Jul 01, Connie rated it it was amazing Shelves: I am devouring Roth’s books. View all 3 comments. Jun 29, Marci rated it really liked it Shelves: I just read the following quote today. It’s one of rlth reasons I love reading Geneen Roth’s ideas about eating and health. Our ability to make decisions about what to eat and when. Our belief in ourselves. Our right to decide what goes into our mouths.
Unlike the diets that appear monthly in magazines or the thermal pants that sweat off pounds, ffree a lover or a friend or a car, yo I just read the following quote today. Unlike the diets that appear monthly in magazines or the thermal pants that emootional off pounds, unlike a lover or a friend or a car, your freee is reliable. It doesn’t go away, get lost, stolen.
If you will listen, it will speak.
And that was only on page 7. Can’t wait to read the rest Sep 29, H. Fowler rated it it was ok Shelves: I got through about three chapters before I gave up on this as total crap. There is some wisdom in it about learning to trust your body, but I’m sorry, suggesting that a life-long compulsive eater just “go ahead and eat whatever you want until your body gets sick of it and magically starts to want what’s good for it,” is Dangerous, stupid, ridiculous, irresponsible, need I go on?
I don’t know, maybe it could help others, but if I went that route, I I got through about three chapters before I gave up on this as total crap. I don’t know, maybe it could help others, but if I went that route, I’d be eating Pizza and Nachos constantly, all day long and by the time my body decided it wanted healthy food, I’d be dead from a heart attack. I expected something a little different going into this one, and writing this review two months after reading it, I’m surprised to say that I find myself thinking about Breaking Free a lot.
My major criticism still holds true: Geneen Roth encourages emotional eaters to embrace their cravings and trust that the body will eventually work things out.
This would be fine if it weren’t for the fact that so many people crave emotkonal and harmful substances like sugar and processed foods and alcohol. W I expected something a little different going into this one, and writing this review two months after reading it, I’m surprised to say that I find myself thinking about Breaking Free a lot.
When I say that I expected something different, I think I was looking for something more evidence-based and concrete.
What I’ve come to realize as an afterthought is that the breakin to best health is a process for every individual, and for many individuals including myself the realistic breakinb and sensible advice in this book are profoundly helpful in the right context. I will be reading more by Ms. Roth in eatiny future. Apr 03, Nancy rated it really liked it Recommended to Nancy by: While EAT focuses on learning to hear and trust your own body, Breaking Free gets down to the nitty-gritty of helping you figure out why you eat when you aren’t actually hungry for food.
I really like this mindfulness and body awareness approach. It is very straight forward. I find Roth’s writing to be clear and generally to the point. I appreciate her openness and honesty. I really want to believe and commit and follow through.
Jun 07, Bonnie Brien rated it it was ok Shelves: Well I didn’t really read this. Just a few chapters. I learned that my eating “problems” are not severe at all, and so I don’t need major intervention.
The one helpful thing I learned was to make sure that I’m eating because I’m hungry, and not for other reasons. It was nice to hear from someone who views food in a similar way to me. Jan ffrom, Cathy rated it it geeneen amazing.
A book that everyone needs to read. Whether or not you use food as a drug it allows more understanding on the subject. Like 10 yrs of psychotherapy in a book! Jan 12, Joanne frse it really liked it. Geneen Roth was one of the first to explore the fact that a pizza is comfort disguised as food– for those of us who grew up sharing good times and great conversation around the family dinner table while enjoying this Italian classic entree, we will never be able to separate the gustatory pleasure of it from the deep sense of family, love and community it’s very aroma evokes.

So when times get rough, we don’t have to be hungry to dial PAPA and order a couple of large pizzas– it’s the comfort we’re after, not necessarily the nutrition. Welcome to emotional eating, and the addictive cycle it engenders. This book is filled with insight and is worth reading many times– when I’m able to break the cycle of emotional eating based on this book, I’ll change my rating to 5 stars. Jul 25, Molly rated it liked it Emohional Out of all Geneen Roth books I have read, this is my least favorite and I think it is because she offers a TON of tips to help you not eat emotionally.
To me, the tips were that of WW meetings and every “diet” magazine article out there. And they probably borrowed them from Roth it is just stuff, I have read 3 breeaking times already. And, I have to admit that I got a little pissy when I read about her being fat at I hope to God she if 3 feet tall if she considers that fat ; Toward the emotionxl Out of all Geneen Roth books I have read, this is my least favorite and I think it is because she offers a TON of tips to help you not eat emotionally.
I hope to God she if 3 feet tall if she considers that fat ; Toward the middle of the book, I was bored. I am not eaging I would read it if you have experience with Roth’s other work, but if not, rtoh at it!
Nov 25, Carly rated it liked it Shelves: This book had great advice, and asked very valuable questions! I agree with many reviewers that it would function well as a workbook, with spaces to write in your answers, and practice the exercises. Because it’s essentially a workbook without the workbook format, it was tedious to read at times. But, overall, another excellent resource from Geneen Roth!
Jan 11, Rachel Kain rated it it was amazing. Chock full of information. A true guide to helping end the cycle of emotional eating and creating a healthy relationship with food.
I highly recommend tracking down a copy of “Why Weight” which is a companion workbook that I’m currently working through. Jul 27, Amber rated it it was amazing Shelves: Great book to help with compulsive eating – or any compulsive behavior, for that matter.
Lots of helpful insight, and a bunch of activities one can do to help understand compulsive behavior and how to change and grow.

One’s relationship with food can be very unhealthy, and some people don’t realize that one’s relationship with food is eafing of a bigger condition or environment. Here’s what I got: Jul 15, Sophia Ciocca rated it it was amazing.
