Clean Comfort: An Adventure in Food, Courage, and Healing: Finding Peace, Balance, and My Perfect Weight
English | 2014 | ISBN: 1499617518 | 120 pages | EPUB | 3,2 MB
This cookbook-memoir tells the story of the author`s rocky relationship with food, how the dieting hamster wheel ballooned her weight to 345 pounds, and how she ultimately made her way back to balance and sanity – while loving food. It was when Morris finally made peace with herself, healed her inner wounds, and accepted she was a dyed-in-the-wool food lover that she was finally able to release herself from the dieting-gluttony cycle and develop a non-adversarial relationship with food. The first part of the book is a memoir that recounts her early years surviving bullying at school and low self-esteem and how she used food as a salve to distract from unpleasant emotions such as sadness and anger. When she topped out at her highest weight at the age of 44, it was, ironically, a former professional wrestler who ultimately provided the Ivy-League-educated writer her ticket to salvation.
