Discover the Missing Ingredient and Help Others Finally Solve their Food, Body, and Weight ProblemsApply for the Training
The Three Keys to Becoming a Successful Food and Body Coach (and the three mistakes to avoid)I want the Free Introductory Class
Is life calling you to be a healer, teacher, counselor, or coach? Are you inspired to step out of traditional forms of education and participate with like-minded learners at the cutting edge?
Would you like to embark on a health coaching career doing the work you love, that truly serves others, and that’s based on the most advanced knowledge about eating on the planet?
If so, you’ve come to the right place. Health coaching is a fast-growing industry. Leading experts predict that health coaches will take the place of doctors as champions of health and well-being. In fact, the movement’s already started!
Let me explain.
Despite the billions of dollars poured into all kinds of programs to keep us healthy, traditional approaches to food and body problems don’t work. Here are some sobering facts:
The bottom line is that we’re not getting healthier. We’re worse off than ever. Our solutions to these problems haven’t worked. It’s time for a change. We need to shift our paradigm and go beyond the failed methods of the past.
We need to reach a new realm where food is no longer about deprivation, fear and dread, but rather a source of nourishment, vibrancy, and joy.
Before I tell you the good news that will go a long way towards solving our health and eating crisis, I want to let you know a bit about me.
My name is Marc David, and I’m the Founder and lead faculty member of the Institute for the Psychology of Eating in beautiful Boulder, Colorado. I’m a teacher and consultant in Eating Psychology and the author of the classic, groundbreaking and bestselling books Nourishing Wisdom and The Slow Down Diet.
For over three decades, I’ve been an innovator in eating psychology and nutrition. I earned my M.A. at Sonoma State University in Psychology and trained at the Benson-Henry Institute for Mind Body Medicine and SUNY Upstate Medical School.
I got into this work because as a young child I was profoundly unhealthy. In fact, I nearly died at a young age. This experience led me on a search for a cure … and to my extensive involvement in clinical nutrition, eating psychology, and different healing modalities.
I’ve held senior consulting positions at Canyon Ranch Resorts, the Johnson & Johnson Corporation, the Disney Company, and the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health. I’ve also served on the editorial board of Alternative Therapies in Health and Medicine.
My work has been featured on CNN and NBC, and in The New York Times, Chicago Times, McCall’s, Glamour, Elle, Yoga Journal, WebMD, and hundreds more publications. My books have been translated into over 10 languages. I’ve presented at a long list of professional settings, including Harvard University, the Institute for Functional Medicine, and The National Institute for the Clinical Application of Behavioral Medicine. And I’ve mentored many of the luminaries in the fields of nutrition and natural medicine.
I’ve personally logged thousands of hours working with people just like you over the last 30 years in a full range of nutrition and food challenges: weight concerns, body image struggles, overeating, binge eating, emotional eating, endless dieting, weight loss resistance, eating disorders, digestive issues, mood concerns, fatigue, immunity, you name it. I founded the Institute as a way to channel my passion into an effective, uplifting, results-driven approach to the ever-increasing number of eating challenges and nutrition-linked health concerns facing all of us.
I’ve been driven by one compelling question: How can we combine the best of nutritional science and eating psychology to serve people in a profound and truly effective way? To this end, I’ve originated two unique new approaches – Dynamic Eating Psychology™ and Mind Body Nutrition™
As Featured In
Traditional approaches to healthy living leave out the missing ingredient – Dynamic Eating Psychology – that’s the key to conquering the battles of overeating, binge eating, endless dieting, and the myriad of related health consequences. I know that’s a bold statement, but I’ve spent the better part of 30 years researching why it’s true. In a nutshell, our entire approach to food is seriously flawed.
I’ll tell you more about the missing ingredient in a bit, but first I want to share some good news. The Institute for the Psychology of Eating is now enrolling students for our groundbreaking Eating Psychology & Mind Body Eating Coach Certification Training. The most advanced certification training of its kind, it provides you with the skill-set and confidence to build a lucrative business solving the most common and compelling eating concerns shared by so many people.
