What do eating while watching TV, skipping meals, continuing to eat when full, and the results of the bottomless bowl study have in common? Susan Albers, PsyD, a clinical psychologist at Cleveland Clinic, and author of But I Deserve This Chocolate!, says they are signs of “mindless eating,” which presents a significant barrier to managing your weight and living a healthier life.
Dr. Albers maintains that improving your awareness of why and how you eat, as well as being conscious of what your body tells you throughout the day, will improve your relationship with food while minimizing your risk of obesity, chronic dieting and eating disorders.
The 92Y May Center for Health, Fitness and Sport will host Dr. Albers for a lecture on October 11 where she will discuss how to make the transition from mindless eating to mindful eating. You will learn how to stop your emotions from driving your food decisions, as well as heighten your awareness of the “food messages” your body sends to your brain.
