This podcast changed my life
This podcast really opened my eyes in the way of why we over eat or have eating disorders and why we can’t lose or gain weight literally the most important necessity is food and why do have so much trouble with it . This podcast is one of my all time favorites I’m so thankful ❤️

Love this❤️
I listened to this religiously for about a year. It totally changed how I see myself and helped me recognize the unhealthy ways I was thinking. It was so wonderful to hear so many dozens of stories— all so different but I could almost always relate in one way or another. It has been an empowering journey and this podcast was really a tool for healing.

Click bait
Seems like a lot of this is click bait. In the weight loss series specifically he claims the missing piece is spirituality. While an interesting take, ultimately he hangs the same old carrot on a stick and implies that weight loss will when... and then describes the missing piece. However you word this type of argument, you are placing blame on the individual. Fat is not a moral failure. It is biology. Stigma and stress and restriction often lead to weight gain and to blame it on the individual seems to miss the message in his own podcast. It is the social context that should impart patience and love etc. The only way to overcome our national eating disorder is to accept what is and embody the fact that true health will never be determined by the number on a scale or body shape/size.

This podcast is just what I needed!
I have struggled with body image, and food issues since I was very young. I recently found The Psychology of Eating podcast, and it’s really helping me understand the root of some of my issues. I love the phone sessions with all different kinds of people. Marc offers great insight and advice to help overcome issues around food.

Different perspective on food
This podcast gives a totally different perspective of food, a part from the nutrition, shows how much the perspective of the one eating impacts the nutrition that is absorbed. It addresses the food relationships but the lessons learned can be applied to every aspect of life.

Archetypes in us all
Thank you for this podcast. I have found it invaluable in learning about myself through others' stories about their relationship to food and the external world. This is a unique and powerful podcast format that feels so deeply effective that I have to listen to every one! I also take something out of everyone's story that relates to my own. I appreciate you giving voice to the archetypes in in us all.

So Supportive!!!!!
The coaching sessions with Marc are so supportive. I download them & listen over & over to deeply digest the insights. His coaching is direct & soothing at the same time. I can feel his authenticity, natural intuition & care coming thru in unique ways for each client. Nourishment for the soul. It has supported my personal growth with my own relationship with my body, health & food. Thank you so much for your amazing work!!!

helpful
stumbled on this podcast and have benefitted by it, eating disorders are very complex, multilayered and individualized, the directors take a very compassionate approach.

Relatable and Real
Really helpful and enlightening, addressing a variety of issues related to food, eating and psychology. First sessions are relatable and real, and follow-ups tend to be less serious (in a good way) and positive. I have to say I hope Emily to sound like she's actually talking though; she sounds monotonous and unnatural.

Very engaging and insightful!
I really enjoy and learn from this podcast. It's helpful to me on many levels. Appreciate the sharing others do and the work!

Great insights!
This podcast is so easy to listen to and gives valuable insight into what's behind some of my own habits.

Excellent Coaching and insights!
Marc has a great understanding of why food gets in the way of our happiness. It does not have to be, thank you for helping us looking at our body in a different manner!

Getting repetitive, same advice to everyone
I have listened to every one of these for a few months and the advice is all starting to sound the same. My summary of the advice given to most callers: 1. Don't weigh yourself for at least three months 2. Put your weight loss goal aside and just love yourself unconditionally. 3. Nobody,knows what you are supposed to weigh anyhow so quit worrying about it. 4. If you are a fast eater, slow down and enjoy your food. Of all that advice, it's hard to argue with the ideas that we should slow down and eat mindfully, and that we should love our bodies. The rest of the advice seems more questionable. It sounds like Marc tells most callers to give up on their weight loss goals. Perhaps some people need to do just that, but doubtless others are experiencing real consequences from being overweight and truly need to do more than just "love on" themselves. If you are looking for advice on how to actually shed pounds this won't hep much. It seems like most callers (and most reviewers here) are in some way associated without the "Institute for the Psychology of Eating". I do enjoy the brief information-packed segments from Emily Rosen, and wish there was a way to subscribe to just those. Questions: - why are all of the callers women? Are women the only ones with food issues? - why does Marc say in every session that he is fitting six months to a year of coaching advice into an hour? That's just not possible. If a coach is taking six months to a year to deliver the content found in one of these podcasts, it sounds like someone is being ripped off. - why the burst of five star reviews right after the podcast was introduced in April?

Repetitive
I gave it a shot, but I just couldn't get over how repetitive the cases are on the show. The host's advice to each of them are just different ways of saying the same thing, and most of the time it truly is just "mental" advice, hardly any practical advice of what they could physically do to help their situation. Not really my thing, but may be good for some.

Informational But Entertaining
I love this podcast, the counselor is always giving great advice. Other similar podcasts sometimes feel like lectures or are really boring, this one never does it is an easy listen and fun.

Extremely Helpful
I appreciate that this podcast is professionaly produced. Even more important it delivers material that I have found very, very useful. As it relates to the serious issue of weight and eating I found it so helpful that Marc and Emily come across as accepting people and in no way to take the topic lightly or treat the people interviewed in a disrespectful manner. Thank you!

