Publisher's Summary

What are you hungry for, really?

You may have been drawn to the idea of mindful eating as an antidote to the empty promises of the diet industry, or you may have felt that it's time to pursue a more purposeful, more compassionate way of eating.

Whatever your reasons and whatever your current relationship to food and your body is, this book can help you reconsider your eating habits and whether they are truly serving your highest good.

Through an exploration of the real reasons we overeat, our thoughts and feelings around food, and coming into closer contact with our own true appetites, this book aims to help you craft an open and accepting attitude toward food.

Mindful eating is an attitude toward food (and much more) that encourages awareness, deliberate action, and an open acceptance of the present moment as it unfolds around us.

In this book, we'll look at how the conventional dieting mindset is actually damaging and counterproductive, and how mindful eating can be a refreshing break away from all the expectations that you have about yourself and food that are not serving you.

The ultimate goal is to become exquisitely tuned in to your own appetites, desires, and passions, and to tune out the noise and clutter from the outside world that muffle your innate intuition about what is good for you and what isn't.

When we understand our true hunger, when we realize the psychological, emotional, behavioral, physical, and even spiritual causes behind our overeating, only then can we can start to take realistic steps to remedy it.

it's a really low blow call to vegetarianism.

it was okay till it started to plea towards vegetarianism. they need to be upfront about their hidden agenda... they are not so here ya go.

A Nice and Short Introduction

This short book taught me a major lesson: live in the moment. I'm learning how to eat intuitively and this book was a great intro. The simple act of taking time prior to, during, and after a meal to assess my feelings about the meal and my body's reaction, may be the key in helping me change my lifestyle.

A great overview to true balance

This is a calm, clear and non judge mental introduction to mindful eating. This is not an intense “do this now”. It has given me a lot to think about.

Great book!!!

Really great book! I enjoyed listening to this book and it gave me some really great insight on how to be mindful. I am definitely going to practice taking my time while eating to understand the emotions behind it because that is an area that I struggle with. I like the positivity that this book brought also. I also enjoyed that it was a short listen and not drugged out. Thanks for sharing this knowledge!!!!

very disappointed somewhat!!

I am very disappointed! I purchased this book and listened to the whole thing, non stop, which took about two and a half something hours; I was furious to see that the 30 plus pounds I gained over the last two years did not disappear!!!! ......just kidding! This was a great insightful book!

Slow down

The value I received through this book is to slow down. This is the first book I start my journey of a healthier life. I usually over eat when I want to feel pleasure or happy. I would have loved to hear copping technics.
