Description: In Intuitive Eating with Diabetes participants who struggle with their relationship with food and the emotional impact of managing diabetes will learn Intuitive Eating and Mindfulness skills. This class is a practical mind-body approach that is intended to help participants create a healthy relationship with food, mind and body. Intuitive Eating is a nutrition philosophy based on the premise that becoming more in touch with the body’s signals of hunger, fullness and satisfaction, are a more effective way to manage eating and overall health than following a strict diet plan. Mindfulness meditation and relaxation exercises are practiced throughout the length of the group and help participants remain in the present moment and learn stress reduction techniques.
