Discover why:

You’d rather eat the carrot cake than the carrot

You go to buy milk and leave with $80 worth of groceries

Chocolate and fast foods are your ‘go-to’ solutions when you feel stressed

You crave certain foods at certain times

You keep eating when you know you’ve had enough

You know what to eat, but have trouble making healthy choices

You’ve made positive changes to your eating but then gone back to less healthy habits

Do you want to improve what, when or how much you eat?

Then the Craving Change® program is for you! It’s Canada’s #1 cognitive-behavioural program for people who struggle with their eating habits. The practical, skill-based approach will help you:

Understand why you eat the way you do.

Learn how your eating decisions are influenced by your surroundings, your body and what you learned while growing up.

Become more aware of your problematic eating triggers.

Tune into your thoughts and emotions that steer you off track.

Use 16 ‘change and maintain’ strategies and resources to change your eating for good.

Have a healthier relationship with food!

All you need is your mind! That’s because it’s our thinking habits that guide our eating habits.

Is Craving Change a diet or weight loss program?

No, this program is not specifically designed to provide the what, when and how much advice for weight loss. However, if you are trying to change your eating, the self-awareness techniques and strategies that you will learn in the program will help you. More importantly, these skills may help you stick with positive changes that you make for the long term.

Can I follow Craving Change if I have diabetes or high blood pressure?

Absolutely! The program is for anyone who is trying to make healthy changes to their eating. In fact, the clinical practice guidelines for these chronic conditions recommend the use of cognitive-behaviour techniques.

Who can attend?

The program is for adults over the age of 18 years who struggle to make and maintain positive changes with their eating. The group workshops are not recommended for someone who has been diagnosed with an eating disorder such as anorexia or bulimia. Individual counselling with a certified Craving Change clinician may be available.

Who leads the workshops?

The workshop facilitators are health care providers who are members of a regulated health profession. The facilitator or clinician has successfully completed the Craving Change Facilitator training and certification process. They will be following a structured program outline and referring to a manual developed for the program workshops.

There is a workbook that accompanies the program.
