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.
