Format: Paperback
A great book, in my humble opinion. And quite unique in the literature of mindful eating.

I don't particularly share the author's spiritual orientation (kind of Hindu/Taoist) but he really hits the nail on the head in many ways. It's really about developing a relaxed mindfulness towards sensual pleasure in general, of which the pleasure of eating is very typical. So it's about actually learning to listen to what your body needs and what YOU will enjoy but at the same time being alive to the many unacknowledged needs or expectations which we mistakenly expect food to fulfill. The author shows how we seek a balm for our loneliness, boredom and confusion, which leads time and again to the cookie jar or the fridge door!

A very helpful book for anyone who is at that point in life where they are prepared seriously to reflect on their habits and find a path forward which actually works!

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.

This is good, but as a practical health/weight loss manual I highly recommend his later work Transformational Weight Loss instead.

This book is more abstract and very interesting to read but not as practical as the other work.

I read this book in one day, while at home sick with a stomach bug ... go figure! I found the whole book interesting and while a lot of it should be common sense sadly it isn't. I was looking for a balanced look at eating, diets and food related topics and I feel that this book really has a lot going for it. I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking to improve their eating habits but not through any regime, this isn't the diet you have always been looking for. Quite the opposite it is a way of eating that should help you relax around food while keeping a few very helpful guide lines in mind. I think since reading this book I have been a lot happier eater and been eating more mindfully, and personally that is more than enough help for me.

A book written with a lot of sincerity and love. His holistic approach to food is very enlightening something that everyone should read. I found the chapter on the natural breath really profound as had never considered the link between fast eating and fast breathing. If we can release the natural breath of its constraints we can begin to enjoy food life slowly savouring every minute.

If you know about buddhism and mindful eating. This is basically a book about being mindful. The problem is that it repeats it's self over and over. Has a weird first few chapters and does not compare to buddhist interpretations.
