Building a Positive Relationship with Food – Break the Stress Eating Cycle

Eating is a vital activity, meant to nourish and support our bodies. But often we can eat for other reasons – to fit in at social situations, relieve stress, satisfy cravings, or try to make ourselves feel better. This emotional and mindless eating can lead to an unhealthy relationship with food.

In this online engagement class, we will explore the psychological foundations of a positive relationship with food to enhance mind-body health and optimize performance. You will learn research-based mindfulness practices shown to enhance physical and psychological well-being based on MB-EAT (Mindfulness Based Eating Awareness Training).

Through meditations, mindful eating experiences, and group processing, you will discover ways to assess your own hunger and satiety and free yourself from the stress-eating cycle. This class has been adapted to be inclusive of all body sizes, shapes, and sizes with a health rather than weight-centered approach.

Instructor: Bryan Lian, MS RD CEDRD-S, is the dietitian/nutritionist for students at Stanford University Vaden Health Center. He is a part of the team promoting student health and well-being and also co-teaches mindful eating as an academic course. Bryan earned his master’s degree in health administration at the University of California, San Francisco, and completed his clinical training at two Harvard teaching hospitals.
