Sue Baker's view...

Food can be an enemy to some, it can overcome good intentions and binging will ramp up the pounds, we know eating doesn’t stop the hurt and that cake can’t heal but what to do? Now, with the aid of Alexandra Jamieson it’s possible to find ways of listening to the body and to learn what it really needs, casting off unhealthy food relationships. Less a diet book than a feminist manifesto, exposing food addictions and how to vanquish them.

Synopsis

Women, Food and Desire Embrace Your Cravings, Make Peace with Food, Reclaim Your Body by Alexandra Jamieson

Since her own personal breakthrough more than a decade ago, Alexandra Jamieson has dedicated her life to helping other women learn to listen to the wisdom of their cravings and make food their greatest ally as they step into their lives with authentic passion. In this powerfully feminine manifesto, Alexandra dares us to face our cravings head-on, to make the self-commitment to no longer hide out behind food, self-loathing or the limiting expectations of others. With love, deep compassion and fearless honesty, she calls upon all of us to boldly use food as a tool to cleanse ourselves of the nutritional, emotional, physical and mental blocks that limit our ability to live full, meaningful and joyful lives. In this book she'll show us how: * Our cravings are the gatekeepers of our deepest longings and desires * Transforming habits sets us free * Detoxing unclutters our bodies and minds so we may engage in our lives with more power and authenticity * Embracing our sexual selves makes us more powerful * Trusting ourselves and surrounding ourselves with a nurturing community is essential for a vital, healthy, hot life.

Reviews

'Desire is the basis for new conception, new growth, new life. We're born with it. And often talked out of it. When you tap it, you have access to your inner guidance. Women, Food and Desire will show you how. Sweet.' -- Dr Christiane Northrup, author of New York Times bestsellers 'Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom 'The Wisdom of Menopause'

'Women, Food and Desire is a must read! As a physician fully aware of the impact of our thoughts and food on the waistline, I've waited for a book like this: one that brings together the sensual, emotional, and nutritional. Alexandra Jamieson brilliantly empowers women to face their toxic thoughts and food habits to establish a new relationship with their body and cravings. Her functional nutrition experience and vulnerability shine through each page of the book as she simplifies the path women can take to an embodied, pleasurable, and juicy life.' -- Sara Gottfried, MD, NY Times bestselling author of 'The Hormone Cure

'Combining humor and candor with a smart, science-based approach, Alexandra Jamieson helps you develop a healthier, sexier, more vital existence in Women, Food and Desire.

Transformative and life-changing! -- JJ Virgin CNS, CHFS, celebrity nutrition & fitness expert
