Best nonfiction book? Why?
Geneen Roth is a beautiful writer. Her books offer two of the things I love best: careful, flowing prose and very intimate true stories. Through her books you get to know her story and her struggles—and you come out of it believing that what she did is something that you can do, too.
Best nonfiction book? What’s in it?
Overcoming Emotional Overeating is an introduction to the intuitive eating approach to diet. It’s a memoir as well as a diet book, offering practical guidelines for implementing the intuitive eating approach and Roth’s personal stories learning the same.
Intuitive eating is the ultimate non-diet. Intuitive eaters eat anything they want, anytime they want to—as long as they’re truly hungry, and what they’re eating is what they sense their body is asking for (you know, intuitively).
Geneen Roth’s eating guidelines:
- Eat only when you are hungry.
- Eat sitting down in a calm environment (not in the car).
- Eat without distractions.
- Eat only what your body wants.
- Eat until you are satisfied, not until you are full.
- Eat with the intention of being in full view of others. (Meaning, don’t scarf.)
- Eat with enjoyment.
