Provides necessary structure using the Mindful Eating Cycle
The format of the training follows the Am I Hungry? Mindful Eating Cycle to progressively build awareness of why, when, what, how, and how much you eat, and where you invest your energy. The Mindful Eating Cycle is a practical decision-making model that provides the necessary structure for you and your clients or patients to recognize and resolve problematic eating behaviors.
Mindfulness is simply awareness of the present moment without judgment. Guiding your clients and patients to become more aware of their physical state, thoughts, feelings, and actions in the here and now not only helps them better understand why they do what they do, it gives them the opportunity to choose their actions (response-ability) rather than continue to react out of habit (re-act out the past). With mindful eating, instead of trying to stay in control then subsequently feeling out of control, individuals learn to be in charge of their decisions.
Whether you call it intuitive eating, mindful eating, or the non-diet approach, Am I Hungry? utilizes a non-restrictive methodology that promotes the fearless enjoyment of food without restriction, deprivation, or guilt.
Consistent with a Health at Every Size® paradigm
Am I Hungry? is a weight neutral approach that focuses on sustainable lifestyle changes. (While participants may lose weight through this process, we consider it a possible side-effect of healing their relationship with food and their body, not the primary reason to participate in the program.)
Adaptable to clients and patients with different needs
Am I Hungry? trainings utilize a variety of adult-learning methods to keep clients and patients curious, engaged, and evolving. The training content employs a balance of auditory, visual, and kinesthetic techniques that compliment a range of learning styles and each session is designed to be highly interactive and experiential. The flow of the training sessions from one to the next is logical and progressive, designed to help you inspire changes in behavior, increase self-efficacy of your clients and patients, and promote autonomous decision-making that is respectful of individuals’ preferences, lifestyle, and experiences.
