Summary
  • "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
  • "The prescriptive answer to WOMEN, FOOD, AND GOD, Alexandra Jamieson's WOMEN, FOOD, AND DESIRE explores women's cravings--for food, sleep, sex, movement, companionship, inspiration--and teaches readers to listen to their bodies and learn to correctly interpret the signs of imbalance in order to satisfy their needs in a healthful way"--
