Shifting Perspectives and Transforming The Way You Think About Foods

28 Sep 2017

Join us Tuesday, October 3 from 1:30 - 2:30 p.m. in the Pioneer Room at the Memorial Union for this informative session provided by Dana Notte, MS, RD, CD. All ISU employees and students are welcome to attend.

Dana will discuss how in our diet-obsessed culture, answering the question, “what should I eat?” can feel impossible. But, it doesn’t need to be so hard! The reality is you don’t need a set of food rules to dictate your decisions about what, when, or how much to eat to support or improve your health. In fact, to the contrary, focusing on finding the perfect diet may actually be sabotaging your efforts to eat in a way that honors your body and your health.

In this session you will learn:

  • Why diets don’t work and how to become your own authority on decisions about food;
  • All about mindful and intuitive eating and how they can pave the way toward transforming your relationship with food;
  • Strategies to help you ditch the diet, shift your focus from weight loss to overall well-being, and establish an eating practice you’ll thrive on.

Our speaker, Dana Notte is a Nutrition Lead at Green Mountain at Fox Run, a non-diet, mindfulness-based wellness retreat for women who struggle with food and weight. Dana specializes in working with women who have a long history of dieting, disordered eating, and binge eating disorder. See Dana's full bio.
