The art of mindfulness can transform our struggles with food-and renew our sense of pleasure, appreciation, and satisfaction with eating. Drawing on recent research and integrating her experiences as a physician and meditation teacher, Dr. Jan Bays offers a wonderfully clear presentation of what mindfulness is and how it can help with food issues. Mindful eating is an approach that involves bringing one's full attention to the process of eating-to all the tastes, smells, thoughts, and feelings that arise during a meal. Whether you are overweight, suffer from an eating disorder, or just want to get more out of life, this book offers a simple tool that can make a remarkable difference. In this audiobook, you'll learn how to: *Tune into your body's own wisdom about what, when, and how much to eat *Eat less while feeling fully satisfied *Identify your habits and patterns with food *Develop a more compassionate attitude toward your struggles with eating *Discover what you're really hungry for

Professional reviews

"Author Jan Chozen Bays offers a reflective narration of her book, which promotes a thoughtful approach to eating. Bays points out that people have given up their health and their appreciation of food as a result of a culture that promotes artificial techniques to improve physical appearance, high-efficiency multitasking, and convenience foods. Bays, who is also a longtime Zen teacher, evokes a tone of mindful listening with her low voice and smooth, deliberately paced reading. She offers abundant practical and sustainable tips and exercises not only for improving a personÕs relationship with food but also for developing a more wholesome way of life.
