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. With Mindful Eating, world-renowned Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh and Harvard nutritionist Dr Lilian Cheung show us how to end our struggles with weight once and for all.

Offering practical tools, including personalised goal setting, a detailed nutrition guide, and a mindful living plan, the authors help us to uncover the roots of our habits and then guide us as we transform our actions. Mindful Eating 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 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.
