Author(s): Alexandra Jamieson
Transformational health expert Alexandra Jamieson is a woman on a mission. Having overcome her own food addictions and the weight and health problems these habits caused, she learned something life-altering: when we listen to our cravings, they will lead us onto the path of deep healing. Since her own personal breakthrough more than a decade ago, Alexandra has dedicated her life to helping other women learn to listen to the wisdom of their cravings and make food their greatest ally as they step into their lives with authentic passion.
In this powerfully feminine manifesto, Alexandra dares us to face our cravings head-on, to make the self-commitment to no longer hide out behind food, self-loathing or the limiting expectations of others. With love, deep compassion and fearless honesty, she calls upon all of us to boldly use food as a tool to cleanse ourselves of the nutritional, emotional, physical and mental blocks that limit our ability to live full, meaningful and joyful lives.
In this book she'll show us how:
'Desire is the basis for new conception, new growth, new life. We're born with it. And often talked out of it. When you tap it, you have access to your inner guidance. Women, Food and Desire will show you how. Sweet.' — Dr Christiane Northrup, author of New York Times bestsellers Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom and The Wisdom of Menopause
Women, Food and Desire is a must read! As a physician fully aware of the impact of our thoughts and food on the waistline, I've waited for a book like this: one that brings together the sensual, emotional, and nutritional. Alexandra Jamieson brilliantly empowers women to face their toxic thoughts and food habits to establish a new relationship with their body and cravings. Her functional nutrition experience and vulnerability shine through each page of the book as she simplifies the path women can take to an embodied, pleasurable, and juicy life. — Sara Gottfried, MD, NY Times bestselling author of The Hormone Cure
