40 Days to Enlightened Eating: the Course becomes a Book
Elise Cantrell, a professional yoga instructor and a certified ayurvedic lifestyle counselor and owner of Shining Yoga Wellness Studio, in Kohler, Wisconsin, has released a new book, 40 Days to Enlightened Eating, as a detailed follow-up to her six-week course of the same name. Cantrell has applied the teachings of the ancient sciences of yoga and Ayurveda to create an eating plan intended to optimize weight, health, energy and vitality. The book is designed to be studied one chapter per day for 40 days, the time needed to reconstruct habits and forge lasting change, according to Cantrell.
“Many eating plans cause weight loss at the expense of energy and health,” says Cantrell. “This plan is developed to lighten not only your body, but the mind and spirit, too.” The book includes insight into the best way to eat, exercise and practice yoga relative to one’s ayurvedic constitution, as well as how to detoxify the system and reset cravings, appetite and metabolism. Healthy recipes accompany the book’s daily food journal with writing suggestions to help the reader integrate the teachings into daily life. The 40-day process helps the reader break self-sabotaging exercise and eating patterns.
