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.

Omega Institute Accepting Your Truth: An Interview With Mark Nepo
An Interview With Mark Nepo
Omega: Is there a poem that inspired you to be a poet? Mark: The poetry of Pablo Neruda really inspired me. When I first read his work, I felt like, “I must belong to this tribe.” My oldest friend, Robert, who comes with me as a guest every year when I teach at Omega, introduced me to Neruda. I was so moved, I wouldn’t give him the book back. Omega: In 1987, you were diagnosed with a rare form of lymphoma, which has greatly informed much of your work. What’s the first step toward healing?  More
Omega Institute Rewild Your Gut by Robynne Chutkan
Our ancestors had a symbiotic relationship with their microbes that evolved over millions of years and served them well. They were benevolent hosts to a dense jungle of microscopic creatures, including worms and other parasites that actually contributed to their health. Large predators and the absence of food were their main threats, not the hundreds of diseases that afflict us today. The irony is that as we’ve “unwilded” our bodies and our environment in an effort to become healthier, we’ve actually become a lot sicker in some important ways. More

Omega Institute Self-Test: Do You Have Food Intolerances? Avoid These 7 Common Allergans by JJ Virgin
Avoid These 7 Common Allergens
The more trouble you’ve had with losing weight and keeping it off, the more likely it is that food intolerance is at the root of your problem. Even if you’re not experiencing symptoms, highly reactive or high-food intolerance (high-FI) foods are almost certainly behind your struggles with weight loss. If yogurt, eggs, soymilk, and whole-wheat bread are a frequent part of your diet—and especially if you’re eating them every day—your system is overwhelmed with problem foods, and your immune system never really calms down.

Omega Institute 6 Reasons to Try Bone Broth for Weight Loss by Kellyann Petrucci
Early in my career, I quickly established a track record of success as a weight loss specialist. But I wanted to do even better for my patients—and, in particular, I wanted to achieve the biggest results in the shortest time for patients struggling with obesity. Many of the people I work with merely want to lose a dress size or a pants size, but others are dangerously overweight. They’re diabetic, they have heart disease, they have sleep apnea, and they can barely move. So they need to drop weight fast. More
Omega Institute Live Dirty & Eat Clean: An Interview With Robynne Chutkan
An Interview With Robynne Chutkan
Omega: Your mantra is "live dirty and eat clean." What do you mean by that? Robynne: To “live dirty" means to restore our essential connection with nature and with the trillions of microbes that call our bodies home—and whose survival is inextricably linked to ours. To “eat clean” means to eat unprocessed food from nature (mostly plants) grown responsibly, without harmful pesticides, etc. Omega: What’s your personal recipe for feeling your best? Robynne: I feel my best when I hit this triad: More
