This Mindful Eating Support Community will guide, support, and encourage you along your life-changing journey to freedom from the bondage of dieting, shame, and obsession with food, no matter where you are in the process. (To learn more about mindful eating why Am I Hungry? founder Dr. Michelle May started this Mindful Eating Support Community, check out these videos!)
We recognize that you are all in different places in this process so we created three different levels to meet your specific needs. So whether you are brand new to mindful eating or simply working on integrating these powerful concepts into your life, you will find a level that is perfect for you!
What is included in the Mindful Eating Support Community?
Depending on which level is right for where you are right now, you will have access to some, or all, of the following support tools:
Am I Hungry? Online Mindful Eating Program
Using the most creative and efficient way to learn, these eight interactive online workshops and Eat What You Love, Love What You Eat chapter downloads will guide you through the Mindful Eating Cycle step-by-step!
- how to tell when you are in an Instinctive Eating, Overeating, or Restrictive Eating Cycle
- how to read your hunger and fullness signals to guide when and how much to eat
- the three questions to ask yourself for making the perfect food choice every time
- how to eat the foods you love without guilt or bingeing (really!)
- how to get optimal enjoyment and satisfaction every time you eat
- what your options are when you feel like eating but you aren’t even hungry
- what your triggers are for overeating, and what to do about them
- what to do when you overeat (and you will because that is part of normal eating!)
- how to use your energy to build a self-care buffer zone
- how to build a great big life you love!
Monthly Group Q&A Call
During this monthly one-hour group call, we will answer your questions and help you sort through the challenges that keep you stuck. You can ask your questions live or send them in advance. You’ll also learn vicariously from the challenges other community members are facing.
Monthly Skill-Building Session
In addition to all of the essential topics that are already part of our Mindful Eating Program, we’ll choose an additional topic for a deep dive with the Community each month. These topics will be designed to build your skills and will be chosen based on the challenges community members share, such as stress management, body acceptance, managing your emotions, and so on.
Private Support Community
You will have access to a private Support Community with others who “get you” because they are struggling with similar issues. In addition to the wisdom and support you’ll receive from other Community members, do our best to guide you through this process. Depending on the most convenient option for you, you can use our password protected Member Forum and/or our new “secret” Mindful Eating Support Community Facebook group. For privacy, only those who are currently in the Community will be able to see and respond to your posts.
Individual Mindful Eating Coaching
Working one-on-one with a coach can accelerate your progress and help you apply the Am I Hungry? principles to transform your life. Depending on which Support Community Level you choose, you’ll get either two 30-minute sessions each month with our founder, Michelle May, MD, or 10% off any Coaching package.
You’ll have our Mindful Eating Virtual Coach, a private journal, inspirational emails, and other support tools at your fingertips! Community members also get 10% off of our books, workbooks, toolkits, and companion cards. Levels 1 and 2 receive 10% off any of our Retreats and Training–a savings that quickly pays for your membership!

Take a look at the descriptions of your three options below then compare them in the table at the bottom. Decide which level you are at right now then simply click on the button below to join. (You can change levels or cancel at any time!)
Level 1 – Committed
Level 1 is our highest level of support. This level is for you if you are committed to resolving your eating challenges and building a positive relationship with food and want the support of a personal coach to guide you through the process. In addition to everything included in Level 2, Level 1 features two private one-on-one sessions with Michelle May, MD each month.
Level 2 – Connected
Level 2 is perfect if you are new to the Am I Hungry? mindful eating approach, or need a refresher. It features our new online Mindful Eating Program which lays the essential foundation you need using our proprietary Mindful Eating Cycle (includes 8 online workshops and Eat What You Love, Love What You Eat chapter downloads). Levels 1 and 2 also provide a monthly group Q&A call with founder, Dr. Michelle May and a monthly skill-building webinar to help you address your most difficult eating challenges. All levels provide you with a connection to others so you can practice your new skills in a supportive community.
Level 3 – Continuing
Level 3 is for you if you have already participated in an Am I Hungry? program (such as a Mindful Eating Online program above, or a workshop, retreat, workplace wellness program, or self-paced program) and want additional support as you expand your mindful eating skills. In addition to the private Support Community, you have the monthly skill-building webinar to deepen your understanding and application of your mindfulness skills. (Note: Level 3 is not intended for people new to this approach! There are many essential skills taught in the Mindful Eating Program that are necessary before moving to Level 3. When you enroll, please state what program you participated in previously, including where and approximately when.)
