Why can’t you keep your weight off? — The 8 Essential Rules for Weight Maintenance

Recidivism among dieters has prompted major revisions in treatment methodology as researchers discover the significant contributions of genetics, psychology, and environmental factors to eating behavior. More than 85% of Americans have dieted during their lifetimes, yet the majority of diets offer little flexibility to accommodate the biopsychosocial components of the dieter’s life. Weight regain is […]

Starving, Stressed, and Stockpiling

We’re involved in a crisis. It’s epic. It’s huge. Just like we are. We’re starving. Yet we’re fat. Ironic. We’re suffering from a severe deficiency. As much as we eat, and we’re lacking nourishment. Our bodies are deprived and I argue it’s because we’ve lost our minds. Literally. When I hear “Kori, I’m hungry…all the […]

To the “Do you have anything on plateaus?” inquiry, I asked “Mental or physical?” I could hear the chuckle through […]

Where has Personal Responsibility Gone?

Okay, I’m angry. I was on the treadmill this morning reading the NPR Health headlines, and every page had an article related to nutrition. Food deserts and the impact of low availability of and access to nutritious foods in low income neighborhoods the continuing rise in obesity (big surprise) and its influence on soaring health […]

Illuminate to Eliminate

I tweeted today, “Can life be any more FULL?!?” The painful, the amazing, the brilliant, the hideous….all of it is valuable and necessary to become who we desire to be. We’ve got to be willing to go through it all too- not just bear it. We need to milk it, dig at it, peel away […]

A Gulp and some Spirit– You Ready?

I can’t count how many times I’ve heard, “But Kori, I know what to do” or “Kori, I really should know how to do this on my own” or “Kori, I have the information– I just can’t “do” it.” And to each of these comments, I usually nod, smile, and respond with a “Yep,” a […]

Think and you shall become…

Scientists used to believe that we were born as blank slates. As brand new babies we had nothing to guide us until we started creating meaning from our environments and forming neural connections from our surroundings and the people and models in our lives. We know far more about neuroscience now, and from conception, the […]

Up a creek without a paddle….

Too good to ignore, I wanted to share with you what a client of mine recently contacted me about regarding her lack of progress. The image she created for me with her “creek without a paddle” statements was vivid and gave me some useful tools from which to help draw her out and begin thinking […]
