Women, Food, and Desire
#1 Bestselling Book, as seen in Oprah Magazine
What happens when a professional vegan chef starts to crave meat? 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:
“The diet that heals you, isn’t always the diet that will sustain you.”
And 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 wo-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
· 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
The Great American Detox Diet
From the co-star and co-creator of Oscar Nominated Super Size Me
Alex Jamieson knew that her then-boyfriend Morgan Spurlock would systematically destroy his body with a 30-day diet of McDonald’s food – and she had the remedy ready when he concluded the experiment that would ultimately frame the hit documentary Super Size Me.
Spurlock went from excellent health to a 13% body weight increase, a shocking 230 cholesterol level, and an immense amount of fat accumulation in his liver. It was a lot of damage to undo, but Alex’s skills and expertise were more than up to the challenge: she brought Spurlock swiftly back to his pre-McDonald’s health with a clean, freshly sourced vegan diet.
The Great American Detox diet is an “anti-diet” book that replaces packaged foods with whole foods that strengthen bodily systems, restore vitality, and boost immunity. It also discusses what’s really in that fast-food burger, microwaveable dinner, or box of cookies to show what cravings are being satiated by their consumption – and how we can satisfy those same cravings without resorting to junk.
Just as Spurlock demonstrated that bad food choices can destroy us on physical, emotional, and psychological levels, Jamieson’s work shows that good food choices can quite literally change our lives on every level – for the better.
