Eat for Life

Eat for Life is an online 10-week mindfulness-based intuitive eating program designed to help you develop a loving and kind relationship with your food and your body. Participants are instructed in the practice of mindfulness (being present with kindness and compassion) as a tool to access their inner wisdom about what, when, why, and how much to eat. Guided by the knowledge that diets don’t work in the long term, the program teaches participants how to enjoy the food that’s both tasty and nutritious, care for the body they inhabit, and create a more meaningful, joyous life.

Research on the program, published in the American Journal of Health Promotion, demonstrated that participants had significant improvements in comparison to a control group as follows:

  • Increased mindfulness
  • Greater appreciation for their bodies
  • Increased intuitive eating (eating based on hunger cues instead of emotional and environmental cues)
  • Decreased binge eating and other problematic eating behaviors

How does Eat for Life online work?

We will meet as a group each week live on a platform called Zoom. You can take the class from the comfort of your own home and still engage in a lively, meaningful group learning experience and exchange. While of course it’s not the same as being in the same room with people, it comes pretty close (see Zoom training videos here). Zoom offers the possibility to meet with the whole group but also for small break-out groups.

A high-speed internet connection is recommended. Computers, tablets, and phones work, but keep in mind that with the smaller screen of a tablet or phone the images of your class friends will be very small. Your device needs an in-build camera and either an in-build microphone or you need a microphone to plug in.

In addition, I will be recording the sessions so that if you have to miss one then you will be able to see the entire session later.

Cancellation policy: A full refund is given up to 4 days before the start of the Eat for Life class. 75% of the full price is refunded if notice is given after the first class, 50% after the second class. There is no refund after class 3.
