Wow! We Really Need This
Wednesday, October 1, 2008
We don't know about you but we have a love-hate relationship with food. We love to eat it (especially if it's a piece of dark chocolate cake and a large cup of coffee with two shots of hazelnut), but once we finish eating, we hate we ever let the fork touch our lips. The back and forth, the ebb and flow of fighting food is exhausting. It's even more of an annoyance when American life is rife with bad, fattening, largely irresistible food choices, from cheeseburgers to specialty breads. Lord, take us now!
But, there is hope...maybe. There is a fascinating new book that we must read and absorb. It's called Eating the Moment: 141 Mindful Practices to Overcome Overeating One Meal at a Time. Isn't the cover lovely? Doesn't it make you feel like you can eat an apple and be satisfied? That's what we're thinking, too.
The publisher says: Eating the Moment offers 141 mindfulness activities to help you listen to your body, understand why you're eating, and control your cravings if you're eating out of habit or because of your emotions. You won't find any start dates, dieting tips, or meal plans in this book, just practical and meaningful exercises to help you end mindless eating and begin nourishing yourself in healthy and fulfilling ways. Buy Eating the Moment: 141 Mindful Practices to Overcome Overeating One Meal at a Time.
Anything to stop the cycle!
