Do you crave certain foods?
Are there certain foods that seem to strongly impact how you feel?
Do you think about what you eat? All the time? Not at all?
Are you confused and overwhelmed by the food and diet advice everywhere?
Eating is hard! There is a lot of conflicting information about what’s the ‘right’ way to eat, what foods are ‘good’, and what foods are ‘bad’. A Google search will yield hundreds, if not thousands, of ‘experts’ telling you the best way to eat. But who is the true expert? You are! After all, you know your body best.
Over 6 weeks, you will become the expert on your body and your health. By the end of our time together, you will:
Become more aware of and be able to listen to your body
Identify key symptoms that tell you something’s out of balance
Understand why you’re craving certain foods and what to do about it
Identify your emotional and food triggers and what you can do to manage these triggers
Practice being in the present so that you can take control over what you eat and why
Develop a different perspective on food, eating, and feeling good
Understand what foods will nourish your body
We will use the book, “Nourishing Wisdom” by Marc David to guide our discussions. There will also be small take-home assignments to help grow your awareness of how food and eating impact your mind and body. As a group, we will support each other in this journey of self-discovery. Making change, and getting to know yourself, is so much easier with a group of like-minded individuals.
A paperback version of “Nourishing Wisdom” is available for separate purchase from Debra.
We will meet online for one hour on the following Fridays. You'll receive call-in information once you register.
