When Food Is Love examines the motivations behind bingeing and obsessive dieting, and explains how such compulsive behavior sabotages intimate relationships. With compassion and penetrating wisdom, Geneen Roth reveals how to break destructive emotional patterns and learn to satisfy all the hungers, physical and emotional - that make us human.

It was very hard for me to listen to this and gain any knowledge. The author herself narrates this and her voice is slow and drawn out. I was frequently annoyed by her tone and rhythm and it completely pulled me away from the actual message of this audio book. I've read other books of hers and had no problems following them. there's a lot of good stuff here if you can get past the voice.
MANY REPORTED HER VOICE AS BEING AGGRAVIATING I FOUND IT CALMING AND THE MORE I LISTEN TO HER I FELT THE NEED TO TREAT MYSELF BETTER. MY EATING HABITS ALMOST CHANGED ON THEIR OWN AS I FELT BETTER ABOUT ME. I LOST 5 LBS ALMOST EFFORTLESSLY BUT I HAVE KEPT IT OFF THE SAME WAY.
"Recommended to those struggling with weight loss"
Although the authour, Geneen Roth, has a rather annoying voice (somewhat whining and babyish), the message in her books is excellent. As someone who has struggled with weight issues for a very long time, her take on it is very different from most, but made complete sense to me. I would recommend listening to this and her other books. You get used to her voice after a while and what remains is a way to explore the deeper issues associated with food.
This book was recommended to be by a friend, and I am so glad I listened. The author points out feelings and ways of thinking which influence my very being. I will listen to this again and take notes next time.
If you struggle with weight, have a listen!
"Love the angle"
This was such a refreshing angle on binge eating people need to realize it not because we are fat and lazy...we have issues and they can't be ignored they need to be dealt with
"Truly priceless insight, better with every page."
Possibly the best book I've ever seen on this topic. Written with piercing honesty, it is instructive, healing, and truly valuable. Fifteen years of therapy presented in its essence through one book.
"You have helped me more than I can express"
I am 42. Finally ... finally I have shifted from rough seas to land. I am not alone and so grateful. Thank you. X
Enlightening, encouraging, motivating
Wow! Someone who knows what I'm talking about!
What's REALLY going on...
With all due respect this book needs a change of title urgently. It has nothing to do with food: it has to do with obesity. Food can unleash emotions that once presented as love are a good catch... but it's a personal journey into how to deal with emotions that end up in a very different path.
