Stress and weight
The Washington County Health Department is conducting a study using Emotional Brain Training, a method devised to treat stress and decrease the drive to overeat.
The weight-loss goal is about 10 pounds in seven weeks. The participants will meet as a group supporting each other while using the EBT skills to turn off the stress-fueled drives to overeat. The 32 participants chosen would need to be available to meet twice weekly for seven weeks on Mondays and Thursdays, 5:30 to 7 p.m., between Sept. 12 and Dec. 22. The group training and program materials are provided free.
For more information and to receive a phone screening for participation, call the health department at 240-313-3360; TTY 240-313-3391; or go to www.washhealth.org.
