About the Event

Mindfulness and Mindful Eating are on the rise and it is wonderful that these concepts are getting more attention. However, as more people are introduced to these practices, there is often a misunderstanding of what Mindful Eating actually is. 

This webinar will define Mindful Eating and its main characteristics so as to clarify some common misconceptions. It will also explore how Mindful Eating is often confused with similar approaches such as Intuitive Eating. 

Learning Objectives

  1. Define mindful eating 
  2. Distinguish between mindful eating and intuitive eating 
  3. Understand what is not mindful eating
