This book presents an approach to your relationship to food that follows a path of self-trust and self-exploration. It is “yoga” in the sense that it illumines a practice that brings you into greater wholeness or unity. It does not tell you what to eat and what not to eat; it is not a book about nutrition. As you read you will learn how to distinguish superficial cravings from authentic appetites, so that your body gains the nourishment it needs; how to bring your diet into alignment with who you are, and who you wish to be; how to choose foods that come closest to meeting your unique needs; how to transform the delight and pleasure of eating into an ally in the quest for health; and how to build trust in your natural body and natural self.
The Yoga of Eating offers original insights on the physical and spiritual functions of sugar, fat, meat, and other foods; fasting, dieting, processing, willpower, and the deeper principles of self-nurture. Dispensing with conventional doctrine, this book appeals to a higher authority — your own body — and shows how to access and trust the wisdom your body has to offer.
