Stonington, CT – December 15, 2012 – Katie Jeffrey, owner of FitNutrition, LLC, is pleased to announce her completion of the Am I Hungry?® Facilitator Training Program and the introduction of her 8-week Am I Hungry?® Mindful Eating Workshop, “The No Diet Approach to Reaching Your Optimal Weight and Feeling Great.”

On December 12, 2012, Katie Jeffrey became a licensed Facilitator of Am I Hungry?®, a comprehensive program that teaches participants to recognize and cope with their triggers for overeating and reconnect with their physical signals to guide when, what, and how much to eat without restrictive diet rules.

According to Michelle May, M.D., founder of the program and author of Eat What You Love, Love What You Eat: How to Break Your Eat-Repent-Repeat Cycle, “Most diets fail because they are negative and unsustainable, leaving the dieter feeling guilty and disappointed. Diets focus on what people should eat without addressing why they eat in the first place. As a result, the overeating cycle is never really broken. I developed the Am I Hungry? workshops to address the real causes of overeating and yoyo dieting.”

Katie Jeffrey will offer the 8-week Am I Hungry?® Workshops beginning on January 29th. The group workshops will take place weekly on Tuesdays from 6:30pm to 8:30pm at the Spirit Wind Center for Creativity & Healing located at The Velvet Mill, 32 Bayview Ave. Suite 131, 2nd floor. For more information, contact Katie at 860-917-6131.

Katie Jeffrey, MS, RD, CSSD, LDN, CDN is a licensed Am I Hungry? Facilitator, a registered dietitian, and a Board Certified Specialist in Sports Dietetics (CSSD). She graduated summa cum laude with a Masters Degree in Nutritional Sciences from the University of Connecticut. She owns her own business, FitNutrition, LLC in Stonington, CT. According to Katie, “Diets stand for deprivation, irritability, fatigue, restriction, rules, monotony, and a loss of trust in one’s hunger and fullness cues. There is little room for creativity and living when on a diet because the individual usually becomes preoccupied with food and exercise. Eating mindfully allows us to live our lives without being controlled by food. Individuals who eat mindfully make conscious decisions about why, when, what, and how much to eat based on their internal cues of hunger and fullness as well the nutritional content of food. This is a realistic approach to healthy eating and living.”
