Now that I’m into reading the “You on a Diet” book, I’ve launched into a full online exploration of alternative approaches to healthy eating and weight management. I remembered seeing something about mindful eating that I intended to go back to one day. A web search led me to a number of interesting resources that are in line with my thoughts on dieting. For instance, I found this article “Women who accept their bodies more likely to eat healthy” which says:
“Women who accept their bodies the way they are seem to be more likely to follow principles of healthy eating, new research shows… There’s this belief that if you give people unconditional permission to eat, they are going to binge and add on a lot of pounds. But that’s not what we have found…”
Some additional interesting links I found are:
Eat, Drink & Be Mindful
with books Mindful Eating 101 and Eating Mindfully by Dr. Susan Albers
BodyPositive looks at ways we can feel good in the bodies we have.
Mindful Living Programs
Stress reduction and mindful eating including online classes and retreats.
I’ve seen this funny little device before. I still don’t know what to make of it. Here’s a funny article reviewing it.
