Yo-yo dieting, weight cycle, and disordered eating are some struggles that many people endure every day. Mindful eating is the antidote to all of these struggles. 

Taking charge of our eating habits and being present while we eat is crucial to preserving our health and creating a vibrant life. And today’s guest, Dr. Michelle May, will teach us how to do it. 

Dr. Michelle May left her successful career as a family physician to pursue her passion for coaching and training others about mindful eating. Eventually, she created a movement and a mission to shift how we eat worldwide. 

These are some of the topics we discuss during the episode:   

  • How to start listening to your own body signals
  • Dealing with the biochemistry associated with food habits
  • Using data to make decisions about eating
  • Tips to start incorporating mindful eating habits

Food is a life force that brings joy, pleasure, and connection. But even though you may be a successful MD in multiple areas of your life, you may be struggling with food and feeling shame about it. You’re not alone. You, too, can stop dieting, stop focusing on weight as the ultimate outcome and heal the relationship with food for good.  


“After you are satiated or sated, you are really just eating a memory. You are eating a memory of what food tasted like at the beginning when you were hungry. It’s not gonna taste that good again until you’re hungry again.” – Dr. Michelle May
