We’re in the midst of an epidemic - and it’s not what you think.

While most people are familiar by now with the idea of an “obesity epidemic” that’s impacting the world, the reality is that our suffering around food, body and health goes far beyond concerns with weight and size. Millions of people all around us are locked in a daily battle with their body; struggling to overcome challenges from digestive issues to mood problems to body image concerns; and longing for a relationship with food that actually feels good.

Did you know... 

  • An estimated 108 million Americans are on a diet
  • Nearly 70% of American adults are classified as either overweight or obese
  • An unbelieveable 98% of those who diet gain back the weight they lose within a year
  • Within about a decade, 67% of the US population will have some form of diabetes
  • Approximately 75% of all diseases could be prevented with better nutrition
  • 9 out of 10 women in the US are unhappy with their appearance
  • 81% of 10 year old girls experience a fear of being fat
  • Adolescent girls are more afraid of gaining weight than getting cancer, losing their parents, or nuclear war
  • 2 out of 5 women would give up 3-5 years of their life in exchange for weight loss 
  • Nearly 50% of girls aged 3-6 are already concerned about their weight
  • 97% of women confess they have at least one “I hate my body moment” each day
  • 74% of Americans report that they live with ongoing digestive discomfort
  • In any given week, at least half of all adults complain of low energy or fatigue 

And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

BUT THE GOOD NEWS IS, in our 3+ decades of research and pioneering work in the coaching field, we’ve developed results-driven strategies that ACTUALLY DO HELP people find lasting freedom from these and many other food, body, and health challenges.  

That’s why we’ve dedicated ourselves to training practitioners who can use Dynamic Eating Psychology and Mind Body Nutrition to help others finally break free, and start living the lives they’re meant to live.

Beautiful Boulder

When we founded the Institute for the Psychology of Eating just over 10 years ago, we held some of our very first in-person trainings and workshops at the Integral Center. This well-loved Boulder, Colorado institution has been a home for innovative and transformative programming of all kinds. Now, after many years, thousands of classes, millions of cups of tea, and countless successful experiments in consciousness, the Integral Center will soon be closing its doors. So it’s both exciting and a little bittersweet for us to return to this beautiful venue for one more event. We hope you’ll join us as we share some great memories while also charting a course for the future of nutritional healing!

The Integral Center is located right in the heart of Boulder, just a short walk (or convenient bus ride) away from all that makes this town special. From the historical charm of Pearl Street’s pedestrian mall, to the natural beauty of Chautauqua Park, to the vibrant local arts scene and the dozens of specialty eateries, Boulder offers something for everyone to enjoy. And of course, people from all over the world flock to the nearby Rocky Mountains for every imaginable winter activity. So when you plan your trip, be sure to give yourself some extra time to explore and play! 

Hear from some of our graduates about the Mind Body Eating Coach Certification Training!

It is hard for me to put into words just how much this work has meant to me. By far, the training I have received from IPE has been the best thing I have done for myself both professionally and personally. It has completely changed the way I coach and connect with my clients, not to mention how I show up in my own life. I knew I wanted to take my clients to a whole new level with their relationship to food and body, but felt really limited in how to make that happen. I struggled with how to take them out of the diet mentality and into feeling more trust and compassion with themselves. That was until I discovered Marc David. I knew I had found my teacher, my mentor, and HAD to study with him, but I could have never imagined just how rich this training would have been. What Marc and IPE have created is unlike anything out there. It is a soul-level kind of training that asks you to look deeply and honestly at yourself, life, and the cultural connections we have about the body, food, and health. Covering everything from fatigue to weight-loss to how to show up fully for your clients, they have left no stone unturned. I can say from the bottom of my heart that I am a better coach, person, daughter, and partner because of this work. I feel so excited to share these teachings through my work because I know first-hand how powerful they are. It's a one-of-a-kind training that I feel so lucky to have experienced. 

