Irvine, CA – Low-Fat. No-Fat. No-Protein. No Carbs. With so much conflicting information, it’s impossible to know what’s healthy for us and what isn’t; what will energize us and what will deplete us.
Paulina Temple is the founder of Body Temple Health and Wellness Coaching. As a certified health coach, Temple empowers her clients to achieve their health goals.
“Most people that come to me have been struggling for a long time,” says Temple. “Once they identify their obstacles to success they become self-motivated. They want to change."
Where most approaches to nutrition focus on restricting calories, carbs, fats or proteins, Temple helps her clients to create a happy, healthy life in a way that is flexible, fun and free of denial and discipline. She subscribes to the concept of bioindividuality: we are all biologically and chemically different so we all have different nutritional needs.
“I don’t have a one-size fits all diet,” says Temple. “One person’s food is another person’s poison, so we look to identify the foods that will allow you to overcome your self-sabotaging behaviors.”
According to Temple, ambivalence – you know you shouldn’t eat the cookie but you eat the cookie anyway – is typically driven by something else. So Temple will look at other aspects of your life, what she calls your “primary foods:” spirituality, career, physical activity and relationships.
“I’ve always been fascinated by the brain chemistry behind how our thoughts affect our bodies,” says Temple. “People like to see these things as separate, but it’s one and the same. You can change how you think by changing your body and you can change your body by changing how you think.”
