Eat What You Love, Love What You Eat with Diabetes
After receiving a diagnosis of prediabetes or diabetes, you may believe that the days of eating what you love are over. Between making lifestyle changes, monitoring your blood glucose levels, and preventing complications, it’s only natural to feel overwhelmed or scared.
The good news is that you can take charge of your diabetes self-management without deprivation or guilt by learning to use the Mindful Eating Cycle to guide you. Eat What You Love, Love What You Eat with Diabetes (Second Edition) is a non-restrictive, mindful approach to thriving with diabetes. This book will help you discover how eating and physical activity affect your blood sugar so you can make decisions that support your good health without sacrificing the foods you love.
This book builds on the principles in Michelle May’s Eat What You Love, Love What You Eat to help readers with prediabetes or diabetes reduce their anxiety about diabetes self-management. This four-part system helps readers think, nourish, care, and live with diabetes to discover optimal health and the vibrant life they crave.
Eat What You Love, Love What You Eat with Diabetes: A Mindful Eating Program for Thriving with Prediabetes or Diabetes – Second Edition is a great resource for health professionals, individuals, and groups wishing to apply mindful eating concepts to diabetes self-management. This book is also a wonderful complement to the Am I Hungry? Mindful Eating Program for participants with diabetes, pre-diabetes, or metabolic syndrome.
Am I Hungry? Mindful Eating for Diabetes Online
with Michelle May, M.D. and Megrette Fletcher, MEd, RD, CDE
Does your schedule, lifestyle, or location make it difficult for you to participate in diabetes education? Are you (way!) overdue for a diabetes management tune-up? Does managing your diabetes feel like a diet instead of a flexible, enjoyable, healthy lifestyle? Do you prefer to learn at your own pace in a setting that is familiar and comfortable?
This self-paced online program, facilitated by Michelle May, M.D. (founder of Am I Hungry?) and Megrette Fletcher MEd, RD, CDE (co-founder of The Center for Mindful Eating), will guide you through a step-by-step process for understanding how to listen to and understand your “inner expert” and put you in charge of your eating and self-care decisions. The Am I Hungry? Mindful Eating for Diabetes Online Program uses the same processes and includes the same great resources and materials you would have in one of our in-person workshops (below), but allows you to progress through this life-changing material at a pace that works for you.
