Great Barrington: Fairview offers mindful eating program


Fairview Hospital will present "Mindful Eating: An Effective Approach to Weight Loss," an eight week program, from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. Thursdays beginning Oct. 18, in the Conference Room at the hospital.

Robert Hoechster, RD, LDN, of Fairview's Outpatient Nutrition Services, will facilitate the program.

The program uses mindfulness meditation, eating exercises, instruction and self-reflection to cultivate awareness and help repair the relationship an individual has with food.

This program is not a clinic for eating disorders or a program focused on losing weight.

The program fee is $75. For more information or to register, call Hoechster at 413-854-9661.
