Nourishing our body - and brain - through intuitive eating

Nourishing our body - and brain - through intuitive eating

By Kate Moryoussef

Navigating healthy eating, food and nutrition alongside ADHD is a big topic and for this week’s guest, Aleta Storch -an 'anti-diet' dietitian, therapist, and certified Body Trust® Provider - this is her expertise.

Aleta specializes in providing anti-diet, values-centred, body liberation work with people who have a history of disordered eating, autoimmune conditions, and/or ADHD. 

Aleta currently works with individual clients in her virtual private practice (Wise Heart Nutrition), and also runs a unique and groundbreaking online group program, "An Anti-Diet Approach to Eating with ADHD", which she developed as a resource for supporting ADHDers in navigating food and eating difficulties, and in developing intuitive eating skills in order to nourish both the body and the brain.

During this episode, Kate and Aleta speak about:
