Managing Emotional Eating Online Course
Does food rule your life, and you want to take your life back?
Are you constantly thinking about food?
Do you “know what you should do, but just can’t do it?”
Do you feel like you’re eating all your emotions?
Do you want to stop fighting your body?
Food is an important part of our lives. Food works to calm us when we’re stressed, soothe our loneliness, celebrate our happy times. We need to create a relationship with food that supports us through all of the wonderful parts of our lives and drop the ways it isn’t working for us. We can stop the cycle of trying to restrict and artificially control our eating, only to later binge or feel out of control. To stop feeling frustrated, disappointed and guilty, and instead to feel safe, free and supported
Our online course is facilitated by Jessica Begg. Jessica Begg is a Registered Dietitian that has been working in the area of disordered eating for almost 15 years. Her work continues with helping those that feel like their eating is out of control. She supports people who want to quit dieting and fighting with their body. She will show you how to develop an enriching relationship with both your body and the food you eat.
What you’ll Learn in the Online Course
We will unpack weight-bias and fat-phobia within our culture, our health-care system and ourselves. We will explore how it impacts how we feel in our bodies and how we eat. You will learn the science of what a typical body needs but also, and more importantly, how to understand what your own body needs. We will also explore how food and emotions get linked together and how to create a way that you can love the food, share food with others, and still feel like you’re giving your body what it needs.
You will become a more mindful and intuitive eater. We will give you the skills to develop a mind-set regarding eating that makes sense for you. You will also gain practical strategies to manage emotional eating.
