Did You Know You're on a Metabolic Journey?
 
Marc David, founder of the Institute for the Psychology of Eating, shares some fascinating insights into the body’s metabolism in this video. He explains why people’s plans to lose weight and boost energy tend to fail simply because they don’t have the entire picture of their metabolism. Tune in to understand how one's metabolic journey starts at conception, and how that journey has high and low points that we can learn from and grow with.
 
Key Insights
 
check mark button Weight loss and fat burning plans often don’t succeed because people do not have the full picture of their metabolism. The body’s metabolism has to be seen in a holistic way to achieve these goals.
 
check mark button The body’s metabolism is a lifelong story that begins at conception and continues till a person draws their last breath. The high and low points of that journey can tell us a lot, if we learn to listen.
 
check mark button We can learn a lot from the high points of the body’s metabolic journey, such as good health and vitality. We also learn from the low points such as disease, illness, weakness, pain and weight challenges, and can grow from these.
 
check mark button Fighting hunger, judging your body and other such self-abuse prevents the body from reaching its health, weight and fitness goals. A positive strategy needs to be employed to reach those goals.
 
check mark button Loving and nurturing the body is the way to travel along with the body on its metabolic journey. This is the way to transform our food and body challenges, for good.
 
With his dual training in clinical nutrition and psychology, Marc David has spent the last 40 years helping people around the world heal their relationship with food. As the founder of the Institute for the Psychology of Eating, he reaches millions each year through his books, speaking engagements, celebrated podcast series, and his internationally-acclaimed Mind Body Eating Coach Certification Training.

A 25-Year Old Works with Weight & Womanhood
 
In this episode, Marc David, teacher and eating psychology pioneer, works with Tess, a 25-year-old woman from New Zealand. Tess often finds herself compulsively eating, and seeks to transform this pattern, lose weight, and feel more confident. Additionally, Tess wants to be a mother and believes losing weight is key to a healthy pregnancy.  Tune in to listen as Marc helps Tess begin a new chapter in her relationship with food and body. 
 
Key Insights:
 
check mark button Many eating challenges, such as compulsive eating, are rooted in negative psychology.
 
check mark button Transforming compulsive eating is multidimensional and unique to each person — there truly isn’t a “one-size-fits-all” approach.
 
check mark button Compulsive eating, like other eating challenges, can create euphoria in the body. Recognizing this, we can begin to look for other ways to relieve stress.
 
check mark button Learning to love oneself into a better relationship with food means, in part, loving ourselves through our perceived eating “mistakes.”
 
check mark button Many of us benefit from the mantra, “I’m not a disappointment. I’m a success.” Train yourself to believe it.

Why Do I Sabotage Myself with Food?
 
Do you feel like you sabotage yourself with food? Join Marc David, Founder of The Institute for the Psychology of Eating, on the topic of self-sabotage and why we sometimes use food to thwart ourselves. So often, the reasons why we go against our own best interests are not so obvious. Learn more in today’s episode!
 
Key Highlights:
 
check mark button Here’s the true definition of the word sabotage: Sabotage means to deliberately destroy, damage, or obstruct. Please note the word deliberate.
 
check mark button Some of the most compelling psychological models have this to say: we're not just one person, we're a crowd...watch the episode to learn more!
 
check mark button We all have a child within us who wants what it wants when it wants it. We also have an inner teenager or a rebel who could care less about what anybody else thinks…
 
check mark button When we go against ourselves, what most people call self-sabotage is more likely the voice of our inner child, or our inner teenager, or the inner rebel inside us that takes over.
 
check mark button Your job is to never fight, belittle, or attack yourself. Your job is to listen, to learn, to embrace, to forgive, and to act with skill and kindness.

Are you ready to transform your relationship with food in a lasting and meaningful way? What if you could help others find the path to greater freedom and joy with food as well? 
 
In today’s episode, 57-year old Deborah wishes to improve her health while losing 70+ pounds, and she comes to Marc David looking for help. A teacher who dreams of becoming a chef, Deborah is frustrated by her efforts to lose the weight and keep it off. Through the course of their work, Marc helps Deborah recognize the key role that stress plays in her emotional eating habits, and the need to find other ways to regulate her nervous system outside of food. Listen now!
 
Key Insights:
 
check mark button Stress can drive many of us to engage in disordered eating, whether emotional eating, overeating, binge eating, or other related patterns. 
 
check mark button “Stress eating” is a natural phenomenon rooted in both our psychology and biology. Bringing compassion and self-understanding to ourselves is the first step in changing this unwanted pattern.
 
check mark button There are biological reasons why we feel good after eating. Turning to food in times of stress isn’t inherently “wrong” or “bad.” 
 
check mark button The first step to transforming emotional eating is through awareness. Because only once you become aware of something, can you change it.
 
check mark button Forgiving oneself for one’s perceived failures and shortcomings is another key towards choosing life and initiating effective weight loss.
 
