Default WEBINAR: MS and Your Relationship with Food (Oct 9)

Multiple Sclerosis and Your Relationship with Food
October 9th, 2018 @ 8:00pm - 9:15pm US/Eastern

Mona Bostick, RDN, CSO, LDN
Gayle Lewis, Ph.D, MSCS

“Your diet is a bank account. Good food choices are good investments.” -Bethenny Frankel

There is growing research connecting our diet to our emotional well-being. Eating is one of our most emotionally charged experiences, and food can be used as both a vehicle for emotional expression and emotional suppression. The stress, pain, and unpredictability of MS can make this balance particularly volatile.

Join dietitian Mona Bostick and psychologist Gayle Lewis as they discuss the influence diet has on your overall wellness while highlighting the emotional aspects of eating.

This interactive discussion will focus on:
  • Learning how food is often used to manage emotions
  • Learning how to understand hunger cues, both external and internal and ways to address them in constructively
  • The differences between Healthy Eating Patterns and Disordered Eating Patterns
  • Planning and incorporating mindful eating behaviors and approaches
  • Understanding the importance using food as nutritional sustenance and strength rather than an emotional defense
