Ravenous: A Food Lover’s Journey from Obsession to Freedom by Danya Macy.

This fabulous book is filled with insight and wisdom as the author Danya Macy attempts to free herself from her obsession with weight and food by learning both more about the food as well as herself.

We follow Macy on her journey and learn about the responsibility of eating meat after visiting an abattoir, about the love of land many farmers have and try to cultivate whether they raise goats or lettuce. This is definitely a journey of love and hope.

For those who are obsessed with weight and food read this book and find hope and inspiration to listen to the deeper cravings of your body that you may be trying to replace with food. I highly recommend this book.

There are several films in Films on Demand about eating disorders as well as overeating/binge eating/food addiction. We also have several books in the Library, including:

Why can’t I stop eating? : recognizing, understanding, and overcoming food addiction (also available as an e-book)

Twelve steps for overeaters

Mindless eating : why we eat more than we think

The binge eating & compulsive overeating workbook

Your brain on food : how chemicals control your thoughts and feelings

The answer to addiction : the path to recovery from alcohol, drug, food, and sexual dependencies

Food addiction

You’ll want to borrow this book through InterLibrary Loans.
