Overcoming Mind-Hunger


The Overcoming Mind-Hunger Program works to enhance recovery from binge eating disorder, bulimia or emotional eating issues by helping clients change their relationship with food. Overcoming Mind-Hunger addresses energy balance, management of true physical hunger and body acceptance. Once a normal healthy attitude about food emerges, decisions about weight loss or gain can be addressed.


The Foundation Group


This 15-week psychoeducational series is for those who are new to the idea of changing relationship with food. Each class is designed to develop personal awareness as well as genuine understanding of why we eat for reasons other than true physical hunger. Classes include hands-on eating experiences, grocery store trips and basic nutrition physiology.


Topics Explored:


That "need" for chocolate: How food can impact brain chemistry and blood sugar.

Emotional eating: Why saying no to favorite foods and eating to suppress feeling is often destructive.

How to break the "fat thought" cycle and build self-confidence

Take back control: How to implement a simple four step CALM plan to cope with emotions and cravings.


Each class in the group is $50 per 90 minute session, plus a one-time $15 materials fee. These classes are led by Carly Reed Janak, RDN, LD. Classes will be held every Monday from 6:00-7:30 PM beginning January 22, 2018.


The Skills Development Group


This 10-week psychoeducational series effectively complements the initial foundation course. Once participants understand why they reach for food and have insight into the mechanics of mindful eating, these classes help develop the skills necessary for successful change.


Topics Explored:


How to observe yourself and others rationally and objectively

Anxiety: Techniques to reduce tension and cope with worries

How to interpret physical body experiences to gain important information

Uncover possibilities: Learn how to open up to different choices to achieve your goals


Each class in the group is $50 per 80 minute session. These classes are led by Alexa Sparkman and will be held every Thursday from 5:30-6:50 PM beginning January 25, 2018.
