The Writing Diet: Using Creativity to Balance the Body


From the bestselling author of The Artist’s Way, a revolutionary diet plan: Use art to take off the pounds!
Over the course of the past twenty-five years, Julia Cameron has taught thousands of artists and aspiring artists how to unblock wellsprings of creativity. And time and again she has noticed an interesting thing: Often, in uncovering their creative selves her students also undergo a surprising physical transformation-invigorated by their work, they slim down. In The Writing Diet, Cameron illuminates the relationship between creativity and eating to reveal a crucial equation: creativity can block overeating.
This inspiring weight-loss program, which can be used in conjunction with Cameron’s groundbreaking book on the creative process, The Artist’s Way, directs readers to count words instead of calories, to substitute their writing’s "food for thought" for actual food. Using journaling to examine their relationship with food-and to ward off unhealthy overeating -readers will learn to treat food cravings as invitations to evaluate what they are truly craving in their emotional lives.
The Writing Diet presents a brilliant plan for using one of the soul’s deepest and most abiding appetites-the desire to be creative-to lose weight and keep it off forever.  Buy on Barnes and Noble or at Amazon.
