    About the Event

    Have you ever felt torn between the freedom that can be found in mindful eating and the looming reminders of the "restrictions" necessary to address your health goals? A balance between self-care and flexibility is the key to finding the “sweet spot” in mindful eating. Your approach can make the difference between feeling resentful or feeling empowered. Learn how autonomy and choice are essential elements in mindful eating and how to shift from an attitude of “being good” to one of “feeling good”. This workshop will set you on a journey toward creating your personal owner’s manual for your body by mastering mindfulness. Everyone truly can enjoy peace and health, simultaneously.

    Learning Objectives

    1. Examine your current eating style using a tool that measures self care verses flexibility

    2. Name the factors that promote intrinsic or value driven health behaviors.
    3. Develop the mindfulness strategies for creating an "owners manual" for your unique health needs.

        About the Presenter

        Megrette Fletcher is a pioneer in mindful eating. She provides easy to use resources and teaching materials that are HAES compliant to build strong client relationships and promote sustainable wellbeing. Training tools and programs are designed for dietitians, diabetes educators, nutritionist, coaches, health care professionals, educational institutions and wellness focused corporations.

        Megrette Fletcher became interested in applying mindfulness to food and eating after she began a daily meditation practice in 1999. Realizing the potential value of Mindful Eating, she teamed up with Fred Burggraf M.Ed, an author/publisher, and created Discover Mindful Eating, published in 2005. The concept of Mindful Eating was just beginning. Megrette began to dream of creating a multidisciplinary non-profit organization that would offer a clear set of principles to support professionals to include the concepts of Mindful Eating into new and existing health programs. In 2005, the conditions were right, and Jean Kristeller, PhD, researcher and creator of the MB-EAT program, and Dh. Amala, Director of Aryaloka Buddhist Retreat Center, gathered around a kitchen table to discuss creating The Center for Mindful Eating. With the help of founding board members Donald Altman, MA, Mark Blackwood, MD, Ron Thebarge, PhD, and Char Wilkins, LCSW, the Center for Mindful Eating launched its public website in January 2006. Today, The Center for Mindful Eating is an international non-profit that has brought the ancient wisdom of Mindful Eating to help address today’s eating concerns.

        Megrette Fletcher M.Ed., R.D., CDE is a registered dietitian, diabetes educator, and Mindful Eating expert. She is a graduate of the University of Rhode Island and received her master’s degree in nutrition education from Framingham State College. She began working with diabetes in 1994 and in 2000 obtained her CDE. In addition to writing and speaking, she continues to work as a diabetes educator in Dover NH.

        She has served many roles for The Center for Mindful Eating in the last 10-years, including 2013-2016 President. In 2016 Megrette gratefully passed this important role to Marsha Hudnall, MS, RD who is another pioneer in the mindful eating community.

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). Her book was named one of the top ten books of 2016 by Mindful.Org. Her newest book is Savor Every Bite: Mindful Ways to Eat, Love Your Body, and Live with Joy (New Harbinger, May 2021).

She completed a three-year Community Dharma Leader Training through Spirit Rock Meditation Center in California in January 2008 and has been a student of Buddhist meditation since 1998. She completed Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) teacher training from the Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Healthcare, and Society in Massachusetts in 2004.

          Her greatest passion is helping people find delicious ways to eat and move their bodies, while discovering greater meaning and purpose in life. She loves to play the piano, do yoga, hike in nature, eat fabulous food, and celebrate life with friends. She can be found anywhere by listening for her infectious laugh.
