The Complete 12-Session TAME Your Appetite Program

If you really want to embrace mindful eating, I recommend the complete TAME Your Appetite Self- Study Program, based on the current research and science from Dr. Jean Kristeller’s work at Indiana State University. This 12-session program teaches the practices and approaches of Mindfulness-Based Eating Awareness Training (MB-EAT). Based upon this NIH-funded research, the program addresses mindless and emotional eating and weight concerns by incorporating meditation and other mindful skills and techniques to foster mindful eating and living.

Through mindful eating practices, you will learn to pay attention to what your body really needs and why, how to experience the full pleasure and taste of food without overeating, and how to release the guilt and struggle so often associated with eating. Tools for Inner and Outer Wisdom will be taught to help you make informed, balanced, healthy and sustainable choices that can last a lifetime, while being truly nourished by food and other aspects of your life.

 

Program Specifics

The program is structured as a complete online MB-EAT program. Practices and topics include mindful meditation, eating exercises, eating meditations, guided visualizations, loving kindness and self-compassion practices, didactic instruction, role playing, tools, weekly home practices, and self-reflection to cultivate mindful awareness and a more balanced and positive relationship to eating and weight.
