Eating Disorders, Overeating & Stress Eating

Do you know it takes about 20 minutes for the brain to register satiety (fullness)?

Or that scientists believe that eating while distracted - like driving or typing - may slow or stop digestion?

Over-eating, emotional eating, stress eating, relentless food cravings, or binge-eating disorders are all linked to weight regain.

It's well known that weight loss programs don't work in the long term. Around 85% of people with obesity who lose weight, return or exceed their previous weight within a few years. Eating without awareness of our own internal cues and needs, impacts the gut's balance and results not only in gaining weight but also in digestive issues.

SELF AWARENESS, which is cultivated through Mindfulness-Based Eating & Living can help you to be successful in sustainable weight loss, because it changes your eating patterns and reduces STRESS!

- one of the mayor culprits for weight loss, hormonal dysfunction and gut's imbalance -

This method has proven to be effective in treating binge-eating and related disorders. The food meditations and tools will allow you to change the negative feelings and thoughts associated with food and replace them with awareness, self-control and positive emotions.

The skills obtained when we use mindful eating awareness will allow you to become more aware of internal physical hunger signals vs eating from emotional triggers.
When we work together you will learn to discern between physical feelings of hunger and other triggers. MB-EAT includes a variety of practices in mindful meditation including:

  • Hunger And Body Awareness,

  • Body Positivity,

  • Mindful Movement,

  • Attending To Emotions,

  • Calling Forth Positive Emotions,

  • Surfing The Urge With Loving-Kindess,

  • Inner Wisdom,

  • Wisdom Of The Gut,

"I've been working with Natalia since January and I have lost 28 lb and 4 inches off my waistline. She knows what she's doing and she is a master of her craft. Thank you doctor!"

Solomon Able
 

“I was having trouble with emotional eating and knowing my hunger level.  She gave me a lot of information, handouts and articles to help me.  She walked me through how to eat with purpose and truly enjoy what I eat.  I started having gut issues.  Once again, Natalia filled me with a lot of information on the importance of eating clean, healthy food.  She posts recipes regularly to help with meal planning. Natalia is very dedicated to helping people with their gut health and other eating issues.  You can tell that she genuinely wants to help you.  You want to have her on YOUR team.  She will root for you and cheer you on.  You're not alone. Natalia is great!”

Chris Palmer, Lakewood Ranch, Florida

“I was consistently on a diet and not seeing change. I also suffered from body image issues and sometimes lacked the ability to see my body the way I needed to see it. I needed someone with the expertise of Natalia to come in and help guide me toward better food decisions that would aid me in achieving the results I was looking for.  Natalia is so knowledgeable! She truly listens to you and considers the best approach to take based on where you are currently at. She is positive and supportive, and I call her my “food therapist”. Since working with Natalia, I have gone down a cup size in bras and have been able to wear things I wasn’t able to fit into prior. Finally seeing a dietitian has changed my life for the better. I needed to bring in that third party perspective and since doing so, it’s helped me in so many aspects of my life” Kolby Gayson, Palmetto Florida

“When I started working with Natalia, I was 220lbs with very little energy, brain fog, zero motivation and just burnt out of trying so many unsuccessful diets and weight loss programs. I was also using food for comfort which left me feeling defeated. I needed help and accountability to find new ways to handle the stress of life as well as help to know what to eat to have lasting weight loss. Natalia helped to customize a meal plan just for me and my health goals. The meal plan was just the start- where she is set apart from any other dietician is that she helped me to identify where my hunger was coming from and how to address those hungers without using food. She helped me to forgive myself for creating these coping mechanisms and guided me through healing solutions that I will carry with me for the rest of my life. She takes mindful eating to the next level. She was beyond knowledgeable and is so gifted. I would recommend her to everyone I know! She is such a blessing and has impacted my life in such a life-giving way- I’ll never be able to express how much better my life is now having met her. After working with Natalia for 8 weeks I lost over 15lbs, 3 inches around my waist and 2 inches around my hips. She is a game changer for anyone needing to lose weight and get a healthier relationship with food.”

Meredith Fyffe, Florida
