Eat, Drink, and Be Mindful: How to End Your Struggle with Mindless Eating and Start Savoringfood with Intention and Joy
Synopses & Reviews
Eat, Drink, and Be Mindful is a new tool for dealing with the age-old problem of mindless overeating. The author currently uses this workbook with clients in her Mindful Eating Support Groups. The book is a collection of more than seventy worksheets she has created. The workbook is organized around the seven skills of mindful-eater-awareness: observing, being in-the-moment, acceptance, letting go, non-judgment, and mindfulness of the environment. Each worksheet is one to two pages. This concise, easy-to-use guide is great for introducing people to mindful eating. More advanced mindful eaters love the journal format. It is also a helpful tool for therapists to use with their clients.
Fans of Eating Mindfully, yo-yo dieters, dietitians, therapists, and doctors would be primary and secondary markets for this book. The workbook combines the ancient wisdom of mindfulness meditation techniques with cognitive behavior skills and cutting edge approaches to implementing and sustaining lasting change. In her first book, Albers, a psychologist and mindful eating expert, reveals how overeating or chaotic eating can be improved with mindful eating techniques.
"Psychologist and author Albers expands on themes introduced in Eating Mindfully with this workbook for devotees of her conscientious approach to health and weight loss. Her philosophy involves becoming aware of eating patterns and the emotions one associates with food, encouraging readers to discover the how and why of their everyday diet in order to gain greater self-control. Arguing that the mind and the mouth are equally important to consumption, Albers encourages readers to set goals, keep diaries and pay attention to what they eat in detail with a variety of tables and exercises: meditating on a piece of chocolate; describing what tastes draw you; focusing on the here and now. Though Albers's quasi-Buddhist approach could prove revelatory for those mired in mindless eating, but those who feel they already have a firm grasp of how and why they eat will likely find the book repetitive and occasionally condescending; Albers can find only so many ways to illustrate that old chestnut, 'you are what you eat.'"
