Karen Louise Intuitive Eating Coach Manifesto

I Believe…

I believe that the pursuit of weight loss is a behavior that comes from the shame we feel that our bodies don’t fit within what is considered ideal.

I believe that our focus on perfect health is causing us to lose connection with our body’s internal wisdom.

I believe there no good or bad foods. All foods should be emotionally equal and when we label foods in good versus bad terms, we internalize that label which leads us to either praising or shaming our eating habits.

I believe that weight stigma is trauma for those living in larger bodies.

I believe that all bodies deserve safe spaces and respectful healthcare.

I believe that we cannot talk about health and weight unless we also talk about patriarchy, feminism, race, class, privilege and access to services.

I believe that we need to change how we talk about bodies with each other. We need to learn how to share our vulnerability around our body image and that through that connection, we can begin to heal.

I believe that each body has it’s own story and that my job is to do more listening and learning than teaching or telling.

I believe that no positive behavior change starts with someone saying, “You should….” you are the expert on you and I will help you to trust that inner wisdom.

I believe that self-compassion, curiosity and empathy are needed for healing our relationship with food and our bodies.

I believe that healing and full recovery is possible for anyone willing to begin on this path of self-discovery.

Hello! Let me introduce myself...

I'm Karen Louise, MA, RDN (she/her)

I'm a California based weight-inclusive, anti-diet dietitian and Certified Intuitive Eating Coach with over 16 years of experience under my belt! I'm passionate about freeing folks from the oppressive force of diet culture so they can reclaim their birthright to live and eat with pleasure, peace and freedom.Over the past 16 + years, I've helped hundreds of folks break free from the dieting cycle and create a healthy and peaceful relationship with food and their bodies. My philosophy is rooted in anti-diet and Health at Every Size frameworks, as well as Intuitive and Mindful Eating. I believe that everyone is the authority of their own bodies; I just help you to "get out of your head and back into your body."

Thank you for reading Karen Louise Intuitive Eating Coach Manifesto

I’ve learned a lot in the past 15 years specializing in eating disorders! I’ve worked at every level of care- from in-patient hospital, to PHP to IOP programs and have had a thriving private practice for over 10 years. While working in programs, I had the opportunity to supervise and train new dietitians.

I’ve personally trained with the best and brightest in our field, including Anita Johnston, author of Eating in the Light of the Moon, Carolyn Costin author of numerous books on eating disorders and Evelyn Tribole author of Intuitive Eating. I’ve also trained with Barbara Birsinger and use her Behavior Decoding Methods to uncover the symbolic meaning and purpose of food and body image issues.
