Through a series of revelatory exercises, along with simple instructions for time-proven mindfulness and meditation techniques, you’ll learn to identify prejudices around eating and reset your relationship with food. Eat to love is not a diet book, not a “clean eating” manual, and not a guide to “being your best self.
Rather, it is a liberating path to sanity, and to loving the body you have right now. Since early childhood, many of us have heard that something is wrong with our bodies: with the way they look, the way they feel and the food we crave. This diet culture--surrounding us in the form of media, food trends, fashion, and even messages from friends and family--tells us that the only way to be happy is to be thin and to rigidly follow the latest eating dogma.
Eat to love challenges this insidious, pervasive messaging and resets your relationship with food from one that’s shameful to one that’s nourishing, liberating, and enriching. Eat to love is a joyful, intuitive eating, non-diet approach to mindfulness, and falling in love with the body you live in.
In eat to love, and demonstrates how to free your mind from the fear, frustration, nutritionist Jenna Hollenstein leads a spiritual revolution against pervasive attitudes towards food and dieting, and shame often associated with eating.
Befriending Your Body: A Self-Compassionate Approach to Freeing Yourself from Disordered Eating
A step-by-step holistic approach to eating disorder recovery, increase body awareness and acceptance, reconnect to others, using self-compassion and embodiment practices to reduce symptoms, and step back into an integrated life. Those who struggle with disordered eating often find themselves in an unrelenting cycle of harsh self-judgment, painful emotions, and harmful behaviors.
Seeing the body as an adversary, these patterns can lead many people to become withdrawn or isolated. This insight, informed by yoga and mindfulness meditation, views the body not just as something to be healed or restored but as a source of great wisdom and knowledge. Dr. Ann saffi biasetti’s powerful holistic approach to liberating people from disordered eating focuses on growing self-compassion and embodiment.
Her step-by-step program will rebuild self-compassion, self-care, acceptance, body awareness, and connection to the self and to others. Biasetti offers yoga-based movement, body-awareness practices, meditations, and journaling exercises to help release long-held habits of self-criticism and perfectionism.
Drinking to Distraction
Though she never "hit bottom, " Hollenstein eventually realized that drinking was not enhancing her life: it was distracting her from it. Though it didn't cause her to spiral out of control, challenges not taken, drinking seemed to be detracting from her life in subtler ways: missed opportunities, relationships not cherished, unaddressed fears, and creativity unexplored.
Rather than a series of dramatic events often associated with alcoholism, family, her decision to stop drinking was based on years of introspection, and conversations with friends, pros and cons lists, and a wise therapist. But for years jenna Hollenstein worried that she was using alcohol for the wrong reasons.
She never drove or worked drunk, never injured herself or someone else, went bankrupt, never woke up next to a strange man, was fired, or became homeless because of her drinking.
