'Tis the season for eating

Last week I blogged about a Turkey Trot race you can run in Baltimore to earn your Thanksgiving Dinner.

But those who aren't planning to run, but who still worry about their caloric intake, especially over the holiday season, might want to check out this lecture at The Center for Eating Disorders at Sheppard Pratt on Nov. 21. Author Evelyn Tribole will talk "about societal myths surrounding dieting and weight gain, and will give useful tips on how people can establish a healthy relationship with food," according to the center. 

Here's more:

As part of its annual fall community awareness event, The Center for Eating Disorders at Sheppard Pratt is pleased to present national nutrition expert and author, Evelyn Tribole. During her talk entitled "Intuitive Eating: Making Peace with Food," Tribole will educate attendees on the key principles involved in intuitive eating for individuals looking to strengthen or re-establish a healthy and peaceful relationship with food. ... Tribole's presentation will be informative, empowering and very timely given its close proximity to the holiday season, during which cultural pressures around food and dieting often intensify. After her talk, Tribole will take questions from the audience and participate in a book signing. Copies of her book will be available for purchase.

More information is available here.

About Exercists
Andrea Siegel, a reporter at The Baltimore Sun, covers mostly crime and courts in Annapolis and Anne Arundel County, as well as legal issues. She wishes she was more physically fit, and, as she's more fond of chocolate than exercise, fitness is a challenge. Her partner on a one-mile-plus daily walk is the family dog, a mixed breed named Moxie, and she exercises at the gym where the D.C. snipers once worked out.
Jerry Jackson has been a photo editor at The Baltimore Sun for 14 years and an avid cyclist for more than 30 years. Inspired by the movie "Breaking Away," he started racing as a teenager in Mississippi when leather "brain baskets" were still the norm. He regularly commutes to work by bike and still enters several mountain bike races a year for fun.

Leeann Adams, a multimedia editor at The Baltimore Sun, also dabbles in content for the mobile website and iPhone app and covers the Ravens via video. She did a triathlon to celebrate her 40th birthday and continues to swim, bike and run -- none of them quickly, though. Her biggest fitness challenge is to balance working, working out, spending time with her husband and being a mom to a 6-year-old boy.
