In the rush of everyday life, most people have difficulty finding ways to give their relationship with food the full attention it deserves. Demanding diets saddle you with guilt about your appetite, but overeating and mindless snacking prove ultimately unsatisfying as well. Mindful eating is a whole new way of looking at food. Instead of rushing through meals, mindful eating emphasizes slowing down and savoring what you eat.
Eat, Drink, and Be Mindful, by the author of Eating Mindfully, includes mindfulness tips, activities, and checklists to help you start a mindful eating program, evaluate your progress, and discover a healthier and richer relationship with food.
“This book could be a godsend for anyone suffering from lifelong issues around eating, weight, and appearance. It presents a sane and novel approach to finding a balanced relationship to food, eating, and your body through mindfulness. The book is written by someone with obvious depth of experience and savvy who is definitely on your side, whatever your difficulties or challenges. Eat, Drink, and Be Mindful may be just what the doctor ordered, or would have but couldn’t–until now.” –Jon Kabat-Zinn, Ph.D., author of Full Catastrophe Living, Arriving at Your Own Door, and Coming to Our Senses
4 Stars Great Workbook
This is a great follow up book to the author’s Eating Mindfully book. I highly recommend this book to anyone who has any sort of eating issue. I find myself using her techniques in other areas of my life as well.
5 Stars An Excellent Book If You Struggle With Eating Issues
As a psychologist, I would certainly recommend this book to clients who have eating difficulties (or therapists who work with them). The workbook has a non-judgmental friendly tone that makes it easy to read. Dr. Albers includes several good assessments/checklists that can be used to pinpoint how you are struggling with mindless eating. The rest of the book contains many well thought-out exercises and practical suggestions to target different aspects of eating issues. I think this book can help to change your relationship with food.
5 Stars What is Food METH? Food METH is NOT a MYTH!
***********What is Food METH ? —
Food METH is NOT a MYTH!
Fast food is so addictive, BECAUSE IT CONTAINS “HIDDEN MSG” (monosodium glutamate), the ‘METH’ of the Processed Food Industry!
for 25 plus Names used for “HIDDEN MSG.” You will never guess their names!
The “HIDDEN MSG” has clever names! The MSG is hiding right under the public’s noses. MSG (an ‘excitotoxin’) only purpose in food, is to make you eat more and more and more and….
‘Truthinlabeling.org’ lists the huge number of names for the “HIDDEN MSG,”
so you won’t be fooled any more !!!!
For example, Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein (HVP) is made by boiling junk vegetables in vats of sulfuric acid and then doused with caustic soda.
–Sounds like the making of METH!–
But HVP is “only one” of the new FOOD METHs. It was recently, recalled by the FDA for salmonella contamination.
“Citric acid”, made from “CORN and BLACK MOLD,” is another clever name.
Everyone thinks it is made from citrus. LOL
Try a few more names on for size: CARRAGEENAN, Natural Flavors, Spices, Malted Barley, Autolyzed Yeast, Enzyme Modified, etc….
“HIDDEN MSG” is in Baby formula, sauces, dips, garden burgers, chili, etc.
I lost 12 pounds immediately after I eliminated food with “HIDDEN MSG!”
And I ask you, “Would you knowingly consume MSG or feed it to your BABY?”
Most would answer, “Absolutely NOT!”
I hate to tell you, but you are eating it if you are eating FAST FOOD! or Processed Foods!
