Take charge of your food

Quitting emotional and mindless eating habits, creating balance and rediscovering the true joy of food might not be as hard as some might think.

The Wellness Programs Center is combining the benefits of an innovative non-diet program by offering a six-week workshop series for students that want to relearn how to eat the right amount of food and meet their needs in more productive ways other than eating.

This workshop series will give students the motivation and support of a fitness coach where they will learn how to stop obsessing about food, eating and their weight.

Participants will learn how to be in charge of eating instead of feeling out of control, how to eat the foods they love without overeating or feeling guilty, as well as increasing their metabolism by eating healthier without depriving themselves.

Participants will be learning material written by experts such as Dr. Michelle May, M.D., founder of Am I Hungry Inc., and author of EAT WHAT YOU LOVE, LOVE WHAT YOU EAT; Evelyn Tribole, M.S., R.D. and Elyse Resch, M.S., R.D., authors of INTUITIVE EATING and Geneen Roth, author of WOMEN FOOD AND GOD.

Some of the issues that will be discussed in these series are, how to be in charge-not in control, trust your body wisdom, making peace with food, what am I really hungry for, mindful eating and self care buffer zone.

The group workshops are scheduled to begin on Tuesday, Sept. 28, and will be held every Tuesday from noon to 1 p.m. in the Student Health Services conference room, SC 221. The cost is $35 for the entire workshop series.
