Review

'Not really a diet book, more a menu for eating your way through life (and yes, it does include chocolate)'. (Mail on Sunday)

'The expert's expert - Britain's top meditation guru' (The Times)

'Andy Puddicombe is doing for meditation what Jamie Oliver has done for food' (New York Times)

'THE HEADSPACE DIET takes a fresh look at how we've learned to eat'. (Press Association)

One of the reasons it's so attractive is that it does not promise miracle weight loss.. It's as if I've been waiting for The Headspace Diet to come along. I did feel more in control around food than I had in months. But then, that afternoon, to my immense surprise I heard a voice in my own head. It said: "You are hungry. You probably need to eat a piece of fruit before you get really hungry and start looking for biscuits". I ate a banana. It doesn't sound like a big deal. But it was the most mindful banana I have ever eaten. It tasted good. (Viv Groskop, Red)

The Headspace Diet from meditation guru Andy Puddicombe, guides you into a clam space using clear, engaging prose that will help you manage your relationship with food in a mindful, relaxed way. (aMuse)

I really enjoyed this book! I took it on holiday and finished it in a couple of days. It really delves in to what drives different types of eaters and what actions they are prone to. Even though I am familiar with mindfulness already, I found reading this book really helped cement my understanding of how mindfulness can address food habits. I am happy to say that not only am I already eating better after 2 weeks, I am feeling fantastic and the weight I've already lost hasn't been a struggle - I want to eat better and so I do!

I'd give the book 5 stars if it had more of a tie in with the Headspace app, but overall the book on it's own is still great. I've lent it to my mother already and she likes it too. Thanks Andy!

This is a must-have book for anyone who struggles with their relationship with food. Rather than focusing on what we should or shouldn't eat, Andy Puddicombe encourages us to think about HOW we eat, and WHY we do so. The book suggests that most of us know what is healthy and what isn't but yet - despite this knowledge - we still eat in ways that make us unhappy and unhealthy. By learning to slow down, pause and become more aware of our physical and emotional reaction to food, we can gradually change these behaviours so that we eat in the way that we want to; in a way that we enjoy. Drawing on nutritional science, psychology and his own personal experiences, the author makes a pretty compelling case for a mindful approach to eating.

The book is very different to most diet books - it does not advocate any sort of 'quick-fix' (which of course is ultimately why this approach will actually work in the long-term). People who just want more rules and regulations about what types of carrots and rye crackers to eat will be disappointed. But that is also the joy of Puddicombe's approach - rather than approaching weight-loss from a place of anger, self-denial and guilt, a mindful approach to eating is about becoming a healthier and HAPPIER eater. If this sounds appetising to you, this book is a great place to start.

If you're looking for a book that has step by step breakdowns of the calorific content of food, or a detailed plan of what you can eat and when, then look elsewhere. I've pretty much tried all of those kind of books already, and the fact I'm still looking for a 'plan' that actually works proves the need for something different on the market.

And I genuinely think this could be it! I'm realising that the reason other 'diets' haven't worked for me is that I have been following someone else's rules about what I should or should not eat rather than really addressing my own relationship with food and the impact it has on my life. This book has really made me aware of the 'scripts' I've been following when it comes to food- when I'm stressed i 'deserve' a chocolate, when I'm out with friends and they want dessert 'so do I', a glass of wine 'will help me relax' (etc). This book has helped me readdress some of the reasons I turn to food and is helping me to be much more aware of my motivations. I'm finding it easier to listen to my own body and needs rather than just eating unconsciously or be swayed by what other diet books or people tell me. I'm not feeling deprived in any way- instead, when i do have a chocolate or glass of wine I really fully appreciate it and are therefore more satisfied by it, rather than before when it seemed only the whole packet or bottle would do! I've already lost weight just by being more self-aware of what I am eating and why and when- and it's down to reading this book.

If you're looking to understand your relationship with food and learn techniques that enable you to become clearer, happier and probably lighter (!)in all aspects of your life then you should get this book.

This book provides some great insight into a variety of reasons people get out of control with food (very few of which have anything to do with being hungry!). The method generates similar results to Paul McKenna's I can make you thin, but what it does really well is help you explore why you do what you do with food, rather than just focussing on what you should do to change it. The Take 10 meditations - free online and on app - are excellent. It made a difference from day one. Now I'm really enjoying my food again and eating a hell of a lot less of it! Imagine being completely in control of your eating. That's the possibility this method offers. So why would you not try it?

This book makes you look at the way you eat, in a different way. I like the 10 minute exercise and use it regularly. I have put tabs on different pages and refer back to them.

It makes interesting reading and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to get their eating back under control.

Remarkably lacking in substance, though not a completely unrewarding read. The book largely consists of about 130+ pages of build-up on the theories about why people don't lose weight, why people give up on diets, why people eat differently, etc. It reinforces, time and again, the idea of mindfulness and the support offered if you visit the website associated with the book. Time and time again.

In the end, you reach the chapter about the actual technique only to find a ten bullet point process of mild meditation. Sit for ten minutes, breathe deeply, be aware of all the bits of yourself, concentrate on the breathing - and then repeat daily. Effectively mindfulness seems to mean concentrate on something and take your time over it.

Mindful shopping, concentreate on your footsteps or your breathing and when you feel the urge to splurge, refocus on your footsteps, breathing, the trolley... whatever you chose to anchor you. Mindful food preparation means taking your time, breathing in the smoke, manhandling the vegetables and generally getting to know your meal on a very personal basis.

Somewhere along the journey, the author lost the point. Or lost me. Or both. All the build-up to the take10 technique and I find a somewhat sterile explanation of a bland meditation technique. I did read the rest of the book, but I felt let down. The shallow delivery of the process of mindfulness left me wondering just who might benefit from this book and take the concept on with any prospect of benefit. How could you walk away from this book with anything more than a sense that you hadn't learnt anything at all - other than a more mindful approach to choosing your reading material in future!
