Let's Talk Weight Inclusivity: A Panel Discussion100% SSL Secure
Moderated by Dana Notte MS, RD, CD with Special Guest Panelist Megrette Fletcher, M.Ed., RD, CDCES and Michelle May, M.D., CSP | Monday, July 27 4:00-5:30 pm EDT
About the Event:
It is the position of TCME that mindful eating is inherently a weight inclusive practice and that mindful eating for purposes of intentional weight loss is inconsistent with the spirit of mindful eating. Yet, mindful eating is often positioned in the popular press and even in the research literature as a practice compatible with and suitable for intentional weight loss. Undoubtedly, this leads to a lot of confusion among healthcare providers, clients, and mindfulness practitioners who aim to incorporate mindful eating into their teaching and into their lives. In an effort to resolve this discrepancy, TCME has invited 4 highly respected and experienced mindful eating professionals and teachers to discuss this topic of mindful eating and weight inclusivity further.
In this 90-minute panel discussion, our panelists will discuss why mindful eating is a weight inclusive practice and to use it as a weight-loss intervention is antithetical to the spirit of mindful eating; how to integrate mindful eating through a weight inclusive lens when working with clients with health conditions that would generally carry recommendations for weight loss; and some of the challenges and concerns that arise for teachers and practitioners of mindful eating who may feel called to be more weight inclusive but work with a population who desires weight loss.
