You Can Change Your Relationship to Food

Eating with Fierce Kindness is not a diet, but a way to revolutionize how you think about yourself and about food. Eating with fierce kindness and compassion toward yourself, instead of shame and self-blame, will empower you to change your relationship to food and see yourself in a whole new light.

This book will guide you toward an understanding of why and how you are eating so you can successfully change your eating patterns. As you learn to reduce the stress and impulsivity that often drives emotional eating, you'll also practice new ways to savor food and finally nourish your body the way it deserves.

User Review  - Carol - Goodreads

I must admit that I didn't finish this one. If you want a book that uses meditation to help you lose weight, this is your ticket. I am not wanting to spend that much time or that venue at this time, maybe I should have a more open mind.... it might actually work, who knows. Read full review
