Craving Change

Do you struggle with your eating?  Do you eat for comfort, out of habit, or in response to your emotions?

Craving Change is a four week workshop that focuses on the “why” of eating.  It can help you discover why you eat the way you do and why it is hard to change.

  • Become more aware of your own personal problematic eating triggers
  • Learn techniques that you can use for dealing with these triggers and for changing your eating behaviours
  • Learn strategies that will assist you in maintaining a long-term positive relationship with food
