Every Bite is Divine is definitely not just another diet book. This one uses the tenets of yoga to explore the journey of life change rather than endure another diet with lists of foods to eat and avoid. Every Bite is Divine will help you learn balance and self-acceptance. Read and be inspired by the personal stories and examples of others in the book. You already know what moderation is, but with Annie Kay's compassionate voice, you'll actually learn how to practice moderation. These yoga techniques will guide you in becoming a mindful eater. I will definitely use some of these exercises and concepts with patients in my own practice.

As a Registered Dietitian and fellow yogini, I couldn't help but feel right at home with Annie B. Kay's book Every Bite is Divine. The book is much more than just a book on nutrition or yoga.

Kay gives you the information you need to learn to love yourself -- body and spirit. There are 29 exercises to enable you to enhance all aspects of your life. They start with intention and end with journaling on specific topics. Sprinkled in between are yoga exercises, meditations and more. Information on healthy eating and lifestyle is approachable.

Reading and absorbing this book is like having your own dietitian and registered yoga teacher at your disposal. If you don't live near Annie B. Kay (and most of us don't) you'll want this book next to your bed to step on to the path to a happy, healthy life, along with the map to stay there. The gems you uncover are yours to keep.

Excellent! We are what we eat, plus so much more. I applaud Annie Kay for going the next step, beyond food itself. As a registered dietitian, I enjoyed the way her book, "Every Bite is Divine" relates eating with yoga and breathing through awareness and mindfulness. After all, it's our choices and our responsibility, what and how much we put into our mouth. The step-by-step exercises and yoga instructions offer people an opportunity to begin the journey of mindfulness, in eating and overall behavior change. Annie offers tools to lose and maintain a healthier, comfortable weight in an enjoyable and realistic manner.

Reviewed by Paige Lovitt for Reader Views (1/07)

Every day we are bombarded with unhealthy and confusing messages by the media. In one moment we are seeing ads for unhealthy fast food, the next we are being taught that to be popular we have to be skinny. The author, Annie B. Kay, tells us that, "We each have a perfect and natural shape." If we learn to take care of ourselves properly we will be able to accept our unique and healthy body. She feels that we can find our true self by using yoga and other methods of relaxation.

As a teenager, Ms. Kay developed an unhealthy attitude towards her body and food. She became bulimic so that she could eat whatever she wanted and stay thin. Even when she became a clinician in the field of nutrition, she continued to struggle with her weight and eating. Knowing that she overcame these obstacles made me feel like she has more compassion for her readers because she has personally experienced these issues.

Ms. Kay writes about how you can reconnect to yourself and get healthier and happier by caring for yourself compassionately. Cycling through bouts of binge eating and depression does not help us find out who we really are. Ms. Kay discovered that yoga helped her to rediscover and reconnect with her authentic self. It taught her how to be in her body. To help us achieve these goals she provides us with exercises. These exercises involve a lot of self-exploration. There are also yoga exercises with diagrams to demonstrate how the position should be done.

I think that "Every Bite is Divine" is a great book with which to start off the New Year. I learned a lot about myself while I was reading it and answering the questions that were put there for introspection. I found that Ms.

We all know that diets don't work--that is, people don't lose weight and keep it off permanently. So what does? Caring for the body you have and embracing your natural weight and shape! Author Annie Kay's unique background as both a registered dietitian and a registered yoga teacher allows her to illuminate a balanced, realistic approach to getting to the weight that is best for you.

Using the power of yoga and meditation, you can train your mind to think clearly, calmly and kindly in order to make lasting changes that will enhance your health and total well-being. I particulary like how the philosophy and practice of yoga and other relaxation techniques as they apply to reaching and maintaining a healthy weight are "demystified" and made accessible to anyone. If you're new to yoga or have always wanted to try it, Every Bite is Divine includes clearly-described exercises with accompanying diagrams.
