A holistic health counselor and co-star of award-winning documentary Super Size Me explores women’s cravings—for food, sleep, sex, movement, companionship, inspiration—and teaches them to listen to their bodies for a healthier, fuller life. Transformational health expert Alexandra Jamieson is a woman on a mission. Having overcome her own food addictions and the weight and health problems these habits caused, she learned something life-altering: when we listen to our cravings, they will lead us onto the path of deep healing. Since her own personal breakthrough more than a decade ago, Alexandra 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

Editorial Reviews

“As a physician on the front lines of the sugar wars, I’ve long been on the lookout for a book I could recommend to patients who were ready to get off the dieting treadmill and really do the internal work necessary in order to achieve a new relationship with nutritional healing, food, cravings, and their bodies permanently…Women, Food, and Desire is that book.” Dr. Mark Hyman
“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. With practical, easy-to-implement strategies, she shows you how to transcend obstacles and tap into your deepest purpose. Transformative and life-changing!” JJ Virgin, celebrity nutrition and fitness expert
“Alex Jamieson understands the complexity of our relationship with food and how we can heal ourselves from a lifetime of self-judgment in regard to it. There is deep knowledge and insight in Women, Food, and Desire, and the best part is we are not alone and we can enjoy our lives by understanding this part of ourselves.” Mariel Hemingway
“The feminist perspective and focus on self-care, as well as Jamieson’s honesty about her own struggles, create a compelling authenticity. Far from another faddish diet guru, Jamieson guides readers into revolutionizing their entire relationship with food and their bodies.” Publishers Weekly
