Using Mindful Eating to Improve Diabetes Management

Putting Principles into Practice

Date: Tuesday, April 17, 2012
Time: 1:00 – 2:00 pm EST (12pm CST/11am MST/10am PST)
Continuing Education: RD, DTR: 1 (Level 2) CPE credit hour
Format: Webinar (Internet-based slide presentation with audio)
Cost: There is no cost for this program, but registration is required.

Program Overview:

In this program, Mindful Eating practitioners Michelle May, MD and Megrette Fletcher, M.Ed., R.D., CDE explore the principles of the ancient concept of mindful eating and how putting these principles into practice can improve diabetes self-management. The program will explore the six decision points in the Mindful Eating Cycle (Why do I eat? When do I eat? What do I eat? How do I eat? How much do I eat? and Where do I invest my energy?), and discuss how using this model with prediabetic and diabetic patients can help them build awareness of their underlying intentions and foster their ability to direct their attention when planning meals, eating, and managing blood glucose.
Exploring the Mindful Eating Cycle allows health professionals to identify and redirect their patients or clients away from their familiar restrictive and overeating cycles back to the present moment where choice, opportunity, and change can occur.

Learning Objectives:

After this teleconference, participants will be able to:
  • List the six decision points in the Mindful Eating Cycle.
  • Experience and describe a Mind Body Heart Scan.
  • Use a Hunger and Fullness Scale as part of diabetes self-management.
  • Use the mindfulness principle of curiosity to teach blood glucose management.
