Neuroscience of Change – Why We Fall Off Diets


neuroscience of diet failureNeuroscience & Weight Webinar

As the new year unfolds, a familiar situation is repeating itself once again. People who resolved to start eating healthier – whether for weight loss or not (although it most often is) — start struggling with the diet plan they chose to lead them to success.

Note that when we say “diet,” it’s not always a weight loss diet; the word in fact refers to what a person eats over time.

So why is it that people have such a hard time making changes in their eating behaviors?

Understanding Neuroscience Can Help You Make Lasting Changes

Tune into our free webinar next week “Neuroscience of Change: Why We Fall Off Diets” to get some answers.

Neuroscience of Change
7 PM EST, Tuesday, JAN 20 [end-div]It’s at 7 PM eastern on Tuesday, January 20 and is a featured part of Healthy Weight Week 2015. More about that on our Friday post this week.

You’ll learn in the webinar how you can use what we know about the brain — neuroscience — and how to use that understanding to help make change happen. Lest that sound complicated, here’s the short answer: People are creatures of habit and the practice of mindfulness can take us far.

Mindfulness Is At The Core Of Our Program

Mindfulness has been at the core of our program at Green Mountain at Fox Run since its inception — long before it was called mindfulness. In essence, it’s about paying attention without judgment in order to determine the best response to what’s going on in your life in the moment.

We continually hear from our alums how what they learned and practiced at Green Mountain in terms of mindful eating, as well as the other ways of being around food, exercise and body, has changed their lives. It’s a powerful approach to living that is gaining prominence daily. If it’s something you’re not familiar with, we heartily encourage you to give it a try.

Follow Us During The Webinar On Twitter

We’ll be live tweeting the webinar, too, with the hashtag #gmfr. Plus, it will be recorded and put up on our website for viewing later if you can’t join us.

Hope to see you on the webinar!
