The CAMP System can work its miracles only if we actually live it, use it, and stick with it. This requires a willingness to make changes in ourselves---changes that will make us skilled eaters and that help us reclaim our relinquished power. The Living CAMP resources below are mindful techniques, approaches and choices you can make to bring new dimensions to your eating.
