Eat by Choice, Not by Habit

Practical Skills for Creating a Healthy Relationship With Your Body and Food

Eat less and enjoy more by recognizing the real needs behind nourishment

Combining sound dietary information with the techniques of the Nonviolent Communication (NVC) process, this booklet shifts the focus from simple weight loss to changing the ways readers relate to food and their food choices. Eating is a need, but for those caught in cycles of overconsumption and dieting, it’s often a poor attempt to meet other needs, such as emotional fulfillment.

When reconnected to actual needs, however, consumption habits turn into nutritional choices, signaling greater freedom. Practical strategies are outlined for breaking out of cycles of eating and becoming aware of one's needs. Rather than being a proscriptive fad diet, the suggestions encourage readers to explore the emotional consciousness that underlies their eating patterns, freeing them to once again enjoy the tastes, smells, and sensations of good eating.
