This module is really 4 modules in one! SEE Your Eating Pattern, the 28 Day Mindful Eating Challenge, Take Command of Your Habits, and Create & Live the Alternatives.We use the term Eating Pattern to distinguish it from “diet” which has become synonymous with short-term changes that lead to short-term results! Taking Command of Your Eating Pattern is focused on creating SUSTAINABLE lifestyle modifications that support your wellness – body, mind, heart, and spirit!
SEEing your Eating Pattern is to support you in seeing why you eat what you eat and teach you new ways of seeing food. We discuss the Standard American Diet and it’s impact on our obese, sick population. We discuss your relationship to food and how it impacts what you eat and why. We how Sugar & Refined Carbohydrates impact your body negatively and how an eating pattern of healthy fats, proteins, and carbohydrates create optimal functioning of the body.
Most of us multi-task when eating. Mindful eating brings your focus back to the foods you are eating and the sensations you experience while eating them! Mindful eating has been shown to improve digestion, reduce overall intake, improve satisfaction and satiety with food, weight loss, improved blood sugar regulation, among other benefits.
To be human is to have habits and routines. By bringing these habitual patterns into our conscious awareness, we can stop being controlled by them. The power to take command of our habits arises from SEEing our habits, how pervasive and ingrained they are, and how they came to be! Then we can begin to take new actions and create new habits that promote our health and well-being! Eating Patterns are highly habitual, so this will be very valuable to SEE, Create, & Live the Alternative Eating Patterns!
