The Programme


The Understanding Your Eating Programme does not tell you what to eat or how much. We think you know that already. Instead it helps you to explore whether you are eating to deal with your feelings. Are you using food to manage your life? If you are, it teaches you a different way of getting through the day.The Programme has two parts. The first is an introduction to the Programme which is designed to help you discover whether you are an “emotional eater” and to teach you how you can start to use other ways of managing your life.
