Relax and Burn Calories


Tue, Aug 30, 2016


In today's weight-obsessed culture, it's easy to feel pressured about having a certain body shape or size. Messages from family, peers, or the media often tell us we need to be thin to be happy, and we can even start internalizing these beliefs and beat ourselves up for not having the perfect look. Some people think that these continual reminders about how important it is to get rid of excess pounds will keep us motivated to stay on a diet or put in our daily gym time, but the reality is sobering. Consant criticism, whether it's coming from others or from ourselves, keeps us in a state of chronic stress about our weight, which produces a biochemical chain reaction in our body that actually makes it much harder to burn fat - and may even have the opposite effect. In this compelling new podcast episode, Emily Rosen, Director of the Institute for the Psychology of Eating, explains why it's time to let go of fighting our bodies, and let the magic of life take over.

Healthy, Sexy, Slow


Tue, Aug 16, 2016


If you believe that good nutrition is key to good health, you probably put quite a bit of thought into what you eat. After all, you want to make sure your body is getting the vitamins, minerals, and macronutrients that it needs to thrive. But what about the eating process itself? Do you take time to savor your food? Are you fully present when you eat, or do you prefer to grab a protein bar on the go? When we eat in a rush, we not only miss the opportunity to experience one of the greatest pleasures of life. More and more, science is proving that our metabolism functions best when we give our meals the time and space they deserve. In fact, fast eating can cause our digestive system to eliminate nutrients instead of absorbing them into the bloodstream - and all the care we put into choosing that beautiful bunch of kale is literally washed down the drain. In this timely new podcast, Emily Rosen, Director of the Institute for the Psychology of Eating, explains why slowing down to eat may be the most important dietary change you’ll ever make!

The Stress-Metabolism Connection


Tue, Aug 02, 2016


Have you ever found yourself in a situation like this? You run out the door in the morning with breakfast in hand - something portable that you can eat in the car during your commute. Lunchtime comes before you know it, but you still have lots to do, so you eat in front of your computer while you type. At the end of the day, you’re too hungry to wait for a home-cooked meal; instead, you hit the drive-through window and you’re finished with your dinner before you even get home. Later, you may not feel very well, and you might wonder if something is wrong with your digestion. But in fact, your digestion may be functioning perfectly. It’s just doing something you don’t want it to do - namely, keeping energy in reserve for fight or flight, because your fast, distracted eating throughout the day has signaled your system that you’re under threat. In this eye-opening new podcast episode, Emily Rosen explains why these common eating behaviors can make it harder for us to digest our meals, even if we’re eating nothing but the healthiest foods. If you’re one of the many people who don’t think they have time for a lunch break, you won’t want to miss this video. Spend five minutes with us now, and you just may change your metabolism for good!

Is Your Food Life Getting in the Way of Your Sex Life?


Tue, Jul 12, 2016


It's amazing how closely linked food and sexuality can be in our mind, often without our even realizing it. We may spend years dieting with the goal of having a more attractive body that will one day bring us our soul mate, or we might find ourselves turning to food for comfort when relationships are stressful. We might even look to certain ingredients as aphrodisiacs when our desire levels seem to be low. There are so many ways our relationship with food can intertwine with our thoughts and feelings toward romance, sexuality and intimacy. Sometimes these connections will be positive and life-affirming, but at other times, our concerns with food can get in the way of our love life. In this eye-opening new podcast episode, Emily Rosen, Director of the Institute for the Psychology of Eating, looks at what can happen when food issues take over - and how we can reclaim our sexuality in the midst of our beautiful human imperfection.

The Metabolic Power of the Sacred


Tue, Jul 05, 2016


We often think of experiences like falling in love, grieving a death, or standing in awe of a beautiful natural landscape as phenomena of the emotions, of the heart or of the soul. But as the saying goes, we are spiritual beings having a human experience, which means that transcendent and meaningful feelings such as these each have a precise biological component, as well. When we feel pleasure, our brain is producing molecules that cause us to feel pleasure; when we feel humble, our body is making chemicals that trigger this feeling. And just like any chemical reaction that takes place in our body, all of these molecules have a measurable impact on our metabolism. In this fascinating new podcast episode, Emily Rosen, Director of the Institute for the Psychology of Eating, takes a look at the ways our experiences of the sacred can literally change our metabolism, and how we can tap into this often-overlooked source of metabolic power to transform our lives for good.

For many people who struggle with obsessive thoughts about food and body, a closer look reveals that food isn't the real issue after all, but a distraction from something deeper (and possibly scarier).

Numbers and Nutrition: What's the Connection?


Tue, Jun 07, 2016


When it comes to nutrition, there's no shortage of seemingly important numbers. We have recommended daily allowances for nutrients, calorie amounts, cholesterol levels, and target weight, just to name a few. And if we're following a specific diet plan, chances are, we know a lot of those numbers by heart. We may even use them to help us make important life decisions.

In this thought-provoking new podcast episode, Emily Rosen, Director of the Institute for the Psychology of Eating, looks at the benefits and limitations of nutritional data, and offers some powerful alternative sources of guidance. If you find yourself checking the scale more often than you'd like, it may be time to give the numbers a break and tune into your own body's wisdom about what it needs to be fully nourished.

A Deeper Look at Vitamin O


Tue, Apr 12, 2016


The word "calorie" can evoke some strong emotional reactions, but when it comes down to it, a calorie is just a measure of the energy that's released when something is burned. As your body metabolizes the food you eat, the energy is either put to use or stored for later. As we know from grade-school science, if you want something to burn, you need to give it some oxygen. The human metabolic process is no different: in order to burn calories, the body needs plenty of oxygen. Luckily, oxygen is readily available and it's completely free. But far too many of us are actually oxygen deficient, and as a result, our metabolism isn't working at its full capacity. Tune in to this new podcast episode with Emily Rosen, Director of the Institute for the Psychology of Eating. You'll learn how to get your recommended daily allowance of Vitamin O, and keep your metabolic fire burning.

The Psychobiology of Chewing


Tue, Mar 15, 2016


In today's fast-paced world, it's easy to find ourselves rushing through meals. In fact, we can be in such a hurry that we don't even think to fully chew our food. And when we eat so quickly that we're swallowing each bite without really chewing, we miss out on more than just the enjoyment of the flavors and textures. That’s because chewing serves important biological and psychological functions. So when we skip this necessary step, we can limit the nutritional value of our meal and create unwanted eating habits. Join Emily Rosen, Director of the Institute for the Psychology of Eating, as she breaks down the fascinating and complex evolutionary purpose behind our need to "crunch" in this new podcast episode.
