    Imagine that it’s summer time and you’re invited to a pool party. The day is hot, with temperatures reaching 85 degrees. A lively game of volley ball is going on in the pool, and the splashing water feels cool on your skin. There is music playing, people laughing and kids doing cannon balls. Against a wall is a table completely filled with delicious appetizers, including a salty, spicy pile of cheese nachos, savory mini meatballs, gooey chocolate-chip cookies, deviled eggs, and fried jalapeño peppers. The grill is warming up in the background, and the aromas of smoky burgers fills the air.

    What emotions come up when you picture this setting? Are you excited to get in your bathing suit and join the friendly competition of pool volley ball? Or are you anxious to be outside because you don’t want to succumb to the food table and overindulge?

    But now, imagine what it would feel like if you could confidently join in the festivities of the warm summer days, not tempted by all the enticing food or sidelined by hunger. What if you could stop struggling with food for good and feel peacefully in control, eating only what satisfies you?

    You can—simply by learning the principles of mindful eating!

    Mindful eating is an easy, useful, practical skill that you can use each and every day. When you learn how to eat mindfully, using intention and attention, you can eat the foods you love without feeling guilty. Instead of struggling around food, you can enjoy a peaceful relationship with your plate. You don’t have to dread social events because they may derail your efforts. And you don’t have to make a big effort to eat healthfully or lose weight, because it will happen naturally. With mindful eating you can enjoy eating again like when you were a kid—guilt-free and with pleasure!
