Your Own Food Coach

Welcome to the Your Own Food Coach podcast, my name is Pamela Kelle. Please come on in and find a comfortable place to listen. We’ve created this podcast for us to each be safe and authentic as we have a conversation about nutrition and our health. Together, let’s explore the unique, interesting and sometimes painful relationships and emotions clients have expressed to me in my office in over 20 years of private practice. Our goal here is to explore these experiences while offering some guidance and perspective we can all benefit from because what many of my brave clients have shared may be similar to what you or a loved one has experienced in the world of food, nutrition and body image. You’ve come to the right place.

Welcome to Your Own Food Coach

My message and conversations I want to share here are based on the conversations, questions and sharing that occur in my office every day. Sometimes I look at and point to the door that opens into my office space and tell my clients that there are others who share their feelings about food and body. Many who have entered my office and quite possibly many of you listening. My hope is while walking your dog or driving to work our conversations might bring up questions in you too. And that you would know you are not alone.I have spent my career as a registered dietitian researching, getting additional certifications, licenses and background first as a diabetes educator, then onto mindful eating awareness, constructive living, and finally as a certified eating disorder dietitian. This podcast will address the areas where I have developed a keen interest and experience. I am always learning, and look forward to learning together here in this space. You’ve come to the right place. “I hope that together we can think about our relationship with food and our bodies.” listen on iTunes

Mindful Ways With Food

We have all received dieting messages over the years; it’s impossible not to hear them when they are major advertisings on all social media and television. Dieting has been a part of culture for many generations. But today we will try to back up to the beginning and remember the truth of what we know about eating and nourishment from its most basic foundation. “Often, starting at the beginning is necessary to reset or reboot the foundation of eating and to relearn the trust of the intuitive nature we were all born with regarding food and the experience of eating.” Listen on itunes

Ignoring hunger will not last long even if you have great will power. Will power is in the head but hunger is mechanical…it’s straight up biology! “If hunger is not honored the body will compensate with a powerful biological and psychological force.” Listen on Itunes

Navigating Nutrition Recommendations

In Episode 6 of the Your Own Food Coach podcast we will take a look at what compels people to diet and how to navigate the plethora of nutrition recommendations we are bombarded with continually. Most, if not all, recommendations are based in the altruistic drive for health and good practices for humanity… but underneath almost everything is commercialism and profit. However, many times we are left still not knowing how to trust or understand what our bodies really need. “Eliminating an entire food group is not a permanent solution.” Listen on iTunes