Anita Avalos, Holistic Health, Eating Psychology + Body-Food Relationship Coach  


It was not an easy decision at first to choose between a traditional graduate school experience and the Institute for the Psychology of Eating. I knew that I wanted to help people work through problematic issues surrounding food and body image. I also was hungry to explore more of my personal struggles in this arena. For over a decade, I struggled with a compulsive relationship with food. My logical mind said to choose graduate school, but my heart drew me to IPE. The first teaching brought me to tears of relief and ignited passion, because I quickly realized this was the perfect blend of what I needed and what I wanted to give away to others. The traditional "addictions" model had value, but it really never spoke to my struggles with food. I knew something was missing. Finally, It found me! Marc's soulful approach is like nothing I've ever experienced in a training or in life. My relationship with food and my body has been transforming in the past several months in a way that daily keeps me in a space of gratitude and wonder. My husband continues to be impressed with how much I have evolved as a woman since the onset of the program. He watched me over the years exhaust every resource while finding little change. The Eating Psychology Coach Certification Training has led me to turn the corner and see my struggles in a whole new way! I am just starting to coach women and stand amazed at how well equipped I feel to work with them. I believe in this work because it is changing my life! The flexibility of this program works into my busy life with two kids and a massage therapy practice. The staff is so professional, yet you feel like you are sitting at a table sipping hot tea with them when you correspond or listen to the teachings. I am so thankful for Marc David's work and I am honored to share it with a world that desperately needs this approach to liberation! 

Julia Curry, Mind Body Eating Coach  


I cannot begin to express my gratitude for Marc David and his teachings. Throughout IPE's Professional Training and after reading, The Slow Down Diet, I experienced a personal transformation that was so profound and affected me in many facets of my everyday life. After years and years of reading all the books and looking for answers from the “experts”, I finally learned to listen to the true expert, my inner nutritionist. I am liberated from the constant search for the “right” answers and come from a place of clarity and connection to my own body that was once missing for me. I am now able to use my energy and focus in a more productive manner. On a professional level, Marc’s words of wisdom and language have empowered me to create a platform for my workshops and one-on-one coaching. I never give a talk or work with a client without delving into the missing piece of the puzzle that became evident during the IPE program: It is not just what we eat, it really is about how we eat. My clients are fascinated and achieve long-term results when they slow down, take pleasure in the eating experience, and become fully engaged in the nourishment process. They usually come to the realization that feeling nourished is not just about the food. I have the skill set and am able to guide and encourage this mind-body connection since studying at IPE. I love what I do not only because it is my passion, but also because I can work with people in a meaningful and transformative way. As I continue to grow personally and professionally, I will hear Marc’s voice and always have him to thank as one of my greatest and most influential teachers.  

Elise Museles, Eating Psychology + Nutrition Expert - Founder of Kale & Chocolate


If you are looking to grow and evolve, both personally and professionally, look no further. The Eating Psychology Coach Certification Training is full of refreshing insights, cutting-edge nutritional wisdom and practical and powerful tools. This Training goes far beyond foundational nutrition. It soars into the heart and soul of the eater. It is an exploration into how we can transform our relationship with food, our bodies and ourselves, and help our clients to do the same. I have been practicing for 10 years and have never found this nutritional wisdom anywhere else. This course has inspired me, energized me, reignited the love for what I do and has made me a finer Nutritional Therapist and Eating Psychology Coach. Marc David is truly a Nutritional Sage and one of the greatest mentors and teachers I have had on my journey.  

Amy Bondar, Certified Holistic Nutritionist + Eating Psychology Coach, Canada


Studying with Marc David and The Institute for the Psychology of Eating has made me a more insightful and powerful coach. Frankly, I wasn't sure if doing IPE's Professional Training was for me. I have a Masters degree in Psychology, over 20 years of study and work in the field of Health and Wellness and I was already working steadily with clients. I wasn't sure if I would learn anything new, but that wasn't the case at all. Not only did I learn new and highly effective ways of working with my clients, but I deepened what I knew and put it into a framework that makes me much more confident about my work and it's efficacy. The Institute for the Psychology of Eating has guided me and elevated me professionally and personally. IPE's approach is clear, compassionate, authentic, grounded and scientifically based. The Professional Training is the key to helping clients develop a positive relationship with food and body. I highly recommend studying with The Institute for the Psychology of Eating if you know that "what" you eat isn't the whole story when it comes to health and wellness.  