The Institute’s Mind Body Eating Coach Certification Training is a premier professional program that enables health practitioners to finally help others master their health, fitness, and eating challenges while making a great living. In our Mind Body Eating Coach Certification Training, we put current findings and research from neuroscience, psychology and nutrition to work in our protocols and strategies. We train our practitioners to help catalyze much-needed breakthroughs with their clients.
I mentioned that health coaching is a fast-growing industry. People are finally realizing that a “one size fits all strategy” simply doesn’t work, and health coaches are leading the charge in a whole new approach to personalized wellness.
The Training is delivered via an easy-to-use multimedia platform that features videos, audios, slideshows, handouts, notes, protocols, live teleclasses, recommended readings, online forums, and an optional virtual event at the end. We combine the best of online learning with lots of personal contact with me and with our caring and knowledgeable support team to help you get the most out of your educational experience.
We believe this is the way school should be – practical, authentic, inspiring, transformational and fun. The core training runs about 250 hours and is designed to be completed in about 8 hours a week for 32 weeks. Passing a short test at the end of each module is required for Certification, as we are regulated by the Colorado Department of Higher Education, Division of Private Occupational Schools.
You can take this Training with you wherever you go. Whether you’re traveling, have a full-time career, are a busy parent, or you’re in a life transition, the Training is designed to easily fit your lifestyle. You can access the material on your computer, tablet, or smartphone. All you need is an Internet connection! We’ve created a user-friendly online experience that makes learning effortless and enjoyable. This is the way to study and advance your career – in your own time, and at your own convenience.
We have graduates in over 60 countries and because the work we teach is so cutting edge, our coaches have a unique position in the marketplace. Many of our graduates have established virtual practices serving clients internationally.
Are you ready for a groundbreaking approach? The Institute has originated the important new field of Dynamic Eating Psychology. It’s a positive, generous, and life affirming view of our relationship with food. It recognizes that our eating challenges are intimately connected to all of what makes us human – relationship, family, work, sexuality, spirituality, our search for fulfillment, and much more. And it sees our concerns with food and body NOT as an indication that we’re broken, but as a powerful opportunity to grow and evolve. Though Dynamic Eating Psychology is applicable to those with eating disorders, it’s designed as an eating psychology for EVERYONE who struggles with food and body challenges.
The Institute’s Mind Body Eating Coach Certification Training goes far beyond the scope of a basic nutrition certification. Our training in Dynamic Eating Psychology and Mind-Body Nutrition is the only one of its kind in the world. We offer this as a Distance Learning Program that you can take online from anywhere, with a powerful curriculum that certifies you as an Eating Psychology & Mind Body Nutrition Practitioner. This unique professional training will leave you with a strong skill-set and the confidence to work with the most commonly seen and important eating concerns of our times: weight, body image, overeating, binge eating, emotional eating, endless dieting, digestion, fatigue, immunity, mood and much more.
This fully approved and regulated Certification Training is delivered in 7 Self-Study
Modules, released every 4-6 weeks over the course of 8 months.
This is an exciting and timely new approach that provides the missing ingredient to nutrition. What we eat is half of the story of good nutrition. The other half of the story is who we are as eaters.
Mind Body Nutrition is the psychophysiology of how our thoughts, feelings, beliefs, levels of stress and relaxation, our personal story and more profoundly impact our digestion, assimilation, calorie burning, and nutritional status.
I’ve been been teaching this unique body of work for over 30 years, and my approach incorporates insights, tools and strategies that work. Learn from powerful case studies, clear science, provocative ideas, and practical coaching techniques that deliver. Far too many nutrition trainings are dry and uninspired, and are taught by people who haven’t actually coached others.
Here, you’ll experience a style of learning that’s skills-intensive, full of wisdom, depth, and caring, and personally transformative.
Learn from an eclectic and highly informative collection of books written by some of the most respected leaders in the health and personal growth fields. The optional reading list is a great support for the learning process.
We also provide suggested introspective exercises based upon these books to help facilitate personal development, while honing your professional skills.
