Just wanted to share some thoughts on how diet mentality and magical eating can sneak up on us when we are stressed. Hope you enjoy this personal story and the special appearance by Darwin the cat.
Just got back a few days ago from a wonderful workshop in Boston with Marci Evans, MS, CEDRD, cPT and Fiona Sutherland APD, RYT and had some thoughts about our relationship with our bodies. Just thinking out loud.
I love the New York Times. I was raised on it. First to increase my SAT scores and then because it’s where I found my people. But like all individuals and groups, it has its blind spots. The coverage of health as it relates to weight, eating, and dieting – and particularly Intuitive Eating – […]
In breaking with tradition, I’m offering you an end-of-year cleanse so that you can confidently enter the New Year with your head held high and a spring in your step. This cleanse is for…your Kindle.

It’s no secret: I love RuPaul’s Drag Race and think everyone should be watching it.
