really liked it

Trying to decide what I think of this book - been on my shelf a long time and I know her work influences Beyond Chocolate (which I can already see has had transformational impact on life). Roth seems to be coming more from a Buddhist perspective than the God I think of, but it’s a wide and accepting definition. Overall, Roth believes that our relationship with food says much about our relationship with ourselves - and how often we use it (or other things such as work) to numb other things we don’t want to deal with, though in many ways that’s just adding another layer of pain. Interesting insights from the retreats she runs, and a huge amount about ‘self-care’ and ‘self-compassion’ and learning to ignore ‘The Voice’ that has shaped so much of our lives.
