The answer is, it’s both. Author Nancy Goodman, who had her own struggles with emotional eating and learned her way past them, has written a fun, witty, and relatable novel that one could argue is the best diet book on the market.
Promoted by Networlding Publishing and Jumpstart Inc, A Novel Diet/ A Diet Novel is the first love caper, full of creative plot twists and relationship turns, that sneaks in surprisingly fresh insight and answers for the battle against emotional eating. Through the character Genie Burns, her responses to situations and the people she’s close to, the reader is given a “story tour” of the connection between feelings and food, making this page-turner romantic comedy, a diet book incognito.
Goodman says, “I wanted to send a message that overeating is not just about the food. It’s also about your life and your feelings. I figured the best way to help women understand how to work through emotional eating moments would be to develop a character that is exactly who we are inside. That each of us has that “Genie story” with all sorts of choices to make on a daily basis. It’s just that food steals all our attention!”
Goodman is on a crusade to help America lose weight by replacing comfort food with comfort choices. “I hope the pages of this book will be like potato chips. You can’t stop at one! You see, if I capture my audience’s interest and get them immersed in Genie’s story, and if that invites them to look at their own story, I can help them zap emotional eating, lose weight, and reach their untapped potential, all of which hides behind food. And the best part is, they still get to eat!”
