Sarah Rzemieniak

Working as an eating disorder recovery coach feels like such a gift after years of struggle and at last recovery from my own eating disorder. I feel extremely grateful to be able to do this work today.
I made the career transition from working as a dietitian to working as an eating disorder recovery coach after realizing that it was the coaching aspect of the dietetics work that I loved the most and wanted to focus all my attention on.

Dr. Dorie McCubbrey

Believing that she had to be “thin to fit in,” Dorie went on her first diet when she was in the 6th Grade – and joined two-thirds of girls who are estimated to be on their first diet by their 10th birthday. At first she received compliments for her weight loss, but by age 11 she had developed anorexia.

Threatened to be “tube-fed” if she didn’t eat more, she restored enough weight so her friends and family wouldn’t worry. Although she “looked fine,” she continued to struggle with body image issues and fluctuated between dieting and binge eating throughout Middle School and High School. In College, she was a varsity athlete, and ultimately developed bulimia, like many of her teammates. In Graduate School, Dorie’s restrictive eating, binge eating and purging worsened – with weight fluctuations from anorexic lows to highs of obesity. In her late 20’s, Dorie sought treatment for her eating disorders, and finally found freedom from these behaviors after more than 15 years of misery. She wondered, “What would have happened if I never went on that first diet?”

Cindy Spratt

When I was young, I loved being in the kitchen, food was yummy and fun: it meant freedom and security. As a pre-teen, the art of cooking evolved into an impassioned skill, as I gained a job with a catering company and went on to cook and serve food for many years.
As a teenager, my relationship with food morphed into something different.

I spent a decade as a competitive gymnast, but when the time came to quit, the drastic drop in exercise along with puberty, catty change-rooms, and gossipy high-school hallways had their way with my once loving, and rather normal, relationship with food.
From my teens well into my twenties, my food journey became my largest struggle. I found myself in the throes of binging and purging, starving, dieting, over-exercising, and popping pills. You name it, I did it. I was at complete loss and the loneliness was unbearable.

Erin Grumley

Being around family can be stressful and exhausting. Whether you are worried about being gendered correctly or if you are anxious about them hovering over you to make sure you are eating, it can take a toll on you.
But it isn’t just family. Interacting with the world can be just as exhausting.

The Top Eating Disorder Coaches eating disorder coaches

Thoughts about food can be intrusive and can take away from being engaged in conversation with friends or coworkers. Going shopping, going to the grocery store, or going to the gym can all cause your eating disorder brain to fire on all four cylinders. Or, as somebody who identifies as gender expansive, it could mean correcting people, educating people, or just deciding it isn’t worth the battle more often than you would like.

What do you do differently or how is your coaching different from others?

Most eating disorder programs have a path or method for people to follow – but no path has ever worked for everyone. I help people rebuild trust in themselves. Through a process of helping them notice their joy and pleasure, I empower my clients to connect with their own bodies and intuition so that they can create and define their own path to healing. I offer one of the only programs that focus on healing the relationship with the body and not just the relationship to food and behaviors.

What according to you has been the single most important thing that has contributed to your success as a coach?

The single most important thing that has contributed to my success as a coach is my unyielding belief that every individual already has the answers they seek inside them. This is supported by my own journey of healing where I learned how to trust myself even when I was going against the crowd. I gained further tools for helping people to connect with their own knowledge through the study of yoga, meditation, somatic expressive therapy, and energy healing.
