I have struggled for years with being overweight, and I have some serious physical limitations from injuries. I found this book to be a compassionate and practical guide to making changes in a way I could manage. It is well written and intelligent, and surprisingly easy to internalize. Using yoga and meditation to develop a healthy relationship with my body has proven to be an important first step in losing weight and getting healthy. This is not a quick fix book - it is helping me make real and fundamental changes to how I live day to day. I highly recommend it!

We are often told that our difficulty with food is driven by a lack of dietary knowledge. Yet only changing our diet is a short-term solution that generally adds to our frustrations with weight, with food, and with ourselves. Fortunately, there is a more holistic approach.
