THE MINDFUL EATING WORKBOOK: A GUIDE TO ACHIEVING AND MAINTAINING A HEALTHY WEIGHT
"Elaine Shea's book demonstrates many helpful suggestions for achieving and maintaining a healthy balance to our food and weight relationships. But none is a simple as the point,..."it requires only one mindful moment to decide to do something other than to continue eating."

"The workbook contains a wealth of information. It has helped me understand the reasons why I choose certain foods and the times I choose to eat them. For example, in the middle of the day, I would often find myself wanting to go pick up a couple of peanut butter cups (yes, a couple not just one!).

"The Mindful Eating Workbook puts into words what most of us know we need to do for our health. But when we see our thoughts and notions about healthy eating in the printed word, well organized, guiding you to your goal, it becomes more clear and therefore easier to make the connection to be inspired to eat healthier, move your body and feel better about yourself and the world."
