Most books about nutrition and diet stress the calorie content of foods, saturated fats, trans fats, carbohydrates, portion size, and the balance between energy intake and energy expended.

This book is dierent. This book is not only about what to eat. This book also teaches how to eat. If you are someone who is concerned about your weight, perhaps you have tried dieting in the past. Maybe you have gone from cutting calories, to excluding fats, to avoiding “carbs,” to taking a chance on the grapefruit diet or some other fad.

Perhaps you have even lost weight—only to gain it right back within a few months. You know something is wrong and you feel not in control of your own body.

You are convinced that something has to change, but where do you begin?

The answer, provided in this book, is not to begin with what you put on your plate. Rather, you begin with what is already inside you, with your awareness and experience of every moment you live—what the authors call mindfulness.

While the concept of mindfulness derives from Buddhist teaching, anyone can become more mindful in nourishing our bodies. Many distractions in daily life reinforce the mindless ingestion of food, and mindless eating is a strong driver of weight gain and obesity.

With awareness and practice, it is possible to become more mindful in our eating—and in our lives. This book tells you how to do it. Authored by an eminent spiritual leader and a renowned nutritionist, this work infuses science into wisdom and wisdom into science.

It is a practical guide to eating mindfully and points the way to attain a healthier weight and a more satisfying life.
