Emotional Brain Training
Emotional Brain Training, or EBT, gives you the tools to make changes in your life around diet, exercise, and more that last a lifetime.
Our dietitians have found EBT classes help patients get to the root of obesity and eating issues, much of which is stress-related. Retraining your brain can help you heal your body.
