Geneen Roth ~ Lost & Found, Women, Food & Money

Your patterns with food & money are related. If you diet & binge on food, then you also probably budget & splurge with money. You can heal your relationship to food & money in the same way, at the same time! If you use food as a drug, as a way to “change the channel” when you don’t like what’s going on in your mind or in your life, then you probably use money the same way: To treat yourself when you feel sad or lonely or bored; You tell yourself food myths: If it’s broken, it doesn’t count. If it’s free, it doesn’t count. If I’m cooking, it doesn’t count. If it’s off my kid’s plate, it doesn’t count. You tell yourself money myths as well: If someone’s buying it for me, it doesn’t count. If it’s on sale, it doesn’t count. If I need some comfort today, it doesn’t count. If I can amortize it over a year, it’s so cheap I can’t pass it up.

Geneen Roth believes that your patterns with food & money are related. If you diet & binge on food, then you also probably budget & splurge with money, so she found you can heal your relationship to food & money the same way, at the same time!

Geneen’s pioneering books were among the first to link compulsive eating & perpetual dieting with deeply personal & spiritual issues that go far beyond food, weight & body image.
