childhood, the author demonstrates that gluttons seek the reliable comforts of eating instead of closeness with humans who might become abusive (like her mother) or vanish (like her father).

If you would like to read about THE AUTHOR'S relationship between eating and intimacy, then you will enjoy this book. If you intend to read this to acquire any understanding of eating and intimacy, skip it! This writing is as self-centered as they get.

This book was more helpful than most in reminding me that I can actually CHOOSE what I eat!

Great book for compulsive eaters. I'm still missing a little of the connection between love and food because I didn't experience a bad or unlovable childhood but so many uh ha moments that you just want to keep with you and repeat to yourself before you mindlsly eat.

This book can be one of those life changing books if you stick with what she says and live it every day.

I really like this author's style of writing. I thought I might identify more with the concept of substituting food for love, but am happy to say I have progressed past that painful challenge. The words were familiar but more like a distant memory of the way things used to be. Very healing.
