There is no question that the most popular Craving Change resource is, ‘Types of Hunger’. Every week, we hear from clinicians like Paige Huycke, RD from the Kingston Community Health Centres who report that it’s a simple, yet invaluable tool to use with individual clients and groups.
“I use the Types of Hunger resource along with the tracking chart all the time in my practice. It really helps clients who describe themselves as ‘emotional or comfort eaters’ identify areas of priority for their behaviour goals. It also helps narrow down which Craving Change strategies they can experiment with after we determine their types of hunger.
I am starting to do a pre and post survey tracking frequency of emotional eating before and after the program. I have only used this with one small group so far, but overall results showed that frequency reduced, on average, from daily or multiple times per day to just a few times per week or less.
I really enjoy facilitating this program and have had nothing but positive feedback from any client who has participated.”
