LIBERTY, Maine — Do you sometimes find yourself sitting down to a meal in front of the television or eating it while standing at the counter and before you know it, you’ve cleaned your plate and you aren’t really sure what you ate? Or you gobble down a meal and then take seconds because you don’t feel full?
That is known as mindless eating and it usually leads to eating more than you should.

On Thursday, June 13, from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m., at the Liberty Town Office, Phyllis Havens, MS, RD, LSW, CDE, a nutrition therapist and diabetes educator, will give a free presentation, “The experience of mindful eating.”

She will talk about the difference between mindful and mindless eating and how to put mindful eating into practice. Using mindful eating practices can help you discover a far more satisfying relationship with food and eating.

The presentation is free but space is limited. To register, call Hester Kohl, health educator, at 930-2514 or email her at hkohl@wcgh.org.
