Dr. Judi Hollis, founder of the nation’s first eating disorders hospital unit, reports that in 30 years of clinical practice, she has never met a starving or bingeing person who wasn’t raging within. Why; what is the link between unexpressed anger and food obsession?
In Fat & Furious, Dr. Hollis traces the rage back to the “mother-daughter” wound where, at the root of all disordered eating, is one painful truth – our mothers passed on denial about their true pain, making healthy separation for their daughters impossible. When daughters cannot claim their lives they try to sedate, control & suppress themselves – with food.
Facing the mother-daughter wound does not mean blaming your mother but rather fearlessly confronting the ways in which we are repeating the dynamics of the mother-daughter relationship in our iives today. Fat & Furious is not an answer book. It is a book that will teach you how to ask probing questions – the first step to self-healing. With the wisdom & guidance in Fat & Furious, you will begin to hear and trust your own inner voice – & you will never be hungry again.
