For the final episode of 2018, I was joined by Dr. Michelle May who talked with me about mindfulness and health, and so much more. Dr. May was trained as a general practitioner and now spends her time speaking and spreading the word about mindful eating. She has a lot of wonderful information o impart to providers and patients alike.
In this episode:
Dr. May's Book – Eat What you Love, Love What you Eat.
Mindful eating allows us to live our lives fully
Questions to ask around food
What do I want to eat?
What do I have to eat?
What do I need to eat?
Eating disorders – Binge Eating Disorder
Restriction and BED is highly correlated
Stepping away from dichotomous thinking
Finding enjoyable movement
Sometimes means lowering the bar rather than beating yourself up about what you “should” be doing
