For Immediate Release

The College of Continuing Education and Community Service (CCECS) at the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo offers The Mindful Eating Lab, which focuses on changing the way people experience foods they eat. Classes will be held on Mondays, from 5 – 7 p.m., June 5 – 26, at UH Hilo’s Kanaka`ole Hall Room 112. The cost is $50.

Instructor Sarah Josef, who holds a B.S. in dietetics and an M.A. in holistic health education, will teach students how to create a personal diet that is enjoyable and healthy. Participants will learn the health benefits of slowing down the eating process, how to use cues such as hunger and fullness to guide the amount of food they eat, and how to get greater enjoyment from foods. Basic diet and nutrition education will also be included.
