More Than Food - Learn How Changing Your Lifestyle Can Defeat Your Food Struggles Get eBook!

Because you are more than a body with symptoms or a few extra pounds – integrate exercise, nutrition and eating psychology to heal you inside and out.

Sometimes changing your diet is all you need. Oftentimes, it isn’t.

Did you know that 98% of people going on a weight loss diet gain the weight back within 1 to 2 years?

Every year more of us become depressed, anxious and exhausted.
Our numbers grow in digestive disorders, diabetes, heart disease, cancer and autoimmune conditions that we barely know how to name.

It’s estimated that over two thirds of adults have a negative body image.
These numbers are rising.

We’ve been told that exercising more and eat better – or less – will solve all of our problems.

The truth? This approach is ineffective and outdated.
And I don’t want you to add up to the above statistics.

Your health and vitality are the product of a synergy that’s infinitely more complex than a bunch of calories thrown together, or of mustering your willpower.

They’re made of your unique biology, your genes, lifestyle, past history, your thoughts and your emotions.

But more than that, your relationship with food is intimate, personal and emotional.
And so is your relationship with your body.

I’m Catarina Catarino, Pilates, Tai Chi and Qigong teacher, Transformational Nutrition and eating Psychology coach.
16 years in the wellness industry, 2 decades struggling with food disorders and alcohol addictions, IBS, disabling back pain and severe acne gave me an in-depth understanding of the effects our mental and emotional state have on health, mood and weight.

I’ve got the study and the creds, but my work is delivered from a place of real life experience.

What is possible for you

Reclaiming your health, weight and vitality with an integrative approach that acknowledges you as a whole – mind, body and soul.

A method that recognizes the role of nutrition, movement and emotions in healing disease, fatigue, weight challenges, anxiety and depression.

More than willpower, accurate information, adequate tools and regular support will help you restore your body and your confidence.

My approach is integrative and unconventional. My style has soul and down to earth practicality.
That said, if you’re the kind of person looking for support that addresses you and your health from all corners, pull a chair and grab a cuppa. You’re at home.

We tend to reduce emotions to “stuff of the brain”. And yes, emotions are triggered and mediated by chemicals and hormones, but the question we MUST be asking is, what triggers and regulates these chemicals, these hormones in the first place?
