The Zen of Eating: Ancient Answers to Modern Weight Problems Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When it comes to weight loss, the emphasis today is shifting away from fad diets and compulsive workouts toward sane, sensible techniques that incorporate both the mind and the body. This is the first book to apply the 2,500-year-old principles of Zen Buddhism to the modern struggle with the vicious cycle of dieting, losing, and regaining weight. From a Buddhist perspective, overeating is a disorder of desire. This book will teach readers how to find freedom from eating problems and the tyranny of desire that triggers them. Filled with concrete, practical exercises and the wisdom of the ages, The Zen of Eating provides, at last, an alternative to ineffective diet programs, products, and pills.

Synopsis:

From a psychologist and mediator comes the first book of its kind--an innovative approach to diet and weight loss management that taps into the time-tested, 2,500-year-old principles of Zen Buddhism.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 183-184) and index.
