Mindful eating trainings can range from 6 to 12 weeks. The shorter trainings will give you a taste of the different aspects of mindful eating and an understanding of its foundational elements. You will discover how mindful eating will transform your relationship with food and your body, and give you a sense of ease and freedom around eating.

The longer 12 week trainings take a deeper dive into the various components of mindful eating, positive/negative self-talk, body image, body respect, emotional eating and other topics. It is important to remember that unlike diets, mindful eating is NOT A QUICK FIX! It is a process but one that is well worth your time, patience, energy and sustained effort.

When you practice the principles of mindful eating, the experience of eating will become pleasurable, not something to be feared. No longer will you do battle with food and your body and begin the diet cycle again, but you will instead, replace the struggle with self-love, self-compassion, and self-acceptance. As a result, you open the door to greater energy, joy, aliveness, and the limitless possibilities in your life!

In my experience, by nourishing and treating your body with kindness and respect physically, emotionally, and spiritually, it will naturally release unnecessary weight.

So, Listen to the Wisdom of Your Body, Honor It, and Cherish It and You Will Reap the Rewards of your Efforts!!!

What is mindful eating?

Mindful eating is a conscious way of eating that has its roots in the Eastern concept of mindfulness. It involves the practice of paying close attention to your eating experience and eating with intention to nourishing your body. When eating mindfully you utilize all your senses and allowing yourself to fully enjoy the pleasure of eating without guilt, shame, judgment, anxiety, or fear. It also includes attending closely to your thoughts, emotions, and body sensations so you can become attuned to and skilled at reading your body’s true, physical hunger and satisfaction signals. Nourishing your body when you are physically, not emotionally, hungry and stopping when you are comfortably full, is an act of self-love and the more you practice, the more you will come to love and trust your body.

As you learn to honor, respect, and take care of your body’s needs (eating a variety of foods, exercise/enjoyable movement, adequate sleep, establishing a routine of self-care activities, setting healthy boundaries to create work/life balance), the emotional eating will stop and will be replaced by greater awareness and new skills that will form lifelong healthy, energy enhancing patterns. The freedom that results will allow you to open yourself to living a life of unlimited possibilities, happiness, and contentment.

Mindful Eating is NOT about dieting, counting calories, focusing on attaining a certain number on the scale, trying to lose weight for a significant event, or trying to be a certain size.

Mindful Eating is NOT about viewing foods as “good” or “bad” and judging yourself as “good” or “bad” for eating them.

Mindful Eating is NOT about getting on and off the Diet Rollercoaster of gaining and losing weight.

Mindful Eating IS Your Key OUT of the Diet Jail!!

So, Set Yourself Free and Love Yourself and Your Body by Becoming a Mindful Eater!
