Judy’s Story: How mindful eating helps with the holidays

Judy had struggled with yo-yo dieting for many years before she was introduced to the Am I Hungry? Mindful Eating Program by her family physician.

Before that, she thought she just didn’t have willpower. “What I didn’t get for a long time is why I was eating. I would eat if I was bored, if I was frustrated, if I was stressed. I would eat things when I was just thirsty.”

Nothing is off limitsDuring the holidays, Judy recognized the surprising power of eating what she loves and loving what she eats without depriving herself.”I enjoy food! I like to eat! I have a sweet tooth.” With Am I Hungry?, she realized that she could still eat her favorite foods. “I do not ever anymore beat myself up for anything I’ve eaten.”

Judy describes an experience with mindful eating at a Thanksgiving buffet right after she started the program.

“I chose the things I wouldn’t normally have available, and things I really, really liked. I passed up things that were just mediocre. I totally enjoyed what I picked. I went to the dessert table where they had an array of these two bite things. I didn’t feel stuffed and miserable. I had enough to eat, and I enjoyed what I ate. That’s how I operate now!”

Listen as Am I Hungry? founder, Dr. Michelle May talks with Judy about how she has used mindful eating techniques to manage her eating during the holidays – and change her life!
