What exactly is eating psychology and why should I care I hear you ask? Well matey, mind body nutrition is a field that advances the practice of clinical nutrition by exploring the psychophysiology of how thoughts, feelings and beliefs impact nutritional metabolism and health.
It goes far beyond classical nutrition by focusing on the connection between brain, body, and behaviour. Simply put, what we eat is only half of the story of good nutrition. The other half is who we are as eaters.
Mind body nutrition looks at how genetics, history of family health, stress physiology, the relaxation response, lifestyle, breathing, awareness, pleasure, meal timing and even down to how our relationships profoundly influence digestion and calorie burning capabilities. It's then piecing together all the information that makes up you as an eater into practical and results oriented strategies to help you overcome issues such as binge eating, yoyo dieting, poor body image, low confidence and self esteem and to learn how to listen to your body's natural wisdom.
Combine that with personalised classical nutritional analysis and a fitness regime specifically designed for you and that's a whole lot of awesomeness you're about to unleash on the world!
DANG!! This my friends is self evolution.
