Mindful Eating can help you overcome years of yo-yo dieting which might have caused you to lose touch with your body’s inner harmony. We are all born with an innate ability to maintain a healthy weight and to know what food our bodies need to stay healthy. You might have lost this ability over the years for a number of reasons.
Mindful Eating helps you to become aware of the eating habits that are making you unhealthy and unhappy and gently helps you to change – without judgement and criticism. You will slowly gain the natural wisdom you were born with to only eat when you are hungry, stop when you are full and maintain a healthy weight. The beauty of Mindful Eating is that these changes you make, and the weight lost, will be lasting, unlike dieting which often leads you onto a diet / binge cycle and causes your weight to fluctuate.
I’m qualified in Nutritional Therapy and to teach the MB-EAT program (Mindfulness Based Eating Awareness Training). I’ve experienced the effects of the diet cycle first-hand, having yo-yo dieted for many years which eventually developed into an eating disorder. I found peace with food, eating and my weight through Mindful Eating. This knowledge and experience helps me to assist my clients that experience similar disordered eating patterns.
The workshop ‘mindful eating’ taught me how to listen to my own body instead of eating because it’s time to eat, because the smell of food is so good or because someone else is forcing me to take cake on a birthday. Bronwen inspired me to listen and be kind to myself. The calm and friendly manner of providing guidance is characteristic for Bronwen and I highly appreciated this. Thanks! I still experience the benefits of the insights you gave me and as a dietician I share it with my clients.Alyanne Barkmeijer
I had never heard of Mindful Eating. Bronwen invited me to join the workshop. I was interested and gave it a chance. Bronwen had made a mix of the history of Mindful eating, some exercises and, the most important piece, ‘no judging’. There is no right and wrong, just explore. This first touch of Mindful Eating and a reading list from Bronwen made me more and more enthusiastic about this approach to eating habits. Now, I use it every day in my work as a dietician. Thanks so much for sharing your vision, knowledge and experience!Eline Berger
It is clear Bronwen has an innate understanding of diet and nutrition, plus the mental-emotional link many people experience with food and eating. Bronwen also engages in regular study and research to stay up-to-date with developments in the field. As such she provides safe and effective guidance to anybody looking to increase their own knowledge and integrate a healthy approach to food in their own lives.Tom Sheehy
