Interesting but meandering

I love Eisentstein’s work in general. While this book does have some great thoughts and perspectives in it, and the basic premise I’d sound, it seemed he couldn’t avoid some righteous advice giving which I found annoying. His usual coherence just seemed a bit off.

The narrator could learn a lot. Like basic pauses at the end of the chapters. Her butchering of so many pronunciations was unprofessional, but perhaps that’s on the editor/ producer.

Still worth the read with some gems!

The only 'diet' book you'll ever need

I recomend this book to everyone. Of years of trying to learn about nutrition to do right, I realized the greatest teacher is my own body. Brings awareness to self and turns consumption into a sacred transfer of energy.

A must read!

Loved the framing and point of view. It’s only 4 hours or so long and worth the listen.

Changing The Food/Body Perspective

Listening content-performance excellence sparked life awakening/revolution in how I view both bodily-food ties. Most meaningful.

Good guidance for eating in modern world. Poor reading.

Despite the poor reading, very good content. Have to get past the reader to the insights. Speed playing helps.

Great guidelines to integrate diet, health & life

This is a must for anyone who is looking for an easy and simple way to change the way they eat and live. It provides great insights to the food we eat, why we eat them and the role it plays to our true craving in life. What I loved most is that there are no do's and don't just guidelines and for you to connect inwards and listen to what your body needs. A must easier approach than restraining to certain foods

A wonderful read. Not to be missed.

I thoroughly enjoyed listening to the book. I couldn't recommend it enough. A short and simple book that throws light on many complexities of life and gently nudges you to practice the yoga of eating.

Unique Perspective on an Familiar Problem

Another genius book by Esinstein! I will be meditating on the principles of this book for years to come and look forward to implementing the Yoga of Eating into my life more and more in that time as well.
