Mindfulness can restore the healthy relationship with food we were meant to have. 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 - 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 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 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 on-line audio program of mindful eating exercises led by the author.
