Eastern Health is inviting all adults who want to improve their health and wellbeing, to an interactive group workshop in Healesville.
The workshop is run by Eastern Health dieticians over two days at Healesville Hospital and Yarra Valley Health.
Your Body. Your Way, is a non-diet approach to lifestyle change and aims to provide a safe and positive space for people to discuss their journey with food, with an emphasis on building and maintaining a healthy relationship with what they eat.
The workshop will look at a technique called mindfulness and provide practical skills people can apply at home.
This will help people enjoy the food they eat and learn to understand their level of hunger and fullness. The emphasis is on achieving sustainable and positive lifestyle changes and not about dietary restriction.
“As part of this program, we will explore the history of fad diets and the underlying aspects that set people up to fail, as well as the language people use with food and what drives us to eat. We also help people to understand the physiological needs of the human body in order to run at its best,” Deanna Troiano, Eastern Health dietician said.
The workshop will run over two days at Healesville Hospital and Yarra Valley Health on Wednesday 11 of March and 18 March. Contact Community Health on 1300 130 381 or email email@example.com for more information and to register.