Marc David’s twin areas of expertise in nutrition and psychology has helped numerous people overcome challenges with food and emotional eating. Watch this episode of the Psychology of Eating podcasts to hear Deborah’s story!

A Mother Works with Her Long Term Eating Disorder
 
In this episode of The Psychology of Eating podcast, Marc David, Founder of the Institute for the Psychology of Eating, talks to Rachelle, who has been dealing with bulimia for nearly 30 years. Rachelle began binging and purging as an adolescent going through some difficult life changes. Despite her considerable efforts to overcome her disordered eating, she’s still struggling with it all these years later. This is compounded by the fact that she’s hidden her disorder from her 4 children, and has shared only minimal details with her husband. Now, she seeks Marc’s counsel to help her find a path towards greater self-love and a more peaceful relationship with food.
 
Key Insights:
  • Challenges with food often start in one's adolescence and can continue even decades later. However, the duration of an eating disorder shouldn’t be equated with one’s ability to overcome it. Growth and healing are possible at every age.
  • An eating disorder can manifest as a coping mechanism to deal with a traumatic event or stressful situation. Working with the trauma event(s) is a key first place to begin on the path to healing.
  • When an eating disorder developed as a childhood coping mechanism to stress or trauma, later in life we can find this part of ourselves is still stuck in childhood. 
  • A woman's relationship with her mother – or her daughter – can often determine her relationship with food. Therefore, doing inner work - whether with a psychotherapist or other skilled practitioner - can be very helpful in understanding the familial dynamics of one’s eating patterns.
  • Stepping out of shame and guilt, and cultivating honesty with oneself (and ultimately with others) is vital as we walk a more intentional path around food and body.

What’s the Perfect Nutritional Approach?
 
Does the perfect diet even exist? And if so, how do I find it? The answers may surprise you. Don’t miss out on this insightful look into why there are so many different approaches to healthy eating, and how to determine what is right for you! Listen now!
 
Highlights:
  • People want to find the perfect nutritional approach and because there are so many people looking for the one true way to eat, there are lots of experts out there promoting their version of an ideal diet. 
  • For every scientific study that says meat is bad, there's a study showing you why it's good. Same for wine. Same for salt. Same for a vegetarian diet, a vegan diet, a paleo diet, a keto diet, a raw food diet... The list goes on and no wonder people are confused. 
  • There are as many accurate, useful, and perfect nutritional approaches as there are people on the planet. 
  • As a consumer of nutritional information, you simply need to relax and get comfortable with the fact that the field can be widely chaotic and dispersed. 
  • We're on a nutritional journey, whether we like it or not. If you're a human being alive on planet earth, then you are an eater and you need to learn how to best make that work for you. So can you enjoy that part of your journey?

Getting Out of The Trap of Endless Dieting
 
Did you know that an estimated 45 million Americans go on a diet every year? Many of these same people are actually chronic dieters - meaning they’ve been on a diet for many years. And what’s even more shocking is that so many dieters never achieve lasting success for themselves; they either never get to their desired weight, or they only do so for a short time and then put the weight right back on.
 
If you’ve been dieting for years without lasting results, it might be time to take a different approach. Watch today’s episode to learn more about how to get out of the trap of endless dieting!
  • The majority of people I work with over the years report that they achieved their weight loss goal with extreme dieting, often accompanied by intense exercise. In other words, they got where they wanted to go by unsustainable measures. 
  • The interesting thing is that so many people have the false belief that, “When I look or weigh differently, then I'll be happy.” By the way, you didn't invent this kind of thinking, if you have it. The world did.
  • Diets don't work because when we consistently eat in a way that is too low in calories for the body, which means too low in nutrition, too low in essential nutrients, and too low in what the body needs as its energy requirements...When we do that, our metabolism adjusts downwards over time.
  • Dieting instructs the body very directly to store fat and to not build muscle. Muscle tissue, by the way, is by far and away the main source of calorie burning in the body. So you want your body creating muscle.
  • Your job is to learn how to nourish yourself with food. Your job is to learn how to be an eater.

In Session With Marc David: A Beautiful New Beginning With Food and Body
 
Join Eating Psychology expert Marc David in conversation with Lisa in this episode of the Psychology of Eating Podcast as they delve deep into the difference between losing weight and getting healthy. Marc shows us how to develop the right frame of mind to move towards our natural weight, rather than strive to be unrealistically thin. 
 
Key Insights:
  • Eating challenges can start during childhood. However, you can transform these challenges at any age … whether you’re in your 40s, 50s, 60s, or beyond. 
  • Nutrient-rich food choices make you healthier and result in natural weight loss, while intuitive eating allows you to tune into what your body is truly hungering for.
  • Societal conditioning helps perpetuate ‘diet culture’ and often causes disordered eating patterns. Learning to identify these unhelpful messages is key to turning the corner in unwanted eating challenges.
  • Being happy with yourself marks the return to consistent nourishment and good health.
