Some frequently asked questions about what we do


Understandably, you may have some questions about what we do as Eating Psychology Coaches.

Read below to get answers to some of the most commonly asked questions. If after reading through this page you still have unanswered questions, please email them to us at LiberateYourEating@gmail.com


1. What is Eating Psychology?

Eating Psychology is a fairly young, and very important, field originated by Marc David, Founder of the Institute for the Psychology of Eating. This approach is suitable for anyone who eats. That means you!

Each of us has a unique, fascinating, and constantly evolving relationship with Self and with food. In Eating Psychology, this relationship is affirmed in a positive, empowering, and transformational way.

Your Eating Psychology Coach approaches your challenges with eating, weight, and health not as an indication that you’re broken, but as a beautiful opportunity for you to grow and evolve.

Consider your relationship with food as your personal compass, pointing you towards important lessons to learn if you choose to listen. It is intimately connected to other primary Life dimensions, such as relationships, family, work, sexuality, and your search for meaning and fulfillment.

This powerful breakthrough approach recognizes your challenges with eating, weight, and health, and sets you on your transformative Journey to healing.


2. What is Mind Body Nutrition?

Mind Body Nutrition is another young, and very exciting, field originated by Marc David. It is exciting and very timely, as we live in a society that glorifies physical perfection, hard core exercise, and fad dieting.

Mind Body Nutrition advances the practice of clinical nutrition by exploring how thoughts, feelings, and beliefs impact not just our overall health, but how our body responds to food and nutrients.

As a field of practice, it is a progressive approach that goes far beyond classical nutrition. Mind Body Nutrition focuses on the fascinating connections between brain, body, and behavior.

Simply put, what we eat is only one part of good nutrition. The other part is who we are as eaters.

As your Mind Body Nutrition Coaches, we are trained to identify and understand how stress physiology, the relaxation response, breathing, awareness, pleasure, meal timing, and much more profoundly influence digestion and calorie burning.

Mind Body Nutrition is a practical and results-oriented strategy for the most commonly seen eating challenges and health problems of our times.


3. What qualifies you to Coach others around their relationships with food and body?

Your Food Heals Coaches, Rita and Mackenzie, have both been through the intensive training and coaching certification by the Institute for the Psychology of Eating, the world’s leading school in Nutritional Psychology.

Together, they have a combined 500+ hours of training from the founding father of Eating Psychology and Mind Body Nutrition, Marc David.

Additionally, we both come from diverse backgrounds and careers, which have placed us in the forefront of working with individuals who suffer from body image dysmorphia, severe dieting and calorie restriction, mental illness, and eating challenges.


4. How do I choose who I’d like hire as my Coach?

5. What would our work together look like if I hired you as my Coach?

Although we have different coaching styles, our approach is the same.

When you enroll in a coaching relationship with either Rita or Mackenzie, you will first have a discovery call to see if you are a good fit. It’s important for everyone to feel a sense of safety and comfort before moving forward, for the work to come to fruition.

You’ll meet for an exhaustive intake session where you’ll answer several questions. You will  also have the opportunity to ask your questions as well, so write them down as they come up.

You and your Coach will decide how often you’ll meet based on the type of work you’re doing. This may or may not change from month to month. It is contingent upon the homework that your Coach assigns you after each session.

The work is complete when either you, your Coach, or both of you feel that you’ve reached your highest goals. This can take anywhere from 4-8 months, or longer.

6. What types of clients do you serve?

Eating Psychology Coaching is for anyone who eats!

Anyone who wants to work on their relationship with food and/or body.

People who struggle with eating challenges such as over eating, binge eating, emotional eating, or eating in secret.

Those who struggle with health, immunity, fatigue, digestion, body image, and weight.

Anyone who is sick of trying diet after diet and feeling like a failure.


7. How long does this type of work generally take?

You and your Coach will decide how often you’ll meet based on the type of work you’re doing.

The work is complete when either you, your Coach, or both of you feel that you’ve reached your highest goals. This can take anywhere from 4-8 months, or longer.
