Eating Mindfully: : How to End Mindless Eating and Enjoy a Balanced Relationship with Food (2nd ed)
Eating Mindfully was one of the first books to apply mindfulness techniques to eating. Since its publication, new research has emerged linking mindful eating with weight loss and an increased ability to manage emotional eating tendencies.
Interest in mindful eating has skyrocketed, and thousands of readers have discovered how slowing down and enjoying food can transform the way they eat. This second edition of Eating Mindfully includes new tips and easy-to-use strategies for staying present when eating, savoring food, and controlling cravings. Author Susan Albers has added a new chapter highlighting recent studies on mindful eating and what mindful eating may mean for the national obesity crisis.
This straightforward, entertaining guide offers a complete explanation of the four pillars of mindful eating, help for emotional eaters, and mindful eating tips readers can use during every meal, every day.
‘Susan Albers explores crucial spiritual dimensions that are so often overlooked in our relationship with food. Readers will easily identify the habits that trap them in cycles of mindless dieting, bingeing, and chaotic eating and help them cultivate a compassionate relationship between mind, body, thoughts, and feelings.’ - Rita Freedman, PhD, author of Bodylove: Learning to Like Our Looks and Ourselves
