Mindful Eating Mindful Life (quality paperback + CD)
Mary Ann Wallace
Includes CD. Most diets work so long as we stay on them, none work when we are off them, and many people rebound after a dietary stint to a new, even higher weight. In 2006, Mary Ann Wallace developed her Mindful Eating classes, inviting individuals to explore the roots of their eating habits at the deepest level possible. This is where the problem began. This is where true and effective change is possible. This book and the accompanying CD are designed to take you to those places within yourself where these secrets reside - the hidden parts of yourself where you've learned to lie to yourself, or where you simply have never been aware of all that goes into your eating. The information contained here draws from conventional medicine, Chinese medicine, and the wisdom gleaned from the hundreds of participants in the Mindful Eating classes.

The Core Balance Diet4 Weeks to Boost Your Metabolism and Lose Weight for Good
The Core Balance Diet
4 Weeks to Boost Your Metabolism and Lose Weight for Good
Marcelle Pick

From the co-founder of Women to Women, one of the first clinics in the country devoted to providing health care for women by women, comes a whole new way to look at weight loss: The Core Balance Diet. Marcelle Pick draws upon decades of patient and personal experience to solve the mystery of stubborn, frustrating weight gain in women, whether you’ve just gained it or have been struggling with it for years. This breakthrough program, which has benefited many of the thousands of women who visit the clinic each year, is rooted in cutting-edge nutritional science that explores the weblike relationship between women’s hormones, metabolism, and weight gain. In clear terms, Pick connects the dots between self-knowledge, self-care, and the ability to lose weight, extending the concept of body-mind-spirit to demonstrate why and how a woman’s biography becomes her biology.

At its most basic level, The Core Balance Diet shows you how to self-diagnose one of six major biochemical imbalances that may be preventing you from losing weight. These include digestive, hormonal, adrenal, neurotransmitter, inflammatory, and detoxification imbalances. From there, Pick guides you through easy lifestyle and diet changes customized to heal your specific imbalance. Throughout, you will learn how to begin living in a manner that encourages optimal health—without a lot of deprivation and stringent dieting rules— by achieving core balance from the inside out, and, of course, weight loss for life.
