New York Times bestselling author Geneen Roth has advice that only someone who has traveled that well-worn path from chocolate to despair would know -- and it has paid off for her millions of readers. With sparkling wit and deep compassion, she tackles the secret ways we sabotage ourselves every day and shows us how to break the vicious cycle that keeps us feeling fat, ugly, and miserable.
In an appealing short-essay format, When You Eat at the Refrigerator takes twenty years of Geneen Roth's work with women across the country and encapsulates it into 50 digestible chapters. Filled with pithy, straight-talking truths, it will have readers chuckling in recognition of the elegant simplicity with which Roth will set them free from years of diets and recriminations. With chapters ranging from the practical ("Do Not Sneak Feelings or Food") to the comically truthful ("Give Away Clothes that Cut Off Your Circulation"), this guide can be read from beginning to end, or dipped into to stave off the urge for nachos or their caloric equivalent.
For years, Roth's fans have asked her for a book that could be a kind of pocket support group, and When You Eat at the Refrigerator is destined to be exactly that book.
