I have had many mamas reach out to me about how to bring everything they are learning about intuitive eating over to their kiddos – and because I can only offer what I have learned because I am not yet a mom, I wanted to bring it to The Food Freedom Lab somebody who would be able to share just that! In episode 052, guest Elle Mace shares how to raise intuitive eaters from a place of love, compassion, and growth.
WHO IS ELLE MACE?
Elle is an ILM Level 5 Coach & Mentor, Intuitive Eating Coach, and Nutrition Coach. She is currently training at The National Centre for Eating Disorders, completing The Master Practitioner Program.
Elle has always been passionate about health and fitness. However, for years she struggled with an unhealthy relationship with food. This unhealthy relationship with food started at the age of 10 when she received a few comments about being fat, and that was the start of years of disordered eating.
Fast forward a few years….. Elle decided that enough was enough. She realized she had to free herself from the food demons and fall back in love with her body. It wasn't an easy journey; it took strength, determination, and self-care, but she did it!
Elle is SO passionate about spreading the word to women, men, and children that there is another way to live. Elle now uses her experience, qualifications, and knowledge to help others heal their relationship with food, their bodies, and most importantly, themselves.
