Read full description of the books The Yoga of Eating: Transcending Diets and Dogma to Nourish the Natural Self:I suspect that I liked this book because I took it with a rather large grain of salt (npi). Eisenstein sometimes careens rather quickly from sensible (Why yes, raw vegan diets make plenty of sense for hermits with minimal physical activity--oh, you say you live in the world? With people? And a job? Perhaps rethink the celery...) to odd (I understood his logic around the point, but I think he's probably the first person ever to claim that tea is bad for you, and I just can't get on board with that idea). He's best when he talks about the actual practice of the yoga of eating--eat slowly enough to be able to actually taste your food, and trust that your sense of taste can guide you quite effectively towards what you want and need and away from what you don't. At any rate, the book is pleasantly short enough that you can avoid actually overdosing on the woo-woo; perhaps the best testament I can make to his good ideas is that writing this review has alerted me to the fact that I'm thirsty.
