Women's Intuitive Eating Workshop

Date: Friday, July 13, 2018

Time: 7:00 PM

Location: MCC Cafe Area

Join us for a workshop about diet culture and intuitive eating led by registered Dietitian and MCC Wellness Group Leader Char-Lee Cassel. We will discuss how diet culture worships thinness and equates it to health and moral virtue, promotes weight loss as a means of attaining higher status, and demonizes certain ways of eating while elevating others. We will challenge the idea that we have to earn your worth and value by following laws and regulations and achieving a specific body type or a certain level of health. Lastly, we will explore
Intuitive Eating (a personal process of honoring your health by paying attention to the messages of your body and meeting your physical and emotional needs) and spend some time putting it into practice. Come ready to rediscover the pleasure of eating and practice your mindful eating skills!
