As we prepare for another back-to-school season, we’re trying something different at the Self-Care Cabaret offering what Dr. MC is calling a series of “Bite-Sized Pods.” These episodes are shorter in length and focus on one topic with Dr. MC instead of our traditional interview style. For this week, we’re here to talk to you about the importance of Mindful Eating! Dr. MC shares some insight into why this is important as well as some statistics and information as to why diets do not work. Dr. MC shares pieces about her eating disorder journey as she explains the hunger/fullness scale, and physical hunger signs in the body. Dr. MC offers several actionable takeaways for you to invite more mindful eating into your routines.
This is the type of episode you will want to refer back to again and again as this can be an area that people struggle with. Whether you are an expert at mindful eating or just beginning, this is a great introduction to the topic.
