THRIVE NUTRITION GROUPS
THRIVE NUTRITION – Food and Body Acceptance Workshop

Thrive Nutrition is a Community based therapeutic approach focused on developing self-acceptance, specifically related to the relationship with your body and food. Our emphasis is to help you get unstuck on your focus on food and dieting and to live the life that is important to you.

The workshop is based on the research by Dr. Kari Anderson, DBH LPC and Michelle May MD. They created the Am I Hungry® Mindful Eating for Binge Eating program. Grounded in research, the AIH ME-BE model was tested and results indicate a significant decrease in binge eating behavior, measured by the Binge Eating Scale. Score decreased from severe binge eating to non-binge eating after the 10-week group program. (Anderson & May, 2012)

The following skills and strategies will be included:

  • Mindful based activities and skill building
  • Experiential work around mindful eating, body acceptance and emotional and hunger awareness
  • ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy) – focus on skill building to address painful thoughts and feelings that get people stuck around food and body issues and help clarify what is truly important to you and move you toward your goals and life that is important to you.
  • Nutrition and Food Experientials in a safe supportive environment
