It’s Not About Food
gives you the tools and the understanding to break the destructive
cycle of bingeing, dieting, and self-starvation. By using the proven techniques
developed in the Beyond Hungerworkshops, you will be able
to transform your relationship not only with food, but also with your body
and yourself. These exercises and meditations will help you determine the
differences between what your body craves to eat, what your mind thinks
you should eat, and what your emotions are driving you to eat. This non-diet
approach goes beneath the symptoms of eating disorders and explores the
cultural pressures women face, along with the physical, emotional, and spiritual
concerns that create the need to overeat or undereat in the first placePraise
For It’s Not About Food:
“In this unique, courageous
book, Carol Normandi andLaurelee Roark
teach women the essential skills to access their own power and inner guidance
in order to overcome eating disorders. Readers will learn how to reach full
recovery by looking internally and towards themselves instead of externally
and towards sociocultural influences, which attempt to regulate female hunger.
It’s Not About Food is an important part of the
growing movement to return women’s bodies to their rightful owners.” -Naomi
Wolf, author of The Beauty Myth “Women who read this book will
be inspired to throw away their diets and scales and pick up on the nurturing,
caring voice presented in these pages.” -from the Foreword of It’s
Not About Food
by Jane R. Hirschmann and Carol H. Munter,
authors of Overcoming Overeating and When Women Stop Hating
Their Bodies
“…Normandi and Roark
are like patient coaches detaching women from their obsessions with food,
deprogramming societal and family messages about acceptable weight, offering
tools and exercises to transform destructive behaviors into opportunities
for self-reflection.” -San Jose Mercury News

Every year, desperate parents try to save their
daughters from starving themselves to death. Yet every year, more girls
eat less to look like their favorite supermodels. With this sobering fact
in mind, Carol Emery Normandi and Laurelee Roark developed this book based
on their ongoing workshops and the feedback of hundreds of young women.
They look at the behaviors that may lead to eating disorders and the cultural,
emotional, and physical reasons girls obsess about weight and eating. They
go on to offer girls and their parents a map and a method for finding a
realistic and livable balance. Stories and quotations from girls who have
struggled with eating disorders give the book immediacy, and exercises and
writing suggestions steer girls toward a healthy self-image and wholesome
eating patterns.Review
by from Washington State:

Over It looks at cultural, emotional & physical
reason why girls obsess about weight & eating, then goes on to show
how it can be different. Each section guides readers toward understanding
their feelings, acknowledging their fears & concerns without judgement
& recasting their thoughts & habits toward a healthy self-image
& eating patterns. That said, this is not a dry book of recriminations,
self-flagellations & hopeless stories; rather it is an elegant, lively,
informative text book that offers you a lot to occupy your mind & a
lot of different ways to look at your life. In Amber’s story you learn how
compulsive eating can start; you’ll see how Bulimia Nervosa took over her
mind & took her off on a dangerous detour. Laurelee’s story about Anorexia
Nervosa tells how it got a hold of her & wrecked her young life. Carol
& Laurelee explain both disorders in clear yet clinical descriptions.
There are section about boys & eating disorders & for parents who
provide the food for the family & how their lifestyles also contribute.
Carol & Laurelee have founded Beyond Hunger, a nonprofit organization,
after recovering from their own eating disorders. Beyond Hunger offers support
groups, workshops & education for adults & teen with eating disorders
& body image disturbances. Do check out my lively eInterview with Carol
& Laurelee – I think you’ll be amazed! Praise for Over It:
“An important book for any teen who has ever struggled with an eating disorder.”
- Naomi Wolf, author of The Beauty MythOver It teaches
young women the language of healthy body image and natural eating and gives
parents the skills to guide their daughters toward self-esteem and contentment.
This much-needed book will help young women understand their feelings and
learn to love and care for their bodies.” – John Gray, author of Men
Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus
“An important book about an important
topic. This isn’t small stuff.” – Richard Carlson, author of Don’t Sweat
the Small Stuff
“If you’re smart, you’ll read this book, get over it,
then pass it on to your girlfriends and your mom. Life changing advice!”
- Jane R. Hirschmann and Carol H. Munter, authors ofOvercoming Overeating
and When Women Stop Hating Their Bodies
