  • Pleasure and Calorie Burning – Video with Marc David

  • Here’s Why the Big Drug Companies Are Excited About Binge Eating – Video with Marc David

But as Marc David suggests in this thought-provoking new video from IPE, the solutions offered by the pharmaceutical industry may not be so good for us - and they might even take us farther away from our path of true healing.

  • Relax and Burn Calories – Video with Emily Rosen

    In today's weight-obsessed culture, it's easy to feel pressured about having a certain body shape or size. Messages from family, peers, or the media often tell us we need to be thin to be happy, and we can even start internalizing these beliefs and beat ourselves up for not having the perfect look. Some people think that these continual reminders about how important it is to get rid of excess pounds will keep us motivated to stay on a diet or put in our daily gym time, but the reality is sobering. Constant criticism, whether it's coming from others or from ourselves, keeps us in a state of chronic stress about our weight, which produces a biochemical chain reaction in our body that actually makes it much harder to burn fat - and may even have the opposite effect. In this compelling new podcast episode, Emily Rosen, Director of the Institute for the Psychology of Eating, explains why it's time to let go of fighting our bodies, and let the magic of life take over.

  • What is Epigenetics – Video with Marc David

    Most of us have been taught that our destiny is largely determined by our genes. It's true that there are certain aspects of our physiological makeup that are not likely to change overnight, such as the color of our eyes or the structure of our bones. However, a newly emerging branch of science known as "epigenetics" has now proven that we have more control over our genetic expression than we previously thought, because certain aspects of our genetic programming are now understood to be switched off or on by a variety of environmental factors. The beauty of this new discovery is its suggestion that by making different environmental shifts, we may be able to change which of our genes are expressed at any given time. Our genes no longer have to dictate our future. In this provocative new video from IPEtv, Marc David, founder of the Institute for the Psychology of Eating, explains why we no longer have to think of our DNA as an unchangeable plan for our future. Tune in and learn how you can start to take charge of your genetic expression and set yourself up for better health!
