The Craving Change® program has been embraced by many clinicians working in a primary care setting. We recently received the following comments from a clinician who shared that their centre includes Craving Change® in their lifestyle and chronic disease education sessions, including those for diabetes.
“The Craving Change® program is a big hit with our clients, and a joy for the facilitators to share!”
“The ‘Increase Awareness of… Environmental Stimuli’ resource and the discussion around environmental stimuli is a favourite with our Craving Change® groups. Starting the conversation with “Have you noticed…portions sizes increasing or food is everywhere?” promotes a vast discussion on how the environment has changed and how it is encouraging an obesogenic environment. I believe this gives participants some relief knowing it does not come down to “willpower” and understanding how our environment can promote “impaired eating” habits. In the future, I would like to implement this resource and conversation into individual appointments and nutrition counselling since it has been a great conversation starter in our group setting.”
