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.

On the 1 year anniversary of the @MMIWG final report: Take a moment to thank the thousands of survivors, families, Elders, community members who came forward to share their stories. So many families shared their deepest pain and asked for justice.
Yesterday I had the opportunity to partake in a 3hr painfully honest dialogue with my med school admin addressing the ways this country has failed Black people, the ways medical education has failed the Black student, and the ways they have failed me & my colleagues. 1/x
Many of my Black friends and I have gotten messages from white colleagues asking about our well being and how they can help. Rather than burden us with your guilt, invite us to co-author papers and grants with you. Invite us to be on the symposium or be the guest speaker.
My public health education taught me that Black people were a “high risk” for many chronic illnesses. My public health education did not teach me why. Teaching me why would have revealed the systems of oppression that make Black people a higher risk for premature death.
Why are people scared of the riots and looting?
The flu kills way more people every year.
For my white @twitter followers who are truly interested in change, listen to this 3 1/2 min clip of @LamaRod1 discussing how “good white people” must come to terms with “participating in an identity specially created to disadvantage Black people”. https://soundcloud.com/siriusxm-news-issues/lama-rod-buddhist-teacher-making-good-white-people-understand-their-whiteness

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.
