Women, Food, and Desire

Embrace Your Cravings, Make Peace with Food, Reclaim Your Body

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


A holistic health counselor and co-star of award-winning documentary Super Size Me explores women’s cravings—for food, sleep, sex, movement, companionship, inspiration—and teaches them to listen to their bodies for a healthier, fuller life.

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:
· Our cravings are the gatekeepers of our deepest longings and desires
· Transforming habits set us free
· Detoxing unclutters our bodies and minds so we may engage in our lives with more power and authenticity
· Embracing our sexual selves makes us more powerful
· Trusting ourselves and surrounding ourselves with a nurturing community is essential for a vital, healthy, hot life

From Publishers Weekly

Oct 06, 2014 – Holistic nutrition coach Jamieson (Vegan Cooking for Dummies) shares a healthy and healing approach to eating well and listening to the body and heart's true desires. For women in particular, this involves replacing feelings of "shame, guilt, and discomfort" surrounding food and learning to "dismantle the negative monologue" about body image. Refreshingly, Jamieson denounces typical dieting and abnegation, calling them "too restrictive" and "unsustainable," and going so far as to state that "sometimes it's OK to just eat the chocolate." Instead, she advises making eating an intuitive process and using a hunger-monitoring scale to decide when and how much to consume. The feminist perspective and focus on self-care, as well as Jamieson's honesty about her own struggles, create a compelling authenticity. This is balanced with information on the neuroscience of cravings, how to break eating habits ingrained since childhood, and smart tactics for food shopping. She offers a version of the familiar elimination diet that involves cutting out six "toxic" ingredients, one at a time, to better judge how each may be affecting you. Other topics include cultivating a fulfilling sex life rather than using food to satisfy desires, getting adequate rest, and taking a pleasure-seeking rather than punitive approach to fitness. Far from another faddish diet guru, Jamieson guides readers into revolutionizing their entire relationship with food and their bodies.
