Common sense tells us that to lose weight, we must eat less and exercise more. But somehow we get stalled. We start on a weight loss program with good intentions but we cannot stay on track. Neither the countless numbers of fad diets, nor the annual spending of $50 billion on weight loss efforts are helping us feel better or lose weight. With Mindful Eating, world-renowned Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh and Harvard nutritionist Dr. Lilian Cheung join together to show us how to end our struggles with weight once and for all.
Losing weight and maintaining a healthy body is not simply a matter of exercising more and eating less. It is the awareness of the present moment, the realisation of why we do what we do, that enables us to stop feeling bad and start changing our behaviour.

Mindful Eating, Mindful Life teaches us how to easily adopt the practice of mindfulness and integrate it into eating, exercise and all facets of our daily life, so that being conscious and present becomes a core part of our being. Mindful Eating, Mindful Life not only helps us achieve the healthy weight and well-being we seek, but it also brings to the surface the rich abundance of life available to us in every moment.
