“Jessica Simpson, who was battered by media coverage about her weight earlier this year, is…reportedly shopping around a new reality program that focuses on society’s scrutiny of women’s bodies.” Will you watch?

The “secret first step” to mindful eating? Self Acceptance, says Dr. Susan Albers on the Huffington Post. “The goal of self-acceptance is to learn how to say, ‘I am who I am’ without trying to radically change yourself or body shape.” At Green Mountain, we’ve been encouraging self-acceptance for years because it is also the secret first step to living well.

Check your attitude. The more you practice thinking positively about following a healthful diet, the sooner you’ll adopt a more positive attitude toward food, says Psychology Today.

Our Lady of Weight Loss responded to National Donut Day by calling on the Angel of Avocado for a recipe.

    I think it’s a really great idea to think about what really makes you eat, when you aren’t even hungry. I know a lot of times I eat when I am tired, or when I am bored. I am aware of that, so I need to work on it. I’m not killing myself over my “flaws” but I am staying aware. Great post.

    Great links- and with regards to the overeating, Kessler’s “The End of Overeating” is a fantastic book that I just reviewed on my blog.
