Ep 18: Appetite Awareness Training with Dr. Linda Craighead
Do you overeat, chronically diet, or feel loss of control over food? Have you lost connection with your body's internal signals of hunger and fullness? Do you want to eat as naturally as you did as a child? Then listen to this episode with Dr. Linda Craighead about Appetite Awareness Training Appetite Awareness Training (AAT) is a method of self monitoring developed by Dr. Linda Craighead to teach individuals how to tune into internal signals of hunger and fullness and use this heightened awareness to make conscious decisions about eating. Unlike dieting or monitoring calories/food, which increase preoccupation with food, AAT teaches you how to use your appetite cues and mindful eating to reestablish a normal relationship with food. About Dr. Linda Craighead Dr. Linda Wilcoxon Craighead, Ph.D. is Professor of Psychology at Emory University in Atlanta and has published extensively in the areas of eating disorders and weight concerns. In her book, The Appetite Awareness Workbook: How to listen to your body and overcome binge eating, overeating and preoccupation with food, Dr. Craighead guides you how to develop appetite awareness and mindful eating as a cognitive behavioral approach to eating and weight problems. Dr. Craighead teaches workshops, nationally and internationally, providing training in the application of appetite awareness to a range of problems related to eating and weight. Dr. Craighead is currently working on modifying and applying appetite awareness for children and adolescents, particularly as a tool to prevent or intervene early in the development of obesity. Dr. Craighead has extended her interest in mindfulness through collaboration with the Emory Cognitively-Based Compassion Training (CBCT).
