Hi, I'm Naomi!

Hey, friend. I’m Naomi Katz (she/her), an Intuitive Eating, body image, & self-trust coach for grown-ups who already know what’s best for their own  bodies. I support and hold space for folks who are ready to reject diet culture so they can reclaim their autonomy and consent over their mind, body, and life.

 

While Intuitive Eating is absolutely about healing your relationship with food, learning how to honor your body’s wants and needs, and unlearning the toxic “truths” we’ve been told to believe by diet culture and the fitness industry, it’s about so much more, too.

 

Rather than zooming in on the nutrition side of Intuitive Eating, my clients and I focus much of our time and attention on the mindset piece—holding conversations about self-trust, body image, what they value in their everyday lives, how diet culture robs us of these things, and how to navigate the process of rejecting and unlearning.

Intuitive Eating is not a diet—but it's common to step into it still thinking or hoping that you can achieve certain physique or weight-loss goals. The reality is, when we’ve spent our entire lives manipulating our body size, we have no idea what our set point weight or natural body size is. We’ve probably never seen it. This can be a tough thing to grasp. But some bodies are simply supposed to be larger than other bodies.

 

Again, it’s not your fault if you hope for these things, and it’s also ok if realizing that your body is changing makes you feel some feelings. Unlearning a lifetime of body beliefs is uncomfortable—which is why I’m here to acknowledge and validate all of the feelings and experiences that come up for you as you navigate this new way of thinking, living, and being in your mind and body.

 

During our time together, whether it be 1:1 coaching, group coaching, or a Mindset Reset call, I trust you as the one and only expert in your body. Your lived experiences are your truth, and I will never tell you otherwise. I like to consider us a team, but you're always the boss. Any guidance, suggestions, and advice I provide are yours to take or leave. Everyone's Intuitive Eating journey will look and feel different—including yours! There's no one-size-fits-all approach to this work.

 

As your coach, I promise to hold a brave space for you to come as you are and honor yourself and the process for what it is—approaching any discomfort and other big feelings from a place of curiosity, kindness, and self-compassion. 

 

To support you along this journey is not something I take lightly, and I’d be honored to be your partner in this work.

My Values

Autonomy & consent. These two things are non-negotiables, not only in the coaching environment, but also in your everyday life. Everyone has the absolute right to autonomy over their own bodies. Diet culture robs us of our autonomy and our consent, because we’re handing off power, control, and expertise in our bodies to someone/something else, rather than listening to what our mind & body actually wants and needs from us. Dismantling diet culture is a step toward reclaiming our autonomy and consent over ourselves.

“Personal responsibility” is bullshit. Health is not a personal responsibility—it’s a product of systems of white supremacy, patriarchy, and capitalism. To perpetuate the narrative that everyone is solely responsible for their own health and well-being, without any outside factors being of influence, is bypassing people’s level of privilege, lived experiences, and trauma.

We’re a team, but you’re the boss. As your coach, I’m here to support and hold space for you through the mindset work we’ll be focusing on surrounding Intuitive Eating, body image, and self-trust—offering gentle guidance, advice, and suggestions along the way. But ultimately, YOU are the expert in yourself. I want you to honor your own wants, needs, and life, whether or not the suggestions I provide fit into that.
