    Stress and Binge Eating,

    Mindfulness-based Intervention, Effects, and Metabolic Health


    Presented by Rachel M. Radin, PhD and Elissa Epel, PhD

    Stress and binge eating contribute to poor metabolic health, and may therefore be potential intervention targets. Mindfulness training may reduce stress and binge eating. We aimed to understand the role of stress and binge eating in metabolic health, and whether mindfulness may buffer these associations. 

    Those with greater stress and binge eating may reduce their risk for metabolic decline by receiving mindfulness training. Future obesity interventions should consider tailoring treatment towards trait-level characteristics, such as binge eating. 

    Rachel Radin, PhD, is a Postdoctoral Research Scholar at the UCSF Department of Psychiatry, Center for Health and Community. She is also a Licensed Clinical Psychologist in the state of California. Her research interests include clarifying the biopsychosocial processes that contribute to eating behavior and metabolic health in adults.

    She received an F32 National Research Service Award (NRSA) from the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH) to investigate the impact of a mindfulness intervention (SHINE trial) on stress-related eating and endocrine and autonomic profiles of stress reactivity.

    Rachel aims to ultimately develop complementary and integrative health interventions to improve the health of individuals with obesity and other healthrelated conditions. 


    Elissa Epel, Ph.D, is a Professor in the Department of Psychiatry, at University of California, San Francisco. Her research aims to elucidate mechanisms of healthy aging, and to apply this basic science to scalable interventions that can reach vulnerable populations. She is the Director of the Aging, Metabolism, and Emotions Center, and the Consortium for Obesity Assessment, Study, & Treatment, (COAST), and Associate Director of the Center for Health and Community.  She studies psychological, social, and behavioral pathways underlying chronic psychological stress and stress resilience that impact cellular aging. She also studies the interconnections between stress, addiction, eating, and metabolic health.

    Her research has been featured in venues such as TEDMED, NBC’s Today Show, CBS’s Morning Show, 60 minutes, National Public Radio, New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Wisdom 2.0, Health 2.0, and in many science documentaries. She co-authored "The Telomere Effect" (2017) with Elizabeth Blackburn, a NYT bestseller under the category of Science.

    Mindful Eating at Work


    PRESENTED BY LYNN ROSSY, PHD


    Tuesday March 20,12:00 PM EST, (time zone converter)


    Free and Open to all, Donations welcomed!

    Most workplaces are not conducive to eating mindfully. In fact, the current way of doing business is to sit at our desks for eight hours without even getting up for lunch away from the computer. The toll this takes on our minds and bodies is huge. In fact, not exercising and eating unhealthily are linked with large reductions in productivity at work.

    In addition, there is no evidence that coercive or financially-based wellness programs focused on weight issues (i.e. weight loss programs) work to improve eating by employees. But ample evidence exists that they are not only morale-reducing and an expensive distraction from the business of business, but result in negative health outcomes.

    In this webinar, you will learn to recognize some of the common problems in eating mindfully at work, learn tips for becoming a more mindful eater, and learn strategies for creating a healthy food environment for all your employees.

    Lynn Rossy, Ph.D., is an author and health psychologist who specializes in offering mindfulness-based interventions for eating, stress, and work-life balance. She became the Director of Integrated Wellness at Veterans United after spending much of her career at the University of Missouri System.

    She developed an empirically validated mindfulness-based intuitive eating program called Eat for Life which helps people have a healthy relationship with food and their bodies—decreasing binge eating while increasing body image, mindfulness, and intuitive eating. She published the concepts from the program in a book entitled, The Mindfulness-Based Eating Solution (New Harbinger, July 2016).

    Her greatest passion is helping people find delicious ways to eat and move their bodies, while discovering greater meaning and purpose in life.

    Eating Disorders and Disordered Eating Habits:

    Finding balance through mindful eating

    Presented by Caroline Baerten, MA, RD

    For several decades the interventions for eating disorders (AN, BED, BN) were dominated by a behavioral cognitive approach based on scientific studies using this angle. In the past ten years there has been a new wave in research: mindfulness and compassion-based interventions are receiving more attention. Along with this, mindful eating has become an effective tool for patients on the spectrum of restrictive eating and binge eating.

    In this two-part webinar series, we will discuss and practice different mindfulness, mindful eating and compassion-based exercises which benefit people with eating disorders and those with unbalanced eating habits. These meditations will be offered as a home assignment after the first session and practiced on a daily basis throughout the following week. It is recommended that health professionals only offer mindfulness exercises if they practice these skills and embody mindful living themselves.

    In part one of the series, we offer a framework that will provide participants with a better understanding of eating disorders from mindful eating perspective, a resume of up-to-date research, the preliminaries to work with patients with eating disorders, and the benefits.

    In the second part of the series, there is time for sharing and an opportunity to learn from each other what they’ve noticed in the past week. There will be further deepening of the mindful eating-based model for individuals with eating disorders (working with resistance, self-criticism, shame, difficult emotions). 

    Caroline Baerten is the founder of MeNu, Centre for Mindful Eating and Nutrition, in the heart of Europe (Brussels).

    She works as a Mindfulness-based nutritionist/RD, integrative psychotherapist and is also a qualified chef. She is the first certified Mindful Eating, Conscious Living teacher (ME-CL) worldwide and offers additionally Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction and Mindful Self-Compassion courses to her clients.

    Since 2012 she has created an international platform for mindful eating teachers in Europe. In her institute, mindful eating training programs are facilitated for European healthcare professionals and mentoring in mindful eating is offered through e-coaching.

    Engaging Resistance:

    A Mindful Approach

    Resistance arises during any process of change. Wherever there are deeply held beliefs and habitual thoughts and behaviors, there will always be ambivalence about true transformation. This is especially true in the case of thoughts and behaviors related to food, eating, and our bodies.

    Rather than viewing resistance as a problem, however, it can be seen as an essential teacher and ultimately part of the transformation. Further, we will explore how mindfulness practices can support our ability to engage resistance, both our own and that of our clients, by helping us re-frame how we see it and how we work with it in an ongoing way.

    In recent years, more and more people worldwide have turned to bariatric surgery to treat medical problems like type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and sleep apnea that may be associated with weight. Many people who seek bariatric surgery struggle with emotional eating, binge eating, body image distress, and other eating disorder symptoms that are not resolved by bariatric surgery.

    Mindful eating approaches can help those who are planning to undergo surgery or who have already undergone surgery, to develop a more balanced, peaceful relationship with food and eating. In this webinar, we will briefly review bariatric surgery, the typical ways that bariatric surgery procedures impact eating, and how mindful eating skills and practices can be successfully adopted by people undergoing bariatric surgery.

    Dr. Susan Wnuk, PhD., C. Psych, is a psychologist at the University Health Network Bariatric Surgery Program in Toronto where she provides clinical care to pre and post-bariatric surgery patients and conducts research.

    Her current areas of interest are mindfulness, emotion regulation, and the effectiveness of behavioural interventions for bariatric surgery patients. She is involved in research projects investigating psychosocial predictors of outcome in bariatric surgery patients and the effectiveness of various therapies for this population.

    Prior to joining the Bariatric Surgery Program in 2010, she worked in hospital-based eating disorder and borderline personality disorder programs. She facilitates workshops for professionals and presents at research conferences.

    Dr. Wnuk holds an academic appointment at the University of Toronto Department of Psychiatry at the level of Assistant Professor.
