Eating Order: A 13-Week Trust Model Class for Dieting Casualties
Jackson, Elizabeth G.
Journal of Nutrition Education and Behavior, v40 n1 p43-48 Jan-Feb 2008
Chronic dieting distorts eating behaviors and causes weight escalation. Desperation about losing weight results in pursuit of extreme weight loss measures. Instead of offering yet another diet, nutrition educators can teach chronic dieters (dieting casualties) to develop eating competence. Eating Order, a 13-week class for chronic dieters based on Satter's How to Eat protocol, within a Health at Every Size framework, was successful for 36 women in improving eating attitudes and behaviors, body image, and self-esteem, regardless of initial degree of eating disturbance or weight. This practice model has the potential for ameliorating societal weight escalation and multigenerational struggles with eating and weight.
