    About the Event

    People often ask about the difference between mindful eating and intuitive eating, as if knowing the answer would help them determine which practice will get the best results.

    Both the question and the underlying desire point to one of the main cognitive distortions people use that struggle with food and their bodies--namely, all-or-nothing, right or wrong, this or that. In my experience of teaching both mindful eating and intuitive eating, there are notable differences and similarities. I see them as kindred spirits with practices that complement and support each other. Knowing and understanding both can lead to a beautiful relationship with food and body, as well as to the rest of your life.

    In this webinar you will learn the principles of each practice, an expanded view of mindful eating through the lens of mindfulness itself, and how the skill of mindful awareness is the underlying key that unlocks the benefits of both.


    Learning Objectives

    1. List the 4 four foundations of mindfulness
    2. List the 10 principles of intuitive eating
    3. List 3 common misconceptions about mindful eating

    In 2007, she developed an empirically-validated mindful eating program called Eat for Life which helps people have a healthy relationship with food and their bodies—decreasing binge eating while increasing body image, mindfulness, and intuitive eating. She teaches her class live online over Zoom to professionals and the general public. She also travels nationally and internationally to teach mindful eating. 

    Dr. Rossy published the concepts from her program in a book entitled, The Mindfulness-Based Eating Solution: Proven Strategies to End Overeating, Satisfy Your Hunger and Savor Your Life (New Harbinger, July 2016).

      About the Event

      Join Wendy Busse, MSc, RD and your fellow TCME professional members as we discuss food sensitivity-restricted diet culture. The small group interaction will give you an opportunity to ask questions, discuss challenging cases, share your viewpoints, and get to know other professionals working in this field. Wendy will also share her theory on how the pervasive restricted diet messages create conditioned food sensitivities.


        About the Presenter

        Wendy is a registered dietitian from Alberta, Canada. She has worked in food sensitivity for over 25-years. Initially, her interest was the science of food allergy. As she started working in this area, she was drawn to understanding the mind-body connection and helping “grey” zone clients – individuals that do not fit neatly into any clinical practice guidelines and often fall through the cracks of our medical system. This led her on a journey to develop the Food Avoidance & Sensitivity Trap (FAST) model and the theory of conditioned food sensitivity. Currently, she is the director of the FAST Freedom Program. Wendy and her team help food sensitive clients make peace with food and expand their diet.
