Emotional Eater? You’re ahead of the game!

In the world of weight loss, we’re facing a crisis.

Rarely can individuals learn the skills and adopt the mindset and behavioral patterns necessary to manage their losses...long-term.

Obesity continues to rise, and more and more people are searching for the magic bullet. Emotional eating is a significant contributor.

I know you're thinking, “Okay, that’s great, Kori. But what do I DO?!”

And to that I’ll ask, “Feeling something?” Stop right now and assess your body—tense anywhere?

What’s your breathing like—shallow or restricted? Good, now you’re really paying attention.

Do you feel that energy? That’s emotion. Think of your emotion now as ENERGY IN MOTION, and imagine capturing it for the purpose of becoming the best you. Becoming is action-oriented.

We can’t just think and expect change to occur.

Here's how to harness that emotion and use it to move closer to your goals of permanent weight loss: What about the individuals in particular who struggle with emotional eating ?

Basic Rotator Cuff Exercises

[02/05/15]   Heres a quick tip for people who are exercising hard, but not seeing the results they are looking for. We'll use glutes as an example here (hint: you may not be engaging your muscles correctly):

[02/04/15]   Negative emotion often influences our engagement or dis-engagement from behaviors congruent with our goals — but you can use your emotion in a constructive way instead of running from it.

In other words, "Name it to tame it":

[02/03/15]   Came across this article recently:

We shouldn't need a news story to confirm that fad dieting doesn't work. But when Kim Kardashian is touted as being a fan of the Atkin's Diet, she must know something we don't, right?!

I would shy away from any program followed by the word "diet". Unless you're looking for a short-term, quick fix, lose some weight but then gain it all back and then some sort of program, stay away from the "fill in the blank" diet.

Instead of dispelling diet myths, what about focusing on what WORKS: Flexibility, education, support — and The Diet Doc (

[02/02/15]   In thinking about how we might utilize mindfulness and its benefits to significantly improve the odds of losing weight successfully and managing the myriad temptations and complications that can come along with any significant goal pursuit, I turn to the nine “simple ways” a recent article published in Time magazine included.

(The bold is from the article. I’ve modified the descriptions to illustrate their importance to weight loss.)

The Secrets To Success

The individuals who “make it” have worked for it.

Striving, by definition, is action oriented! It’s powerful and carries an inertia about it that brings to mind clients who have dieted for over a year and exemplify what striving truly is:

1. To exert much effort or energy; endeavor.
2. To struggle or fight forcefully; contend.

They know what they want and they have taken the steps necessary to get there. Certainly not always easy, they have contended with obstacles that threatened their ability and motivation to continue.

Here are 9 traits that almost all successful people demonstrate: Here I go again. Doing a running pole vault onto my “you’ve gotta fail to prevail” soapbox. How can I not go there when research resoundingly and...

Was it something I ate? Understanding (and preventing) foodborne illness

Foodborne illness (food poisoning) is common; each year approximately 1 in 6 Americans (48 million people) get sick, 128,000 are hospitalized, and 3,000 die. Close to one in five episodes of diarrhea is likely due to eating contaminated food.

This means that the average person in the United States experiences a foodborne illness once every three to four years.

Dr. Robin Berner explains how to understand these illnesse and prevent yourself from getting sick: Raw Sushi scraped ground tuna, ground beef, peanut butter, ricotta salata cheese, raw clover sprouts, cantaloupe, mangoes, and dry dog food: these...

[01/26/15]   Do you meditate?

If you do, you may recognize the phrase, "Be here now."

They're the famous three words of every meditation master.

And the words I used to get annoyed hearing when I would attend a yoga class.

Contrary to what you may expect—being that I tout the benefits of mindfulness, teach the skills of mindfulness, and work to embody mindfulness in my daily life—there was a time when the thought of mindfulness ruffled my feathers.

But when used correctly, mindfulness can be a powerful tool to help you lose weight.

Recently, Time Magazine outlined 9 "simple" ways to become more mindful — and I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to show you exactly how you can use the same approach to make your diet a little easier.

Dr. Layne Norton gives us an in-depth discussion on transitioning to maintenance mode with your diet.

Specifically, look for:

1.) The surprising effects of extended dieting on your metabolism (why you may actually gain fat if you crash diet).

2.) The psychology of ending a diet, and what comes next.

3.) How to implement the “reverse diet” and start eating more again after being in a caloric deficit for a long time
