What if you stopped fighting your food cravings, and made friends with them? What if, instead of ignoring the shame you feel about the food on your plate, you started investigating it? Geneen Roth has waged war against food with the best of us. But one day, on the verge of suicide, she called a truce, and discovered a world of emotions and beliefs she'd been shielding herself from - by eating. Now, she explains how the stories you tell yourself about your relationship to food can reveal deeper truths about your true yearnings, even your relationship to spirit. She explains, "It's so important to look directly at these beliefs, because they're not just beliefs about food. They are getting acted out in the relationship with food - but scratch the surface, take away the relationship with food, and that belief is still there. That's something you're telling yourself, something you learned about yourself, deduced about yourself." In this interview she explains how making friends with your food can free you from your cravings - and help you replace shame with understanding. (hosted by Justine Willis Toms)
