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.

Hmm...5 min of meditating each morning, or 29 seconds of watching this and laughing...? I'm going with this 🙏

It was all ignored. Clearly there was no understanding of any aspect of RED-S or mental health distress inside the @Nike organization. No one was looking for it. They completely missed or flagrantly ignored every sign & symptom. This is unacceptable and irresponsible. https://twitter.com/terrierpaq/status/1194649976183361537
@JillGeer remember that mental health distress that drives an athlete to self-harm and suicidal thoughts is part of RED-S. The two are not mutually exclusive. In fact, psychological state is the one component of RED-S that is bidirectional, being both a cause & a consequence!! https://twitter.com/jillgeer/status/1194259193856966656

“I just really encourage women to come together and to share our stories because the more we speak, the less they can single us out and attack us, and the more we can make change for the future generation." https://www.insider.com/kara-goucher-nike-oregon-project-runner-supports-mary-cain-2019-11
Tonight I am reminded how a culture that silences and shames victims is able to continue. But bad news, I’m not going anywhere. And I won’t be silenced. #fixgirlssports
When u apply the RED-S model, you have a clear picture of athlete well-being, or lack thereof, based on data, not blind or biased opinion. Had this been done for @runmarycain the outcome would have been different. When u ignore science and health data, u risk athlete well-being. https://twitter.com/terrierpaq/status/1194573683425234949
Without training as a health professional, Salazar (or any coach) is not qualified to accurately assess an athlete’s well-being. Depression, self-harm, suicidal thoughts, repeated broken bones & malnutrition are not indicators of well-being. They are signs of RED-S & were missed. https://twitter.com/terrierpaq/status/1194570194406068224

Enough with the Frose? Would you or someone you know like to consume less alcohol? Free for residents of Canada 18+ the Online Therapy Unit @online.therapy.unit is a credible, evidence based resource that might be able to help.
One of the core values of Craving Change is making psychological education and principles more accessible and available. It's well-established in the literature that 1:1 face to face therapy isn't for everyone. Directing people to CREDIBLE alternatives is one of the biggest ways we can all make a difference. THIS is one of those alternatives.
