Emotional Eating Seminar:

Blending Movement, Nutrition and Mental Health for Optimal Wellbeing

with Rochelle Rice, MA, Jeanette Bronée, CHHC and Karol Ward, LCSW

October 5-6, 2013

My History:

Emotional EatingSince 1995, I have been working passionately with the plus size population.  The foundation of my work is movement – how can I help a woman move through space with grace and ease in the body she has right now.  I believe women of size have the right to a movement program that works for her body as it is, right now, today.

But for years, I personally struggled with bulimia, hiding behind the cruel comfort of food.  Secretly, like a princess waiting to be rescued, I kept hoping someone would come along and save me from the emotional dragon banging on my door.  But no one and nothing could save me, and in my self-destructiveness, I virtually abandoned myself.

Over the years, it has been the continuous blend of movement, nutrition and mental health that have shaped my path.  I continue to believe the more I learn about myself, the better I am at supporting you in your quest for health.

This Emotional Eating Seminar is for you if:

  • You’ve spent a lifetime struggling with your weight.
  • Food is your secret lover or best friend.
  • You have felt hopeless and powerless over food.
  • You are exhausted by the chaotic behavior.
  • You have searched endlessly for the “solution”.
  • You want more clarity around your confusing relationship with food.

What you will learn:

I have personally worked with both Jeanette and Karol.  Many of my clients have also worked with these women.  We have presented together at Full, Fit & Fabulous in New York City where we first introduced this idea of blending the movement, nutrition and mental health.  Jeanette and Karol are extremely professional, authentic and straightforward – delivering the right amount of information at the appropriate time and helping you find the freedom within the structure of an eating program.  In this program you will learn:

  • How movement can be the catalyst for blending these three modalities.
  • How and why to eat differently so you can make your own unique choices, and achieve a shift in your life.
  • The power of boundaries, the strength in asking, and the direct application to your food choices.
  • The ability to blend movement, nutrition and mental health from the inside out.


  • You are welcome to bring food or go out locally to get it and bring it back for the lunch on Saturday.  The lunch will be Rochelle’s Breathe & Eat: A Mindful Eating Program.  You would be responsible for the cost of the food.  Details to follow.  Snack and lunch on Sunday will be in the same Breathe & Eat format.
