If you eat when you’re not really hungry and keep eating long past the point of fullness, you might be interested in an 8-week course that starts Feb. 3. Local dietitian Kelley Raetzsch will lead the sessions, which are focused on helping people learn to eat more mindfully.
The course — called “Am I Hungry?” — is based on the mindful-eating approach created by Dr. Michelle May, an author, physician and former yo–yo dieter. The upcoming classes will be held Thursdays, from 10 to 11:30 a.m., at 3300 Bourbon St. in the Bowman Center.
The cost is $250, Raetzsch said, and includes workshop materials. For more details, about the program, visit amihungry.com (where you can take a quiz that helps you understanding your eating habits).
