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.
