Women have many secrets. But a woman's secret relationship with food and her body can overshadow other aspects of her life, filling her with obsession, shame and fear. Many women waste countless years focusing on food and appearance, rather than spending energy on what holds deepest meaning for them in life.

In What Are You Hungry For? authors Taylor and Ginsburg show how obsessive dieting, a distorted body image and eating disorders are often symptoms of a deep spiritual void. They offer a revolutionary--and easy to follow--approach to resolving deep-seated food and body issues using methods adapted from Eastern mind/body practices such as yoga.

What Are You Hungry For? is a discovery book in the tradition of Susie Orbach's Fat is a Feminist Issue and Geneen Roth's When Food is Love. It will change the way you think about your body and the way you approach preparing and eating every single meal.

"Finally, an insightful book that ties together food and our spiritual practice What Are You Hungry For? provides both philosophical and practical ways to understand our relationship with what we take into our bodies and to how we are following our internal voices." --Rodney Yee, yoga teacher and star of the bestselling video series "Yoga Journal's Yoga with Rodney Yee"

It's time for a new manifesto and a new definition of beauty and liberation. We propose that the ultimate goal for women today is achieving true happiness, and that it doesn't come from surface fullfillment...If we're free on the outside while still trapped inside, believing that life is worthwhile only if we're slim and beautiful, then what's the point? Until women are free to be themselves-each a whole person with an inside and an outside-they will never feel truly liberated or truly beautiful. --From the back of dust jacket
Combines my two favorite topics : Yoga and losing weight. Thought provoking book.I'm familiar with the writers from "Yoga Journal" magazine, and really enjoyed the book. Some drawings of Yoga poses included.
I have enjoyed the journey of yoga life for the past year and this is the piece that is my logical next step. I have always battled depression and my weight from one extreme to the other. Mostly on the heavy side with a lot of guilt and regret. I have 2 small children and I am motivated to break the cycle of poor eating patterns. Thank you for this guide.
very nice product and customer service
...to get you thinking. The authors briefly share each of their previous eating issues and their recovery. They then carry you through the expirince of getting in touch with your deepest needs and desires, which begins with you identifying your "life purpose". You will then incorporate this purpose into the remanider of the exersizes in the book.
From a person who has battled body and food issues for some time, the authors present a new way of viewing my feelings and struggles. Take note that there are many exersizes (which they refer to as "practices") that are time consuming. In addition, to get the most out of this book, you have to be at a place where you are really ready to look at your food/body issues. It is not a diet book, it does not advocate weight loss. The goal, as I see it, is peace.
I personally have yet to follow all the exersizes but believe that when I am ready to truely confront my food/body deamons and take the time for the practices, this will be just what I need. (had i already done more of the exersizes I may have given the book 5 stars).
great bk. great insights...but after reading another book on "eating mindfully", i would say that this bk focuses on body image more than eating spiritually and the authors take an extended time to get to the point at times. overall, very informative and helpful.
The analogy of swimming to dieting makes one feel relieved when he doesn't have the overeating habit. "When it comes to dieting...is the food equivalent to holding your breath under water." That's precisely the reason so many of us older people never learned to swim -- fear of holding one's face under the water. At some point, "your body forces you to surface gasping for air." But what if you don't. There's always that possibility.

We all crave sugar (cakes, candies, ice cream) many times as we get older. They are our comfort foods. But salt -- we've been told over and over no salt if your blood pressure is high. When I'm stressed, I know my pressure is too high as my face gets flushed. But to eat popcorn at the movies, there must be lots of butter and salt to make it worthwhile.

Sooner or later, each of us is put on a diet. But the non-gluten one I've been chosen as a guinea pig is not for me. Consider: 93 lbs. after losing six pounds in one month due to stress. Who has time for a diet? Not I; I just don't have time to eat properly. I've told several people I'd love to have some of their excess fat. But if you're in need of a "healthy" diet, this is the book for you.
