Mind Body Nutrition


Nicole has a different approach to nutrition. She helps clients have a better understanding of nutrition, and develop a happier and healthier relationship with food and body through nourishment and self-love.

What is Mind-Body Nutrition?

Mind-Body Nutrition is an exciting and timely new field that advances the practice of clinical nutrition by exploring the psychophysiology of how thoughts, feelings and beliefs impact nutritional metabolism and health. Originated by Marc David, Founder of the Institute for the Psychology of Eating, it goes far beyond classical nutrition by focusing on the fascinating connections between brain, body, and behavior. Simply put, what we eat is only half of the story of good nutrition. The other half is who we are as eaters. Mind Body Nutrition reveals how stress physiology, the relaxation response, breathing, awareness, pleasure, meal timing and much more profoundly influence digestion and calorie burning. It offers practical and results-oriented strategies for the most commonly seen eating challenges and health issues of our times.


Why We Are Different

Lean Beans, Lean Teens, and Lean Queens are located in a private and unique facility offering personalized programs to help individuals of all ages to improve their health. The program is specifically designed for those who need the guidance and motivation to get started in a comfortable and unintimidating environment. The goal of the program is to specifically address the needs of the individual while instilling healthy habits. Learning to understand one's unique journey and relationship with food and body as well as incorporating physical activity, and healthy eating is necessary for lasting results.

Each client has a thorough consultation assessing his or her current health status. In addition, the consultation addresses personal preferences, exercise interests, fears, dislikes, stressors, and attitudes towards physical activity and eating. Using this information, an individualized program is designed to help clients gain the most of the program as well as achieve their health goals.
