I’m Soshy Adelstein,
I am the coach and owner of Embody Nutrition.
Eating should be easy.
It’s not what you eat, but how you eat.
You should never go on a diet again.
You can learn to trust yourself and your instincts around food.
You can make peace with your body.
I teach women all over the world how to let go of old beliefs around dieting, eating, exercise, and weight. I practice through the lens of Intuitive Eating, and use the health at every size approach in my coaching. I am a graduate of the Institute for Integrative Nutrition.
Because many women grow up with well-intended people “teaching” them how and what to eat, they lose the ability to listen to cues that their bodies are giving them...and instead follow “rules” that they’ve set for themselves. Over time, this leads to a complete disconnection of the mind and body. This often looks like:
Avoidance of food like sugar and carbs
Obsession over the scale
Terrible body image
Harmful self-talk about your lack of control and discipline
Intuitive eating means that you make decisions about what to eat based on what your body wants and needs - not what your mind tells you that you are allowed to do. If you listen, your body is giving you constant information - I am hungry, I want this, I don’t want this, this is how much I need, this is when I need it, this doesn’t feel good, this does feel good.
It can feel impossible to tap into that voice when it’s been silenced for so long.
I work with women to help them peel back the layers of beliefs, rules, calorie counting, and obsession about food that has shaped their eating patterns and body image.
What does life look like for my clients after they complete my Intuitive Eating coaching program:
They stop going on diets - forever.
They heal their disordered eating.
They are free from guilt and anxiety about food and weight.
They don’t spend time thinking about if today was a good food day or a bad food day.
They enjoy social outings and parties without obsessing about food.
They enjoy the foods they love without compromising their health.
They eat when they are hungry and stop when they are full in an uncomplicated way.
We can work together to tune in to your body's intuitive wisdom about hunger, fullness, movement, and rest.
No to food rules, lists of “good” and “bad” foods, and calorie counting.
Yes to healing your messed up relationship with food, rewriting your internal dialogue, and feeling amazing in your body.
You deserve to be a normal eater. You deserve to eat a variety of foods. You deserve to eat dessert or carbs or sugar. You deserve the mental relief of not restricting your eating.
Let’s change your story together.
During our sessions, you’ll learn:
How to deeply tune in to your body’s cues so you can understand what it’s telling you that it needs.
Specific ways to create new expectations for the types of food you eat and the frequency of your meals and snacks.
How your upbringing shaped your attitudes about food...and how to overcome those long-held beliefs.
When you’re having pleasurable experiences, it’s always worth it.
The most fulfilling part of my job is helping women realize the freedom that comes with healing their relationship with food. With my help, you will set and achieve transformative goals that specifically target the thoughts, feelings, and behaviors associated with the foods you eat and the way you perceive your body image.
Let’s do this.
You can: Incorporate all foods - nothing is off limits.
You can: Break free from dieting FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE.
You can: Feel awesome in your body.
You can: Ditch the scale.
You can: Unlearn habits that have been with you since you were little.
Let me explain my why.
I was born and raised in Crown Heights, Brooklyn to a Hasidic family and community. Even though my body was always covered and there was never talk of dieting in our home, I would sneak-buy magazines because I was curious about what was going on in the outside world. When I saw girls in Seventeen magazine with thin bodies, muscular arms and six packs I KNEW I wanted to be just like them. I equated their bodies to freedom, beauty, power and expression and I craved that so badly.
When I turned 19 my body started changing from a teenager’s body in to a young woman’s body so naturally, I tried my first diet and it went downhill from there. I lost a bunch of weight but eventually I wanted my cookies back because life isn’t as fun without those foods. I binged on them constantly and for the next six years I lost and gained hundreds of pounds while being totally disgusted with the way I looked and felt. I was sure it was a willpower thing but it turns out I was SO wrong.
Once I decided to throw in the towel with dieting, I discovered a more Intuitive approach to food and accepting my body exactly as it was. My life then opened up in a way that I had been craving all along. Of course, I started talking to other women and realized that this whole time we had something in common. We all struggle in some way with food and our bodies and I KNOW that no woman should live her life this way. It’s a waste of our energy! Now I serve and empower these women to heal their relationship with food through Intuitive Eating and body acceptance. It’s been 8 years of personal practice and 4 years of practicing on a professional level and I’ve never looked back.
I am a mother to a daughter named Rosey, and friends with some kick ass women. We are a family that is invested in healthy long term relationships with each other and others that involve respectful conflict and talking about everything under the sun. Love, pain, fear and discomfort. We invite it all.
I love hearing people’s life story. I believe that when we share our true stories with others it helps us feel safer in the world.
I KNOW that if we listen to each other, it will change the world.
I’m fashion obsessed and even if I’m home for the day I still dress up.
The most common joke about me is that I ask too many questions.
I live in Colorado and try to take solo hikes as much as possible. They help me get out of my head and in to my body.
