|Combining sound dietary information with the techniques of the Nonviolent Communication (NVC) process, this booklet shifts the focus from simple weight loss to changing the ways readers relate to food and their food choices. Eating is a need, but for those caught in cycles of over-consumption and dieting, it's often a poor attempt to meet other needs, such as emotional fulfillment. When reconnected to actual needs, however, consumption habits turn into nutritional choices, signaling greater freedom. |
Find practical strategies to break out of unhealthy eating cycles by becoming aware of your needs. Rather than a proscriptive fad diet, readers learn to dig deeper to the emotional consciousness that underlies our eating patterns. Learn to enjoy the tastes, smells and sensations of healthful eating once again.
From the Publisher:
Combining sound dietary information with the techniques of Nonviolent Communication, this handbook for successful dieting shifts the focus to changing the ways readers see food and their food choices. Eating is a need, but for those caught in cycles of overconsumption and dieting, it can often be a stand-in for other unmet needs, like emotional fulfillment. When reconnected to actual nutritional needs, however, consumption habits turn into choices, signalling greater freedom. Practical strategies are outlined for breaking out of cycles of eating and becoming aware of one''s needs. Rather than being a proscriptive fad diet, the suggestions are interactive and encourage questioning and reflecting as one moves through the lessons. By learning to connect with food in ways previously not possible, readers who are seeking to slough off old patterns in favor of new options can again enjoy the tastes, smells, and sensations of good eating.
