    I love this subject, I have to remind myself to do this because I have found when I focus and concentrate on my food I eat less! We’re so used to just shoving food into our faces without even acknowledging it. I’m definitely going to check this book out, I especially like the point about honoring our food. My significant other is the type of person who will eat something because it’s there in front of him, whether it’s good or not, or whether he’s hungry or not. Drives me nuts.

    Thanks for the recommendation!

      Great comment. I agree, so many times we just eat because food is in front of us!

    I read this book a couple years ago and really liked it (other than moving to a veggie diet 😉 )

    The biggest thing I took away from it was the habit energy and how you can refocus that energy to help break habits.

      Yeah I skimmed the vegetarian part too…. 🙂

    Excellent article and interesting points on the hungry ghosts and mindful eating. I too had several hungry ghosts and still have a few lurking that I have to keep in control. I had a similar experience with pizza at a late night work meeting. It was overcooked, so why waste calories on something I wasn’t enjoying? I know in the past, I have been guilty of eating foods that were not enjoyable for my senses. I would eat just out of boredom or because it was “time” to eat not because my body said it was hungry.

      It’s definitely a challenge re-learning how to eat when HUNGRY and not according to a clock.

    Thank you Lisa, for posting such an informative review and personal statement about mindful eating. It speaks to me, but it also makes me feel in touch with so many people I see personally everyday who struggle with food. I am going to purchase this one – thanks!
