It is clear that standard diet and exercise methods are not working to resolve our modern struggles with weight and food. In Mindful Eating, Mindful Life, world-renowned Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh and Harvard nutritionist Lilian Cheung PhD share with you a new sustainable means of healthy eating and weight loss: mindfulness.
Mindfulness is an approach to living that helps us be in the here and now – and to end our battle with weight once and for all. In this book, the authors show you how to easily adopt the practice of mindfulness and integrate it into your eating habits, physical activity and all other facets of your daily life to achieve the healthy weight and wellbeing you seek. Learn how to:
– Identify the roots of your eating habits and weight issues
– Resolve typical eating problems such as emotional eating, skipping meals, speed-eating and eating at night
– Dissolve barriers and challenges that prevent physical activity, such as having no time, being too tired or feeling unconfident
– Eat and drink in a way that nourishes, energizes and heals your body
Mindful Eating, Mindful Life will not only help you to improve your weight and maintain a healthy body, it will teach you how to make mindfulness a core part of your being so that you find peace and fulfilment in all areas of your life.
Fantastic book! In 3 weeks this book has helped me change my view of food and how I eat it. It is well-written and it helped me change my attitude towards the act of eating in such a way that I have been able to establish healthier eating habits. Also a good introduction to mindfulness in general. I recommend for anyone who has even a mild problem with over-eating.
