Mindful Eating is a most wonderful book for anyone and everyone. It is especially helpful in our fast-paced world. The exercises are easy to follow but tremendous in consequence. Terrific real advice and guidance for those of us with eating disorders, a true blessing!

Having attended many mindful eating retreats with Chozen, and seeing this book hot off the press I am very excited about it. Chozen's clarity and depth of practice are clearly demonstrated in her writing. I think this book has the power to make real changes in the relationships people have with food.

Bon Appetit

"Publishers Weekly Review" by , "Persuasively arguing that Americans have become obsessed with the constant pursuit of satiation, often to the detriment of their health, pediatrician and Zen teacher Bays calmly and systematically explains how a thoughtful approach to eating and drinking can positively affect one's weight and overall health. Through a series of guided exercises and meditations (and an accompanying CD), Bays encourages readers to examine their eating habits and relationships with food. Bays blames the 'Seven Hungers'-of eye ('boy those donuts look good'), mind ('I really should eat more grapefruit') heart ('this apple pie reminds me of my grandmother') and so on-for shaping our unhealthy and/or irrational eating patters; our inner perfectionists, critics and pushers only add to the cacophony, and Bays gives readers tools for silencing these discouraging voices. Bolstered by third-party research and a wealth of anecdotes, Bays's case for introspection over ice cream binges should connect with many. Though she doesn't promise instant results, Bays offers readers a guide to lifelong health through a measured attitude toward food; hers may well be the healthiest, most sane diet book to hit shelves in a while." Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
"Synopsis" by , Practiced for centuries in the Zen tradition, mindful eating is an approach that involves bringing one's full attention to the process of eating--becoming fully present to the tastes, smells, thoughts, and feelings that arise during a meal. Dr. Bays offers a wonderfully clear presentation of what mindfulness is and how it can help to create a healthier relationship with food.
"Synopsis" by , The art of mindfulness can transform our struggles with food—and renew our sense of pleasure, appreciation, and satisfaction with eating. Drawing on recent research and integrating her experiences as a physician and meditation teacher, Dr. Jan Bays offers a wonderfully clear presentation of what mindfulness is and how it can help with food issues.

Mindful eating is an approach that involves bringing one's full attention to the process of eating—to all the tastes, smells, thoughts, and feelings that arise during a meal. Whether you are overweight, suffer from an eating disorder, or just want to get more out of life, this book offers a simple tool that can make a remarkable difference.

In this book, you'll learn how to:

   • Tune into your body's own wisdom about what, when, and how much to eat

   • Eat less while feeling fully satisfied

   • Identify your habits and patterns with food

   • Develop a more compassionate attitude toward your struggles with eating

   • Discover what you're really hungry for

Mindful Eating also includes a 75-minute audio CD containing guided exercises led by the author.
