Product Description

Product Description

Are you a prisoner of gaining and losing weight only to become heavier...are your thoughts preoccupied with food issues, guilt, wishing things were different...have you lost hope in becoming healthy and staying healthy...do you believe you will be happier at a lower weight or a smaller dress size?

If you're like most women, you spend your days juggling many roles, conflicting commitments and the wants and needs of others. Often you come last, if there's time. The temptation to reach for food as comfort or distraction can be overwhelming, although the issue is rarely about true hunger. More times than not, the underlying force is emotion. Eating emotionally can become a way of life.

Following two decades of research and practical experience, disordered eating expert Lorrie Jones developed the 21 Days of Eating Mindfully program, designed to encourage and support you in changing unwanted and unhealthy eating habits by transforming your relationship with yourself. This 21 day journey is not a diet or overnight cure. Rather, it's an opportunity to inquire more deeply within, providing the keys to establishing a healthy, loving relationship with yourself and enjoying a favorable weight shift and wise eating choices as a natural result and sustainable outcome. With mindful awareness it's possible to let go of the belief that eating or not eating will take away hurt, disappointment, loneliness-boredom, anger, emptiness. With mindful awareness you'll learn skills and tools necessary to use food for only nourishment and healthy enjoyment.

If you're ready to give up believing there's something wrong with you-something that will change when you have a different body-then you're ready for Eating Mindfully and embracing the present moment, ending your dysfunctional relationship with food. For 21 days you will be provided with mindful eating guidelines to put into practice in your daily life. There are three days of "food for thought", related mindfulness activities and points to ponder for each of the letters in "HEALING".

H: Hunger & Healing
E: Empathy & Emotional Eating
A: Awareness & Acceptance
L: Love & Letting Be
I: Inquiry & Intention
N: Nurture & Nourishment
G: Gratitude & Gracious Living

Also included is a list of Recommended Reading plus exclusive access to 21 days of bonus videos, audios and PDFs to support you on your journey.

You have the potential and opportunity to forever change the way you respond to life experiences and embrace your health and wellness. Why not start honoring yourself today by embracing true and lasting change that comes from self acceptance, compassion and purpose, not discipline or dieting!

4.0 out of 5 stars 21Days Eating Mindfully- May 16 2012
By Marie Donaldson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
With dramatic effect; you must give Lorrie rapturous applause and the golden egg for this book. I think its best quality is the length. Isn't it true that we who have fallen in compulsiveness need the repair of taking smaller bites, smaller steps, and deeper breaths? Exercise her work; more than once if you need, with measured steps, and be graceful with yourself. Think well of yourself as Lorrie has done so in giving us this piece. -Marie

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Read for anyone struggling with food and body issues Oct. 17 2011
By A. Fisher - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This a beautiful, compassionate and extremely helpful book. Although it's written for women, I think so much of it can be used by men as well. Lorrie leads the reader through a series of gentle and easy to follow day-by-day steps. Firstly, she explores the day's topic, such as Hunger & Healing, Empathy & Emotional Eating, Awareness & Acceptance, Love & Letting Be, Inquiry & Intention, Nurture & Nourishment, and Gratitude & Gracious Living. Next, she offers a Mindfulness Activity, which includes many thoughtful and investigative questions regarding one's beliefs about food, body, self-worth and the stories we tell ourselves, to name a few. Then, she encourages the reader to take a bit of time and write down responses to the day's Mindfulness Activity, often providing wonderfully evocative questions to spur one's writing along such as " Am I hungry for nourishment or for something deeper?" Or, "What challenges can you name that contain the gift of joy?" The videos and handouts provide additional support and resources on the path to becoming more aware in the present moment around issues with food and body.

I love this book. More than ever before, I'm able to recognize feelings as they emerge, stay with that awareness and allow myself to make different choices. This, to me, is freedom.

I highly recommend this to anyone who wants to change their relationship to food, but more importantly, I highly recommend this book to those who want to change their relationship to themselves.

5.0 out of 5 stars easy to read, very helpful and hard to put in place Sept. 7 2012
By Chami Gaby Pierre - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've read this book very easily. so easily that I've already offered it to different friends who have overweight problems.like me. If you are suffering from binge eating or overwieght, this book is for you. great to read. hard to follow. It takes time to put all the appropriate things you find in this book in practice. needs self-love and involvment on a daily basis.
A great book anyway.
