Product Description

Review

Among Buddhist leaders influential in the West, Thich Nhat Hanh ranks second only to the Dalai Lama. (New York Times)

Thich Nhat Hanh shows us the connection between inner peace and peace on earth (His Holiness the Dalai Lama)

It's refreshing to discover a diet book that isn't all about losing weight, but instead encourages savouring our food and properly nourishing both body and mind. (Junior magazine 2011-06-01)

Thich Nhat Hanh writes with the voice of the Buddha. (Sogyal Rinpoche)

About the Author

Thich Nhat Hanh is a Vietnamese Buddhist monk. His lifelong efforts to generate peace and reconciliation moved Martin Luther King Jr. to nominate him for the Nobel Peace Prize in 1967. He is the author of many books, including the classic Peace is Every Step and The Art of Power. He lives in France and travels worldwide leading retreats on the art of mindful living.

Lilian Cheung D.Sc. RD is a lecturer and director of health promotion and communication at the Harvard School of Public Health's Department of Nutrition. Cheung has been a student of Thich Nhat Hanh since 1997.

A mash-up of current received wisdom on nutrition and a buddhist mindfulness-based approach - and it's generally very clear which of the authors has written a particular section, it's not integrated. The nutrition information is research-based, but includes results from very different kinds of research - large-scale epidemiological studies to small-scale lab-based behavioural or single-nutrient studies - without really differentiating between the validity and applicability of evidence from such different sources. (That's a pretty general problem in studying human diet, not just this book). The mindfulness approach, I like. I find TNH's exposition clear and inspiring, but I'm not sure how it would appear to someone who was not already familiar with mindfulness - I hope, useful and encouraging, even revelatory. My major problem with this book is that it seems very much concerned with obesity and dieting in a quite conventional, judgmental way - the opposite of a truly mindful approach. Mindful eating should surely be just as applicable to people with eating disorders, people using nutrition as part of dealing with disease and injury, or sports training, or people with no particular health issues who want to gain greater enjoyment from eating, or just use mindful eating as a path to the practice of mindfulness in everyday life. There is little if any appreciation of that here. Having said that, there is much that is useful in each of the authors' approaches, though personally I find the checklisty programmey bits less than helpful - the whole approach seems contradictory, in that mindful eating should teach you to trust your body and eat well without the (pseudo?)science.Read more ›

This is a book about developing a gentle way of living and a gentle way of losing weight . . . . and like all of Thich Nhat Hanh's books ... you always put them down feeling calm and reassured .... and ya don't have to be a Buddhist to reap the benefits! Fantsatic .... science and simplicity in a single volume!!!

If you are interested in or trying to incorporate Mindfulness into your life then this is a very interesting book. If you are looking for a 'diet' book then this is also useful. However if you are fed up of dieting and are trying to follow a more intuitive way of eating then perhaps only the Mindfulness in this book is useful. The author can be quite bossy about the eating bit!
