2020-2021 Mindful Eating Program

though bubble with foods - Mindful Eating"Mindful Eating" is a 12-week program involving Facebook or text messaging in order to provide you with the knowledge and skills of basic nutrition and mindful eating behaviors to be more aware of what you eat to help improve your diet quality and overall health!

This program is an online/texting program designed to educate as well as support, encourage, and facilitate discussion as an effort to raise mindfulness about what foods are being eaten. If interested, you will be asked to participate in a research study to evaluate the effectiveness of different approaches to prevent mindless eating!

What you will receive:

1. Daily online lessons, sent through either a private Facebook page or text message based on weekly topics to help you learn how to eat more mindfully.

2. Weekly motivational graphic pictures.

3. Weekly poll questions that relate to the topic of the week to increase engagement.
