Food. It should be one of life's great pleasures, yet many of us have such a conflicted relationship with it that we miss out on that most basic of satisfactions. But it is possible--and not really all that difficult--to reclaim the joy of eating, according to Dr Jan Bays. And mindfulness is the key.
Her approach involves bringing one's full attention to the process of eating, to all the tastes, smells, thoughts and feelings that arise during a meal. She shows how to:
Tune into your body's own wisdom about what, when, and how much to eat
Identify your habits and patterns with food
Develop a more compassionate attitude toward your struggles with eating
Discover what you are really hungry for
Whether you suffer from an eating disorder or just want to get more out of life, this book offers a simple tool that can transform your relationship with food into one of ease and delight.
This new edition, updated throughout, contains a new chapter on how to provide children with a foundation in mindful eating that will serve them well all the rest of their lives. It also includes a link to a 75-minute online audio program of mindful eating exercises led by the author.
