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