Book Review: Meditate Your Weight by Tiffany Cruikshank
Title: Meditate Your Weight
Author: Tiffany Cruikshank
Publisher: Crown Publishing
Publication Date: April 5th, 2016
Mindfulness, meditation, and healthy living come together to form a comprehensive and detailed program to enhance one’s living standards, in Meditate Your Weight by Tiffany Cruikshank. I was first intrigued by the title and the promise of combining meditation and weight-loss, only to find out that this book is much more than that.
As a big proponent of gentle, positive living, mindfulness and intuitive eating, I was intrigued and happily excited to read a book that combines all of those and more. Transformational, powerful and without a doubt, not the typical diet book, I suggest that you should suspend for a moment what you are taught about standard dieting programs and give this book a detailed look.
It is more than just a book about dieting and weight loss – it is a guide to awakening one’s mind and body connection, and it does so with easy to follow steps, as well as a thorough approach which includes action steps, and journaling exercises.A different approach to weight loss: Meditate Your Weight by Tiffany Cruikshank - A Book Review Click To Tweet
You will not find recipes or a detailed diet plan, but rather learn how to make choices that are right for you, and why you made other choices before, without any condescending or harsh tone, that is placed throughout many other books about weight loss.
It is the opposite of a book I recently read – opposite in a very good way – and a lot better remedy to permanently changing emotional and binge eating habits because it focuses on the root of the problem as well as the root of the potential solution – your mind.
Weight problems are less often a body problem, but more a mind-related issue, and this is one of the very few books that allows you to learn to overcome whatever issues you may have with food, eating, and dieting.
While it only contains a 21-Day-Plan (enough to change a habit forever if you are willing), this is a lifestyle, holistic plan, that you should work on and with for the rest of your life.
Keep this guide on your shelf, and use it as a reference once you have worked yourself through the program.
One of the best healthy lifestyle books I have read in a long time.

THE MIND MAKEOVER THAT MAKES OVER YOUR METABOLISM
Hundreds of medical studies have shown the spectacular health benefits of meditation. Now Tiffany Cruikshank, founder of Yoga Medicine, puts that scientific research to good, practical use by incorporating easy-to-use, targeted meditations into a unique weight-loss program. This 21-day plan optimizes health as well as body image by tapping the hidden strength of the mind. We learn a whole new way to lose weight; and it takes just a few relaxing and energizing minutes a day. Learn:
• How to get started: advice for new meditators (no weird positions or chants required)
• 3, 5, 7, and 10 minute meditations that bust cravings, break self-defeating habits, stress-proof the body, and reboot the brain
• What to eat—and the top 5 foods to consider avoiding
• How to continue your success after your 21-day retreat
• Bonus: 10 stress-relieving, cardio-revving yoga exercises to complement the plan
Each day of the plan in Meditate Your Weight helps you explore and release what’s weighing you down physically, emotionally, and mentally—the mental blocks, thoughts, habits, and behaviors that stand in your way—to make it easier to think more clearly, make better choices, and maximize metabolism. As you lighten up on the inside, you’ll lighten up on the outside.
Less stress=less belly fat. More calm + more balance = a healthier you.
