REVIEW: “Mindful Eating” by Jan Chozen Bays

mindfuleating_bays1Those who know me know that I love anything to do with the “intuitive eating” method. This book was all about that, even though it calls it by its other name, “mindful eating“.

This book is based on a lot of Buddhist principles and practices, as the author lives in a monastery and practices Buddhism. But, a lot of it is really just common sense based off of how our bodies were made to function. It talks about slowing down while eating, not eating amidst distractions, waiting until you’re hungry before eating, and stopping BEFORE you’re “full”. All good things!

Recommended. 🙂

  1. I read a book that talks about similar eating habits. It was called the slowdown diet. I try to eat “mindfully”. I have always been a slow eater, partly because hate cold/lukewarm food.

  2. I am always on the go so this concept is really hard for me to digest (pun intended). I have been trying really hard to do this but I have too much going on, all the time!
