The Mindfulness-Based Eating Solution - Meet the Author & Book Signing, Lynn Rossy
When:  April 1, 2017, 1:00 p.m.
Where: Koelbel Library
What: What are you really hungry for? Is it food, happiness, or something else? In her book, mindfulness expert Lynn Rossy offers a proven-effective, whole-body approach to help you discover the real reasons why you're overeating.

Recently named one of the top "Mindful" books of 2016, The Mindfulness-Based Eating Solution provides an innovative and proven effective program to help you slow down, savor each bite, and actually eat less.  This unique, whole-body approach will encourage you to adopt healthy eating habits by showing you how to listen to your body's intuition, uncover the psychological cause of your overeating, and be more mindful during mealtime.  According to a recent study, women in Rossy's Eat for Life program reported higher levels of body appreciation and intuitive eating and lower levels of problematic eating behaviors than did the wait list comparison group. If you want to lose weight, feel better, and truly enjoy your food, the easy-to-use strategies in this book will show you how- one mindful taste at a time.
