To Love Your Body, You Have to Love Your Food

Former finance whiz Dana James felt called to food coaching to facilitate her own personal growth. “The subconscious reason was that I had my own issues with food and body image,” states the renowned nutritional biochemist, functional medicine and cognitive behavioral therapist. She has dedicated herself to investigating the mental and emotional patterning that affects food choices. Those nutritional decisions can affect overall well-being.

Throughout her journey, Dana has been featured in Shape MagazineWomen’s Health and Self Magazine. She has been featured on Elle.comThe Today Show, Good Morning New York and Martha Stewart Living. James has helped thousands of clients create self-love (and hot bods). Today, ALOHA Expert Dana James shares some of her expertise with us:

  • Eat food that brings you peace, not a momentary high.
  • When you feel like you can’t say ‘no’ to a food, it’s likely you have a sensitivity to it.
  • The quickest way to increase your appetite is to eat bread. Do the opposite if you want to lower it.
  • No amount of green juice is going to take away sadness. Recognize it, feel it, then release it.
  • We all feel pain, some of us just don’t use food to mask it.
  • Use food to support, strengthen and nourish you, not deplete you.
