Millions of us are locked into an unwinnable weight game, as our self-worth is shredded with every diet failure. Combine the utter inefficacy of dieting with the lack of spiritual nourishment and we have generations of mad, ravenous self-loathing women. So says Geneen Roth, in her life-changing new book, Women, Food and God. Since her 1991 bestseller, When Food Is Love, was published, Roth has taken the sum total of her experience and combined it with spirituality and psychology to explain women's true hunger. Roth's approach to eating is that it is the same as any addiction - an activity to avoid feeling emotions. From the first page, readers will be struck by the author's intelligence, humour and sensitivity, as she traces the path of overeating from its subtle beginnings through to its logical end. Whether the drug is booze or brownies, the problem is the same: opting out of life. She powerfully urges readers to pay attention to what they truly need - which cannot be found in a supermarket. She provides seven basic guidelines for eating (the most important is to never diet) and shares reassuring, practical advice that has helped thousands of women who have attended her highly successful seminars. Truly a thinking woman's guide to eating - and an anti-diet book - women everywhere will find insights and revelations on every page.

Stop thinking about nutrition and start thinking about your child’s eating habits instead. You already know how to give your kids healthy food. But the hard part is getting them to eat it. After years of research and working with parents, Dina Rose, discovered a powerful truth: When parents focus solely on nutrition, their kids—surprisingly—eat poorly. But when families shift their emphasis to behaviors – the skills and habits kids are taught—they learn to eat right. Every child can learn to eat well—but only if you show them how to do it. Dr. Rose describes the three habits—proportion, variety, and moderation—all kids need to learn, and gives you clever, practical ways to teach these food skills. All children can learn: • How to confidently explore strange, new foods • How to know when they’re hungry and when they’re full • What to do when they say they’re “starving”—and about to attend a birthday party • How to branch out from easy-to-like prepackaged kid fare to more mature tastes and textures: savory, tangy, runny, crunchy. • How to engage in open and honest talk about food without yelling “I don’t like it!” With It's Not About the Broccoli, you can teach your children how to eat, and give them the skills they need for a lifetime of health and vitality.

It has become popular to blame the American obesity epidemic and many other health-related problems on processed food. Many of these criticisms are valid for some processed-food items, but many statements are overgeneralizations that unfairly target a wide range products that contribute to our health and well-being. In addition, many of the proposed dangers allegedly posed by eating processed food are exaggerations based on highly selective views of experimental studies. We crave simple answers to our questions about food, but the science behind the proclamations of food pundits is not nearly as clear as they would have you believe. This book presents a more nuanced view of the benefits and limitations of food processing and exposes some of the tricks both Big Food and its critics use to manipulate us to adopt their point of view. Food is a source of enjoyment, a part of our cultural heritage, a vital ingredient in maintaining health, and an expression of personal choice. We need to make those choices based on credible information and not be beguiled by the sophisticated marketing tools of Big Food nor the ideological appeals and gut feelings of self-appointed food gurus who have little or no background in nutrition.

'A must-read ... satisfying, rich ... loaded with flavour' Sunday Telegraph This book is a celebration of food. By food, Michael Pollan means real, proper, simple food - not the kind that comes in a packet, or has lists of unpronounceable ingredients, or that makes nutritional claims about how healthy it is. More like the kind of food your great-grandmother would recognize. In Defence of Food is a simple invitation to junk the science, ditch the diet and instead rediscover the joys of eating well. By following a few pieces of advice (Eat at a table - a desk doesn't count. Don't buy food where you'd buy your petrol!), you will enrich your life and your palate, and enlarge your sense of what it means to be healthy and happy. It's time to fall in love with food again. For the past twenty years, Michael Pollan has been writing about the places where the human and natural worlds intersect: food, agriculture, gardens, drugs, and architecture. His most recent book, about the ethics and ecology of eating, is The Omnivore's Dilemma, named one of the ten best books of 2006 by the New York Times and the Washington Post. He is also the author of The Botany of Desire, A Place of My Own and Second Nature.

