What Graduates of recent online programs are saying:
“The online MB-EAT program is not like most online training programs. The course is rooted in experiential learning. Each week we met together as a group and experienced the program as we were learning about it. Andrea is a very engaged teacher and facilitator. She frequently checks in, encourages peer teaching and learning, and offers multiple opportunities for additional learning and connecting. Andrea is open, supportive, and extremely knowledgeable. She is a passionate facilitator and teacher with vast meditation experience, who is able to balance the science behind MB-EAT with mindfulness practice in a way that creates a learning environment that is both rich in depth and breadth. I highly recommend this course. It is both personally and professionally rewarding. “
~ Barbara Sobel., MS, Integrative Nutritionist, Winter 2016 Online MB-EAT Training
“This is a wonderful program! Andrea is quite knowledgeable and presents a solid, easy-to-access curriculum. The weekly classes and meditations provided a great deal of support for integrating the practices personally and professionally.Her compassion and warmth set the tone for a lovely connection as a group. The program allowed me to experience and also enhance my embodied wisdom. I am so pleased with the new habits I have developed as a result! This program was an exceptional learning experience.”
~Jessica Kassinof LCSW, Licensed Social Worker, Raleigh, NC, USA
“The online MB-EAT Professional Training program exceeded my expectations. I was prepared to get tools to teach and help my clients but I was not expecting the tools to have such an impact on myself. Being a registered nutritionist and a Kundalini Yoga Instructor, I had starting applying the principles of mindful eating into my life and professional work before starting the program but the MB-EAT Professional Training program has transformed and deepened my understanding of mindful eating and mindfulness. After the program I have more confidence in integrating the principles of mindful eating to my individual sessions and teaching programs. I highly recommend online MB-EAT for other professionals that would like to deepen their understanding of mindful eating and mindfulness both personal and professional”.
~ Ragnheidur Gudjonsdottir, registered nutritionist , Iceland.
“I just completed the four month Mindful Eating Training (MB-EAT) course…Andrea led the program with professionalism, compassion and integrity. I highly recommend this training for those who are willing to take the leap within and go through the world of mindfulness while integrating its spacious findings with the outer wisdom of diet & exercise and all that they entail. The course provided many opportunities for experiential integration of the body-mind-emotion mindfulness strategies within the context of eating behaviors and one’s relationship to food.
~ Susan Pachman, MA EdS, Educational Therapist, Integrative Life Coach, ADHD Coach, Florida, USA
“I had an amazing experience in class – learned so much and I know that this is the answer to my problem. I hope to help others too.”
~ Registered Dietitian and Nutrition Researcher, Winter 2015
“Words cannot express how grateful I am for this class! I’m experiencing amazing benefits. Your warmth and knowledge are so helpful as is your curriculum and the way you manage the class & material. And I’ve gotten so much from the teach backs… So thank you, thank you, thank you!! I am so glad I decided to take your class”.
~ Licensed Therapist, USA, Spring 2015
“I was on the search for a deeper, more comprehensive understanding of mindful eating. In addition, I wanted to obtain a language and vocabulary to communicate the inner-workings of eating in a mindful way along with losing weight without dieting. This course provided me those tools along with fostering relationships I will have for a long time to come. Not only did I learn about food, but how to manage myself peacefully in all aspects of life. I leave this course lighter than I came in, both in heart and body. I recommend MB-EAT and Andrea Lieberstein to anyone with the desire to dive into this topic.”
~ Ashley Pardo, Health Coach and Professional Chef, Florida, Summer 2015
“Going through the MB-EAT training with Andrea was a wonderful experience. She was a very thoughtful and caring instructor. Her ability to guide the practices from her own experience, as well as her talent to weave everyone’s interests together, were some of the highlights of the program….This was a life-changing experience”
~ Daniela Araujo, Anthropologist, PhD in Social Sciences, Brazil, Spring 2015
“…The program truly incorporates the practice of mindfulness. Some programs don’t teach meditation. I see this as an important part of mindful eating. Research shows meditation can help change the brain in ways that may reduce drives to overeat. I also like that the program addresses self-compassion…We need a gentler approach to weight management and this program delivers. I also liked that the MB-EAT program was offered on-line. I was pleasantly surprised with this format. It really worked. I felt connected to my group and our provider Andrea. There was a lot practical application. We partnered with group members and actually practiced leading the meditation exercises. I didn’t have a lot of experience leading meditations prior to this course. I now feel confident in my ability to do this. I would highly recommend this program!
~ Micheline Vargas, DrPH, RCEP Spring 2015
The MB-EAT program is a very powerful tool to facilitate dietary change at a deep level. The tools and techniques I learned will help me inspire and engage my nutrition clients in lifelong change.
~ Jason Mousel, MS RD, San Francisco State University
Loved_it!!!! This course has deepened my mindfulness practice. Not only am I eating more mindfully, I’m walking more mindfully, communicating more mindfully, listening more mindfully and most importantly it has helped me establish a spiritual connection with the food I cook and eat. Eating is now a spiritual practice for me and that has brought a deeper sense of compassion into my life.
~ Phil Salvanti, MBSR Instructor Fall 2015
“MB-EAT is a missing link to healthful eating! Many of us know what we should eat and that we should exercise regularly. However, that doesn’t always lead to sustaining change. MB-EAT increases awareness and helps us pause before we take that next mouthful and ask ourselves questions like “do I really want this?” Andrea is an extremely knowledgeable, compassionate, and gifted instructor! This is a great course for health professionals who want to learn new state-of-the art information that can be translated into helping patients who want to learn new coping strategies to healthful eating. Thank you!!”
