The Love-Powered Diet: Eating for Freedom, Health, and Joy

Victoria Moran

Lantern Books,  May 2009

Finally, make peace with food and have a body you're proud of by drawing on the wisdom and grace already inside you. Replace cravings with calmness. Relate to food as a loving friend, not a feared enemy.

In her own quest for freedom from compulsive eating and yo-yo dieting, Moran -- once the chubby child of a diet doctor -- discovered the power of combining the principles of the Twelve Step Program with the gentle way of eating espoused by yogis and mystics, and now supported by cutting-edge nutritional research. The result: failing in love -- with yourself, your life, and The Love-Powered Diet!
