Why Weight? A Guide to Ending Compulsive Eating. Connects you to the online bookstore that sells this wonderful book by Geneen Roth. One customer who read it describes it as follows: Geneen Roth has a deceptively simple idea to offer her readers. She’s not advocating some ridiculous fad or some new diet plan. Instead, Geneen’s idea is that through years of cycling through diet and deprivation followed by bingeing, we have lost touch with our innate sense of when we are hungry or full. It is only by learning how to listen to our bodies that we can finally get out of the madness of compulsive eating and regain peace and control in our lives.
