A world-renowned Buddhist leader and best-selling author of Peace Is Every Step and a Harvard nutrionist offer cutting-edge science and deep Buddhist wisdom on the subject of eating with one's health and the welfare of the planet in mind. Reprint. 30,000 first printing.
People trying to lose weight or improve their health can choose from any number of different diet plans, but renowned Buddhist monk Thich Nhat Hanh and Harvard nutritionist Dr. Lilian Cheung show that simply changing your eating habits on the surface is an ineffective way to achieve better nutrition. Hanh and Cheung present a detailed plan for using the principles of mindfulness to break the cycle of anxiety associated with dieting and become more aware of the present moment, when true change is really possible. Along with an extensive nutrition guide analyzing the health value of a wide variety of foods, they provide a practical method for setting personal goals and an overall plan for mindful living which will help you identify and transform the root of your eating choices and patterns as part of a healthier, more conscious way of life.
