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.
As an Mind Body Eating Coach, my approach is positive and empowering. I don’t see your eating and/or health challenges as a sign that “something is wrong with you” – but as a place where we can more fully explore some of the personal dimensions in life that impact food, health and weight. Oftentimes, our eating challenges are connected to work, money, relationship, family, intimacy, life stress, and so much more. By working on the places that are most relevant for you, success is more easily achieved. As an Mind Body Eating Coach, I look to support you with coaching strategies and nutrition principles that are nourishing, doable, sustainable, and that yield results.
