Make Peace with Food, Reject the Diet Mentality (WED258-64)


with Elise Tofias Phillips

Calendar Oct 17, 2022 at 6 pm

Learn Ways to Promote Healthy Eating by Trusting and Honoring Your Hunger and Fullness

Do you want to make peace with food? Are you tired of dieting? Are you ready to stop thinking about food and your body all the time? Learn how to reject the diet mentality, avoid the diet - weight - gain cycle, understand your hunger and fullness, select and take pleasure in food again, and accept your body, at any size. The goal of these sessions are to support awareness of hunger and fullness, start a reflective process on eating behaviors, and practice what you have learned. There are 10 Intuitive Eating Principles, supported by research and practical implications. Each principle is a wonderful guide to making peace with food. We will explore, learn, and discuss 2 principles each session, and bring it all together in session 6.  

This is not a weight loss course. The facilitator is not a dietitian, but is a certified Intuitive Eating Counselor, through Intuitive Eating Pros. 

Course Format
Take this course from the comfort of your home or office! This course is offered remotely with scheduled (live) Zoom sessions. 

Important Note

Exact class dates and times will be announced soon. Please add yourself to the Wait List, and you will be contacted once the dates and times are determined for Fall 2022.
