The best-selling author of How to Meditate explains how individuals can formulate a personalized meditation plan tailored to their specific needs that will help dieters gain control over their eating, improve self-esteem, and maintain a healthy body weight.
Psychologist Lawrence LeShan is a pioneering expert in mind/body health and in making meditation techniques accessible to the general public. Now he has created a simple but powerful meditation program that'can make the crucial difference in losing weight--and maintaining new, healthier habits. The program can be individualized to fit personal needs in each of four areas: gaining a general sense of control; dealing specifically with hunger and food issues; handling stressful times and emergencies; and finding ways to get more joy and zest out of life. Many realistic case histories show how the exercises can work in as little as thirty minutes a day, even for people who thought they couldn't learn to meditate. Of course meditation alone will not bring about weight loss, but following Lawrence LeShan's program will maximize the ability to stick to a personal diet and exercise plan. And along with weight loss and increased self-esteem will come the possibility of maintaining a more fulfilling and pleasurable life.
