If you attended The Anxiety Summit online during June, you may have learned some new information about how food and mood can affect one another.
Now in August there is a new online summit that will also provide information about mood and food, including how to stop emotional eating and successfully lose or manage weight. The Mindful Eating Summit takes place August 25-29, 2014 at www.mindfuleatingsummit.com/
You can sign up for the free summit by going to the website and entering your email address. Each presentation will be available during a specific time slot for 24 hours, and you’ll get more information about this in your email.
There are both videos and audio clips of the presentations. Each day there will be four to five presentations posted.
If you want to watch videos or listen to audio after the available time slots or after the days of the summit, the cost is $47.
After signing up, you will also receive a free ebook called “Emotional Eating Survival Guide.”
“The goal is to deliver practical, inspirational, cutting-edge, clinical techniques, and innovative approaches to many of our unique eating challenges – body image, nourishing ourselves, overeating, binge eating, disordered eating, fad dieting, nutrition-linked health conditions, and much more,” said Susan Albers, clinical psychologist at the Cleveland Clinic and the host of the first annual summit.
Albers has written six books on the subject, including “Eating Mindfully.”
So what exactly is mindful eating?
“Mindful eating is stopping when you are satisfied, avoiding overeating, finding ways to soothe and comfort yourself without food and to stop feeling guilty when you eat,” Albers said.
Mindful eating is not a diet. The concept teaches women how to eat instead of what to eat.
She said it does not take forever to learn these concepts. In her workshops she is able to help women start the process in about two minutes. She helps women stop multitasking while eating, and avoid mindless eating, aka zoning out, while eating a bag of chips in front of the TV.
