The Mindfulness-Based Eating Solution

Image and Text

What are you really hungry for? Is it food, happiness, or something else? In this unique book, mindfulness expert Dr. Lynn Rossy offers a proven-effective, whole-body approach to help you discover the real reasons why you’re overeating.

If you find yourself eating without thinking, because you feel bored or sad, or simply because you’ve had a hard day, indulging here and there is understandable. But emotional eating can often spiral out of control. By following the guidance in this book, you can learn how to listen to your body, heart and mind—guiding you towards health and happiness in all aspects of your life and without giving up your love for food. In fact, according to a recent study, women in the author’s Eat for Life program reported greater mindfulness, higher levels of body appreciation and intuitive eating, and lower levels of problematic eating behaviors than the wait list comparison group.

If you want to truly enjoy your food, respect your body, and savor your life, the easy-to-use strategies in this book will show you how—one mindful taste at a time.

A book to read absolutely!

If you have any problems with food or in your relationship with your body, I highly recommend Lynn’s book. One of the best Mindful Eating books I know: direct, practical, simple, full of exercises and mindfulness practices. I highly recommend also the 10-week “Eat for Life” course, based on the book: an intense and revealing experience that will help you to get relief from suffering with your relationship with food and eating. Lynn is an enthusiastic and passionate writer and teacher who knows how to treat delicate subjects with wisdom, humanity and lightness. Her work and dedication are a precious gift. Alessandra P.
