Change thinking habits to change eating habits
Craving Change® provides cognitive-behavioural tools, activities and strategies that address the universal struggle to change problematic and emotional eating behaviours. The thought-provoking, 'how-to' approach focuses on the 'why' of eating behaviour and what to do about it.
Developed by a clinical psychologist and registered dietitian, Craving Change® is delivered by thousands of clinicians working in a variety of settings across Canada and internationally.
What people are saying
I feel the most important outcomes of the Craving Change® program may well be a person’s feeling of control over his/her food choices, improvement in frequency of negative self-talk, and fewer negative emotions about the relationship with food. As a dietitian, I feel that I would have been more effective in the past had I had this resource.
~ Carla Beer-Carpenter, RD, Vancouver Island
Shah and Cannon are credible professionals leading the charge to help people make and maintain healthy eating behaviour changes. Using "best evidence", they have developed a smart and appealing program that could help millions of people make healthier choices more often.
~ Michael Vallis, PhD, CDHA Behaviour Change Institute, Associate Professor, Dalhousie University
As a business owner, I rave about Craving Change®! My staff is able to pick up the materials and run with them, and our clients love it. I also incorporate the unique cognitive behavioural principles and tools into the work I do as a consultant. Craving Change® is adaptable, creative, and practical- what a bonus to my business.

Terrific post debunking false and misleading myths about "boosting" our immune system. Now more than ever is the time to listen to the evidence, not the trends #becausescience
No supplement can “boost” your immune system to “fight off” or prevent #COVID19.
Nutrients, such as protein, vitamin C, selenium, vitamin E, vitamin A, vitamin D & zinc can help SUPPORT our immune system.
You may need to take a vitamin D3 supplement if you have:

Amazing advocacy. Thank you!
Good news for dietitians in private practice. The Prime Minister announced yesterday that changes are coming to the new Canadian Emergency Response Benefit (CERB) to accommodate workers with significantly reduced hours. https://bit.ly/3aQw1E5

Student emailed me today that she is has symptoms of COVID-19 (no testing available), apologizing profusely for late assignment. Since this will start happening to many instructors, here's a script for an appropriate reply:

If you have mental illness and are suffering right now I see you. You might feel invisible but you're not. You deserve more than a 'toolkit' or a 'resource hub.' You deserve better than waiting lists and closed doors. You deserve better than this.

We had a great response to a recent post listing 3 licensed clinicians who were launching workshops at their local grocery store this week. Craving Change® is offered by licensed clinicians working within the health care system, working in private practice, and working in settings such as pharmacies and grocery stores.
Did you know that we keep a list of certified clinicians across Canada? On our website www.cravingchange.ca, click the "I'm a Member of the Public" button, and voila. You're welcome to contact these clinicians directly, as long as you're not going to market to them. A photo of this from a phone is attached.
Two quick comments: we do not list fees because they can change quickly, and the program can be offered in a wide range of formats and settings with different mandates. Please ask the clinician. And second, we do our best to keep this list up to date, but perfection is impossible (and exhausting) so please treat it as a head start, not a perfect document.
