At the end of the book Ms. Kabatznick said that people often ask her " What's the bottom line for losing weight and keeping it off?" She said she used to suggest things like exercise and eating in moderation but now " I only suggest practicing the recipes for nourishing the heart. That's how you learn to be kind to yourself and to every moment."
I bought it at Amazon for 1penny (plush S&H). You can "open" the book there for it's contents. Here are a few quotes from her book. I do recommend it.
" the Third Noble Truth recognizes that freedom from suffering is possible. It is attained by letting go attachments to desire, which bind you to the futile habit of seeking nourishment where it cannot be found. What provides the fullness you hunger for is not grasping at what's pleasant or rejecting what isn't, but staying present with whatever is going on."
" Once you're stuck in reacting, there's no end to the suffering/hunger you can experience. There are always people or situations to blame that keep suffering/hunger alive. If you don't realize that the source is within you, you keep trying to fill the emotional vacuum. Until you see the relationship between mental attitude and suffering you continue to search for satisfaction everywhere and find it nowhere,"
" Right Aspiration isn't about blind obedience to an arbitrary sets of rules, like following a grapefruit low-protein diet. It's about giving meaning to your behavior, no matter what the rules are."
