For anyone who struggles with food, eating, and body image, Intuitive Eating for Life presents easy and effective mindfulness skills to enhance, sustain, and deepen your intuitive eating practice!
Intuitive eating is a great way to get off the diet roller coaster, stay healthy, build confidence in your body, and take the guesswork out of mealtime. But if you’re like many people, you may have trouble staying on track. Enter mindfulness! Based on the popular anti-diet book program, Intuitive Eating, renowned nutrition therapist and meditation teacher Jenna Hollenstein provides powerful mindfulness tools to help you find stability, discover self-awareness, and self-regulate—so you can respect your body and honor your health.
In this step-by-step guide, you’ll learn to practice intuitive eating using the Four Foundations of Mindfulness, a classic Buddhist framework. The Four Foundations include:
Mindfulness of body, in which you will examine how the body awareness enhances your ability to practice the principles of intuitive eating—honor your hunger, respect your fullness, and exercise.
Mindfulness of feeling, in which you will explore the ways that mindfulness and meditation can provide stability and self-awareness, allowing you to experience the full spectrum of your emotions in real time.
Mindfulness of mind, in which you will examine your own beliefs and misconceptions about eating and the body and respond to them with compassion
Mindfulness of dhammas (or phenomena), in which you will learn how phenomena such as the impermanence of life can shift our focus from improving our bodies to caring for them.
Using these simple and easy-to-remember foundations, you’ll discover that you can easily stay on track with your intuitive eating path, and actually improve it for better health and overall well-being. So, what are you waiting for?
“Bravo, Intuitive Eating for Life! I wholeheartedly agree there is undeniable freedom available to us when we embrace the present moment, allowing us not only to celebrate each and every meal before us, but the life-affirming nourishment our souls receive as well.”

“What a gift to have a book that complements Intuitive Eating, while also bringing meaning to why mindfulness and intuitive eating are so interconnected. Jenna Hollenstein takes intuitive eating from its self-care framework and weaves it into a practice that is sustained through a dedication to mindfulness, acceptance, and self-compassion. Through thought-provoking questions and exercises, she guides the reader down a path that brings unconscious perceptions into conscious awareness, ultimately leading to decreased stress and increased well-being. This book is a gem!”
—Elyse Resch, MS, RDN, CEDS-S, nutrition therapist, coauthor of Intuitive Eating, and author of The Intuitive Eating Workbook for Teens
