If I said it once, I’ll say it again: I am STOKED about tomorrow night’s twitter chat. We have the pleasure of chatting with Michelle May, author of “Eat What You Love, Love What You Eat: Break the Eat, Repent, Repeat Cycle” and creator of “Amy I Hungry?”. Michelle is a motivational speaker and guru of mindful eating. So we’ll be discussing principles of mindful eating as well as how that relates to eating disorder recovery. HOWEVER, you don’t have to have an eating disorder to benefit from this fantastic chat.
If you’re new to Twitter, here’s a primer on how to participate. It’s simple, go to www.tweetchat.com and enter the keyword “endED” and it will appear as if you’re in a chat room. Watch the tweets stream live and join in on the conversation.
