Were you ever part of the Clean Plate Club? Many of us grew up in households where we needed to finish all of the food plated in front of us. However, were we physically hungry for that amount of food or was it just a habit to clean the plate? The environment we live in has many external cues that may trigger overeating. The key is to find ways to disrupt the external appetite cues and rely on our internal hunger cues. Join us for this support group to learn ways to make mindful eating a daily part of your life where food is a source of nourishment and enjoyment. You will have time to explore your roadblocks for mindful eating and create an action plan for mastering mindfulness at each meal.
After this support group, participants will be able to:
- Identify their own ABC’s (antecedents, behaviors and consequences) related to food.
- Describe the difference between internal and external hunger cues.
- Determine their hunger and satiety cues.
- Understand how to eat mindfully.
