Craving Change is an evidence based cognitive-behavioural approach to help patients manage
problematic eating. It teaches individuals to understand internal cues or triggers for cravings and
emotional eating and builds the skills needed to overcome them. Although Craving Change is not a weight loss program, it can help individuals struggling with weight due to problematic eating behaviours.
It can also be helpful for those who:
- find it challenging to maintain healthy eating habits
- eat for comfort or in response to strong emotions
- want to be more skillful when they experience food cravings and temptations
Craving Change workshops will be held in groups of 6-8 patients. The workshop will be run over 5 – 6
sessions (1 hour long) and will be led by the Registered Dietitian.
Our next Craving Change workshop is from January 4th to February 8th, 2018.
We will meet Thursday evenings from 5:30-6:30 at the clinic for a total of 6 sessions.
All patients in the Weight Management program are eligible to take part in these workshops.
*Patients interested in attending this workshop must be able to commit to all 6 sessions. There is a $15 fee associated with the workshop which will cover the cost of the Craving Change Workbook.
