Craving Change

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.