The past few have been exceptional
The last two sets of client sessions and informational segments have been exceptional. I really appreciate this format that you have come up with. Thank you for the contributions that you are making.

Beyond Helpful!!!!!
I highly recommend this podcast! I've been struggling with my weight since I was six years old. By becoming a fly on the wall during a real counseling session, I found practical and compassionate advise that decreased my shame and my stress by several notches!

Excellent resource
It is a relief to listen to this podcast, which puts the final pieces into the puzzle of weight and body wisdom. Marc and Emily are so compassionate; they model the lovingkindness and acceptance they encourage in listeners. The warm fuzzies are accompanied by evidence-based mind body nutrition info which is helpful every time. I take notes during this podcast. Thank you!

Thoughtful approach to issues with food & eating
I'm very impressed with this podcast. Well produced, some episodes are interviews with people who have issues with food - about 1 hr long - and others are 4-min monologues by one of the heads of the institute. Both formats cover a wide variety of topics, different ways of thinking about food and our bodies, and offer many different techniques to deal with food & body issues. Highly recommend for those struggling with disordered eating of any kind, or anyone who knows a person who deals with these issues.

Insightful!
I am so happy I stumbled upon this podcast. Marc's sessions with clients are unbelivably insightful to body image and eating issues that many women struggle with. Personally, it has been very thought provoking and comforting to know that I do not struggle with some of the topics alone. The one critic i will mention is Emily's short podcasts are not engaging. I'm not sure if its her speech rhythm and tone - but they come across as unauthentic. Content might be valuable but i dont enjoy listening to her.

I guess men don't have issues
Wow, every single episode has an interesting take away. However, there were zero consultations with men. Please try to open up the discussion with some men. Otherwise, very helpful.

Love it!
I just discovered this wonderful podcast and I am hooked. Marc's gentle coaching touches me every time as he guides his guest on her path to feeling whole again. Emily's short reports are relevant and succinct . Thank you! Thank you! I have recommended this podcast to several friends!

Love It!
Very impressed! Love the podcast! I started to listen to it a couple of days ago and haven't been able to stop. I am a nutritionist and I'm considering entering the program, after listening to the things I can learn I can't wait to enter. It is already helping me with my clients...I'm very thankful for this podcast! Great work!

New favorite podcast
I LOVE this podcast. It is so therapeutic and full of smart insights on health, weight, and food. The episodes so far have been really helpful in shining a light on some of my own struggles. Thank you!

Finally something I can relate to
I took a shot at downloading a couple podcasts while browsing for a replacement podcast when I ran out of Jillian Michaels episodes. I am now addicted to listening to this - in the car, when I'm cleaning the house, running, at work, and any time I can get a few minutes or a couple hours in. I have had so many "ah ha" moments where I can relate to things said by Marc or the caller that I never realized before. My problem now is that I don't know where to start and where my issues lie because there were so many relatable moments! I would love to be a caller on this podcast if I ever had the chance.

Eye opening!
If you've ever struggled with food or weight issues, this podcast is for you. Each guest's story is so different yet I can relate to something in each. An amazing and inspiring hour!

Eye Opening!
I have only listened to about 3 of Marks sessions and have already gotten so much insight out of them. Practical ideas to do to start changing my thinking and comfort in the fact that I am normal and other people go through the same things

Game changer
HOLY COW! I could not be feeling more grateful and excited that I stumbled on this podcast, it is going to be (and already is) a total game changer for me and I’m sure many many others. I’ve struggled with eating almost my whole life and was starting to feel really panicked because I have a wedding coming up and I felt like I would never break out of this obsessive body image junk that haunts me day and night and actually enjoy this time in my life, but thanks to this podcast I have hope again. Marc has an unbelievably intuitive and caring approach and I usually find myself in tears at the end of each episode (and sometimes throughout the whole thing!) because it is so powerful. I am more thankful than words can say that I have found this. If you have any issues around eating at all I suggest you drop everything and listen NOW! Thank you Marc & Emily

Much Needed!
More people need to understand the concepts covered in these podcasts. The world is so uneducated on foods, diet, mental health, exercise, and more. I believe that this podcast will change the way that you eat and see food forever. Keep up the good work.

I'm just getting started, but really happy so far. I'm excited to begin my transformation. I just had a baby a year ago and really want to get back in shape, learn how to eat properly, and most of all become a good role model for my daughter in terms of nutrition and exercise. I can't afford a nutritionist, so podcasts here I come!

Stop reading the script, Emily!
For gosh sakes, ou take an important topic and read the script in a monotone at 1.5 speed. You drone on and on with no inflection in your voice, no natural pauses, or a tone of caring. For you I give 1 star. Marc gets 5.

Great podcasts
By listening to Marc I have gotten a handle on emotional and binge eating. I now have a healthy retationship with myself and food. These podcasts make him and Emily available to me any time I want! Thanks
Fan of Marc
