We all know that emotions like anger, loneliness, or low self-esteem can lead to cravings for sugary foods.

Today we think about the possibility that mindfulness meditation may be a tool we can use to stand up to these emotions and control our cravings for sugary and fatty foods.

I talk about a recent episode (episode number 61) on Dan Harris’ podcast called 10% happier. It can be found on iTunes and Google play music.

In this episode, Dan Harris interviews a psychiatrist by the name of Dr. Judson Brewer. His new book is called The Craving Mind. He also has an app called Eat Right Now.

I discuss one of my favorite meditation teachers, Dr. Jon Kabat Zinn. He has 2 books on the subject of mindfulness meditation. One of them is called Wherever you go, there you are. The second is called Full Catastrophe Living.

As always, you can ask questions or suggest topics for future episodes on my website contact page.
