Susan Albers, PsyD ’01

Brunner-Routledge, paperback 2005

Each year, thousands of students arrive on college campuses unprepared for many of the challenges and experiences that await them. And despite the efforts of parents, teachers and friends who offer advice on a range of topics, including drugs, alcohol and study habits, one important area is overlooked — how to eat healthier.

In Mindful Eating 101, Susan Albers presents a guide to healthy eating and self acceptance that will help readers navigate the weight-obsessed, diet-crazed, fast-food saturated college environment — where 70 percent of college students worry about gaining weight — by establishing patterns of eating that will form the groundwork for a healthier life beyond college.

Albers is a psychology professor at the College of Wooster in Ohio and a clinical psychologist specializing in eating issues at the Women’s Health Center in Cleveland. She has been noted in O (the Oprah Magazine) and Self magazine
