Geneen Roth’s pioneering books were among the first to link compulsive eating and perpetual dieting with deeply personal and spiritual issues that go far beyond food, weight, and body image. Roth believes that we eat the way we live, and that our relationship to food, money, and love is an exact reflection of our deepest held beliefs about ourselves, and the amount of joy, abundance, pain, and scarcity we believe we have (or are allowed) to have in our lives.
For more than 30 years, Roth has taught hundreds of thousands of people meditation, inquiry, and a set of seven eating guidelines that are the foundation of natural eating. Roth helps people see that their actions and beliefs make exquisite sense, and that the way to transform their relationship with food is to be open, curious, and kind with themselves, instead of punishing, impatient, and harsh.
Geneen Roth is the author of nine books, including the New York Times best-sellers When Food is Love and Women Food and God. She has appeared on many national television shows, including the Oprah Winfrey Show, 20/20, NBC Nightly News, the View, and Good Morning America, and her work has been featured in numerous publications, including O: The Oprah Magazine, Cosmopolitan, Time, Elle, the New York Times, the Chicago Tribune, and the Philadelphia Inquirer.
