I thought I had a food curse…

What else could explain being ok on a diet and then suddenly, out of nowhere, I was head deep in a box of cereal, about to move on to the freezer?

It turns out, I didn't have a food problem. I had a feelings problem. On a moment-to-moment basis, I was having reactions and responses to people, situations, and events in my day. I didn't realize it, but every time I ran to food and then a diet, I was running away from me! It wasn't until I learned to make the connection between my feelings and food, that I was able to keep my weight down.

Your eating patterns are your very own GPS system for food, life, and for love. They lead you to your truth, to the very best part of you, and believe it or not, into those skinny jeans!



“Nancy Goodman has written a book that tells the real truth behind food issues of all kinds. And she does so with great humor, honesty, and style. I love this book!”
