The Craving Change program is a “guide for changing your relationship with food”. The goal of this program is to learn and understand “Why” you eat the way you do.
The program is co- facilitated by a registered dietitian and a mental health educator. The intent of the workshop is to have participants:
- Reflect on why it is challenging to eat in a healthy way
- Determine their personal problematic eating triggers
- Learn a variety of strategies that they can experiment with to positively change their eating behaviours over the long term.
What to Expect
Over the course of the 6 week program (each class lasting 1 hour/week) will cover the following 4 topics:
- Why it’s hard to change – review the role of our environment, body and learned behaviours in our relationship with food.
- What needs changing – help uncover our problematic eating triggers.
- How to change – giving participants step by step instructions and strategies for change.
- Keep the change – providing tips for a healthier, lasting relationship with food.
