Mindful Eating During Times of Stress and Anxiety: Interview with Jennifer Carr

Jennifer Carr is a London born, Barcelona based Behavioural Eating Coach and Plant Based Retreat Cook. Training at The Institute of the Psychology of Eating in Boulder, Colorado in 2017, today Jennifer coaches from her home in Barcelona in person and online, helping people to address an array of body image and eating challenges. Through a blend of mindfulness based psychology, mirror work, energy medicine and firsthand experience, Jennifer’s ultimate goal is to support people in understanding their belief systems and patterns around eating and self image, to enable the coaching journey to be one of awareness, discovery and ultimately, re-learning how to nourish the mind-body for pleasure and health. From Mind + Plate Online: "My journey with dieting began at 18, triggered by a turbulent set of personal circumstances and a deep belief that I was not enough. Dabbling with zero fat foods and endless bowls of steamed vegetables quickly led to weight loss and attention, which translated a distorted truth in my mind: “I’m worthy”. The path back had its fair share of potholes. And as anyone who’s overcome an eating disorder will know, it’s often not linear. I now regard my own ‘road back’ as one of the most valuable experiences, because it forced me to let go of who I thought I was and become who I am. In so doing, I found my ‘true north’ as a certified transformational eating coach and more recently, reiki practitioner. I believe our world is in a deep crisis of perfectionism that’s fuelled by “not-enoughness”. Our culture teaches us that if we can just look a certain way, or diet a certain way, that happiness is within our grasp. It’s time to unlearn this idea. It’s time to embrace food with a peaceful, balanced attitude that frees us up to nourishment and pleasurable eating without extremes. Working with me, you will rewrite your food script – and discover a liberating new approach to your body and your life." jen@mindandplate.com Instagram and Facebook @mindandplate www.mindandplate.com --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app
