Overview

In this book, Dr. Susan Albers, brings her unique approach to college students, their parents, and college staff.

Using the principles of mindfulness, Dr. Albers presents a guide to healthy eating and self acceptance that will help readers navigate the weight obsessed, diet crazed, high pressured, fast food saturated college environment, establishing patterns of eating that will form the groundwork for a healthier life well beyond college.

More than a new diet book or collection of superficial self-affirmations, this book gets at issues such as the importance of making informed choices and the value of self acceptance and good health.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"I find the chapter titles appealing and would suspect they would be of interest to college students. There is a place for this book in its field of study. The author ... seems to know the college scene." - Marcia Herrin, Ed.D., MPH, RD, LD, author of Nutrition Counseling in the Treatment of Eating Disorders

"I felt as though Dr. Albers incorporates Eastern (Buddhist) ideas of mindfulness into the college diet. She emphasizes that eating shouldn't be a meaningless part of the day, but should be taken as, if not more, seriously than school work. Dr. Albers captures the everyday life of the average college student in a funny and insightful way. The book is sort of self help meets the diet world. It forces us to look at food and "mindful eating" as part of the overall experience, not merely as an accessory to it." - Katie Goldstein, Sophomore, University of Vermont
