Episode 22: Mindful eating- What is it? Can it help with weight loss?


I discuss the concept of mindfulness in eating with Dr. Michelle Thompson to explore how it can help with weight loss. Dr. Thompson is board certified in Lifestyle Medicine, Integrative Medicine, and Family Medicine. She is a Faculty for the University of Pittsburgh Medical School, is the Chair of Medicine UPMC Horizon, and also a physician advisor for Nemacolin Woodlands Resort Holistic Healing Center in Farmington, Pennsylvania.

Dr. Thompson has developed a Free Healthy Living Series, where she lectures and provides experiential opportunities to anyone in the community seeking knowledge in integrative modalities. She has been active in teaching the whole food plant-based diet to people in her community, creating cooking programs with a local chef and dietician, for eating to reverse disease. She runs many programs and workshops to help people lead healthy lives.
