Amber Kay (Co-Founder of the Fresh Start Program and Co-Author of 'Get Back On Track After Your Weight Loss Surgery') hosted an enjoyable, interactive and informative group workshop on Saturday, 12th August at the clinic, all about 'Beating Mindless Eating'.
It was very well attended by Dr Loi's patients who wanted to gain insight and strategies to manage and overcome one of the most common challenges that people face - before and after their surgery. Everyone who came learnt the differences between genuine physical hunger and 'emotional hunger' (also known as 'head hunger'), became clear on their own personal trigger times, places, events for any unnecessary snacking, and then gained clarity around 'why we do what we do' so that they had a deeper understanding of what was driving their choices. The group then had fun developing and practising all sorts of ways to interrupt themselves, and create new and empowering behaviours that would move them towards their goal weight and health. There were plenty of laughs and lots of fantastic connection, with many sharing how valuable it was to discover that they weren't alone and the only ones struggling in this area, and everyone commenting on how much they enjoyed the session!
