Rhonda, age 53, has dreams of becoming an actress, traveling the world, kayaking, scuba diving, and finding her life partner. But one thing has been holding her back: her weight. Rhonda would like to lose about 100 pounds, weight she slowly gained over the years but has been unable to lose since quitting smoking four years ago.
 
In her coaching session with eating psychology expert Marc David, Rhonda shares that she frequently binge eats as a way to deal with stress, loneliness, and boredom. She has a robust career, managing twenty people in her position, but many of Rhonda’s dreams remain unfulfilled. With a lust for life, love, and drama, Rhonda’s inner life simply doesn’t match her outer life … and she’s ready for a big change.
 
As Marc explores, so often we’ll wait to live out our dreams and become the “real” us until we’ve achieved our weight loss goals. But that has too many of us waiting our entire lives, whether we have 10 pounds or 100 to lose. Instead of losing weight, we lose the opportunity to live the life we were meant to live, the one that calls out to our hearts to claim and experience.
 
In this episode, Marc shares the key paradigm shift needed for all of us who have been on the weight loss journey for years or decades. It’s a session you won’t want to miss…

In this episode of The Psychology of Eating Podcast, eating psychology teacher Marc David coaches 32-year-old Audrey from France, who currently lives in the UK. Audrey is seeking to redefine her relationship with stress, a state she frequently finds herself in despite making massive progress overcoming a history of trauma, and anorexia and bulimia. Audrey is acutely aware of how she responds to stress, which is to disconnect from her feelings and body, and in her words, “numb out.” They explore how trauma and eating disorders can themselves become a source of stress, as well as practical strategies for living a more relaxed and balance life.

Gabriela, age 25, moved from Bulgaria to the US several years ago, and started noticing that food was becoming a challenge. Back in her home country, she never really put much thought into food. But when she moved to the States, someone pointed out that she had some extra weight, and Gabriela became bothered by the comment. She started a new routine of going to the gym, and restricting her food intake, but quickly found herself starting to binge eat. The pandemic hit, she broke up with her boyfriend, and her thoughts turned to consuming food … lots of it! She would eat massive amounts of food to relieve the stress, grief, and loneliness of her life.
 
After realizing that her eating challenges were getting worse, Gabriela began therapy, and looked for other solutions, including the Institute’s 8-week public program “Transform Your Relationship with Food.” Gabriela is now well on her way to healing her challenges with binge and emotional eating, but still can’t help feel like a bit of a food criminal when she binges on food in the dark at night, or when she squirrels away food when no one is looking. Ready for a big shift, she turns to eating psychology master coach Marc David, for help.

Founder of the Institute for the Psychology of Eating, Marc David speaks to esteemed filmmaker of the “Transcendence” docuseries and the documentary, “Hungry for Change,” James Colquhoun. Like many of us passionate about health and wellness, James’ journey into healthy living began after a life-changing and tragic event. His father developed multiple medical conditions, and did what most people do: go to their doctor and start taking various medications. As his father’s health continued to decline, James became determined to figure out how to use nutrition and holistic health to reverse his dad’s medical diagnoses. 
 
After reading book after book, beginning with the classic, Diet for a New America by John Robbins, James and his partner Laurentine learned everything they could about health and nutrition. And as he became more informed, James gradually convinced his father to let go of the medications that seemed to only worsen his conditions and lead to terrible side effects. 
 
And the result? His father was able to drop all his medication within three months of implementing nutritional changes, lost 50 pounds, and resumed his active lifestyle of running every day.
 
From this, James’ career as a health crusader and educator was born. In this interview, you’ll hear some of his powerful distinctions around the healing power of food that have changed the lives of millions of people around the world. 
 
Tune in now for a truly inspiring conversation between two of the world’s leading voices in health and nutrition!

Do you have a nutrition-linked health condition? Then you won’t want to miss this week’s episode of The Psychology of Eating Podcast, where you’ll hear the story of 44-year old Aldona from the Netherlands.
 
Ten years ago, Aldona was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, a diagnosis that affects an estimated 20 million people in the U.S. alone. When she was newly diagnosed, Aldona tried to heal her condition with high-quality foods. She has tried many diet approaches, like Paleo, and has done strict elimination diets in an attempt to see which foods might be most problematic.
 
Unfortunately, none of her attempts have improved her Hashimoto’s. And now, to complicate things, Aldona has developed Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), which she attributes to the stress of trying to manage her Hashimoto’s. Never having experienced digestive issues or food intolerances before, Aldona has become stressed out and very confused about what to eat. In her words, she no longer trusts her instincts about which foods are best for her.
 
In their coaching session, master eating psychology coach Marc David helps Aldona look beyond nutritional solutions. How are these conditions asking Aldona to transform as a human being? How can she learn to quiet her mind, and tune into what her body needs? In what ways can she discover how to live with these conditions, while improving her quality of life and nurturing herself along the way?

Jen has had challenges around weight since she was 12 years of age. Now a 40-year-old mother of four, she wishes the weight would just melt off effortlessly. Jen has lost weight using Jenny Craig and similar approaches, but the weight always seems to come back. A graduate of The Institute’s Mind Body Eating Coach Certification Training, Jen now looks back at her past weight loss efforts and realizes so much of it has been driven by weight hate. She wants to find a more sustainable approach, one where self-attack is not in the driver’s seat. 
 
As she works with Marc David, Jen unlocks some of the key psychological roots behind her struggles with weight and body image. What unfolds is a moving conversation on feeling misunderstood and how that can drive us to self-harm, tending to our inner child’s needs, honoring the inner rebel who hates dieting, and how to bring self-forgiveness into our lives and relationship with food and body.