Review our powerful, transformative content anytime and anywhere. Audio files and handouts are easily downloadable and yours to keep for life! Come back to material you want to spend extra time with, and go deeper into the learning experience for years to come. Many of our students share that they re-listen to classes whenever they need a refresher or extra inspiration.
One of our top priorities is that students feel supported and connected. Because everyone begins and ends the Training at the same time, a wonderful sense of community is created. Lifetime relationships are made, professional alliances are forged, and students feel part of something greater.
Our Student Services team is responsive and caring. You can email us anytime, reach out in the forums, or connect with me live during scheduled monthly teleclass calls.
Built into the Training website, we’ve created an exclusive online forum for you to engage with fellow students and Institute staff around training content. Staffed by our Certified Coaches, this is a great way to connect with the Institute team and your colleagues around the world. We also have a private Facebook group for professional networking opportunities.
These platforms allow you to dive into course content, professional development and your own relationship with food, while receiving support from peers and Institute staff.
We live in a time where meaningful work is so important. Experience a career where you can be of real service while earning a rewarding income. Mind Body Eating Coaches can earn anywhere from $75 – $250 an hour in private practice. And career choices are endless. Our graduates work one-on-one; they teach; they work in corporations, clinics and health facilities; they build online businesses, and so much more. So whether you want to have your own private practice or work in a wellness organization, this program positions you perfectly to do the work you love.
As a Mind Body Eating Coach, you’ll have a unique set of skills that so many people are hungry for and are fascinated by. People are tired of the same old messages that don’t work. Our Training helps you stand out in a highly competitive marketplace. We’re the only school in the world that’s training practitioners in an eating psychology for everyone. You’ll have the confidence to know that you’re doing groundbreaking work that sets you apart in a booming industry.
It’s a beautiful and rare feeling to know that you’re accessing your deepest inborn gifts and giving them to the world. We’d love for you to have that experience. Unlike other trainings, we don’t take a “cookie cutter” approach. We want you to discover your unique style and talents as a helping professional.
We’ve designed this training to bring out the best in you. We believe it’s time for each one of us to share our special gifts with the people who need them the most.
Confidence is everything when working with clients. When you receive a great education, the poise and self-assurance to work with clients naturally results. We take special care to teach the kinds of skills that will help you work with clients that others might consider difficult.
We also have a peer coaching program for you to practice virtual coaching throughout the Training.With tools, protocols, real case studies, and plenty of practice, you’ll be poised for success.
Overcome your own challenges around food and health and use your experience to deliver compassionate, meaningful coaching to your clients. You don’t need to be perfect to help others – you simply need to have skill, care, and be one step ahead. You’ll discover how your own journey with food can be a powerful source of insight, putting you in position to truly serve and inspire your clients.
This Training is designed to help you address your own food and health concerns, while learning to be an effective and skillful practitioner.
We love to help our graduates succeed. The Institute provides advanced trainings and offerings that you’ll be the first to know about. We have private support groups for alumni where you can ask for support, receive feedback, and network with other professionals. We also have an optional online directory that graduates can join for a small yearly fee.
This is a great way to expose your work and your message to thousands of potential clients who are looking for support and guidance.
This is a valuable and unique opportunity to interact directly with me and get your questions answered throughout the Training. I love connecting with each of you and making sure you get the support you need. I’ve been seeing clients for over 30 years and I know the ins and outs of what might come up.
This is a chance for us to dive deep, get specific, and ensure that you’ll have the guidance you need as you work through the material. All classes are recorded for those who cannot attend live!
For those of you who want to build a business, we’re committed to giving you the tools to succeed! We provide you with effective marketing and website copy to help you communicate your work and your message. We’ll give you copy that’s clear, catchy, and helps tell the world what this unique approach is all about.
You’ll also receive essential intake questionnaires, client agreements and more to help you launch or elevate your practice.
In this optional part of the Training, we’ll match you with a fellow student so you can practice the skills you’re learning throughout the Training. Each module you’ll receive topics and discussion points to explore with your peer coach. All sessions are done over phone or Skype and at your convenience.
