Eat for Life: Mindfulness-Based Intuitive Eatingsavoring food
with Lori Schermers RD

Stay Tuned.. Next session scheduled for October 2018

Eat for Life (EFL), s a mindfulness-based intuitive eating program that helps people have a healthy relationship with food and their bodies. Empirically validated to decrease binge eating while increasing body image, mindfulness, and intuitive eating.

Using mind-body practices such as meditation and yoga, learn to listen to the guidance of your body to improve health and well-being. This revolutionary 8-week educational program combines intuitive eating principles and mindfulness practice leading to rediscovery of pleasure in food, appreciation for your body (as it is) and decreases in problematic eating behavior.

This non-diet approach to eating advocates acceptance of self and the body as the first step in making changes. Using a non-judgmental, compassionate approach, participants re-learn to use internal physical cues to guide what and when to eat.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe Intuitive Eating
  • Discuss the BASICS of mindful eating
  • Describe the role of mindfulness in cultivating a mindful eating practice
  • List common cognitive distortions that interfere with our ability to eat healthfully
  • Summarize the three tenets of food wisdom
  • List common barriers to being physically active, and ways to overcome them

Developed by Lynn Rossy PhD, author of ‘The Mindfulness-Based Eating Solution’ one of Mindful Magazines top ten Mindfulness books of 2016.
