When Food Controls You
Are you constantly thinking about food? Counting calories, macros, and the time before your next meal? Do you obsess about food and wonder if you’re addicted? Are your thoughts consumed by what you should or shouldn’t be eating, staying on track with your diet, fighting off cravings? It’s all so preoccupying. . . and exhausting.
It doesn’t have to be this way.
You can transform your relationship with food. You can get off the diet roller coaster, end emotional eating, and finally eat in peace. You can make food less of a focus in your life - experiencing food as something that nourishes you and brings you pleasure - but that doesn’t take up prime real estate in your brain.
If these are your goals, this group is for you.
Eat in Peace Group
When you eat in peace, you can avoid passing down your food issues to your children. You can focus on what you value most. You can show up better in your relationships and for yourself.
Eat in Peace** is a six-session group that draws from DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy), ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy), IE (Intuitive Eating), and HAES (Health at Every Size)Ⓡ. It encourages participants to explore their values and their relationship with food and dieting; to learn about hunger, fullness, and satiety; to cope with their feelings without using food; to understand the real relationship between health and weight; to pursue joyful physical activity; and to consider, but stop stressing about, nutritional information and health.
*Eat in Peace is not intended as a weight-loss workshop. In fact, those who are actively seeking weight loss are likely not appropriate participants for this group.
**Eat in Peace is available to residents of NY, FL, and CA.
