Eat for Life Program Information.
Eat for Life is a live online 10-week mindfulness-based intuitive eating program that has been taught to people around the world since 2007. It guides you to a loving and kind relationship with your food and your body through the practice of mindfulness. Guided by the knowledge that diets don’t work in the long term, the program teaches participants how to enjoy food that’s both tasty and nutritious, care for the body they inhabit, and create a more meaningful, joyous life.
Research on the program, published in the American Journal of Health Promotion, demonstrates that participants had significant improvements in comparison to a control group as follows:
- Increased mindfulness
- Greater appreciation for their bodies
- Increased intuitive eating (eating based on hunger cues instead of emotional and environmental cues)
- Decreased binge eating and other problematic eating behaviors
If you are seeking professional development, the program will give you tools and practices to teach mindful eating to your clients and is the first step to certification for teaching the program. If you are seeking personal knowledge about mindful eating, the Eat for Life Program will help you enjoy the food you eat, love your body, and live with joy.

Read what participants have to say about the class:
“I found Dr. Rossy’s book and her class to be a transforming experience. As a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, I have knowledge about food and nutrition but that’s exactly what often gets in my own way and in the way of assisting others! Dr. Rossy has shown me it’s much more than what you eat. I became aware of my own food rules that I have clung to for years. I began applying mindfulness practices to other areas of my life and found more peace and happiness in daily living. If you want something lasting, I encourage you to sign up for Eat for Life and/or buy the book. It’s worth every penny!” –Nancy Strot
“EFL has been a transformational experience…my relationship to food has changed dramatically. I actually think about food much less than before — now it’s rarely on my mind until I begin to experience hunger. And I am savoring my food infinitely more…EFL embodies an intuitive, gracious approach to living, and I am captivated by the gentleness and kindness inherent in the process.” –Linda Dyer
“It is amazing that 10 weeks have gone past. I will use the “make peace with food” for a long time to come, that has been the most successful tip. I don’t have forbidden food, or food that is “bad.” I can have it just in the quantity that will satisfy. Thank you for the insight and the motivation. You have made this a successful experience that has changed my life.” –Amy
