1/13/2016 - Intuitive Eating

Mark your calendars for Intutive Eating Class through Fairfield Continuing Education on February 9th and 16th from 7-9pm at Fairfield Ludlowe Middle School.

Based on the work of Evelyn Tribole, M.S., R.D. and Elyse Resch, M.S., R.D., and over 20 years of research, Intuitive Eating is a program that will help you to create a healthy relationship with food and rediscover the pleasures of eating...talents that you were born with but may have lost as a result of dieting and adopting other food rules over the years. Weight loss is not a goal of Intuitive Eating.  Instead it is a possible--but not guaranteed--side effect of normalizing your eating behavior over time. Please join us for this informative 2 week class that will leave you ready to discover a new relationship with eating. Refreshments will be provided. The book, INTUITIVE EATING, by Evelyn Tribole and Elyse Resch, can be purchased at the class for approximately $15.

Session 1:  Understand why dieting does not work for most people, learn to honor your body's signals of hunger and fullness and make peace with food and begin to enjoy eating again

Session 2:  Discover gentle nutrition and movement, treat yourself and your body with compassion and respect and integrate Intuitive Eating principles into your life
