Eating Psychology and Body Image

Wendy is a Certified Eating Psychology Coach through the Psychology of Eating Institute, which she earned in 2015 after completing her Masters’s degree. Having experienced many years of eating and body image issues herself, Wendy has a personal interest and passion in this area. So many women in our culture are plagued with dieting, body hate, and overall exhaustion and insecurity from years of struggle in these areas. She doesn’t see your eating and body image challenges as merely a sign that something is “wrong” with you, but rather as a place where we can more fully explore some of the personal dimensions in life that impact food, weight, and health. Oftentimes, our eating challenges are connected to work, money, relationships, family, intimacy, life stress and so much more. Wendy looks to support you with coaching strategies and nutrition principles that are nourishing, sustainable, and that yield lasting results. One of her primary passions is to help women become empowered by facing these issues head-on and in a very compassionate, bold way.

Main Components of 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 and health are intimately connected to other primary life dimensions — relationship, family, work, sexuality, our search for meaning and fulfillment, and so much more. It is a powerful breakthrough approach.

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, 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.
