Overcoming Obstacles and Dispelling Myths
For those of us with demanding schedules, daily meals tend to be rushed, with little time to savor or even enjoy the food we eat. Even with the best intentions, life sometimes gets in the way. This three part workshop will focus on overcoming the common obstacles as well as dispelling the myths about mindful eating.
Faculty and staff are invited to join Lisa Thomas, Registered Dietitian and mindful eating expert, in this 3-part mindful eating workshop.
Tuesdays: May 23, 30 and June 6
Hall of Languages, Room 500
*Space is limited. The Wellness Team will notify you of a confirmed spot or if you are on the wait list.
Topics to be covered include:
- Understanding Hunger and Satiety Cues – how to use the hunger scale (practice at home), an experiential chocolate meditation and a discussion on appetite disruptors such as caffeine, reflux, and low blood glucose.
- Whole Health and a Dieting Culture – the biology of weight regulation including a review of research and defining dieting and healthy eating in terms of balance. Freedom with food and eating; all foods fit!
- The Impact of Technology on Mindful Eating and Health – How to make changes in a culture that sometimes emphasizes healthy weight over healthy eating.
