Finding Your Healthy Weight

Marsha Hudnall, MS, RD | August 19, 2014

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.

March 21, 2016 | Jean Kristeller, Ph.D.

The Zen of Eating: Ancient Answers to Modern Weight Problems

April 23, 2015 | Ronna Kabatznick Ph.D.

Explore mindful eating, and its challenges, from a Buddhist perspective, specifically, the Four Noble Truths: The truth of suffering, the causes of suffering, that suffering can end and how to end it. These are universal truths for all of us, regardless of spiritual orientation, age, weight, sex, social status, etc. Everyone has hungers of the body and hungers of the heart. We may want to lose weight, limit sugar or be more mindful of what, when and how we eat. But if we don't understand what causes insatiable eating, these habits become even more out of control, which only fuels frustration, overeating and self-loathing. But there is a way out of this vicious cycle that can be understood within the framework of these Noble Truths.
