Join Megrette Fletcher, diabetes educator and co-author of Eat What You Love, Love What You Eat with Diabetes as she reviews how teaching clients about hunger can improve blood sugar control. In this 90-minute program participants will understand how hunger and hypoglycemia can overlap. Once explained, your clients now have the tools to differentiate between physical hunger and the desire to eat. Participants will have a chance to explore the six sense eating triggers and discover ways to share these with clients.
Curiosity is the key to helping clients unlock how hunger and fullness can relate to improved blood sugars. Using a scale specifically designed for a person with diabetes, you can spark interest in their overall diabetes care. Every health care professional has worked with clients that just don't present as expected. Maybe they don't feel hungry, or struggle sensing fullness - what then? Megrette will review how to complete a simple and effective body scan. This mini-meditation can help clients open up to mindful eating by developing the practice of listening to the body. During the presentation, Megrette will offer two role-play demonstrations, take your questions and help you bring these counseling ideas into your daily counseling practice.
