How I went from a miserable dietitian to helping mindful women align with their highest self while healing their relationship with food and their body.

Before I built a proven healing framework called Food Liberation that helps women end emotional eating for good, before I became Marie Kondo’s yoga teacher, and before I listened to my intuition and moved to the countryside of Japan...

 

There was an uninspired dietitian calculating calories, telling patients what they can’t eat, and scared that she won’t find her true calling.

I worked in hospitals across Los Angeles for 8 years, watching the clock every day waiting for the workday to end, and eventually waking up with stomach cramps and tightness in my jaw, needing morning affirmations to get out of bed to head to work.

 

 

I wasn’t aligned with my highest self.

 

 

 

While I moved up the corporate ladder every few years, reaching a six-figure salary, and enjoying my comfortable and fun LA life, I felt something really important missing.

 

Even though I became a Registered Dietitian to serve others, my work didn’t feel right for me.

 

I envied those who had a strong sense of self and seemed grounded.

 

 

8 years into my healthcare career, I finally saw a glimmer of hope. ​

 

My yoga practice led me on an intuitive path. When I trained to become a yoga teacher, it gave me the opportunity to face my highest self, where my truth lay hidden this whole time. I felt the presence of my dharma, my purpose.

 

It emphasized the misalignment of my career path in conventional nutrition of western medicine. 

 

The willingness to show up for yourself, get quiet, and go within that frees you. 

I left healthcare behind and let my intuition guide me. I needed to trust in the process.

Then I found my perfect match: Intuitive Eating, a sustainable and compassionate solution to end dieting and find food freedom.

It became clear that health wasn’t just about the food and exercise. It was the emotional care that was often neglected but so crucial to the big picture health. It was alignment with the highest self. 

My mission became to help intuitive women who want to become aligned with their highest self and heal their relationship with food & body for good in an intuitive and sustainable way.

​ 

It is a joy to witness the transformation of these women who are frustrated about their body find freedom.

 

They no longer binge eat, feel guilt or shame with food, and become confident in their skin.  

 

They not only heal their relationship with food and body but thrive, be present for their children and partners, and most of all show up for themselves.

 

If you are feeling hopeless about your relationship with food, there is a way out. It’s not a quick fix. It takes practice and patience. It’s about being able to trust in yourself and in the process. It is possible to quit dieting for good and live your highest self.

Meet my co-coach

Kristina

Registered Dietitian

& Food Liberation grad

As a dietitian, I put an immense amount of pressure on myself to live, eat, and be a certain way when it came to my health and body image just because of my profession. ⁠

Hello! I’m Kristina, a Registered Dietitian (RD) and recent Food Liberation grad! I have struggled with my weight and body image for as long as I can remember. ⁠

I’ve tried all diets and weight loss programs; you name it, I likely did it or was well on my way. ⁠

My self-esteem had always been low and I had very rare moments where I felt comfortable in my own body. ⁠

As a dietitian, I put an immense amount of pressure on myself to live, eat, and be a certain way when it came to my health and body image just because of my profession. ⁠

That pressure became so toxic, it led to disordered eating habits. I restricted, binged, over exercised, and became so fixated to transform my body into an unrealistic size. ⁠

The vicious cycle needed to stop and that’s where I connected with Mayuko and learned about her intuitive eating program. I knew right away her program was EVERYTHING I needed to heal myself from the inside and out.⁠

Through Food Liberation, I felt our sessions were individualized for me and only me. Mayuko was able to be patient and simply listen and meet me where I was in my journey. We worked through difficult conversations that I couldn’t even open up to therapists. We were able to build a great relationship and rapport with one another and at the end of the program, I was able to achieve FREEDOM! ⁠

Freedom from diet culture. ⁠
Freedom from shaming my body. ⁠
Freedom from weight stigma. ⁠

And most importantly, freedom from my OWN insecurities. ⁠

In this new chapter of my life, I can now nourish myself without restrictions, appreciate my body for everything that it's capable of, and confidently say I have the tools to continue working on the best version of me. ⁠

Because of this experience, I felt empowered to help others like myself and those that could relate. ⁠

So with that, I am excited to announce that I have joined the Food Liberation family as a mentor! I am here to listen to YOUR story and help YOU achieve food freedom!
