The “Mindful Eating: How to Eat Mindfully to Take Control, Feel Satisfied, and Lose Weight” is an excellent book with lots of useful information, tips and techniques to improve our overall diets. Julie Brinker is the author of this book. This book is unique in that it takes a holistic look at healthy eating and lifestyle. It is a logical and realistic approach to the subject, Eating is a human activity that is supposed to be pleasurable and healthy. It satisfies hunger and gives us fuel and energy to get out there and live life to the fullest. Yet, this seemingly simple activity has become all consuming, guilt stirring, and mindless due to our culture, which is obsessed with diet and the abundance of food in today’s society. Mindful eating is designed to redress this balance. Although it is an old practice, its applications in the modern world are widely recognized in terms of solving various struggles with food.
Let’s be clear though, mindful eating is not another diet or weight loss program, nor does it involve any products, pills, recipes, or meal plans. Instead, it is all about being more aware of the eating habits that you have developed and the sensations that you are feeling while eating. It also involves recognizing the emotional attachment that you have to food. Mindful eating focuses on these two things what types of food you eat and how you eat them. After reading this book, you will finally be able to feel like you are eating in order to live a healthier and more satisfying life, instead of eating out of anxiety, boredom, stress, or habit. A beautiful little book to get you on the right track to eating mindfully.
