FOOD AND INTIMACY
 
Eating is one of the most intimate acts that there is! It's so very personal, and each one of us is quite unique in how and what we eat. As it turns out, many of our eating challenges are connected to our ability - or inability - to find the kind of intimacy that we truly seek. When we aren't getting the intimacy we want in relationship, marriage, love, or partnership - it's easy and even natural to turn to food. The link between emotional eating and our search for intimacy is a fascinating one. Join in as Emily Rosen, Director of the Institute for the Psychology of Eating delivers some great insights on the food and intimacy connection.  If you find yourself faced with emotional eating, binge eating, or overeating, we think you'll have a whole new outlook and a way to better transform your relationship with food. #food   #intimacy   #connection   #health   #wellness   #nutrition   #pleasure   #mindbody   #eatingpsychology   #IPE   #IPEtv

THE NEW VITAMIN A

Are you deficient in the New Vitamin A?  It’s called Authenticity, and you may be requiring more of it in your life if you’ve been putting off living in a real, honest, and courageous way.  Living inauthentically is inherently stressful, and stress, as we know, creates a hormonal cascade that can  lead to weight gain and appetite dysregulation.  Tune in as Emily Rosen, Director of the Institute for the Psychology of Eating shares some intriguing connections in this short video from #IPEtv.
In the comments below, please let us know: Have you ever had the experience where being more real and authentic made you feel alive, vibrant, and perhaps even healthier? If so, what happened?

It's said that childhood is a time when we see the world through magical eyes. It's also been said that we invariably lose the magic, and rediscovering it in adulthood is, well, pretty magical. I see so much magic in my world. Nature. Water. A shooting star. A chance encounter. A sunflower that looks like it's talking to me. An unexpected smile from someone. And you…

How to Understand All of Nutritional Science

In the field of nutrition, it seems like the only constant is change. At any given time, numerous dramatically different ideas about the “perfect” diet are competing for our attention, and each one seems to be backed up by a host of doctors or scientists with lots of letters after their names. How can the average person possibly hope to navigate the turbulent waters of nutritional science?

How can we know who, if anyone, to trust? In this video, Marc David, Founder of the Institute for the Psychology of Eating, provides some very helpful “re-frames” on the chaotic but beautiful state of the cutting-edge field of nutrition, and offers a compass point that we can use to find our way through. 

If you have any "nutrtional confusion" - or if you've ever wondered what dietary approach is the best one to follow, then this is the video for you.

It takes a lot of courage these days to do good work in the world. It's not particularly easy to earn money in a way that truly serves others and supports the planet. I think it takes a little extra work to create for ourselves the kind of work that we can truly feel good about. I've always been committed to right livelihood and it's paid off for me, but I definitely had to walk through the fire. Be patient, be trusting, and believe in the goodness of the universe. From there, let the spiritual chips fall where they may...

I believe that if we choose, every day, we can change someone's life. Maybe in a small way, perhaps medium and occasionally extra large.
