So, I'm over halfway through the book (it's only a hundred and some pages), it's hard to put it down!

Most of it, makes a heck of a lot of sense. Some is it is so completely mind-blowing. Not in a bad way. A little of it is weird (but yet not weird.. if that makes sense).

It generally requires common sense (eating veggies, less meat etc etc - same stuff you'd find here), but it really shakes up some notions most of us have as "norms" toward food.

On thing that I think would make this particularly difficult for those who work and have strict lunch schedules: the idea is to have lunch be your biggest meal, and dinner much smaller (essentially swapping what most people think of as lunch and dinner). Not only that, but to have freshly cooked food for each meal - not just fresh food, but freshly cooked - as in, no reheating leftovers. Which would make this impossible for those who can't go home and cook a big meal.

Of course it's not a all or nothing kind of thing, so I'm sure everyone can find a way that works best for them.

Overall, I'm enjoying it, and I'm going to try the majority of the techniques, tweaking as needed for my life (and laziness).

I will look into that book too. It sounds good.

I've followed a couple of his guided meditations and get emails, but I'm always exploring!

I was perusing the library today and stumbled across this little book. I first noticed the author and, recognizing the name, grabbed the book and looked over it.

On the front it describes itself as "The complete mind/body program for achieving and maintaining your ideal weight". Sounds intriguing. At this point, I was probably already going to check out the book (I mean, it's Chopra after all), but then...

Then I read the first paragraph of the intro.

The short of it, is that it says this book is different from all others, by one simple thing: It's based on the point of view that there isn't anything wrong with you. There isn't anything to "fix".

Well that sealed the deal, this book was most definitely going home with me. I only got a couple pages in on the ride home, but I think I'm really going to like it.

Has anyone else read it?
