What’s “mindful eating”?

Mindfulness involves directing full attention to the direct sensations of the moment. It involves maintaining moment-to-moment awareness of your body, emotions and surroundings.

Eating mindfully involves being more aware of your food consumption, and reaching a state of full attention and consciousness to your emotions, cravings, physical cues and the entire experience when eating, objectively and without judgment.

Mindful eating is not a diet! It is a practice based on your natural internal body cues, and systems you were born with, that will help you move closer to your bigger health goals, and that can fit any lifestyle and any eating style that you want for yourself.

Who is this workshop for?

This interactive workshop is for you if:

  • You are struggling with emotional eating or binge eating.
  • You tend to eat mindlessly and on autopilot most of the time.
  • You have tried several restrictive diets without getting sustainable results, and you are ready to learn a more balanced, healthy and enjoyable way to achieve sustainable weight loss and health results.

What will you learn in this workshop?

  • The benefits of mindful eating, and how it will help you manage emotional eating and achieving your health goals.
  • How to reconnect with and regulate your natural physical sensations of hunger and satiety.
  • How to be in control of your food, make more informed choices instead of feeling out of control and improve your relationship with food.
  • How to slow down and fully enjoy the taste and flavor of your food without judgments.
