Infertility Coaching with Heather Huhman

Caitlin and Heather discuss how to eat intuitively rather than let food cause you stress:

INTRODUCTION

  • I’d like to start by hearing a little bit about you. Tell us about your academic background and training.
  • Why did you choose a career in women’s health?
  • Take us through your career.

INTUITIVE EATING

  • What is intuitive eating, and how is it different than mindful eating?
  • Can you practice intuitive eating when you have specific health concerns, such as being prediabetic? What is the best way to approach this?
  • What kind of women with infertility would benefit from intuitive eating, and how will it help them?
  • How can you love your body even when you feel like it is failing you?
  • What’s the mindset you should have when approaching taking care of your body while trying to get pregnant?
  • How will intuitive eating help you when you get pregnant?
  • Why should intuitive eating be a priority? Is it just for mental health, or is there an actual measurable health outcome? For example, does it always result in weight loss?
  • What’s the simplest way to get started with intuitive eating, and how long will it take?
  • If you’re told by a doctor to lose weight because you’re not in the optimal BMI range, is it really necessary to lose weight to be considered “healthy”?
  • How do you go about intuitive eating while advocating for eating healthy foods, without overthinking your food?
  • When you find yourself wanting a treat in the absence of feelings of biological hunger, how should you respond?
  • How can you stop craving unhealthy foods when you’re not hungry and stop feeling guilty about it?
  • What would you tell someone who is getting hungry every few hours and trying to honor that hunger but worried about eating too often?
  • What if you’ve been trying intuitive eating for months but still find that you’re not wanting vegetables? Will you ever crave them?
  • If you’ve been practicing intuitive eating for a bit but still have diet-like thoughts that lead to guilt, how can you ensure you continue to move in the right direction?
  • We often associate exercise with the need to lose weight. Is there a way to apply the principles of intuitive eating to exercise?
  • What would you tell someone who tried intuitive eating before but didn’t trust herself and felt guiltier than ever?
  • Can you share a client success story? (Must be related to infertility!)
  • Is there anything else you’d like to add?

WRAPPING UP

  • What words of hope would you offer to women who are stressed-out by food?
