Mind Body Nutrition Health Coaching

My non-diet nutrition and whole health approach focuses on teaching you “gentle nutrition” —no perfection necessary. Every dimension of your health affects your eating habits, so we get to the root of your challenges — by exploring your “deep health”: your physical, mental, emotional, relational, environmental, and existential health — not just giving you what you want, but what you need to make your self-care sustainable.

Coaching Philosophy

Diet culture focuses on your physical appearance, duping you into believing that your health is just a number on the scale. This is a distorted and simplistic idea of your health ignoring its complexities. An evolved definition of health honors body diversity and acknowledges that your body will change as you move through the stages of life.

Deep health coaching ditches the diet culture BS and considers you as a whole person within the context of your real and complex life. We collaborate to build a structured plan where you practice small “doable” nutrition and health habits for 3-12 months or more (as you can’t rush change) — allowing your body to be where its healthiest. The deep health approach transforms not just your relationship with food and your body, but your whole wellbeing.

INTUITIVE EATING

BODY IMAGE

Having a challenging relationship to your body often affects your eating behaviors. Body dissatisfaction is driven by our culture’s false definition of health as “thinness.” You’ll learn to separate your self-worth from your body size or shape, and practice nutrition and self-care behaviors that allow your body to be its healthiest. Learn 5 steps to a healthy body image here.

EATING PSYCHOLOGY

You have a unique food and body story driven by your beliefs, mindset, emotions, and past. Dynamic Eating Psychology affirms the importance of this epic story. You can transform your eating concerns through a deeper understanding of what they’re here to teach you by honoring all of who you are as an eater – body, mind, heart and soul.

BEHAVIOR CHANGE PSYCHOLOGY

You have a desired nutrition or wellness goal, but you can’t seem to reach it or sustain it. Change is often messy and hard, yet is possible! Change is a skill you can develop. You’ll accelerate the change you desire by learning the growth mindset, through purposeful practice and by acting first, before change happens.

DEEP HEALTH

Are you truly transforming your whole health – or just focusing on your physical health (nutrition, movement, health markers, sleep)? These are key components of your health, but we’ll also collaborate to support your “deep health” which includes your emotional, mental, existential, relational, and environmental health. Why is this important?

Deep Health: Each area of your health is deeply entwined and influences your eating and self-care behaviors.

Deep health is an expression of the interconnectedness of wellbeing.

Example: You work long hours at a stressful job.

You sit at a desk all day (environmental) which causes back pain (physical). You come home anxious (emotional) and answer emails all night, which distracts you from time with your partner and kids (relational). And your family is your top priority (existential). Then you sleep poorly, wake up exhausted, cancel your workout, and reach for sugar and/or a coffee-only breakfast (all physical). You’re super hard on yourself because you’re not at your “ideal weight”- which is a myth by the way (mental). Is there a way out?

Yes. The challenges are connected… but so are the solutions.

The good news is that improving one dimension of your health can change the others. That’s why health-conscious people like you need coaching that’s individualized, thoughtful, and sustainable (not another quick-fix food plan).     Tanya
