42: Eating Psychology, True Nourishment & Transforming Our Relationship with Food with Melissa Hemphill
My guest today is Melissa Hemphill, a wife and mama of 3 (with another on the way!), a US Air Force officer, the BirthFit Coach Seminar Director, and a Mind-Body Eating Coach through the Institute of the Psychology of Eating. She has an insatiable curiosity about the world and is committed to being a life-long learner. Her mission is to support women in motherhood as well as through the birth of their children.
Listen in today to hear Melissa:
- share her unique experience of first becoming a mother (a little spoiler, she and her husband at separate times both had to give up their parental rights and then adopt their biological son!)
- break down the psychology of eating, our behaviors around food and who we are as eaters
- explain how we can change our digestion and metabolism through our relationship with food and how stress affects the nutritional value of what we eat
- and her tips for pregnant and postpartum women (that are actually applicable to everyone) when it comes to connecting to their bodies in order to tune in to nutritional needs
