Are you ready to approach nutrition and exercise from a completely different perspective?
Hi, I'm Jeff Ash.
I believe ...
And, I believe this applies to everyone regardless of the size and shape of their body!
How May I Help You?
Are you an individual looking for help in breaking free from the cycle of one diet after another? Would you like to finally feel relaxed and confident when it comes to food, physical activity, and your body?
Are you concerned about your child or adolescent's weight? Are they starting to make comments about their body size and shape? Considering putting them on a diet or limiting certain foods or groups of foods? Are they picky or obsessed with sweets?
Education and speaking are huge passions of mine. As a co-host of two different podcasts, I seem to never tire of discussing issues related to food, physical activity, health, etc. I would love speak to your group, classroom, church, sports team, etc. on a variety of topics. Or, if you are a podcaster and are looking for a guest, I'd love to chat!
What approach do I use with adults and teens?
I’m a huge proponent of Intuitive Eating and guess what, IT’S NOT JUST FOR WOMEN! While typically targeted at women, it’s often misunderstood. So, what is Intuitive Eating? Well, it’s an evidence-based, “self-care eating framework, which integrates instinct, emotion, and rational thought” created by two dietitians, Evelyn Tribole and Elyse Resch in 1995. The framework consists of 10 principles:
It takes some work to heal your relationship with food and implement these principles but it is well worth every minute! Some people can use the book, “Intuitive Eating: A Revolutionary Anti-Diet Approach” by Evelyn Tribole and Elyse Resch to work through these principles on their own. However, many find it extremely helpful to have an experienced professional guide them through the process. That’s where I come in! I would love to partner with you.
What about parents with younger kids?
Hey dads! CHILD NUTRITION IS NOT JUST MOM’S RESPONSIBILITY! The Division of Responsibility in Feeding (DOR) is a powerful, evidence-based approach to nutrition particularly well-suited for children and pre-teens. The model divides the roles of the parent and the child in such a way that helps nurture and maintain the child’s innate ability to regulate their food intake, both in amount and type of food. What happens in a DOR household?
