As concern about body size continues as a primary topic among those interested in health and well-being, it is essential that mindful eating teachers understand the role of mindful eating in supporting the internal regulation of a healthful weight. Equally important is to recognize weight stigma, which is a driving factor for eating and weight struggles among many people. This presentation will equip mindful eating teachers with understanding, knowledge and tools to help their clients move beyond the thin ideal to make eating choices that truly support their health and well-being.

- Compare the outcomes of weight-focused and mindful approaches to eating
- Identify three ways that weight stigma contributes to poor health

ABOUT OUR PRESENTERS:
Marsha Hudnall, MS, RD, CD
A registered dietitian nutritionist, Marsha Hudnall, has been a voice of reason and a thought leader for the last three decades in helping women move away from restrictive notions of food and health so that they can better adopt a sustainable approach to eating well.
She has spent the last three decades working to help women give up dieting rules and understand how to truly take care of themselves through mindful eating and living. Her mission is to help women learn to enjoy eating and living well, without worries about health and weight. She encourages women to embrace their love of food, which you might call being a foodie. If so, it’s appropriate because being a foodie means you pay attention when you eat -- a recipe made in heaven for eating well.
Since 1986, Marsha has been a part of Green Mountain at Fox Run, the Vermont women's retreat that pioneered the non-diet approach to health and healthy weights. An accomplished writer, she has written hundreds of articles for popular magazines, newsletters and professional journals, and has worked extensively on a national basis to produce curricula and pamphlets to educate the public about nutrition and about the impact of dieting and the diet mentality on eating behaviors, including binge eating and emotional eating.
Long active with several national professional associations, Marsha recently stepped down from the board of the Binge Eating Disorder Association in order to serve as the president of The Center for Mindful Eating.
You can find Marsha on Green Mountain's website, which features her writing in articles and on her blog A Weight Lifted. You can also reach her on Twitter @MarshaHudnall and on Green Mountain at Fox Run's Facebook page, or email her at Marsha@fitwoman.com.
