Summary
Geneen Roth's When Food Is Love profoundly explored the relationship between eating and intimacy in women's lives. Her rejection of convention in dieting practices has motivated hundreds of thousands of women to think more deeply about, and alter their relationship to, eating and food. When Food Is Love became a bestseller - but in the wake of that success, Roth found herself in an unexpected position: she descended into a long illness, losing what she thought she could never live without - her health, her hair, and even her best friend. In Appetites: On the Search for True Nourishment, Geneen Roth explores, with great insight and clarity, the process of questioning what was at the core of her own life, her ultimate return to good health, and the new and unexpected ways she found to nourish herself and those she has loved and worked with. Over the course of this journey, Roth looked deeply into women's friendships and what happens when they change; the longing for success and affirmation for one's work; the conflicting emotions a woman can have when she considers whether or not to have a child; the longing for a safe place to live and build toward the future. She writes, "Appetites is the story of friends and women with whom I've worked as they've questioned the meaning of success, thinness, friendship, and fulfillment ... Why, I asked myself, is an embarrassment of riches embarrassing? Why do most women feel they will lose friends as they lose weight? ... What feels good about feeling bad? And where do we turn for nourishment when it's not in the places we thought it would be?"
