The Headspace Diet

By Andy Puddicombe

  • Paperback
  • £12.99

A proven 10 day plan to find your ideal weight - the Headspace way

Have you tried every diet going only to see the weight creep back on again? Do you feel guilty and anxious about eating certain foods? Or find yourself unable to resist that extra helping even if you're not actually that hungry? Are you unhappy with your body and how it looks and feels? Now is the time to stop what you're doing and try a different, healthy and brilliantly effective approach...

The Headspace Diet is designed to show you how to find your ideal weight in an easy, manageable and safe way. It will teach you how to remind your body of its own natural intelligence and ability to self regulate, allowing you to escape the neverending diet trap. Here you will follow simple yet potentially life-changing exercises in order to develop new effective habits and a much improved relationship with food and your body.

Mindfulness based meditation is the hot topic in neuroscience, over 2000 scientific papers have already been published in medical journals showing just what extraordinary benefits this easy practice has to offer. The Headspace mission is to get as many people taking just 10 minutes out of their day to practise these powerful techniques. Mindful eating is a key aspect of mindfulness and as you start to practise it you will notice profound results, both in terms of your shape but also your overall health and well being.

Biographical Notes

Andy Puddicombe started learning to meditate at the age of 11, and explored various approaches throughout his teens. In his early twenties he decided to act on his hunch that there had to be more to life, and set off to Asia to become a Buddhist monk. He became a fully ordained monk at a Tibetan Monastery in the Indian Himalayas, and spent many years living in monasteries and retreats throughout the world.

Andy returned to the UK in 2004 with one simple intention: to demystify meditation, to make it accessible, relevant and beneficial to as many people as possible. And thus the seeds of Headspace were sown.

Andy is now a registered Meditation Consultant with the UK Healthcare Commission.

One of the reasons it's so attractive is that it does not promise miracle weight loss.. It's as if I've been waiting for The Headspace Diet to come along. I did feel more in control around food than I had in months. But then, that afternoon, to my immense surprise I heard a voice in my own head. It said: "You are hungry. You probably need to eat a piece of fruit before you get really hungry and start looking for biscuits". I ate a banana. It doesn't sound like a big deal. But it was the most mindful banana I have ever eaten. It tasted good. — Viv Groskop, Red
The Headspace Diet from meditation guru Andy Puddicombe, guides you into a clam space using clear, engaging prose that will help you manage your relationship with food in a mindful, relaxed way. — aMuse

Cheer Up Love, Susan's first book, had a clear aim: to help people understand depression. Sunny Side Up has a similarly clear path: to persuade people to be kinder to each other and spread more joy. These are extremely difficult and confusing times - people are cross and shouty. It's exhausting! But more than anything, people like Susan, people who don't hate other people, are apologising for the way that they think. Susan wants to make sure that they don't. She wants them to know that it's ok to love people and that kindness is something wonderful and brilliant. Above all, she wants them to bring on the joy. So the mission is simple. To get the nation to join her in not being negative. To bring back joy, kindness and community, to find that joy in the little things in life and defeat the hate and fear. Susan is a one-woman army of hope and joy, and she's ready to lead the nation in a different direction.
