As a way to to fully understand the cause of your eating challenge, you tell your story to a compassionate, non-judgmental listener.
At the Institute for the Psychology of Eating I trained in a new field of study called Mind Body Nutrition. Together we will explore the psychophysiology of how thoughts, feelings and beliefs can impact your nutritional metabolism and health.
Originated by Marc David, the founder of the Institute for the Psychology of Eating, Mind Body nutrition goes far beyond classical nutrition because it focuses on the connections between brain, body and behavior.
Simply put, what we eat is only a part of the story of good nutrition. Another piece of the puzzle is who we are as eaters. Together we will discover how factors such as stress physiology, the relaxation response, breathing, awareness, pleasure, meal timing and much more profoundly influence digestion and calorie burning.
We will apply the best strategies from nutritional science and eating psychology to focus on what is right for your personal style. We will experiment with practical results-oriented strategies to find solutions to your eating challenge. Your eating and health concerns are a place to explore and the challenges you face are an opportunity for growth and self improvement.
