    Hi ladies. I've not posted much on here lately cause I've been really busy with work but I just wanted to tell you about a book I'm reading. It's called exactly that... Women Food and God (by Geneen Roth).
    And no, it's not a book about religion. Word God has been used here very loosely.
    For you who haven't heard of it or read it.
    It's absolutely fascinating, eye opening and mesmerising!
    I couldn't recommend it enough for anyone who's on this forum to come to terms with their relationship with food and the effects it has on ones life!
    I'll quote in a nutshell the back page of the book. It talks about a relatively basic but profound concept.
    The way we eat is inseparable from our core beliefs about being alive. The author urges us to pay attention to what we truly need- which cannot be found in a supermarket. Ultimately, she reveals how our relationship with food is the doorway to freedom and what we want most: the demystification of weight loss and the luminous presence that so many of us call 'God'.

    Get the book ladies (and gentlemen, it's valid for guys too).
    £10 worth spending!

    :)
