Research has found that regular physical activity appears as effective as psychotherapy for treating mild to moderate depression. Therapists also report that patients who exercise regularly simply feel better and are less likely to overeat or abuse alcohol and drugs. Source: CMHA

Have Diabetes and Craving Change? Then This Workshop is for You!

August 11, 2017

If you are living with diabetes and want to change your relationship with food the Huron Perth DiabetesProgram invites you to attend Craving Change™ a three part workshop that will be offered in Seaforth on September 11, 18 and 25.

The key concepts of the Craving Change™ approach will help you understand why it's hard to change your eating habits, identify personal triggers for problematic eating, learn how to respond to those triggers differently and maintain these changes.

“For years, research has identified that behaviour change outcomes improve when people are encouraged to be self-managers and to identify internal and external factors that promote or prevent change,” says Victoria Zimmer, Registered Dietitian & Certified Diabetes Educator. “What's great about The Craving Change™ approach is that it helps our patients discover their problematic eating triggers and learn new healthier ways of managing them. Essentially we help people change their eating habits by changing their thinking habits. This is especially important for people living with diabetes because food choices play such an important role in helping to manage blood sugars.”

This workshop is available at no cost to participants and will take place from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm in the Seaforth Community Hospital Board Room on the three above mentioned dates. Those interested in participating are asked to register bySeptember 1, 2017 by calling 519-527-1650 Ext 2366 or registering online by clicking here.

“It's important to note that this workshop will not cover what or when to eat, carbohydrates or include discussion on diabetes medication,” notes Zimmer. “If these are issues you wish to address I recommend you speak to your family doctor or refer yourself to the Huron Perth Diabetes Program by calling 519-272-8210 Ext 2365.”
