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 when her students uncover their creative selves they 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 directs readers to count words instead of calories, to substitute their writing's food for thought for actual food. "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.
