Knowledge is Power
As we face the current public health crisis connected to Covid 19 or Corona Virus, many people are struggling with overwhelming feelings and a sense of stress and disconnection. At The Food & Mood Institute we understand that these are very difficult times and a lot of people are emotionally eating to cope with the stress, frustration, fear, loneliness, boredom, and the uncertainty of this situation.
This mini "quarantine" e-course was developed as a way to support those who are struggling with food and negative body image during the quarantine, encouraging them to use this as an opportunity for self-discovery and to be more present with their emotions and learn how to mindfully eat. We are all in this together and hope that this mini e-course provides you with some insight about your emotional eating patterns and that you are able to become the observer of your own experience without judging it, but using it as a way to understand your relationship with food, feelings and your body. We hope that you are able to learn more about mindful eating and how dealing with emotions and being present with your food, can help!
In this mini-course you will learn:
The meaning of emotional eating
The basic behaviors that describe emotional eaters
The signs and symptoms of emotional eating
Some causes of emotional eating
Strategies for breaking away from emotional eating
Resources for ongoing support
This is mini-course has three parts or lessons: the first one focuses on emotional eating patterns, the second one on facing the feelings, and the third one on mindful eating and the mind-body balance. Each lesson has a PowerPoint presentation, an experiential exercise and a journal entry so you can deepen your work. This mini-course is self-paced and offers multiple opportunities for self-discovery and growth.
We hope everybody is safe and healthy at this time, and strongly believe that we will get through this! For more information you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

I’m a bilingual nutritionist specialized in eating disorders who takes a holistic approach to wellness providing nutritional counseling to people who believe in the power of the therapeutic relationship between clients and professionals. I guide and support people in the process of finding balance within their bodies, food and lives.
I help people understand their issues from a nutritional prospective by counseling them and encouraging them to improve their lifestyles with healthy meal plans. I also believe that while it is important to help clients recognize and change negative patterns of behaviors connected to food, it is important to help people build on their strengths by supporting them and encouraging them through a trusting relationship.
