Rather than pushing away the "crazy" things we do, Roth's work proceeds with the conviction that our actions and beliefs make exquisite sense and that the way to transform our relationships with food is to be open, curious and kind with ourselves—instead of being punishing, impatient and harsh. In the past 30 years, she has worked with hundreds of thousands of people using meditation, inquiry and a set of seven eating guidelines that are the foundation of natural eating.
Roth has appeared on many national television shows, including The Oprah Winfrey Show, 20/20, The NBC Nightly News, The View
and Good Morning America
. Articles about Roth and her work have appeared in numerous publications, including O, The Oprah Magazine, Cosmopolitan, Time, Elle, The New York Times, The Chicago Tribune
and The Philadelphia Inquirer
. She has written a monthly column in Good Housekeeping
magazine since 2007. Roth is the author of eight books, including The New York Times
best-seller When Food Is Love
and a memoir about love and loss, The Craggy Hole in My Heart
. Women, Food, and God: An Unexpected Path to Almost Everything
is her newest book.

Geneen Roth's books were among the first to link compulsive eating and perpetual dieting with deeply personal and spiritual issues that go far beyond food, weight and body image. She believes that we eat the way we live and that our relationships to food, money and love are exact reflections of our deeply held beliefs about ourselves and the amount of joy, abundance, pain and scarcity we believe we have (or are allowed) to have in our lives.
