We're so excited to announce our new Intuitive Eating Group Program

Do You Want to Improve Your Relationship with Food?

Looking for Guidance on How to Honor Your Nutritional Needs?

Struggling with Recovery From an Eating Disorder?

Marci RD Nutrition has a 5-week Intuitive Eating Group Program that will Transform You and Your Life!  We will help you navigate the complex journey of learning to listen to your body’s needs while in a supportive group environment! 

This program, led by Eating Disorder and Intuitive Eating expert, Sarah Patten, will help you:

  • Discover how to listen and reconnect with your body's hunger and fullness cues
  • Learn to trust yourself to make decisions around what or how much to eat
  • Take back your power around food
  • Reconnect to your body's innate wisdom to determine the right amount of food for you
  • Develop self-trust around eating challenging or “forbidden” foods
  • Practice being more mindful at meal times in a safe and supportive environment
Why Join our Group Program? 
  • Exposure to challenging meals in a supportive environment fosters greater self-trust while decreasing fear and anxiety over time.
  • Avoidance of particular foods or eating in a social setting is a big risk factor for relapse and can hold one back from making peace with food once and for all.
We will help you become more confident in your ability to feed yourself in an adequate, varied, and enjoyable way.

Part V: Bringing it Home

Saturday, April 11, 2009
We have finally made it to our last and final blog posting for this series on the basics of grocery shopping.

So if you learn anything from me, I want it to be this: your delicious and fresh food should be as easy and accessible as the processed/packaged items in your pantry. Just follow ...

Boston Marathon: A spirit of motivation

Monday, April 20, 2009
As I type, the Boston Marathon is well underway.  Since 1897, thousands of athletes have trained rigorously in order to compete in the world's oldest annual marathon race.  And it is a site to behold!  Last year, I cheered on runners at mile 22.  With a few miles to go, some competitors were running, some were walking, and some were even limping.  As I stood there I thought "while this is truly amazing, long distance running is not for me!"  And I would imagine that many of you feel the s...

Nutritional Gatekeepers

Sunday, May 31, 2009
In an attempt to save money, more and more people are cooking at home. And while this may be cheaper, are you certain that your food is more nutritious? Brian Wansink, author of “Mindless Eating” suggests that the nutrition gatekeeper of your house (the person who buys and prepares most of the food) influences more than 70% of the foods you eat. Wanksink queried 770 family cooks and was able to classify them into 5 distinct types. Take the quiz and determine what type of nutrition gatekeeper ...
