Why We Value Weight Neutral Diabetes Care: Am I Hungry? Mindful Eating Programs and Training answers

Question: Why do you value a weight-neutral approach to diabetes care? Answer: A weight-neutral approach to diabetes care reduces stigma and makes space for a more effective, sustainable approach to diabetes management. We have seen how individuals with a history of yo-yo dieting and type 2 diabetes suffer in diet-culture and need alternatives to restrictive eating so they can thrive with diabetes.

Question: Do you work only with clients?Answer: Am I Hungry? Mindful Eating Programs and Training offers non-diet, weight-neutral, mindfulness-based mindful eating resources for individuals and health professionals, including books, workshops, retreats, presentations, and professional training. We also offer free white papers that explain the research supporting a weight-inclusive approach.

Question: Why Mindful Eating?Answer: There are many individuals struggling with their eating, including those with diabetes, who are looking for a sustainable approach to dietary change and improved well-being. The Am I Hungry? Mindful Eating Cycle is an effective tool to shift decision-making from “what do I do” to “how do I feel?” The concepts and skills offered through our programs, books, and training guide participants to heal their relationship with food, so they are in charge of their choices rather than vacillating between feeling in control then feeling out of control.

Question: Are the programs at Am I Hungry? something that institutions or companies might use? Answer: Yes, we help organizations and corporations promote mindful well-being using engaging, positive, practical strategies via workplace wellness programs and keynote presentations.
