I read Geneen's work in the middle of my eating disorder. I didn't begin using it right away because I didn't trust it. I didn't like it. I didn't think it would work. It does.
Different approaches work for different people. I think this worked for me because, deep down Geneen's philosophy is in accordance with my own. I wanted to be my own authority. I wanted it bad enough to give this a try. I didn't tell myself I had to do this forever. I didn't have blind faith. I also didn't give up on it in the first three months. I gave myself a year to decide. A year, where I promised myself I wouldn't diet. A year in which to work through every exercise I reasonably could. In addition to committing to this book, I continued seeing a therapist on a weekly basis. That helped, but this book is what ultimately gave me coping tools. I know that I was in the extreme, not everybody needs as much help as I did. I also know that distorted eating is very normal in this culture. I feel blessed to have been able to examine something so fundamental, and transform what was a problem to a benefit. I've read all of Ms. Roth's books and enjoyed each of them. This one has a great combination of explaining and exercises to do, which is why I chose it. However, the chapters are widely divergent in terms of work. Her other book "Why Weight" appears to be the same exact work better organized, but less expository. If you are unsure if this work is for you, buy or borrow "Breaking Free". If after reading through it you feel excited but overwhelmed by the work load, you may wish to try "Why Weight" as a work book.
I rarely review books. I chose to review this one because it was life changing, and a big risk. Hopefully my experience is of some help.
I just reread this book one full time through again-- I usually refer to certain chapters at certain points in my life, but I found myself completely pulled back into compulsion recently-- and once again, this book helped me save myself.
Geneen Roth is inspiring and-- dare I say?-- caring. She speaks to the reader with deep empathy as someone who has been there and truly wishes to help. This book taught me to do the daring thing I had never considered before-- love and value myself. To learn to eat when I was hungry. It sounds so simple to someone who may not struggle with food, but that's what this book does. It teaches you how to eat when you are hungry and it affirms that you are worthy. It is a beautiful book, raw in its empathy and emotion.
Granted, it may not help everyone. Every person is different. But I daresay it will help many, and it certainly helped-- that's an understatement-- me.
