    Changing eating habits is 5% about food and 95% about emotional and social issues. The exercises in this workbook awaken us from our food coma.

For example, we notice if nuts leave us gassy and bloated. We take ownership of our health and stop eating foods we don't want to eat despite what others think and say. We eat what feels right to us and lose weight, reverse chronic conditions, experience more energy, and feel more centered as a result. Eating Your Way To Health is a remedy for transforming your life. Be warned: This book contains yummy recipes and you are likely to start being happier while losing weight.
