Most of us know that eating an apple is healthier than eating chocolate cake, so why do we often choose
the cake? Contrary to popular belief, it is not just about having “willpower”. You can have all the
knowledge and motivation in the world, but until you learn how to overcome the "emotional" and
"conditioning" part of overeating, you will have a very hard time succeeding in your goal to overcome
problematic eating behaviours.
That's where Craving Change comes in. The Craving Change™ workshop, created by dietitian Wendy Shah and clinical psychologist Dr. Colleen Cannon, is a licensed, trademarked and evidence-based program that uses a cognitive-behavioural approach to help gain self-awareness of eating triggers and develop concrete strategies to help manage emotional eating and create new responses and strategies. This is not a course about dieting, but about understanding and controlling the behaviors that drive overeating.
Craving Change is a workshop series that is typically taught as three 2 ½ hour classes or four 2 hour classes over a 4 week period.
