Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

“Jan Chozen Bays should be recruited by the slow food movement.  My favorite mindfulness book from the past year.”—Barry Boyce in Shambhala Sun


"If you give yourself over wholeheartedly to the practices described here, you will be thanking yourself and Dr. Bays for recovering your life and for enjoying the blessings of food in ways that feel liberated and delightful."—from the foreword by Jon Kabat-Zinn

Présentation de l'éditeur

The art of mindfulness can transform our struggles with food—and renew our sense of pleasure, appreciation, and satisfaction with eating. Drawing on recent research and integrating her experiences as a physician and meditation teacher, Dr. Jan Bays offers a wonderfully clear presentation of what mindfulness is and how it can help with food issues.


Mindful eating is an approach that involves bringing one's full attention to the process of eating—to all the tastes, smells, thoughts, and feelings that arise during a meal. Whether you are overweight, suffer from an eating disorder, or just want to get more out of life, this book offers a simple tool that can make a remarkable difference.


In this book, you'll learn how to:



  • Tune into your body's own wisdom about what, when, and how much to eat

  • Eat less while feeling fully satisfied

  • Identify your habits and patterns with food

  • Develop a more compassionate attitude toward your struggles with eating

  • Discover what you're really hungry for



Mindful Eating also includes a 75-minute audio program containing guided exercises led by the author.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Très bon livre 7 mai 2012

Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Une vision originale et très pédagogique de notre rapport à la nourriture.
C'est en fait la pleine conscience appliquée à l'alimentation.
Dommage qu'il n'y ait pas, comme dans la version anglaise, le CD d'exercice.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 amazing find 15 février 2009
Par J. Lin - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I came upon this book accidentally in the new cook book section at the Carnegie library. I took a glance and the contents seemed interesting. So on my driving home, I listened to the guided mindfulness exercises CD that came with the book. This was not what I expected--my way home felt like a transformed journey to self discovery: the exercisers were simple, practical; the voice soothing; the effect, however, was profound. I was intrigued by how was it possible that our body would know the foods that we need at a particular point in time? I eagerly plunged into the book and read all about the seven kinds of hungers. I was very pleased for the insight I gained from the reading. This book inspires. The writing is lucid and thoughtful.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent Exposition of Mindfulness in Eating 18 avril 2009
Par Sheryl Canter - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
This book does an excellent job of exploring all aspects of mindfulness in eating. The book's weakness, and the reason I gave it four stars instead of five, is that mindfulness is not the whole answer to emotional or compulsive eating. It's necessary, but not sufficient. In the recovery method I teach, Normal Eating, mindfulness corresponds to Stage 2, "Reconnecting". But then there are two more stages after that. Dr. Bays even gives examples of people who continue to eat emotionally or compulsively despite awareness of the triggers. That's because awareness isn't enough - there's more work to be done.

I don't think Dr. Bays understands the addictive aspect of compulsive eating, as evidenced by the one wrong note the book struck on page 72 about "going unconscious". She says, "The point of mindful eating is not to forbid ourselves to ever use food in this way." I disagree. That's like saying the point of recovery from alcoholism isn't to forbid the alcoholic from ever taking another drink. Uh, actually, yes it is. Compulsive eaters can't eat addictively in moderation any more than alcoholics can drink in moderation.

"Going unconscious", as Dr. Bays calls it, is the essence of what it means to use food addictively, as she well knows because she discusses binge eating in this section. Not using food addictively has to be a "bottom line" if a compulsive eater is to recover - something you never do. I'm not saying people should never eat just for enjoyment. But eating for enjoyment is not the same as "going unconscious" or numbing out with food. I wrote about this at length in a recent newsletter, "Is Eating to Numb Out Ever Okay?":

[...]

Except for this one quibble, I liked "Mindful Eating" very much. Dr. Bays is a Zen teacher, but the book isn't weighed down with details of Buddhism. Her purpose is not to teach Buddhism, it's to teach mindful eating. And she does a superb job of it.

Most explanations of mindful eating encourage people to focus on the food's appearance, smell, and taste. Bays goes much further, encouraging mindfulness in all aspects of the eating experience, emotional and physical. She lists seven "hungers" - seven areas to survey in yourself as you are eating:

1. Eye (what the food looks like)
2. Nose (what it smells like)
3. Mouth (sensations in the mouth - feel, taste)
4. Stomach (sensations in the stomach - growling, fullness, emptiness)
5. Cellular (the body wisdom that gives you a yen for what you need nutritionally)
6. Mind (your thoughts on what you "should" be eating)
7. Heart (how soothing or comforting the food is to you)

This is an excellent summary of the experience of eating - clear, concise, and thorough. If you practice mindfulness in all these areas when you eat, you will fully reconnect with yourself, and this will put you on the path to recovery.

The author is a physician, so the book also is filled with interesting information about the experience of eating on a physiological level. These details don't come off as ponderous or dense because they're presented through interesting anecdotes from Dr. Bays' practice or personal experience.

