Stepping Away from Emotional Eating – An Interview with Sarah Campbell

Not popular in the sense that people like it, but popular in the sense that it’s something many people feel like they’re struggling with, and they’re all searching for answers on how to stop doing it. Today, I have a special treat for you. This is an interview […]

Is Your Food Relationship Like A Bad Marriage?

I talk a lot about developing a healthy relationship with food, and it made me think recently about just how many parallels it has with actual romantic relationships… Bad relationships and unhappy marriages can be fraught with tension, battles-of-wills, anger, sadness, and constant frustration.

5 Reasons to Stop Saying “I’ll Be Happy When…”

Cultivate happiness in the present moment. Be present, enjoy the little thing, and practice gratitude.

“When do we ever just get to be happy with our bodies and not spend months/years on end in the diet cycle that really gets you nowhere?” This question came to me in an email from a client recently. And I know she’s not the only one to have felt this way. Far from it actually. […]

What WE can learn in this Week Of The Young Child

This week is “The Week Of The Young Child,” which is something I hadn’t heard about until this year, but I like it! It is sponsored by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) and was started back in 1971, as a way to recognize kids’ early years (age 0-8) lay the […]

Sugar Addiction is Not Real

Everywhere you look, someone seems to be talking about “sugar addiction.” They’re either talking about doing a sugar detox to help get over their “addiction”, or they’re talking about how they don’t keep sweets in the house because they’re “addicted” and can’t control themselves around it. Many people also completely forbid their children from having sugar […]
