What Is Mindful Eating

You may be familiar with the term 'mindfulness,' but are you aware this can be applied to our eating habits? Mindful eating uses the act of mindfulness or being present, to help overcome eating problems in our increasingly busy lives. The goal is to shift focus from external thinking about food to exploring (and enjoying) the eating experience. It is not a diet and is focused around developing a new mindset around food.

How Does Mindful Eating Help

Mindful eating helps you distinguish between emotional and physical hunger. It also increases your awareness of food-related triggers and gives you the freedom to choose your response to them.

You Have Heard Your Clients Say...

  • "I can't stop eating, and it is making my blood sugars spike."
  • "I've lost control of my blood sugars and hope that I can change!"
  • "I don't know if I am hungry or full!"
  • "I want to enjoy eating."
  • "I am so sick of dieting."
  • "I don't know where to start because "I've never been able to stick to a plan."
  • "I want to be healthy without focusing on my weight."

Help your clients step into the present moment and start the journey of awareness, self-acceptance, and mindfulness. This coaching session will help you synthesize your learning and identify how to bring your mindfulness training into your current practice. Together with your peers, this coaching session will identify opportunities and techniques to welcome the present moment with empathy for your client, allowing them to disrupt habitual patterns of thinking and acting.
