A nutritionist explains how to practice mindful eating for improved health and digestion, your healthiest weight, and a greater sense of calm. Forget counting calories, strict portion control, and restrictive diet plans. Say goodbye to yo-yo dieting forever.

Eating a sandwich while running from a bear isn't good for digestion or nutrition. That's exactly what we're doing when eating a meal on the run or being distracted by computers, TVs, and newspapers. Rather than nourishing our bodies, we are feeding anxiety and poor habits that prevent our systems from functioning well. Author and registered dietitian Michelle Babb shows you how to practice mindful eating that lets your body access the nutrients from food and turn on its self-regulating system. It's the sustainable way to shed pounds, maintain your healthiest weight, and ensure optimal digestion. When you build a positive relationship with food, you reduce binge and emotional eating. Included in the book are 30 vegetarian recipes designed to enhance your introduction to mindful eating by engaging all the senses.
