So, how's your relationship with food going?

book cover women food and god by geneen rothA confession and a revelation first: I didn't seek out this book; my supervising counsellor recommended I read it. So I duly obtained a copy and began. And the revelation: This book has nothing to do with God as Christianity knows it.

Within a few pages I wanted to toss the book across the room. Apparently, many other readers and people who've attended the author's retreats felt the same way. You might too, if you decide to read it. But, since this was 'assigned homework', I persisted. And I'm glad I did - because the book is full of insights, gentle guidance, and sometimes in-your-face realisations about your relationship with food.

There are some really enjoyable insights into "your internal weather pattern" (p.193), how the way you eat could be the key to finding what you believe in (p.77), and lots of others. But you'll probably have to keep reading beyond your discomfort, as I did.

If you suspect that your relationship with what you eat perhaps isn't all that you'd like it to be, then you'll find this book useful. But perhaps not enjoyable in the beginning. Persist.
