A Young Woman Deals with Gluten Sensitivity

https://psychologyofeating.online/ss/
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?
 
Briana is a busy graduate student who lives with gluten sensitivity. While Briana doesn’t have celiac disease, she has all the markers of gluten sensitivity: bloating and stomach pain, fatigue, and mood fluctuations. She’s taken breaks from gluten before with amazing benefits but is struggling to let go of her love of gluten-based foods. Listen in as Marc David, Founder and Primary Teacher at the Institute for the Psychology of Eating works with Briana on practical strategies for managing her gluten sensitivity, while also helping her understand the important connections between stress and food sensitivities.
 
Key Insights:
 
check mark button Gluten-based foods are everywhere and they can be hard to give up. The first step in dealing with gluten sensitivities is recognizing you have them. This means tuning into your body as you’re eating a given food and noticing how you feel afterward. 
 
check mark button If you suspect you have a sensitivity to gluten, getting tested with your doctor or functional medicine practitioner is an important next step.
 
check mark button Symptoms of gluten sensitivity can include bloating, stomach pain, skin issues like breakouts, mood changes, lethargy, forgetfulness, and difficulty focusing. 
 
check mark button When we binge on food that makes us feel bad, a common response is to beat ourselves up. It’s important to acknowledge that giving up foods we enjoy is tough, and giving ourselves a hard time is counterproductive to changing our eating habits.
 
check mark button Finding support from others is also important as we retool our diet. Sometimes the people we love the most have a hard time supporting us as we make changes. While that doesn’t feel great, that doesn’t mean that others can’t be there for us. Look for those people and find the support you need and deserve.
 
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.

Coming Into Our Queenly Power Around Body Image

https://psychologyofeating.online/ss/
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 this episode of The Psychology of Eating Podcast, Marc speaks with Gabriela, a Mexico City resident and health-based entrepreneur who has recently completed The Mind Body Eating Coach Certification Training from the Institute for the Psychology of Eating. Gabriela has been dealing with body image issues for many years and recognizes that these issues are affecting her ability to effectively coach her clients. Tune in as Marc helps Gabriela identify how she can find peace around her body image so that she can do the same for her own clients. 
 
Key Insights:
 
check mark button Many of us get fixated on being a certain size or shape, while largely ignoring self-care or engaging in practices that improve our health, energy, and vitality. If this is you, just know you deserve more than trying to get yourself to fit into a certain size. You’re worthy of your love, of which self-care is a direct reflection.
 
check mark button Ironically, those of us who are fitness or health professionals can be particularly prone to obsession around dieting, food restriction, excessive exercise, and the like. So there’s an opportunity to ask ourselves: are we engaging in these activities out of self-love? If not, we must cultivate the wisdom to refine our approach and learn to give our bodies what they need and want.
 
check mark button We’ve all heard it before, but in order to help others, we truly do have to learn how to walk our talk. 
 
check mark button But please understand: this doesn’t mean being perfect. It means opening up our hearts and moving from a place of self and other compassion. It means understanding we’re all humans, here to learn and grow on this journey of life.
 
check mark button Exercising and eating right for our unique bodies should create a kind of natural joy and happiness. If they’re not, it’s time to evaluate our approach.

Our Relationship with Food is Like A Dance

https://psychologyofeating.online/ss/
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? 
 
Maria is a 31-year old director of a dance and cardio training program who has a lifelong love of nutrition and finds herself generally happy with her relationship to food and body. But she finds herself often busy at work on her computer, and often missing her body’s cues for when and what to eat. In today’s episode of The Psychology of Eating Podcast, eating psychology expert Marc David helps Maria develop a more present and nuanced relationship with her appetite. Tune in now!
 
Key Insights:
 
check mark button Digestive problems, disordered eating, and body image issues have as much to do with why and how we eat, as they do with what we’re eating. 
 
check mark button To become an intuitive and mindful eater, identifying and trusting the body’s hunger cues is key.
 
check mark button Part of trusting our body’s cues is learning to trust ourselves as humans. Give yourself permission to experiment. Listen to what your body is telling you as you make different choices, and then refine those choices as you develop more body awareness.
 
check mark button Our relationship with food is much like dance. When we see eating from a place of self-connection, creative self-expression, and deep presence, we can find ourselves in a natural state of flow, joy, and true health.
 
check mark button Reframing our relationship with food in this way allows us to move away from old thought patterns of “good food” versus “bad food,” or “good choices” versus “bad choices.” This creates so much more internal space for ourselves, and we begin to experience food in an entirely different way.

A Woman Turns The Tide On Negative Self-Talk

https://psychologyofeating.online/ss/
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 this week’s episode of The Psychology of Eating Podcast, Marc works with Nikol, a 40-year old law professor from Croatia. Nikol acknowledges she’s a sensitive person who often turns to food, especially sugar, to manage her emotions. While Nikol is looking to lose weight, more than anything she wants to find freedom around food … to be able to enjoy it, but not need it to calm or numb her feelings. Tune in as Marc David, founder of The Mind Body Eating Coach Certification Training, helps her redefine what freedom around food truly means. 
 
Key Insights:
 
check mark button Childhood challenges and traumas go right to the core. As children, we have very simple means of regulating emotions – food being a key way to soothe and comfort.
 
check mark button The residue of these challenges continues through adulthood until we consciously face and work through them.
 
check mark button As adults, we can find ourselves confused why we have unwanted eating habits such as binging – and often completely overlook the deeper psychological reasons these habits were formed in the first place.  
 
check mark button Therefore, changing any unwanted eating habit must involve more than simply trying to eat less sugar or adhering to strict food rules. If you want sustainable change, learn about yourself, your past, and your psychology. Discover and tend to the places inside where you’re hurting.   
 
check mark button Paying attention to our inner dialogue – meaning how we speak to ourselves and about ourselves – is a good place to start changing from the inside out. Speak kindly, compassionately, and lovingly … you deserve it.

Why Emotional Metabolism is Key to a Vibrant, Healthy Life

Eating psychology expert and founder of the Institute for the Psychology of Eating, Marc David explains the concept of emotional metabolism. While physiological metabolism governs the literal breakdown of what we eat and drink, emotional metabolism is all about processing emotions that come up in the course of everyday life. As Marc explains, metabolizing our emotions is vital not just to our psychological health — but to our physical health as well. Don’t miss this insightful podcast!
 
Key Insights:
 
check mark button The body’s metabolism takes the air we breathe and the food and water we consume, and turns it into fuel while removing toxins. This is nutritional metabolism. 
 
check mark button Emotional metabolism involves the deliberate, consistent practice of allowing our emotions to surface. We then have the opportunity to become more conscious and present human beings.
 
check mark button When we don’t allow ourselves to feel and process our emotions, there can be a literal effect on the body’s physiology and organ systems.
 
check mark button Unwanted eating challenges such as overeating, binge eating, and emotional eating are often signs of unprocessed emotions or trauma.
 
check mark button Societal conditioning tells us to “suck it up” or “get with the program” — meaning, we’re often encouraged to suppress and deny our feelings. Rejecting this conditioning and embracing our feelings — including the challenging ones — is fundamental to enjoying a healthy and fulfilling life.
