According to the National Eating Disorders Association (www.NationalEatingDisorders.org), Mindful Eating “helps you break free from routine eating habits by examining the thoughts, feelings and internal pressures that affect how and why you eat (or don’t eat)”. Blasius further explains that “Mindful Eating is valuable in many ways, including helping people choose food that is both good and pleasing to them by using all their senses, and also helping them gauge when they are really hungry and when they are full”. In addition to educating workshop attendees about Mindful Eating, Blasius will provide useful information about portion size and the role that plays in weight control.
“Please join us for this informative, FREE workshop on Monday, November 30, at McKenzie Health System, 120 Delaware St., Sandusky,” invites Blasius. For more information, contact Louise Blasius at 810-648-6181; to reserve your spot, contact Nina Barnett at 810-648-6127.
