Mindless and stress-related eating, emotional eating, disordered eating patterns and obesity have become so common in our culture. Through mindful eating practices, you will learn to pay attention to your eating patterns by learning what your body really needs and why, how to experience the full pleasure and taste of food without overeating, and how to release the guilt and struggle.
Dr. Neil Levitsky (Psychiatrist) will guide you through practices and topics:
mindfulness meditation and mindful eating exercises
discussion of nutrition and exercise
how to reduce binge eating, overeating
loving kindness and self- compassion practices
exploration of craving and emotional eating
