My Life as an Eating Psychology Coach

  • My Life as an Eating Psychology Coach: Alexandria Marcus

    What made you want to become an Eating Psychology Coach? I can now see that my whole life prepared me to become an Eating Psychology Coach, and the moment it crystallized for me involved Oprah. Yes, you heard that, the Big “O.” I appeared on her show with my teacher Geneen Roth (author of Women, Food & God) to share my own journey about how I transformed my own relationship with food and body. In that experience [...]

    What made you want to become an Eating Psychology Coach? I decided to become an Eating Psychology Coach because the entirety of my college career and young adult life, my thoughts, emotions and behaviors were ruled by the shame I’ve felt about my body. I was caught in a toxic cycle of binge eating and chronic dieting that fostered a lot of self-rejection, self-punishment, and a lack of self-trust. I didn't have an eating disor [...]

    What made you want to become an Eating Psychology Coach in the first place? I decided to become a Certified Eating Psychology Coach because I was searching for something more than just a course on nutrition. I attended the Institute of Integrative Nutrition and discovered it didn’t address the core of weight loss or healthy eating. With a Masters in Counseling, I desired to dig deeper into why people struggle with food. The Trai [...]

  • My Life as an Eating Psychology Coach: Caitlin McCarthy

    What made you want to become an Eating Psychology Coach? Two main things, really. Firstly, I am an Accredited Nutritionist and always felt like there was “something missing” in my training. I looked into studying herbs, and becoming a Naturopath, but that didn’t feel right. I then stumbled across the Institute for the Psychology of Eating. Everything I read about the Certification Program and the content totally resonat [...]

    What made you want to become an Eating Psychology Coach in the first place? After spending two years working toward a dual certification in nutritional counseling and health coaching, I’ve been very effective at helping clients improve their nutrition and their health.

  • My Life as an Eating Psychology Coach: Natalie Baack

    What made you want to become an Eating Psychology Coach? I have struggled with chronic dieting and overeating since I was 12. Working in the intense and stressful world of the film industry for over 10 years made it nearly impossible for me to heal and recover. At age 32 my health was a mess, ranging from immunity issues to an ever-increasing weight gain. Even though I knew what I had to do in practice, I found it nearly impossi [...]

  • My Life as an Eating Psychology Coach: Kathy Elkind

    What made you want to become an Eating Psychology Coach? I was teaching Nourishment Cleanse classes (eating whole plant based foods) and my clients were feeling great and learning what foods felt best for their bodies. Still, after the class, about half of them fell back into overeating, binge eating, or emotional eating patterns - and so did I! I knew dieting was not the answer and that there was so much more to learn. I had hea [...]

  • My Life as an Eating Psychology Coach: Macy Migchelbrink

    What made you want to become an Eating Psychology Coach? I wanted to become a Certified Eating Psychology Coach to explore the deeper meaning behind binge eating and overeating.

It became clear to me, after Yoga Teacher Training, that the next phase of ev [...]

  • My Life as an Eating Psychology Coach: Britt Laine

    What made you want to become an Eating Psychology Coach? I was a holistic nutritionist who kept attracting people who had issues that were deeper than food, which manifested as a troubled relationship with eating. I noticed that you can tell people what to eat, and how to deal with stress, but that it has nothing to do with whether they will follow through. I thought I was ineffective, but really I just didn’t have the training, [...]

I became an Eating Psychology Coach because of the frustration not only in my personal relationship with food and body but also those of my clients. My own personal struggles with anxiety, body image, and fear of food led me to seeking the answer to this un-invited visitor. I wanted to help with the disappointment my clients experienced: getting results, only to lose them [...]
