Mood and Food

Have you ever noticed how the things that you eat impact not just your energy levels, but also how you feel? Do you find yourself craving certain foods like carbs and sugar? Do you often “stress eat” or find yourself sluggish and fatigued by the time afternoon rolls around?

 

You might need to spend a little more time getting to know your “second brain” that resides in your stomach, the foods that nourish it, and how this relationship impacts your overall mental health. Nutritional Psychology can help you better understand your eating habits, what triggers them, and how they might be impacting your mood and thinking.

 

While I am not a dietician and cannot provide specific meal plans, my training in nutritional psychology will help us take a closer look at your food-related habits through food journaling, identifying life stressors that trigger food-related behaviors, and your overall relationship to food. This is not a diet plan to shed body weight (though that can be an effect). This is a plan that will help you feel more in alignment with who you want to be mentally and emotionally. Contact me today to learn more.

 

One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well

Please note, while I often do address issues pertaining to weight loss and body image, if you are someone who struggles with eating disorders such as anorexia or bulimia, this treatment is not recommended.
