“I’ve been writing for publication since I was a teenager. I wanted to meet the Beatles so I got a $1 press card from a teen magazine. It worked: I got into my first Beatles’ press conference at fourteen, my second at fifteen, and when I was seventeen, Paul McCartney bought me a drink. That’s when I knew that even though I was just an ordinary girl from Kansas City with a recurrent weight problem and bad skin, I really did live a charmed life.”
Her revised and updated classic, The Love-Powered Diet: Eating for Freedom, Health, and Joy (Lantern Books) was rereleased in 2009 and is climbing the charts once again. Victoria was once 60 pounds overweight, but she’s been free from “eating for a fix” for an astounding 25 years. Her “Love-Powered” approach begins by tapping the wisdom and grace already inside to help make delicious, satisfying food choices that expresses a love of self.
