    Is working on your relationship with food a part of your goals for 2017?

    Marci RD Nutrition is offering a 5-week meal support series with

    eating disorder and Intuitive Eating expert Sarah Patten. Details below!

     

    Who should consider participating?

    Anyone actively working on their eating disorder recovery as well as those focused on improving their relationship with food, re-learning their body's hunger and fullness cues, and developing self-trust around consuming challenging or “forbidden” foods. Participants must be appropriate for an outpatient level of care and must be working with an individual therapist and dietitian.

    Groups will be led by Sarah Patten, a registered dietitian, eating disorder expert, and Intuitive Eating specialist with Marci RD Nutrition.

    What we offer:

    A five-week meal support series focused on consuming adequate and challenging meals in a supportive group environment.

    Our first group will consist of introductions, an orientation to the keys of effective exposures, as well as personalized goal setting. YOU decide how to best utilize exposures in the groups to follow. The remaining four weeks will consist of mindfulness based eating exercises, dining together as a group, and post-meal processing.

    When will the group be held?

    Tuesday evenings from 7-8:15pm; 1/24, 1/31, 2/7, 2/21 and 2/28 (we will skip Tuesday, 2/14)

    Where we will meet:

    Marci RD Nutrition Counseling Office

    22 Hilliard St., Cambridge, MA 02138

    1st floor, door on the right

    Why join our group?

    Exposure to challenging meals in a supportive environment fosters greater self-trust while decreasing fear and anxiety over time. Food avoidance is a big risk factor for relapse and can hold one back from making peace with food once and for all. This group will help you to become more confident in your ability to feed yourself in an adequate, varied, and enjoyable way.

    Cost:

    $225 total ($45/group x5 weeks)

     

    In addition to the weekly support from Sarah and the other group members, you will leave this group with a toolbox of resources to take with you!

    Important registration information:

    Group size is limited to 6 participants. Contact Sarah at Sarah@MarciRD.com to reserve your spot. Your spot will be officially reserved once payment is received in full. Registering for the full series is required. We will not accept partial registration.

Boston Marathon: A spirit of motivation

Monday, April 20, 2009
As I type, the Boston Marathon is well underway.  Since 1897, thousands of athletes have trained rigorously in order to compete in the world's oldest annual marathon race.  And it is a site to behold!  Last year, I cheered on runners at mile 22.  With a few miles to go, some competitors were running, some were walking, and some were even limping.  As I stood there I thought "while this is truly amazing, long distance running is not for me!"  And I would imagine that many of you feel the s...

The Biggest Loser: Second Chances

Sunday, September 13, 2009
Believe it or not, one of the things I'm most frequently asked about is my opinion on NBC's "The Biggest Loser" reality show.  And fans are getting geared up for the show's 8th season!  Simply put: The Biggest Loser is a TV show and TV shows are meant to entertain.  As a result, contestants are put through rigorous and unsustainable workout regimes and dietary restrictions.  So, the audience gets exactly what it's looking for, jaw dropping transformations that seem beyond human! I actually...
