Worth the read

I found the book well written, easy to read and understand the content. It provided helpful information concerning why/how we make choices about food and how we approach eating in general.


This book was very helpful and actually changed my life in a way that no other book has! I recommend it to anyone who is an emotional eater!

I saw this book in O Oprah Magazine

What a wonderful, compassionate and helpful guide! I've run across this book in several places but I finally broke down and bought it when I saw it in Oprah Magazine. I'm glad I did. It was different than the other diet books I've bought. It was insightful, easy to read and positive. It helped me to understand why I mindlessly eat and gave a lot of helpful hints for eating in a more mindful, relaxed way. If you want a sample of what is inside this book before you buy it, check out Dr. Albers' website. It was a helpful resource for me and would be for anyone with eating issues.

This book provides a healthy guide.

Eating Mindfully provides an excellent guide to people who are serious about learning about themselves and their relationship with food. This book does not promote diets; instead it focuses on true self-awareness. The book explains that through self-awareness one can understand how and why he/she has certain eating behaviors. Buddhism stresses the importance of awareness, and Dr. Albers utilizes some of the most useful facets of Buddhism to help her organize an effective guide.Dr. Albers explains that if you understand yourself and why you eat the way you do, a balance will be reached and a healthy relationship with food will result. Anyone can lose weight through dieting, but to become the person you want to be and stay that way, a permanent change in behavior is required -- anyone who is honest with himself/herself knows that. Dr. Albers provides a guide to anyone who wants to and has the determination to make this change in his/her life.After reading the book, I found myself more aware of my eating patterns. In several instances it helped me to not stuff myself silly, which I tend to do on occasion. I would highly recommend this book.
