EATING WITH FIERCE
A Mindful and Compassionate Guide to Losing Weight
Published by New Harbinger.
Eating with Fierce Kindness is not a diet, but a way to revolutionize how you think about yourself and
about food. Fierce kindness refers to a strong determination to change thoughts, beliefs and behaviors that are not
in your best interest in the long run, and doing so out of kindness rather than criticism and blame. In this book I
have combined the latest research on self-kindness, positive psychology, and mindfulness and applied it to changing eating
behavior. This book will guide you toward an understanding of why and how you are eating so you can successfully change
your eating patterns.