Nina Manolson, Health Coach + Mnd Body Eating Coach 


I started IPE’s professional training program when I was at a crossroads in my life. I knew that I was ready to start working with people to support healing, growth and transformation, but I didn't yet know how I was going to get there. I had many different skills that I acquired over the years, but something about IPE's training and approach resonated deeply with me. Through my education at the Institute, I was able to put together so many different pieces about counseling, nutrition, food and the mind-body connection. Not only did I experience profound personal transformation around my relationship with food and body image, but I also gained invaluable skills that allow me to work with women and teen girls around these very issues. The clients I work with have experienced miraculous changes in their lives because of the way I am able to understand and guide them. I love the work I do. Having such passion for my profession is one of the greatest gifts in my life.Marc David is a true expert and a pioneer in the field of Eating Psychology. His decades of clinical experience and masterful teaching style empower professionals to go out into the field with greater confidence, immense skill and a huge heart. I am profoundly grateful that I found IPE. This program will change your life and infinitely enhance your ability to work with people and support them in meaningful life changes.  

Emma Teitel, Teen Girl Mentor + Eating Psychology Counselor  


Most of us have heard the saying "opportunity knocks." When I registered for the IPE Professional Eating Psychology Coach Training, I knew that I was signing up for a unique program taught by Marc David and that the content would be very interesting and valuable to me. But what I didn't know was that I would also be given the opportunity to heal my own relationship with food, become part of a community of smart, like-minded individuals, and graduate with a tool kit of advanced skills to help others in my coaching practice. This program exceeded my expectations on every level. Each module was interesting, well organized, professionally delivered, and full of supplemental materials and recordings. The IPE staff is very accessible and supportive, making this distance learning program feel very personal. My heartfelt thanks to Marc and Emily for creating a wonderful program and to the IPE staff for all you do in support of it. This valuable information can now travel around the world and back. I hope these brilliant teachings, full of wisdom and insight, help heal all who are still waiting to learn these lessons. Thank you again to the Institute for so generously sharing this work with me.  

Susan Beckman Reagan, Founder + Director of Defining Nutrition


I am a psychologist, and have spent my professional career consulting with parents and teachers of children in day care. A lifelong learner with multiple graduate degrees, I have taken many continuing education classes in the last 20 years, and I always find something useful to incorporate into my work and my life. I was drawn to IPE because I have struggled with food and weight for my adult life, and I have lived with MS since 1996. I embarked on the training more for my personal evolution than to boost my professional career. I hoped this training would provide me with the hidden wisdom to transform my body and health so that I could feel good about myself. Instead this training has changed my thinking and my life. After years of looking to books and experts for answers, I have begun to find the answers within myself. I am learning to embrace body, mind and spirit, and I have come to see MS as body wisdom to be cherished rather than shunned. Marc David is a gifted teacher who delivers his message with passion, grace, humility and humor. It is clear he has invested years accumulating knowledge and wisdom. Drawing on the science of biology and nutrition, archetypal and spiritual psychology, and an in-depth understanding of the human psyche, Marc augments theory with a rich reservoir of case studies which illuminate the successes and challenges of counseling and bring to life his theoretical constructs. I learned a new way to listen to clients, to relax into the uncertainty that is always part of counseling, along with the tools to nurture and guide clients into a more nourishing relationship with food, their bodies, and their lives. In addition to lectures packed with information, Marc has compiled a comprehensive reading list to augment his teaching. Many of the books inform the evolution of his message - to redefine how we, as a collective, approach food, eating, nutrition, nourishment, embodiment, and healing. The class boards and online group provide forums for participants to interact and support each other, and I feel blessed to be part of a community of like-minded individuals walking this part of life's journey together. I recommend this course for its extraordinary learning experience to anyone seeking a unique approach which integrates nutrition science with mind-body psychology to advance a nutrition or therapy practice, and to anyone wanting to evolve personally.  

Jayne Beker, Psy.D. - Eating Psychology Coach


To say this training is life-changing would be an understatement. I originally enrolled hoping to better my own relationship with food and body. I got that and so much more! Not only have I found a joy and peace that I had forgotten was possible, but I have also found a new, inspiring career as an Eating Psychology Coach! The video lectures are very comprehensive, informative, compassionate, and authentic - and at times they made me laugh. The handouts provide a great set of tools to use both in your studies and for your own coaching practice. The Institute staff are extremely responsive to questions, the teleclasses provide valuable opportunity for interaction, and the support and sharing through the Facebook group has been invaluable. I feel like I have found a new family. I highly recommend this training to anyone who is in a wellness field, in fact, to anyone who is an eater! It is well worth the investment! Just be prepared - you will not emerge the same person as when you started, and that's a good thing.

