What is Mindful Eating?
Mindful Eating is an innovative treatment model based on scientific research and open to anyone who deliberately want to deal with food and eating.
- Mindful Eating is not a diet or weight loss program.
- Mindful Eating is about awareness of your eating habits, sensory / bodily sensations and present thoughts and emotions.
- Mindful Eating has more to do with where, when, how and why you eat than what you eat.
The Mindful Eating program is incorporated into different training modules;
8-week courses and workshops, in group setting or individual sessions.
Menu is also a unique training platform for healthcare professionals in Europe.
The training on offer includes masterclasses and Mindful Eating courses with internationally renowned facilitators
