Editorial Reviews

Review

“If you take it to heart, which means if you incorporate its various practices into your daily life, you will find that this book is an ever-giving gold mine. As its valuable and freeing recommendations are internalized, eating in a happy and healthy way for you and mindfulness will become synonymous. This approach can transform your relationship to food, to your body, to your mind, and to life.”
--Jon Kabat-Zinn, founder of MBSR (mindfulness-based stress reduction), and author of Full Catastrophe Living and Mindfulness for Beginners

“If you have suffered from food addiction, please give yourself the gift of reading this book. In her pioneering work, Dr. Jean Kristeller offers a pathway to healing that is based on a contemporary understanding of self-regulation and powerful mindfulness-based strategies that will change your relationship with eating, and more. These clear, accessible teachings and practices turn struggle on its head, call forth our deepest wisdom, and reveal the possibility for finding great joy in living.”
--Tara Brach, Ph.D., author of Radical Acceptance and True Refuge 

The Joy of Half a Cookie is really about reclaiming the joy of life. With a lifetime of successful counseling and research experience, Kristeller provides the tools that people can use to move their focus to living instead of obsessing about food. This program’s flexible, specific, and novel tools help lose weight in a painless way.”
--Brian Wansink, Ph.D., New York Times-bestselling author of Mindless Eating
