Craving ChangeTM

Created by Registered Dietitian Wendy Shah & Clinical Psychologist Dr. Colleen Cannon, Craving Change® is a cognitive-behavioural program designed to tackle problematic eating & to help individuals develop a healthier relationship with food. Individuals who take the Craving Change® course will discover reasons for eating the way they do & learn to take steps to change their problematic eating habits.


Please note – this program will NOT explore diets, what to eat, when to eat or how much to eat & will not discuss diabetes management or diabetes medications.


Our outreach Registered Dietitian & Certified Diabetes Educator who is also a Certified Craving Change® facilitator is currently offering this FREE program virtually via a platform called Microsoft Teams.  Access to a computer with audio & visual capabilities is ideal but not required. Priority will be given to those individuals currenty enrolled in a medical bariatric program as well as for individuals with diabetes. For those interested in pursuing bariatric surgery, completeing Craving Change® is required.