"Mindful Eating" is readable, insightful, and full of interesting information. I highly recommend it, with the caveat that lack of mindfulness in eating is not the only reason for emotional or compulsive eating. To stop compulsive eating requires some further steps.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Simply Revolutionary 17 février 2011
Par David Bennett - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I have had a bad relationship with food. Whether it has been guilty overeating or anxiously counting calories, I have been "tethered" to food. Even though, through discipline, I am now fit and at a healthy weight, food runs my life. Most people would assume that with all my thoughts about food, and my excitement at mealtime, I would really enjoy eating, but I don't. I realized that most meals pass me by in a blur, as I quickly and tensely inhale as much food as possible, until my body is bloated and my mind foggy. After reading this book, I realized I haven't really enjoyed a meal since I was young.

Mindful Eating is a book about eating with full awareness. Being mindful means simply being aware of the moment, what is going on inside of us, and outside of us, without judgment or opinion. Chozen-Bays applies mindfulness to eating. Rather than battling or obsessing with food, the goal is to be fully aware of the process of eating, and actually enjoy it. She provides helpful tips to accomplish this. She identifies 7 types of hunger, including eye hunger, mouth hunger, and heart hunger. She gives tools to discern if we are really hungry, and where the hunger is coming from. It is possible that our stomachs are hungry, but often, we eat for emotional reasons (heart hunger), or out of habit (mind hunger), not because our bodies need food. She provides tools to satisfy each type of hunger. Sometimes it might be slowing down, giving the body time to recognize fullness. Other solutions might not even involve food. For example, food cannot satisfy heart hunger, so the solution to this hunger is to emotionally connect with someone. She also provides 6 general tips to eat mindfully, including eating more slowly. I faithfully took notes while I read the book, and couldn't wait to get to the next section. The book comes with a CD, which is helpful, but not necessarily required to practice mindful eating.

I think this is the answer to my struggle with food. I have been mindfully eating for a couple weeks and the results have been amazing. I actually enjoy food. My wife made some whole wheat pizza, and we decided to eat it mindfully, but with the TV on (against the book's advice). I began to enjoy the pizza mindfully, savoring the unique blend of texture and flavor in every bite. I tasted the smoked flavor of the mozzarella for the first time since childhood. The experience brought me back to a childhood pizza party. The experience of mindful eating was so great that I turned the TV off. I realized I wasn't even paying attention to it, and it struck me as a distraction. I also ate less, and realized that I was full more quickly than the last time I ate pizza. I am learning to drink mindfully too. I found that I was not enjoying coffee, and this saddened me, because coffee used to excite me. Fortunately, mindful eating has helped me enjoy every sip of coffee again. I also realized I hate diet soft drinks. Drinking a glass of Diet Coke mindfully made me realize how bitter and empty it is.

Overall, I highly recommend this book. It has put me on the path to having a better relationship with food. After "battling" food for 17 years, I have declared a truce. This does not mean there won't be struggles, and Chozen-Bays suggests that there are days when we have to eat quickly and poorly; she just reminds us that we should be aware we are doing it. She doesn't guarantee that mindful eating is an effective weight loss plan, and such a guarantee would miss the point. While I certainly believe that mindful eating will make staying at my ideal weight much easier, I am most excited that now every meal comes alive, and that I can enjoy each unique eating experience.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Return To Sanity 2 mars 2009
Par Mitchell R. Alegre - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
As a consequence of the American search for the perfect healthy diet, we have developed a love-hate relationship with food. Confusion reigns about what foods we are to eat and which we are to avoid. Our reliance on scientific evidence has simply added to the confusion. We can't even agree if we are naturally carnivore, omnivore, or herbivore.

"Mindful Eating," written by physician and Zen teacher Jan Chozen Bays, provides a way back to sane eating. Bays does not prescribe what we are to eat but provides gentle guidance about how to eat. This book provides numerous exercises to help us be present to ourselves and our food.

Bays teaches us to become aware of our seven forms of hunger--eye, nose, mouth, stomach, cellular, mind, and heart hungers. Each hunger satisfies legitimate needs. Bays instructs us with understanding and humor on how to recognize and satisfy each hunger. Her approach is a return to an intimate and joyful relationship with food. Stop dieting. Read this book and discover how to physically, mentally, and spiritually relate with food and return to sane eating.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A Very Worthwhile Read 16 mars 2009
Par L. Allin - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
This book is very well written and comes to me at the exact right moment in my life when my past 4 years of changing my life and body from the outside (losing over 60 pounds) meets my new challenge of changing my life and body from the inside through self exploration and meditation. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is ready to come to peace with the diet/binge merry-go-round and truly understand what it is that they are hungry for. The accompanying CD makes the exercises/mediations much easier and accessible the author has thought of everything to make anyone successful if they are simply ready to take the first step in their journey.
