An Integrative Approach to Optimal Health, Mindful Eating, and Satisfaction
Health first, then weight. This is part of the liberating new approach to managing our patterns of eating developed by integrative medicine pioneer Dr. Andrew Weil and Dr. Carolyn Ross. The Joy of Eating Well presents their revolutionary program for transforming your relationship with food and fostering harmony in the mind and spirit through greater self-awareness and body acceptance.
This richly informative two-session course of practical teachings, actionable advice, and exercises explores:
Dr. Weil's insights about optimal nutrition, cultural influences on our eating patterns, and an integrative view of eating well—including his anti-inflammatory diet
The five levels of healing our relationship with food, from behaviors and emotions to core beliefs and the needs of the recognition of the soul
Dr. Ross' SIMPLE Plan: a five-point system for managing meals plus tips for making lifestyle changes that support your goals
Seven guided practices with Dr. Ross including Mindful Eating, The Awakened Body Process, and The Future Self Meditation
There is considerable misconception that says if food tastes good, it can't be good for you. With The Joy of Eating Well,, you now have a much-needed resource for honoring the body and spirit while moving toward your healthy weight.
