This presentation will provide a theoretical and practical overview of Satter’s eating competence model as a promising weight neutral intervention for individuals with diabetes and disordered eating. Eating competence describes being positive, comfortable, and flexible with eating, in addition to being reliable about getting enough to eat. Its core treatment components include promoting a positive attitude about food, food acceptance skills, internal regulation skills, and food contextual skills. We will offer practical tools and strategies for how to apply elements of the eating competence model in the complex clinical arena of treating individuals with diabetes and comorbid disordered eating. We will also introduce specific clinical interventions that our team has piloted, which utilize components of the eating competence model for patients with loss of control eating and comorbid diabetes.
