Meena explains in detail how challenges like guilt, shame and emotional hunger combined with people’s disconnection from natural food sources creates the perfect storm for this dysfunctional relationship. Add to that a society that promotes overconsumption, addiction and lack of personal responsibility, all resulting in more illness and disease. The stress and pressures of uncertain times, cause people to overindulge in food for comfort.
Her book was inspired by the daily struggles of many Americans who seek answers in fad diets, miracle foods and quick fixes. Their pursuit of the ultimate solution often times results in the opposite affect of weight gain, poor digestion and mental health challenges. She explains why people could become anxious, worried and frustrated, and then eventually give up … all because they are not solving the right problem.
