You CAN Make Peace with Food and Your Body Image ... Forever
Are you tired of dieting, or restricting yourself from eating certain foods because they are 'bad' for you, or you think you can lose weight if you do not eat them?
Do people judge you based on the food you eat?
Are you judging yourself?
Are you looking for help when it comes to your food and body image? But struggling?
ARE YOU READY TO.......
- End your struggle with food and body image?
- Stop blaming yourself for being hungry and then overeating?
- Remove yourself from the emotional and toxic diet culture we live in?
- Learn to be at peace with your body?
- Achieve an authentic, valued, and healthy life?
Replace those struggles with a way to help you heal from chronic dieting (or chaotic eating patterns of restriction, binge and emotional eating) and practice compassionate self-care through Intuitive Eating. With a way to ensure these habits and thoughts stay with you always.
Intuitive Eating is all about making peace with food, and your body. Behind this concept is the phrase – Health at Every Size ® (HAES).
HAES is a movement that promotes well-being and healthy habits over any number on the scale. Health at Every Size ® values size diversity and acceptance, trusting internal cues of hunger and fullness and creating healthy lifestyle habits.
Erica Leon offers a self-paced program that explores your relationship with food, your dieting history, readiness to integrate intuitive eating into your life, and details on making peace with food.
IMAGINE BEING ABLE TO.......

“Learning the skills and mindset of Intuitive Eating with Erica Leon has been truly a transformative experience. I’d been in the diet-cycle for most of my life and had no idea how damaging it had become. I’d developed a set of rules, low self-esteem, and guilt for not having the discipline to “fix” this aspect of my life. Through this journey, Erica, the guest speakers, and the other women in this e-course-turned-family and support group have helped me see the world through fresh eyes and being to reclaim ownership over my body and my nutrition.”
I came to Erica expecting that she’d help me find solutions, boundaries and an expectation for what nutrition should be, instead I found comfort, healing and a whole new approach to living. This is the best decision I’ve ever made.”
"On national Registered Dietician/ nutritionist day I just want to recognize the amazing woman, Erica Leon, RD, who started this program. I am lucky enough to see her in person weekly and she always makes me smile and feel confident in my progress through this Intuitive Eating journey. Every day I wake up and eat what my body feels like, and I'm not afraid of food anymore. It doesn't have the power to ruin my day or my body. It's just food. I feel so much more free now that I don't have to count and obsess anymore. What a gift intuitive eating has been for me. Of course I have my struggles too, but I know this is a better life than one spent on a diet. Erica has helped me in more ways than I can possibly describe. Erica, you are a treasure!"
- Current Client
I'm Erica Leon -- a Certified Eating Disorder Dietitian & Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor. I've been in private practice for more than 30 years helping men, women and children feel better in their bodies and with their food intake. I help anyone struggling with an eating disorder or disordered eating, as well as chronic dieters wishing to finally eat in an enjoyable and sustainable way.
I have been on the board of the New York Chapter of iaedp, the International Association of Eating Disorders Professionals and am often quoted in the media on topics related to disordered eating and the non-diet approach. Some of these publications include:
" I have done many diets and spent most of my life struggling with my weight. After meeting Erica and now working with her both individually and in her group program, I quickly realized that this was something different, this was something I can manage and do for the rest of my life. Intuitive eating is not a diet -- it is just paying attention to food and listening to my body, I have not done for years. At times, it has been a struggle to be an intuitive eater but I have seen so many changes in myself. I am no longer a slave to the scale and I eat what I like! I eat without guilt and have started to enjoy food again. I owe much of my success to the support and encouragement I have received from Erica. She is amazing! Thanks again!"
"Working with Erica in her online intuitive eating group has redefined my perception of health and nutrition. As an aspiring Registered Dietitian, this course has been incredibly influential in my outlook on food and wellness and will undoubtedly shape my future career.
Learning the principles of intuitive eating has helped me reflect on my eating and exercise habits. Although I would not consider myself a “dieter”, this course identified areas of improvement and allowed me let go of food restrictions and disordered eating habits.
Erica is such a kind, understanding and compassionate mentor and leader. She facilitates fruitful discussion and includes guest speakers who are experts in other fields that help debunk diet culture. This course has helped shift my focus away from calories, weight, workouts and meal plans and has encouraged me to engage in life without unnecessary stress caused by preoccupation with food and exercise.
Thank you, Erica!"
