This review is from: Yoga of Eating: Transending Diets & Dogma to Nourish the Natural Self (Paperback)
Use of the word 'Yoga' in the title of this book may attract those who see yoga as a purely physical practice and are looking for a way to lose weight. They will be disappointed because this is not a diet book. For those familiar with the concepts of mindfulness and awareness it will make a lot of sense.
Eisenstein examines our relationship with food and explains how eating mindfully,cultivating better awareness of our bodies needs, can lead to a healthier diet. If you learn to listen to it, your body will tell you when you are really hungry and whether you should eat that piece of cake. What you do eat should nourish you and leave you guilt free.
Every morning I sit at my computer with a coffee and a biscuit. Some mornings I would reach for the biscuit only to find I'd already eaten it. After reading this book, I now either stop and enjoy the biscuit or don't eat it at all. By paying attention to food at mealtimes, I've noticed how bland some food is and I've started to cook with more herbs and spices. When food tastes great it seems much more statisfying and I find myself eating less. So now I can eat what I like when I like and I have lost a little weight.
