Hi. I’m Kris Pina. I created Eatuitive and this blog to share what I’ve learned about dieting, weight loss, body image, eating disorders and non-diet approaches to weight management and health. I am a Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor, an EDIT™ Certified Eating Disorder Recovery Therapist, a Body Type Practical Nutritionist, and a Precision Nutrition Certified Nutrition Coach. Additionally, I am a member of the Central Texas Eating Disorders Specialists (CTEDS), the International Association of Eating Disorder Professionals (IAEDP) and a supporter of the Health at Every Size (HAES) movement.
But please, if you are going to trust me (and I hope you do!), don’t do so solely based on my credentials. Trust me because I spent over 30 years dieting and struggling myself with disordered eating before learning that the way to get to (and stay at) a healthy weight and to live a life free of body obsession, restriction, and unhealthy weight fluctuations is not by cutting calories, carbs or fats (or even sugar, grains or gluten) out of your diet. Believe it or not, managing your weight is not about trying to control or cut out anything! In fact, it’s mostly about letting go of control and letting your body do what it’s beautifully designed to do if left to its own devices…to keep you at a perfectly healthy weight!
Pretty exciting right? And even if you are a little skeptical (I was too), are you fed up enough …. hopeful enough … BRAVE enough!!!?? to give a non-diet lifestyle a try? I hope so because I am truly excited to welcome you, and I look forward to helping you find freedom from destructive dieting, disordered eating, food-related health issues, body shame, and weight obsession.
So why wait? You can start by browsing the the blog articles, checking out the resources on the site, and posting comments and questions. I’ll do my best to get back with you asap. If you’d like to work with me one-on-one, you can find out more about eating disorder recovery coaching and/or intuitive eating counseling here.
