Human Resource Services will host an informational session focused on how our mood impacts our eating habits and what to do about it. The population of the United States is becoming increasingly obese with each passing decade. There are many speculations about the cause of this phenomenon from an increasing sedentary lifestyle, the ready availability of high calorie foods, to stress and even sleep deprivation. However, if people ate only when they were truly hungry and stopped when they were full, there would be no obesity epidemic. This workshop will address the relationship between emotions and food consumption and how to retrain your body and mind to recognize the cues of hunger and to eat for physiological and not emotional reasons. This hour-long session will be offered via Webcast Wednesday, February 15 at noon. Please register in advance.
