Changing Food Habits, with Elota Patton

  • January 3 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Transforming how we act – around food, for instance – often requires a deeper level shift.

You go to a party, and here’s your plan: Eat only vegetables, two pieces of cheese, and two 2 crackers. You even eat an apple before the party to take the edge off.  Three hours and seven cookies, three handfuls of chips, eight ounces of cheese, and a piece of pie later, you wonder – what happened?!

How do we change our behaviors when they seem to run on their own? Let’s look at the “Logical Levels”  that influence us:

• Environment – the circumstances around us

• Behaviors – how we act in those circumstances

• Capabilities – what we know and don’t know how to do

• Beliefs and Values – rules about ourselves, the world, or other people

• Identity – our core experience of who we are

Each level holds and influences the level below it. So an unconscious belief can stop behavioral change.

This evening program includes a series of self-exploration exercises to assist you in re-imagining your relationship with food. Elota Patton has practiced as a Licensed Professional Counselor for 20+ years, with a specialty in surfacing and transforming limiting beliefs for couples and individuals. She taught business communication for 18 years at The University of Texas, and is an NLP master practitioner and a professional communication coach. 

Elota's class "Map Your Food Journey" takes place in February on Thursday evenings and you can learn about it at or register:

Cost for this meeetup: Sliding scale, $10-$30

    If you're new to AOMA, check your map... this is the SOUTH location on Westgate (not Anderson). We are in room E2. Just park in *any* of the adjacent AOMA parking lots and walk into the center courtyard and look for our signs. Although there are 6-8 campus buildings it's a very small campus and easy to find us from the center courtyard. See you there!
