Mindfulness & Health Coaching Strategies for Weight Loss

Many people know how they “should” eat to lose weight and/or maintain weight loss - but they have a hard time maintaining a healthy diet & lifestyle. In this 7-week course, we explore the important role the mind plays in losing weight and how mindfulness (the ability to sustain present moment awareness, without judgement) and health coaching strategies (understanding why losing weight is deeply important to you) are the foundation for lasting change.
