#1 New York Times bestselling author of Women Food and God “A life-changing book.”—Oprah In this moving and intimate book, Geneen Roth, bestselling author of Feeding the Hungry Heart and Breaking Free from Compulsive Eating, shows how dieting and emotional eating often become a substitute for intimacy. Drawing on her own painful personal experiences, as well as the candid stories of those she has helped in her seminars, Roth examines the crucial issues that surround emotional eating: need for control, dependency on melodrama, desire for what is forbidden, and the belief that one wrong move can mean catastrophe. She shows why many people overeat in an attempt to satisfy their emotional hunger, and why weight loss frequently just uncovers a new set of problems. But her welcome message is that change is possible. This book will help readers break destructive, self-perpetuating patterns and learn to satisfy all the hungers—physical and emotional—that make us human.

Modern advertising has changed dramatically since the early twentieth century, but when it comes to food, Katherine Parkin writes, the message has remained consistent. Advertisers have historically promoted food in distinctly gendered terms, returning repeatedly to themes that associated shopping and cooking with women. Foremost among them was that, regardless of the actual work involved, women should serve food to demonstrate love for their families. In identifying shopping and cooking as an expression of love, ads helped to both establish and reinforce the belief that kitchen work was women's work, even as women's participation in the labor force dramatically increased. Alternately flattering her skills as a homemaker and preying on her insecurities, advertisers suggested that using their products would give a woman irresistible sexual allure, a happy marriage, and healthy children. Ads also promised that by buying and making the right foods, a woman could help her family achieve social status, maintain its racial or ethnic identity, and assimilate into the American mainstream. Advertisers clung tenaciously to this paradigm throughout great upheavals in the patterns of American work, diet, and gender roles. To discover why, Food Is Love draws on thousands of ads that appeared in the most popular magazines of the twentieth and early twenty-first centuries, including the Ladies' Home Journal, Good Housekeeping, Ebony, and the Saturday Evening Post. The book also cites the records of one of the nation's preeminent advertising firms, as well as the motivational research advertisers utilized to reach their customers.

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.

Having been in the food service industry since my teens, owning a restaurant and upscale catering service, Ive created and collected many wonderful recipes. My experiences ran the gamut from creating menus for a romantic dinner for two to a spring brunch adorned with tulips, to a Christmas cocktail party for 500 at an estate overlooking Biscayne Bay. We enjoyed enchanting yacht christenings, weddings, and many more special occassions that required food, service and cocktails. Every event was a unique experience. Fitting together seamlessly and matching the food to both the occasion and the host was always a challenge. What I have assembled here are easy to make recipes that dont require extensive, exotic ingredients. Have fun! Awaken the senses! Get the nose, tongue, eyes and ears aroused. If you want to be intimate, create the ambiance. Candles, linen, roses. Do you want to use food as an aphrodisiac? Use dark chocolate paired with a robust red wine. If you want to be hot & spicy, use cayenne and chilies. If you want to be silky and sexy, express it with your sauces. Having 30 friends enjoy an afternoon barbeque? Crank up the music and the grill! Prefer a more staid cocktail party? Doily lined platters, servers donning white gloves and black bowties, soft classical music wafting throughout the room sets that stage. BOOK SUMMARY Were told that FOOD IS LOVE. I say if that is true then COOKING IS FOREPLAY. Making something special for the one you love should be done with care, consideration, sensuality and tenderness. Aphrodisiacs? Cocktails, spices, a rare steak, wine, chocolate, candles, fragrances and music create the ambiance. There need not be a reason. Conceive the menu, prepare the recipes, set the mood and take delight in your affair! The more you put into it, the better it will be.

The #1 New York Times bestselling author of Women Food and God maps a path to meeting one of our greatest challenges-how we deal with money. When Geneen Roth and her husband lost their life savings in the Bernard Madoff debacle, Roth joined the millions of Americans dealing with financial turbulence, uncertainty, and abrupt reversals in their expectations. The resulting shock was the catalyst for her to explore how women's habits and behaviors around money-as with food-can lead to exactly the situations they most want to avoid. Roth identified her own unconscious choices: binge shopping followed by periods of budgetary self-deprivation, "treating" herself in ways that ultimately failed to sustain, and using money as a substitute for love, among others. As she examined the deep sources of these habits, she faced the hard truth about where her "self-protective" financial decisions had led. With irreverent humor and hard-won wisdom, she offers provocative and radical strategies for transforming how we feel and behave about the resources that should, and can, sustain and support our lives.

Women have many secrets. But a woman's secret relationship with food and her body can overshadow other aspects of her life, filling her with obsession, shame and fear. Many women waste countless years focusing on food and appearance, rather than spending energy on what holds deepest meaning for them in life. In What Are You Hungry For? authors Taylor and Ginsburg show how obsessive dieting, a distorted body image and eating disorders are often symptoms of a deep spiritual void. They offer a revolutionary--and easy to follow--approach to resolving deep-seated food and body issues using methods adapted from Eastern mind/body practices such as yoga. What Are You Hungry For? is a discovery book in the tradition of Susie Orbach's Fat is a Feminist Issue and Geneen Roth's When Food is Love. It will change the way you think about your body and the way you approach preparing and eating every single meal. "Finally, an insightful book that ties together food and our spiritual practice What Are You Hungry For? provides both philosophical and practical ways to understand our relationship with what we take into our bodies and to how we are following our internal voices." --Rodney Yee, yoga teacher and star of the bestselling video series "Yoga Journal's Yoga with Rodney Yee"
