Hunger & Fullness - How Do We Know What is Enough?
The focus of this program is to explore strategies and learn skills based on the principles of “mindfulness” for losing weight, maintaining weight loss, and decreasing metabolic health problems. Mindless eating or eating when we are not physically hungry to manage our emotions or avoid dealing with stress is a part of life. Depending on the frequency and amount this can lead to weight gain, health problems, and decreased quality of life. Mindfulness skills, such as learning to identify and eat according to our physical signs of hunger and fullness, can help us to learn to interrupt these unhelpful habits or patterns, develop healthier relationships with food and our bodies, and improve our quality of life.
