The Book

Image and Text

What are you really hungry for? Is it food, happiness, or something else? In this unique book, mindfulness expert Dr. Lynn Rossy offers a proven-effective, whole-body approach to help you discover the real reasons why you’re overeating.

The practices in this book will help you slow down, savor each bite, and actually eat less. This unique approach will develop your ability to adopt healthy eating habits by showing you how to listen to your body’s wisdom, uncover the psychological cause of your overeating, and be more mindful during mealtime.

If you find yourself eating without thinking, because you feel bored or sad, or simply because you’ve had a hard day, indulging here and there is understandable. But emotional eating can often spiral out of control, leading to obesity, diabetes, and heart problems. By following the guidance in this book, you can learn how to listen to your body, heart and mind—guiding you towards health and happiness in all aspects of your life and without giving up your love for food. In fact, according to a recent study, women in the author’s Eat for Life program reported greater mindfulness, higher levels of body appreciation and intuitive eating, and lower levels of problematic eating behaviors than the wait list comparison group.

If you want to truly enjoy your food, respect your body, and savor your life, the easy-to-use strategies in this book will show you how—one mindful taste at a time.

What Others Are Saying About My Book

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