In America today we face a paradox: we've never had more food at our disposal, but we've also never had worse nutrition habits. The problem lies in the way that food is grown, processed, and marketed. The truth is that our food is literally making us sick. Pat Smith started out on a personal journey and ended up as a major public advocate for better food, better nutrition, and better eating. When it comes to diet and nutrition, her message is simple: It's All About The Food. Through a combination of in-depth research, folksy wisdom, and practical advice, she makes navigating the contemporary food scene utterly workable for the average individual or family. This book is more than just a means to better nutrition. It could actually save your life. In It's All About The Food, Pat will invite you to undergo a true paradigm shift-embracing a new perspective on the importance of diet and health. As she points out, a diet should not be seen as a temporary weight loss regimen. Instead, a diet is simply the way we should be eating all the time. This doesn't mean we have to stop eating good food. Just the opposite. It actually means we can start eating better food. And that has to start first with education, so that it can lead to the right kinds of choices and the right kinds of daily habits.

The plight of overweight and obese Americans has fostered a national debate that has poured over into television talk shows such as Oprah and the Nightly News. Oprah Winfrey devoted an entire show to the N.Y. Times Bestseller, Women, Food and God, asking viewers to email their comments to her web page. Our reactions to the limited theories advanced on that show are contained in the book. American obesity rates are the highest in the world. Sixty-eight percent of adults are categorized as overweight. One-third of them are diagnosed as clinically obese. There are nearly 7 million overweight and obese children in the U.S. today. Childhood obesity statistics show that obese children have a 70% chance of becoming obese adults. The percentage increases to 80% if either one or both parents is obese as well. Americans did not get fat overnight nor did some mosquito spread a deadly virus that causes obesity. Eating until becoming obese is now the leader in American addictions surpassing cigarettes and alcohol. There are tangible reasons why Americans are gaining weight, becoming obese or cannot lose it. The so-called "healthy foods" you're eating are making you fat and ill. The research cited in the Reference section proves that weight gain and obesity are the result of an addiction to many chemical food ingredients, the dangers of genetically modified fruits and vegetables and the damage to the human body caused by foods containing synthetic growth hormones, carcinogens and antibiotics found in factory farmed meats and dairy. We ask and answer the questions: Are you eating a lot of salads but still gaining weight? Juicing and still gaining weight? Drinking so-called health food shakes to lose weight without success? Changing your diet so often you feel like a yo-yo? Can't stop eating? Finding working out impossible because you are getting too overweight to walk, jog or exercise for very long? Are you considering a drastic means to lose weight such as liposuction, gastric bypass or lap-band surgeries? PLEASE STOP NOW. It's Not Your Fault! The information in this book led to one author losing more than 80 pounds and the other losing 20. And they are still losing weight. This is a new approach to losing weight. The authors show you how to change your diet and lose weight without giving up your favorite type of foods. The only sacrifice is switching brands containing dangerous chemical additives for a healthier version. We teach you how to do it. It's easier than you think. The book describes the causes of food cravings, overeating, addiction and discuss food allergies, delayed food intolerance and the dangerous addictive chemicals used by food manufacturers that cause the compulsive/obsessive eating that leads to obesity. We offer a 90-day challenge and easy 12-step dieting rules that can start readers on their way to losing weight. Diabetes, heart disease and other illnesses are complications caused by weight gain. This book enlightens and empowers people to lose weight and improve their health. We also discuss how certain chemical food addictions in children originate with the eating habits of pregnant mothers that start in vitro. We offer important information to help expectant mothers stop the cycle of addiction. "I'm having great fun already with the book. Fascinating read. And extremely informative. I'm appalled at the extent of my ignorance!" Barbara Paskin, BBC

“What are my qualifications to write this book? None really. So why should you read it? Here's why: I'm a little fat. If a thin guy were to write about a love of food and eating I'd highly recommend that you do not read his book.” Bacon. McDonalds. Cinnabon. Hot Pockets. Kale. Stand-up comedian and author Jim Gaffigan has made his career rhapsodizing over the most treasured dishes of the American diet (“choking on bacon is like getting murdered by your lover”) and decrying the worst offenders (“kale is the early morning of foods”). Fans flocked to his New York Times bestselling bookDad is Fat to hear him riff on fatherhood but now, in his second book, he will give them what they really crave—hundreds of pages of his thoughts on all things culinary(ish). Insights such as: why he believes coconut water was invented to get people to stop drinking coconut water, why pretzel bread is #3 on his most important inventions of humankind (behind the wheel and the computer), and the answer to the age-old question “which animal is more delicious: the pig, the cow, or the bacon cheeseburger?”
