Filed under Intuitive Eating, Mindfulness, Self-Care

Graciously re-posted courtesy of ww.psychologytoday.com/blog/eating-mindfully The clock hits noon—that means its lunchtime. My co-worker brought cookies to work—I might as well eat one (or three).

Keep Your Eyes on Your Own Plate

Graciously re-posted from www.psychologytoday.com/blog/eating-mindfully While visiting Boston for a recent symposium on food addiction, I stayed overnight at a quaint bed and breakfast that offered homemade snacks in the evening.

Is there a real difference between mindful eating, intuitive eating or any other name internally-regulated eating goes by these days?  It’s an important question in a time when so many people are trying to recover from decades of diet thinking that led them to disordered eating, to the real detriment of their health and happiness.

Is Your Definition of Healthy Eating Keeping You From Doing It?

Have you sworn off dieting but still seem to struggle with healthy eating?  It could be the way you define the term. In the Redefining Healthy Eating class I teach at Green Mountain at Fox Run, I ask women what comes to mind when I say the words “healthy eating.”  While more and more frequently […]

My Personal Challenge: No Gym for One Year
