“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
“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!” —James Baraz, coauthor of Awakening Joy, and cofounding teacher at Spirit Rock Meditation Center in Woodacre, CA
“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 Solution will have you savoring each bite, appreciating your body, and leaving each meal feeling satisfied. Why beat up on yourself and continue to eat on autopilot? This excellent book gives you a clear road map for getting off the diet merry-go-round and building a healthy relationship to food!” — Donald Altman, MA, LPC, author of The Mindfulness Toolbox, Clearing Emotional Clutter, and 12-Weeks to Mindful Eating
“Reading this book is like talking to a wise and warmhearted friend — a friend who has the knowledge and experience to help you reclaim the natural pleasure and daily satisfaction that is inherent in eating. As an added bonus, it’s filled with helpful exercises and tips based on scientific studies, including the author’s own research.” — Jan Chozen Bays, MD, author of Mindful Eating
