As large numbers of people continue to struggle with eating and weight, it is increasingly evident that the now 50+-year-old advice of "eat less, exercise more" does not help most people adopt and sustain the behaviors that support healthy weights. This teleconference reviews fundamental issues that challenge individuals in their ability to do this, and illuminates the role of mindful eating in helping clients move toward a more sustainable health-centered approach.
* explain the benefit of changing the focus from weight to health to improve health behaviors and outcomes.
* list basic tenets of a health-centered approach to achieving and maintaining a healthy weight.
* articulate the role of mindful eating in a health-centered approach to achieving and maintaining a healthy weight.
