When you sign up for a course with Eating Empowered, you have access to a board certified psychologist and a licensed registered dietitian. During this Healthy Living 101 course we are covering:

  • Developing a Health Vision: get really clear about why making changes to your diet is important to you.
  • What to Eat: a review of the components of a healthy meal, portion control and the importance of choosing good quality foods.
  • When to Eat: guidance in regards to the timing of your meals and snacks.
  • How to Eat: education about how our body digests foods and how to harness that information to feel full and satisfied after eating.
  • Mindful Eating: teaching you how to tune into your body and make eating a pleasurable experience.
  • Cognitive distortions: how to eliminate the negative thoughts running through your head that sap your motivation.

  1. Choose a time each week to complete the material. Make it a priority and stick to it.
  2. Complete the worksheets and food logs that are provided in a thoughtful manner.
  3. Call in to the conference call each week. Participate by asking questions and seeking/giving support to others.
  4. Comment at least once per week in the module, and respond to the comments of others.
