In this book, Dr. Susan Albers, the author of "Eating Mindfully: How to End Mindless Eating and Enjoy a Balanced Relationship with Food", brings her unique approach to college students, their parents, and college staff. Using the principles of mindfulness outlined in her earlier book, Dr. Albers presents a guide to healthy eating and self acceptance that will help readers navigate the weight obsessed, diet crazed, high pressured, fast food saturated college environment, establishing patterns of eating that will form the groundwork for a healthier life well beyond college. The aim of this book is to help the reader empower herself to make mindful choices about what, when, where, and how to eat in order to avoid the dreaded "freshman fifteen" without falling into dangerous patterns that could lead to the development of an eating disorder. Written in a light, engaging style that should appeal to college students, parents, counselors and college staff alike, this book has the potential to help people change their eating habits for the better.
