Am I Hungry? ®: Intuitive Eating for Weight Management

This workshop is intended for anyone who loves food, but believes that they are not in control of their food choices. They may have tried many other ways to manage their weight and found that they lack the “will power” to stay on a diet. Attendees will clearly discover why diets haven’t worked for them, or most other people. It will shift the power away from food and back to them, opening their eyes to a whole new way of thinking, using the models of the Eating Cycle to pinpoint where they are at any given time in this cycle. This insight alone will begin to shift their perspective, allowing them to see their choices in a completely new way. By the end of this session, they’ll be more mindfully aware of why they eat, what’s driving their choices, tools they have always had, and more in charge of moving toward their weight management goals.
