Is worrying about your eating leaving you overwhelmed?

Eating well doesn’t have to mean overthinking it.

Your journey to rebuilding a peaceful relationship with food starts here.

In a world which obsesses over nutrition and body image, eating “right” can feel defeating. It’s easy to fall prey to body dissatisfaction and the newest food trend promising amazing results.

But then, something goes wrong. You find yourself preoccupied with food rules and chasing perfection.

Restrictive eating patterns quickly turn to overeating and binging, which makes you feel like you need to add more rules, or different rules, to make up for it.

Then, the cycle starts over. The guilt and shame feel overwhelming and you start to believe you are powerless.

Have you ever thought, “Maybe I just can’t trust myself with food?”

It’s easy for your fears to start to eat away at you.

But it doesn’t have to be this way.

Nourishing confidence means reconnecting with that part of you that knows when, where, and how to eat for not just maximum health, but maximum empowerment.

Gain a New Perspective

Hi, I am Emily Fonnesbeck, RD.

Solving your eating problems by adding more rules doesn’t work. By taking an individualized approach based on your personal goals, together we can:

Get to the root of why you have certain beliefs, behaviors and feelings around food

Improve your relationship with food and find eating habits specific to your needs without deprivation or restriction

Build your confidence with food by learning to focus on your overall health and wellbeing

Improve your body image through body respect

The Hard Truth about Diets. They Don’t Work.

Diets and food rules ignore your body’s natural ability to know what it needs, creating a disconnection between you and your body.

Your eating habits are influenced by more than just what you know about food. They can be influenced by beliefs, past dieting, family culture, food preferences, people you associate with, the media you consume and your body’s unique physiology.

Using Intuitive Eating principles, you’ll discover a weight-neutral, non-diet approach to nutrition where I believe all foods can fit. As a nutrition therapist and Registered Dietitian, I can help you build confidence, knowledge, and trust in your ability to make food decisions without a strict set of rules.

This methodology can be practiced by anyone and also be integrated into more specific eating practices that honor food allergies or eating preferences.

“Emily is the is the kindest, most caring person and is truly happy to help people live their life to its fullest. Her knowledge of food is mind-boggling.

But it’s worth it, and Emily guides you through every phase!” — D.B.

Weight Stigma

My husband is a rockstar at sniffing out the best places to eat when we travel. He’s also a pro at navigating the Disneyland scene - we’ve never waited longer than 10 minutes in a line. But that’s a story for a different day. This story is about this past week and our...

Mindful Eating: Breaking Free From Habitual Food Patterns

A while back I discussed how mindfulness can reduce needless physical and emotional suffering.  I outlined something I call “food meditation”, which is designed to rewire how our brains think about - and thus how we behave around - food.  I want to build on that idea...
