Mood & Food: Managing Emotional Eating

$25.00

Registered dietitian nutritionist Fran Johnson, MS, RDN, LD offers practical strategies for managing how we eat and establishing a healthier relationship with food.

Product Description

Overview

When it comes to daily food choices, the spiritual, emotional and physical demands of a busy ministry can often interfere with healthy decision-making. In addition, our human moods (fatigue, isolation, anger, boredom, anxiety, depression) can cause us to confuse eating with self-care. Registered dietitian nutritionist Fran Johnson, MS, RDN, LD offers practical strategies for managing how we eat and establishing a healthier relationship with food.

Learning Outcomes

Participants will:

  1. Identify common mood and environmental patterns that initiate non-hunger-related eating;
  2. Develop skills for understanding the body’s signals for physiological hunger and satiety; and
  3. Learn alternative responses to familiar eating cues.

Who Should Participate

Priests, deacons, men and women religious, lay ministers, and those involved in vocations, formation, or clergy and ministry personnel needs.

Reflection Questions

Questions for reflection and discussion prior to the learning session are provided below.

  1. Am I really hungry: most people will admit that there are times when eating occurs when it is not accompanied by true signals of hunger. Is this an occasional or frequent occurrence for me?
  2. What about my food environment: does what I have stored in the car, office, kitchen or bedroom create temptation for me to eat without hunger?
  3. How am I feeling: what moods and situations most commonly cause me to over-eat?
