Establishing a Mindful Eating Practice

Sharon Theroux, Ph.D. Establishing a mindful eating practice, and moving away from the diet mentality is life affirming. However, cultivating such a practice in our fast-paced society can be a challenge, requiring a shift from using external guidance about what, when, and how much to eat (e.g. diets, provided portion sizes, dress size, the bathroom scale) to internal guidance (e.g. using your taste buds, your hunger/satiety cues). A daily formal practice is essential. Given March 14, 2017.

Developing a Practice of Healthful Eating: How Mindful Eating Can Help

Megrette Fletcher, M.Ed., RD, CDE, 2013-2015 TCME President

What is a mindful eating practice? If you have ever wondered how mindful eating works and what exactly it can do to help you discover healthier relationship with food, then join Megrette as she explores how to practice eating healthy - without restriction, deprivation and shame.

In the first part of this 90 minute program you will explore how creating a practice is different in so many ways than a goal. Learn what the barriers are to creating an effective practice and identify some simple ways to bring mindful eating into your life.

In the second 90 minute program, you will build on your learning by sharing in a mindful eating meal/snack. Together we try some simple techniques to understand ways to really enjoy food and eating. This program is specifically designed for individuals who are looking to bring mindful eating into their daily lives.

Presentation includes Powerpoint, Powerpoint slides, handouts and suggested readings from the TCME Professional Handouts and Food for Thought archive.

Mindless Eating As A Form Of Self Betrayal

Ronna Kabatznick, PhD

There are many reasons why we eating mindlessly ranging from excessive hunger, to habit, to not knowing mindful eating practices. Another reason is to numb pain, consciously or unconsciously, and thus betray the thoughts, feelings and sensations that so desperately need our attention. Instead of staying with the pain at the various levels we may be experiencing them, we act out against it by eating mindlessly, keeping us in a perpetual cycle of betrayal which keeps us away from the satisfaction and peace of mind we are seeking.