This is a great opportunity to practice your skills, learn how to work with virtual clients, and connect with the material in a very practical way!
This module is for anyone who needs a foundation in nutrition or who wants a great review of the fundamentals. In this optional, holistic, evidence based module, you’ll receive a solid understanding of nutritional science. Topics range from digestive physiology and anatomy to the basics of whole foods nutrition and macronutrient balance. Our core Training itself features plenty of content in Mind Body Nutrition, functional and clinical nutrition, as well as results-oriented nutrition recommendations. We include this bonus module at no additional cost.
Students are invited to attend an inspiring virtual event when the Training concludes. You’ll connect with me, the Institute team, and your fellow students. We’ll dive into new material, talk business strategy, work in small groups, and celebrate with others! This is a great opportunity to network, get ideas, and forge lifelong relationships.
Our virtual event is a popular part of the Training and a great way to launch into the next phase of your career!

We know that there are other health coaching programs, and we don’t claim to be right for everyone. We want you to be sure that this is the best Training for you, based on your professional goals and the kind of work that you want to do in the world. Here’s what sets us apart:
We’re the only school in the world that teaches an eating psychology that’s designed for everyone who eats. I’ve personally spent over 3 decades developing the fields of Mind Body Nutrition & Dynamic Eating Psychology, and our Training is the only place where you can get a truly solid education in these revolutionary approaches to working with food, body and health.
If you’re fascinated by nutrition and eating challenges, but you want to go beyond simply telling people what and how to eat - if you want to actually dive into why people have food issues in the first place, and really get to the heart of your clients’ challenges - then, quite simply, you need this information. When coaches focus only on dietary corrections without getting to the root causes of a client’s concerns, the same challenges will tend to present themselves again and again. At the Institute, we’re all about making real and lasting changes in people’s lives - and we’ve developed the tools and protocols that work when it comes to transformation and healing that’s truly sustainable.
So many health practitioners know the difficulties involved in actually getting clients to follow through with the recommendations they suggest. You can have a nutrition degree, you can even be a medical doctor with all the latest science and technology at your fingertips, but if you want your clients to actually DO what you suggest - meaning if you want to be truly effective as a practitioner - the time-tested, results-oriented coaching techniques that we teach will make all the difference.
I’m sure you know people who’ve tried every diet out there and still haven’t seen the results they were looking for. That might even describe you. What we offer is something very different: a framework for getting to the source of any eating challenge and addressing it from the inside out. Yes, in this Training you’ll get nutritional science, coaching strategies, and practical business skills. But you’ll get something that no one else is talking about, something that will give you a real edge as a practitioner: a profound understanding of an eating psychology for everyone.
If your goal is to learn how to design meal plans for specific conditions, this isn’t the training for you. These days, nutrition information is abundantly available for free on the Internet. As we see it, the job of a coach is to help clients reap the benefits of all that the information by learning how to actually apply it. Coaches are here to help clients get unstuck, and to help uncover the root cause of their unwanted eating challenges. That’s when the magic starts to happen.
This Training is the culmination of my 30+ years of study and clinical experience. I so want you to benefit from what I’ve learned. I want to help you understand the nuances of working with clients, and give you the coaching skills that work in real life. In short, this is the information and wisdom I wish I was given when I was starting out as a practitioner.
We know that you want a solid return on your investment. We aim to deliver just that, and more. We’re committed to going above and beyond to provide you with a unique Training that prepares you to have the kind of health practice, lifestyle and income you want.
Our Mind Body Eating Coach Certification Training gives you the tools and skills to help others in a deep, meaningful and lasting way. We’re proud of this one-of-a-kind professional offering, and we think you will be too.

Many other health coach programs are all about just bringing in as many students as they can. Here at the Institute, we’re committed to creating a quality experience. Our application process helps ensure that you’ll be part of a student body that’s inspired, caring, and truly looking to serve others in a meaningful way. We aim to deliver just that and more.

Founder of the Institute for the Psychology of Eating
