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 group discussion, hands-on eating experiences and basic nutrition physiology.
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 $52 per 90 minute session, plus a one-time $15 materials fee. These classes are led by Alexa Sparkman, MA, RDN, LD. Classes will be held every Tuesday from 6:00-7:30 PM. Fall classes begin September 10, 2019. Registration is open. Space is limited and the group is almost full. Register today to secure your place.
