Michelle May, MD has discovered that many people, women particularly, struggle with a difficult love-hate relationship with food. Eating can become a way to cope with stress, time pressure, competing priorities, distraction, and caring for others. In addition, in our food-abundant, diet-obsessed culture, eating is often mindless, consuming, and guilt-inducing. During this podcast, we will explore mindful eating: an ancient mindfulness practice with profound modern implications and applications.
We will talk about:
Why diets don’t work. How to tune into your body wisdom to guide your eating. How to recognize environmental and emotional triggers for overeating. Why exercise should never be used as punishment for eating. How to build a self-care buffer zone.
