Hi! I’m Dr. Sheila Forman. I am psychologist, a Mindfulness-Based Eating Awareness Training (MB-EAT) Instructor and founder of TAME Your Appetite: The Art of Mindful Eating.For over twenty years I have been helping people address weight and food issues.TAME Your Appetite: The Art of Mindful Eating is a mindfulness-based non-diet approach to weight management based on the MB-EAT research done by Jean Kristeller, PhD of Indiana State University.
TAME incorporates mindfulness practices to cultivate greater awareness of hunger (emotional and physical) and fullness, satiety and satisfaction, food choices and emotional eating triggers. With an emphasis on self-care and acceptance, and listening to your body’s natural feedback systems that send out messages that your body needs food or has had enough, you will learn to cultivate your inner gourmet, decrease excessive eating and improve emotional responses to stress and other causes of emotional overeating.The result is a change in your relationship wtih food and eating such that you can lose whatever excess weight you maybe carrying and, as long as you remain mindful, never gain it back.
