Tell us more about your upcoming presentation for GSN’s Moving Through Grief… Together meeting:

The goal of this presentation is to help those who are experiencing grief navigate their world of nutrition, and even more specifically, their relationship with food.  As eating, and our diets, are a huge part of self-care during grief, emphasis will be placed on the subjects of how and when we need to eat, how to choose our diets during this time, how to not fight with ourselves when things go haywire, and more.

Share an experience or story about grief and transformation:

I have a very deep and personal story with grief from going through a divorce, and my relationship with food was greatly affected during that time.  Please feel free to visit my blog to learn more about my personal struggles with this issue.

Provide a few focus questions for our community to meditate on and discuss in our group sharing after your presentation:

1.  Is it normal for my eating habits, and diet, to totally change during grief?
2.  What do I do if I can’t eat at all, or find myself overeating or binge eating when I never did that before?
3.  How do I make sure I don’t gain weight, or lose too much weight?
4.  What do I REALLY need to care about when it comes to my diet?
