Summary
"A candid memoir by folk legend Judy Collins of her lifelong struggle with compulsive overeating and the spiritual solution that saved her. The discovery of a solution to her problem prompted the desire to share what she has learned, which has brought her peace of mind, a clean food plan, years of maintaining the same weight, and a glow of joy and health. Alternating between chapters on her life and those of the many diet gurus she has come to know (from Lord Byron to Atkins, Jean Nidetch of Weight Watchers, and Andrew Weil), Cravings is the story of the mountains Collins has climbed and the monsters she has encountered on the path to recovery."--
Summary
The platinum-selling folk music artist reveals her lifelong struggle with compulsive eating, describing how after decades of suffering she discovered her addiction to unhealthy ingredients and how embracing a strict diet of careful portions and unprocessed foods has restored her health and sense of wellness
