A proven 10 day plan to find your ideal weight - the Headspace way
Formally The Headspace Diet, this book is designed to show you how to find your ideal weight in an easy, manageable and mindful way. It allows you to escape the endless diet trap by following simple yet potentially life-changing exercises in order to develop new effective habits and a much improved relationship with food and your body.
The Headspace mission is to get as many people taking just 10 minutes out of their day to practise these powerful mindfulness 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.
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...

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

Andy Puddicombe is a meditation and mindfulness expert. An accomplished presenter and writer, Andy is the voice of all things Headspace.
In his early twenties, midway through a university degree in Sports Science, Andy made the unexpected decision to travel to the Himalayas to study meditation instead. It was the beginning of a ten year journey which took him around the world, culminating with ordination as a Tibetan Buddhist monk in Northern India.
His transition back to lay life in 2004 was no less extraordinary. Training briefly at Moscow State Circus, he returned to London where he completed a degree in Circus Arts with the Conservatoire of Dance and Drama, whilst drawing up the early plans for what was later to become Headspace.
He has been featured widely in international press, appearing in Vogue, NYT, FT, Entrepreneur, Men's Health and Esquire, to name but a few. He also makes regular appearances on TV and online, having been featured on BBC, Dr Oz, Netflix and TED.
Andy currently lives in Venice, California, with his wife Lucinda.
