What are people saying about Kim and the mindful eating program for corporate wellness?
“Very successful program! . . . . This was a choice approach to eating which provided realistic and fabulous takeaways for the group . . . . understanding and awareness of the cues and the reasons why we eat and our feelings associated with those reasons . . . (and to) set much more realistic and kind boundaries . . . . definitely more creative than anything we have done in the past.”
– Mary Starr, Executive Vice President, The Starr Group

Why practice mindful eating for health and wellness? According to a neuroscientist writing for the New York Times:
I recommend mindful eating — paying attention to signals of hunger and fullness, without judgment, to relearn how to eat only as much as the brain’s weight-regulation system commands.
Relative to chronic dieters, people who eat when they’re hungry and stop when they’re full are less likely to become overweight, maintain more stable weights over time and spend less time thinking about food. Mindful eating also helps people with eating disorders like binge eating learn to eat normally. Depending on the individual’s set point, mindful eating may reduce weight or it may not. Either way, it’s a powerful tool to maintain weight stability, without deprivation.
