Eating Psychology

 

What is Eating Psychology Coaching?
Eating Psychology Coaching is an exciting and cutting edge approach developed by the Institute for the Psychology of Eating. It effectively addresses weight concerns, binge eating, overeating, body image challenges, and various nutrition related health concerns. As an Eating Psychology Coach, my approach is positive and empowering. I view your eating challenges as a place where we can explore life events that impact food, weight, and health. You are not broken, and you don’t need to be fixed.  Our eating challenges can be connected to work, money, relationship, family, intimacy, life stress and so much more. I will custom tailor our sessions together to work in the places that are most relevant for you.  As your Sacramento Nutrition Coach, I support you with coaching strategies and nutrition principles that are nourishing, sustainable, and yield results.

What is Dynamic Eating Psychology?
Dynamic Eating Psychology is an important new field originated by Marc David, Founder of the Institute for the Psychology of Eating. It’s a positive, empowering and transformational approach that’s designed for anyone who eats. Each of us has a unique, fascinating, and ever changing relationship with food. Dynamic Eating Psychology affirms the primary importance of this relationship. It sees our challenges with eating, weight and health not as an indication that we’re broken, but as a beautiful opportunity to grow and evolve. Previously, eating psychology has been limited to those with clinical eating disorders. Dynamic Eating Psychology though, is for everyone. It affirms that our relationship with food has important lessons to teach us if we choose to listen. And it recognizes that our challenges with eating, weight and health are intimately connected to other primary life dimensions – relationship, family, work, sexuality, our search for meaning and fulfillment, and so much more. Dynamic Eating Psychology is a powerful breakthrough approach.  As your Sacramento Nutrition Coach, together we’ll explore and enrich your relationship with food.

What is Mind-Body Nutrition?
Mind-Body Nutrition is an exciting and timely new field that advances the practice of clinical nutrition by exploring the psychophysiology of how thoughts, feelings and beliefs impact nutritional metabolism and health. Originated by Marc David, Founder of the Institute for the Psychology of Eating, it goes far beyond classical nutrition by focusing on the fascinating connections between brain, body, and behavior. Simply put, what we eat is only half of the story of good nutrition. The other half is who we are as eaters. Mind Body Nutrition reveals how stress physiology, the relaxation response, breathing, awareness, pleasure, meal timing and much more profoundly influence digestion and calorie burning. And it offers practical and results-oriented strategies for the most commonly seen eating challenges and health issues of our times.   Have you ever felt like your body is speaking to you, but in a language you don’t understand? As your Sacramento Nutrition Coach, I guide you in sensing in and interpreting the messages to discover your unique body wisdom.
