Promiscuous Eating: Understanding and Ending Our Self-Destructive Relationship with Food will provide you with the insight, tools and motivation that are needed to develop a more harmonious relationship with food...and to ultimately take control of your own health destiny. This book will prove helpful under a variety of circumstances: if you eat for the wrong reasons; if you eat the wrong foods; if you are unaware of exactly what is in what you are eating; if you eat without regard to consequence; or if you eat too much, too rapidly, or at the wrong times or places. Animated by illuminating vignettes of the real-life eating behaviors of men, women and children interviewed by the author, Promiscuous Eating examines one of our most intimate relationships: that of our relationship with food. For far too many of us, this has gone awry, culminating in a multitude of health-damaging issues that can sabotage the quality and the quantity of our lives. These problems include obesity, high blood pressure, diabetes, cardiovascular disease and cancer, as well as loss of our self-esteem and ability to participate in activities that we wish to. By understanding the intricacies of our unique behaviors vis-à-vis food, we are enabled to amend this relationship. The resultant change in diet and eating habits can be transformative-- if not life saving--in terms of preventing and/or reversing the havoc wreaked by unhealthy, inappropriate and dysfunctional consumption. By cultivating mindful eating strategies, we can commence the journey towards becoming enlightened and conscientious eaters, liberating ourselves from emotional, mindless and promiscuous eating patterns and changing our relationship with food from foe to friend.
