Try the Empowered Eating method to take charge of food consumption

Empowered EatingDayton psychologist Jeffrey R. Wilbert offers quizzes and articles to help us self-diagnose attitudes that may be keeping us big. He advocates “Empowered Eating,” a philosophy that emphasizes choice and mindfulness in the consumption of food. The four cornerstones of Empowered Eating are responsibility, mindfulness, purposefulness and competence.”Emotional eaters,” notes Wilbert, “are typically weak in a set of crucial life management tools summarized by the acronym ‘FATS’:  Feelings management, Assertive expression, Time effectiveness, and Self-care.  An individual weak in FATS skills routinely feels overwhelmed and out of control, especially when making eating choices.” Firm your FATS to end self-defeating behaviors!