Dawn MacLaughlin, Mind Body Eating Coach


The training is a groundbreaking body of work that is so needed in the world. Any approach to working with people in the realm of food, diet, and body would be incomplete without it! It has given me a much greater context for my own journey and allowed me to increase my compassion for myself and others. Professionally, I feel so much more confident in my capacity to provide value to my clients. It has provided me with great inspiration to create impactful messages to share in the world, which has attracted new clients! I have a deeper understanding of various challenges and more tools and places to go with my clients. The Eating Psychology Coach Certification Training will literally change your life! It’s an amazing community of thought leaders, and the content is well structured and easy to absorb. First class all the way.

Michelle Leath, Eating Psychology Coach


When I signed up for this coaching program, my main goals were to learn more about nutrition, psychology, coaching, and business. Now as a certified coach in the psychology of eating, I am proud to say that I have achieved my goals! I am starting a new business, have my first coaching clients coming in, and feel that I have learned much about my own relationship with eating. As a health-conscious person for many years I assumed I didn't really struggle with eating challenges the way that many do, but taking this program I realized that I had some unhealthy behaviors including some binge eating...The weekly study offered me compassion and curiosity for my (unhealthy) eating habits and allowed me to refocus on what's important - loving my self and body, eating HIGH QUALITY ingredients, and taking more time for the whole eating process - grocery shopping (farmers markets!), preparing meals, and savoring the food! Now I feel more inspired about and engaged in my health than ever before! It's becoming more and more clear to me how absolutely essential it is for us to inquire into what we're putting into our bodies...we can CHOOSE greater health, and when we have a supportive community (thanks to IPE Facebook!), a compassionate approach, constant education, it makes it easy and fun to make positive changes. ...Good news - with all these benefits I just ran my first triathlon and placed in the top 5%! Thank you so much for everything Marc, Emily, Stephanie, and all of IPE!  

Peter Craig, Mnd Body Eating Coach


Wendy Maartens

When I think about my training at IPE I am amazed at all that I have learned and how much I’ve changed in the past few months. In all of the courses I have taken in the past, I have learned facts and details, but Marc David has taught about how our and our client’s issues are more than just a tweak of a diet or more exercise—they are present to teach us about our personal journey through life. The most powerful lesson for me was about the stress response and how it changes our body chemistry, our inability to lose weight, causes digestive difficulties, leads to fatigue and a host of other body issues. “Slow down” are the key words to live by and have an enormous impact on our overall health and wellness. This training has benefited me both personally and professionally. Personally, I was ‘stress’ walking around—inability to lose weight, digestive issues and sleep issues. When I began practicing mindfulness, I found that I could minimize the stress effect in my own body and without changing how I ate (which was good nutrition), the weight has decided to depart on its own. My digestion has improved along with my sleep. Professionally, I am changing my entire coaching program. I am listening to my clients and allowing their journey to be at the forefront, allowing them to be who they are and to reach their highest purpose, without trying to fix or give them a list of ‘shoulds.’ I would, and I have, highly recommended the IPE Training to anyone who asks. I feel that IPE is truly a holistic approach to health and it values the client and their journey above all else. The training gives incredible insight to being a magnificent counselor which leads to incredible improvement in the life of our clients.

Wendy Martens, MA, NCC, CHHC, AADP - Founder, New Pathway to Health LLC


I can't say enough great things about the experiences that I've been through while taking this training. Learning the material is great, but integrating what I learned into true lifestyle transformation was my goal. And this program has literally shifted, transformed and expanded me personally and professionally in ways that I am eternally grateful for. So, Thank you all so much!!!! I learned the "art of languaging", teaching and communicating mind/body principles in a clear, focused and understandable way that produced results. I gained a better understanding of how the body, soul and spirit communicate with each other to create an environment of wholeness. Because of the rich content of this program, your practice will grow through positive and enthusiastic client referrals. If you're wanting to expand and deepen your physical, emotional and spiritual life: this school is for you. Tired of hearing the same information in different ways? The tools, techniques and concepts in this training are truly new, practical and innovative in ways that are life changing!
