Mindful Eating Cycle

The Mindful Eating Cycle

Mindful eating is an ancient practice with profound applications in our current food-abundant environment. The Mindful Eating Cycle provides the necessary structure for learning how to apply the concepts to all aspects of eating, beginning with why you eat in the first place all the way through understanding where you invest the energy you’ve consumed.

Am I Hungry?

Although it is a deceptively simple title, the question “Am I hungry?” opens the door to understanding why, when, what, how, and how much you eat, and where you invest your energy. All of the Am I Hungry?® Mindful Eating Programs including Eat What You Love, Love What You Eat with Diabetes, use the Mindful Eating Cycle, a simple model developed by founder Michelle May MD, to help you become aware and in charge of the hundreds of eating decisions you make every day.
