Pittsburgh, PA – Jamie Michelle is a body image coach and a certified expert in nutrition, fitness and wellness.
According to Jamie, we’ve been taught not to trust our bodies. We believe we’re supposed to hate our bodies, and be ashamed of our bodies, which makes us break the important and powerful connection that we have with our bodies. So, when we fail on a diet, we blame ourselves for not being strict enough or think that something's wrong with our body, but it's the diet industry that's failing you because they're not telling you the truth. You don't need any of that.
Jamie works mostly with women who have struggled with their bodies for years, in some cases for decades. She says that about 90% of her clients have eating disorders or have struggled with disordered eating in the past. A lot of them also have an unhealthy relationship with exercise and might even be recovering from an exercise addiction.
The women Jamie coaches are high-achieving perfectionists. They’re very successful in whatever they set out to do in terms of their academics or career, but they’re also very educated on fitness and nutrition. They research everything they possibly can about food, about how to lose weight. They just know too much, and they’re desperate for help.
Jamie says she is grateful for every piece of her journey because it brought her to where she is today, where she can help show other women that they don't need another diet. All they have to do is accept their body, listen to it, and trust it.
