What People Are Saying About My Books

A straightforward and commonsensical glide path into fine-tuning one of the most fundamental relationships in our lives, namely with food, for the sake of well-being, health, happiness, and social connection. This book will nourish and support you in multiple ways and, if you stick with its recommendations for practicing mindfulness, will give you more than a taste of who is eating in the first place, and why.


— Jon Kabat-Zinn , author of Mindfulness for Beginners

The Mindfulness-Based Eating Solution gives anyone who has struggled with food a realistic and achievable approach to finding peace with food and eating. While founded on solid science, Lynn Rossy offers a supportive, nurturing and real-life approach to inviting change while still enjoying the foods you love. The Mindfulness-Based Eating Solutionwill have you savoring each bite, appreciating your body, and leaving each meal feeling satisfied. Why beat up on yourself and continue to eat on auto-pilot? This excellent book gives you a clear roadmap for getting off the diet-merry-go-round and building a healthy relationship to food!


— Donald Altman , MA., LPC, author, The Mindfulness Toolbox, Clearing Emotional Clutter, and 12-Weeks to Mindful Eating

Lynn Rossy takes us on a most uplifting and exquisite journey. She shows us how by bringing more consciousness to our eating we can truly nourish ourselves and experience genuine well-being. She shows us how to have a healthy relationship with our bodies and minds, understand our habits while not being run by them, learn to listen to the wisdom right inside of us, and discover how to truly savor life. Clear, practical and engaging, The Mindfulness-Based Eating Solution makes the process of taking good care of ourselves inspiring and fun. A wonderful book!

“A beautiful and poetic guide to awakening our senses, inhabiting our bodies, and opening our hearts to the richness of life. I highly recommend!”


— Shauna Shapiro , PhD, author of Good Morning, I Love You

Reading this book is like talking to a wise and warm-hearted friend, a friend who had the knowledge and experience to help you reclaim the natural pleasure and daily satisfaction that is inherent in eating. As an added bonus, it is filled with helpful exercises and tips, based on scientific studies, including the author’s own research.


— Jan Chozen-Bays, MD, author of Mindful Eating

“Savor Every Bite hits all the right notes. Its goal is to teach readers not only how to recover from dysregulated eating but how to enjoy life more. Rossy does this by laying out a path to whole-body engagement using thoughts, feelings, and senses. Guiding the reader through a five-step process and simple, targeted practice exercises, this empowering book makes change seem less frightening and more doable.”

“This book takes a compassionate look at our lifetime relationship to food and eating. We find ways to identify the authentic need behind our cravings. Rossy gives us doable practices to bring a mindful pause to our food choices and a mindful attentiveness to our bodies, too. I was also impressed by how we can find the Dharma on a table or in a mirror.”


— David Richo , PhD, author of Triggers: How We Can Stop Reacting and Start Healing

“I love these bite-sized chapters and embodied practices. You can read all you like about mindfulness, but it won’t take root until you feel it in your body. Lynn Rossy’s Savor Every Bite helps you do just that with compassion, the benefits of her personal experience, and the backing of scientific data!”


— Jenna Hollenstein , MS, RDN, nutrition therapist, meditation teacher, and author of Eat to Love

“Savor Every Bite is a handbook to life that is taught one bite at a time. Its five-step approach to mindful eating is an essential guide to discover the present moment.

This much-needed Health at Every Size (HAES®) mindful eating book is filled with delicious bites of insight, compassion, and wisdom that you will savor reading.”

You’re a Breath Away from Better Health, Sleep, and Happiness

I always joke that I went to graduate school to get a Ph.D. so I could teach people to breathe. But, in fact, that is what I’ve done a lot of—from teaching breathing techniques in individual psychotherapy sessions to mindful eating programs and yoga sessions. My first experiences with the power of the breath were

Learning How to Savor, Not Count Calories

I was recently out with some friends that I haven’t seen in many years. They sort of know I teach mindful eating, but my guess is that they have not read much on the topic. When we started to order food, one friend said she wanted to order the fries and wanted to know who
