Overview

Healthy eating is conscious eating, according to eating disorders specialist Susan Albers. In this book, she introduces concepts of acceptance and awareness of one's eating behaviors, new exercises steeped in Buddhist practices for healing negative patterns in this area, and a means for restoring tranquility to meals. Albers does not encourage a diet of deprivation, but instead provides a checklist for the wide variety of mindless eating approaches, from eating when not hungry to faddish diets to food rituals. Practical exercises grounded in cognitive behavioral research reveal the forces that drive unconscious eating. These step-by-step instructions help readers cut through the mind's chatter and reach a new level of understanding of their relationship to food, weight, and health. This, finally, is a sound weight loss program that uses mindfulness techniques to break the patterns of unhealthy eating.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“In this new edition of Eating Mindfully, Susan Albers gives more advice to those who truly care about what they eat. This book will help the consumer understand that the choices we make each day about what we buy have differing impacts on the world around us and on our own health. Hers is a reasoned voice in an environment where the fast food industry is still urging us to buy cheap food, not revealing the hidden costs. If you want to be healthy and care about a healthy planet, this is a book that will help you.”
—Jane Goodall, PhD, DBE, founder of the Jane Goodall Institute and a United Nations Messenger of Peace

“Albers guides you with compassion and great insight through a journey into your eating habits. How you eat will be transformed and your relationship with food will be revolutionized.”
—Margaret Floyd, NTP, author of Eat Naked

Eating Mindfully is a must-have book for people who want to deepen their mind-body connection through the experience of eating. It is chock-full of practical skill-building steps and written in a genuinely compassionate manner that will inspire you. Inner peace begins with compassion from within, not from perpetual food fights at the dinner table or within the battleground of your mind. This book will show you how to tap your innate ability to make peace with your eating. Eating Mindfully is a welcome respite.”
—Evelyn Tribole, MS, RD, coauthor of Intuitive Eating

“This is a simple and powerful book—one that takes the reader on a journey within to find solutions to their own individual eating difficulties.”
—Denise Lamothe, PsyD, HHD, author of The Taming of the Chew

“The practice of mindful eating is like going on an archeological dig through layers of symptoms to the truth underneath. Albers has given us an excellent map! Her book makes clear that problem eating can be a great teacher if only we stop to listen. I highly recommend this gentle, respectful, practical guide.”
—Lindsey Hall, author of Bulimia: A Guide to Recovery and Anorexia Nervosa: A Guide to Recovery

“We eat to live, yet some of us lose perspective and control of our relationship with food. Albers, drawing upon the powerful integration of Eastern wisdom and Western science, guides us along a practical journey of mindfulness pointing to acceptance of our bodies and ourselves.”
—Thomas F. Cash, PhD, professor of psychology at Old Dominion University and author of The Body Image Workbook

“Susan Albers explores crucial spiritual dimensions that are so often overlooked in our relationship with food. Readers will easily identify the habits that trap them in cycles of mindless dieting, bingeing, and chaotic eating and help them cultivate a compassionate relationship between mind, body, thoughts, and feelings.”
—Rita Freedman, PhD, author of Bodylove: Learning to Like Our Looks and Ourselves
