Craving Change

Program Type: Nutrition & Lifestyle
Description:

 

“I know what to eat but I just can’t seem to do it”

“I’m an emotional eater”

“I want more control over my eating”

 

If this sounds familiar, come to a Craving Change workshop and find out why you eat the way you do, why it’s hard to change your eating habits, and what you can do about it.

 

Craving Change is a 4 session educational program co-facilitated by our Registered Dietitian and Mental Health Counsellor that can help you develop a healthier relationship with food.  You will discover why you eat the way you do and learn to take steps to change your problematic eating habits.

 

This Workshop will help you:

  • Identify your own personal problematic eating triggers
  • Understand why it is so hard to change your eating habits
  • Learn many different strategies and techniques to change either your triggers or eating response
  • Develop a healthier relationship with food
  • Maintain your healthier eating habits

  

Saying “no” to temptation takes more than willpower, it takes “skillpower”. Learn new ways of thinking and behaving to help you change your problematic eating habits.
