Jan Chozen Bays, MD, is a meditation teacher and the author of Mindful Eating: A Guide to Rediscovering a Healthy and Joyful Relationship with Food. 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. Her teachings include 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 are really hungry for
