Joel Fuhrman’s new book, Eat for Health, actually it is a book set of 2 vol., has recently been published in 2008. His (2005) Eat to Live book, is my favorite how-to-eat book. He is convinced, the way I am, that increasing nutrient rich food does have the effect of decreasing hunger. It makes sense your body would hunger for specific nutrients and then in a moment of unconsciousness if you inhale a low-nutrient habitual food you can experience you are still hungry. Or worse you just eat without thinking sans hunger.
Pema Chodron mentioned there have been many studies showing that when you are trying to move out of an old habit you can say I won’t do that and then experience a moment of going unconscious and just do it anyway. Her idea is essentially if it is your mind that is driving you to the fridge, work with your mind; train your mind using mindfulness techniques. Pema’s work is brilliant.
Last plug for Joel, I just reopened Eat to Live to the page where he recommends a six-week plan. I still find this book very helpful, even after a few years it is my fav.
That said, in my opinion, this field has a real need for writers and writing can be a helpful tool for your progress. I strongly encourage you to get writing your blog, your book, your journal, your website, your emails, vlogs, audio, etc. It seems likely this field will ride a large and long wave of popularity and we all need a variety of good material to inspire us. We all have to start somewhere and be willing to fail in order to get started. Mom, I really want you to write a book and tell your experience – please write this book!
A note about Joel Fuhrman’s new book, Eat for Health, I understand it is about to be republished in paper back, it can be tricky to get a copy at the moment. I just had to reorder a second copy through a different online vendor, hopefully this one will actually have a copy.
