(3.5 stars) This book applies the concept of mindfulness to eating. The author discusses the nine types of hunger, approaches to slow down and appreciate food, and provides a multitude of exercises to work through to help change your approach to eating. There is an available audio download to aid in performing the exercises. I learned some new techniques and after reading the whole book, I am going back through to work through all of the exercises. While not every technique will work for each person, I think everyone can learn from this book and hopefully gain a better appreciation for food and how to feed the various forms of hunger.

Though at times I felt like this was oversimplified, it is the only book I have read on eating that addresses the cultural impacts in such a compassionate way. Granted, I sometimes felt that Bays fell into absolutisms and the juxtaposition of the research with the mindfulness threw me off at times, but overall, I took a lot away from this and have started implementing things she suggests slowly and sustainably.

I found out about this book on the Early Reviewer list and knew I had to have it. Unfortunately I wasn't selected to receive an advanced copy, but I was able to get it from my library upon its release. This book is very well written and comes to me at the exact right moment in my life when my past 4 years of changing my life and body from the outside (losing over 60 pounds) meets my new challenge of changing my life and body from the inside through self exploration and meditation. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is ready to come to peace with the diet/binge merry-go-round and truly understand what it is that they are hungry for. The accompanying CD makes the exercises/mediations much easier and accessible the author has thought of everything to make anyone successful if they are simply ready to take the first step in their journey.
