You struggle with all-or-nothing tendencies (aka you’re often either “on” or “off” the wagon - no in between)
Spend much of the day worrying about what you ate (or didn’t eat) or what your body looks like.
You want to break free of the diet-binge-guilt cycle, but the idea is scary.
You eat on autopilot and can't seem to stop when full.
You're ready to remove the guilt and shame and enjoy food.
You don't eat the foods you love, because you’re afraid it will be hard to stop.
You're done trying the next best diet, cleanse, or trend and want to find a normal, everyday way to eat.
I get it.
As a certified intuitive eating counselor, health behavior coach, and body image specialist I have worked with hundred of people to help them cultivate a healthy relationship with food, movement, and their bodies.
I know that forgoing dieting and the diet mentality is not an easy task. We live in a messed up , oppressive diet culture where every day your are inundate with messages about dieting, weight loss, and all that is "wrong" with your body.
Strive to adhere to some unattainable perfect vision of what your body and life ‘should’ look like.
Have spent years trying to "fix" your eating habits, your body, or yourself - but nothing seems to work.

Hi there, I'm Kelley
My approach is highly individualized and includes work in intuitive eating, mindfulness, self-compassion, self-care, natural movement, Pilates, the principles of Health at Every Size (HAES), and psychology including several therapeutic modalities such as MI, and CBT.

What makes the intuitive process for eating
ABOUT THE PROGRAM
Mental: Unlearning Diet Mentality
Discover the truth about dieting, including: the roots of diet culture, why dieting & restriction does more physiological & psychological harm than good and the real reason you’re so obsessed with health & what your body looks like to begin with.
Learn How to Listen to Your Hunger Cues
Are you a clock eater? Feel like you can only eat at set meal times, and not eat past 8pm? This session will teach you how to listen to your unique hunger and fullness cues, and why honoring them will actually make you obsess less about food.
Make Peace With Your “Scary Foods”
Is there a food you’re terrified to be in the same room with? The chips, chocolate or ice cream? This session, you’ll learn why you feel so out of control when around these foods and how to both introduce them into your life and enjoy them free of guilt.
Overcoming Barriers: Importance Of A Body-Positive Enviornment
Who you choose to surround yourself with day in and day out will play a part in your healing journey. We'll explore opportuities to create a living space and social enviornments that will compliment your human biology and natural tendencies to respond to a welcoming and neutural atmosphere.

You can’t hate yourself into a version of yourself that you love. This session, we’ll explore non-fluff strategies to work towards body neutrality and body respect and discover what enjoyable, intuitive movement looks like for you.

Challenge the Food Police, and Media Influencers
Everywhere you turn, especially in a social media saturated world, you will find more and more diet rules. That you are being “good” if you eat a salad and “bad” if you eat a cookie. Learn to shout a resounding “no” to the Food Police – that voice inside your head that holds on to any diet rules and judges you in every food choice you make, that likes to drive the dieting cycle with guilt and shame.
Honor Your Feelings Without Using Foods
Learning to cope with emotions without food is part of becoming an intuitive eater and knowing to differentiate between physical and emotional needs. In this session you will uncover the root cause of emotional eating, how emotional eating presents itself, triggers of emotional eating and how to cope, while discovering satisfication.
Learn how to welcome nutrition back into your life without falling down the diet rabbit hole again. You will walk away knowing how to make intentional food decisions that honour your health and your happiness.
We’ll start with a full assessment where we’ll discuss your goals and explore your relationship with food, movement, and body image throughout your life, including your diet history, current eating behaviors, and more.
These 35-mintue video or in-person sessions generally take place every week, or *45-minute sessions every other week may be an option. (I coach people worldwide online, or in-person at Kelley Cady Studio in Keene NH.) We will work collaboratively together as you dig deep into the roots of your thoughts, feelings, and beliefs about food and your body. (My clients tell us that these sessions feel similar to therapy, but with a focus on your relationship with food, movement, and your body.)
Hand-selected for you based upon your needs and preferred learning style. After each session, you’ll get an email recap including notes from that days call along with tools to help implement our work between sessions.
I will review your Online Intuitive Eating Journal weekly and provide feedback and support in between sessions, even if it's a week that you don't have a coaching session.
You’ll have support and guidance from me between sessions with unlimited email access for any questions or concerns that come up (or if you just need a place to vent).

If you want to break free from the cycle of dieting and learn to eat food like it’s just food – finding balance and making peace with food (and exercise).If you are exhausted and ready to ditch diets, stricked meal plans, counting calories, carbs, points, or macros, it's for you.
If you're looking for a weight loss approach. Intuitive Eating is not for the purpose of weight loss. If a health professional or coach is offering you Intuitive Eating for the purpose of weight loss–run away. Fast.
If you want to get ripped and beach-body-ready. This process isn’t about how you look. It’s about long-term, sustainable health, and giving your body the nourishment and movement it needs to work at its best.
We are born natural intuitive eaters. Babies cry, they eat, they stop until they’re hungry again. Kids innately balance out their food intake, eating when they’re hungry and stopping once they feel full. As we grow older and rules and restrictions are set around food, we lose our inner intuitive eater. We learn to finish everything on our plate. We learn that dessert is a reward, or can be taken away if we misbehave.
Intuitive eating is a non-diet approach to wellness that helps you break the cycle of dieting, heal your relationship with food, and get back in touch with the intuitive eater inside of you. Intuitive eating is not a diet. It’s a way to learn to eat outside of the diet mentality, with a focus on using your own internal hunger, fullness, and satisfaction cues to guide eating choices. But it’s much more than just the ‘hunger-fullness diet’ – we will explore your food beliefs, behaviors, and self-talk while delving deep into what food means to youIf you are exhausted and ready to ditch diets, stricked meal plans, counting calories, carbs, points, or macros, it's for you.
Great news: is not a diet! DIets don't work. 90 to 95 percent of diets fail, yet you blame yourself, not the diet. In reality, it’s the process of dieting that is the problem. Not only do diets not work – you’re either “on” them or “off” them, right? – they’re the root of many of your problems. Dieting increases your risk of gaining even more weight than you lost.
Intuitive eating is different. It helps you break free from the cycle of dieting and learn how to make peace with all foods, movement, and your body.
While many of our clients are not happy in their bodies and would like to lose weight, this is not the focus or goal of our sessions. Weight loss must be put on the back burner as you go through the Intuitive Eating process. If you are focused on losing weight, you’ll undermine the Intuitive Eating process. We will certainly talk about your desire to change your weight, and your feelings about your body, but you will not be weighing in and we will not be using weight as an indicator of success or progress.
Some people naturally lose weight during this process, and others don’t. If you have been eating for emotional reasons or not paying attention to your intuitive signals, or if you’ve gone through a lifestyle change that caused unnatural weight gain, it’s likely that you’re not at your natural healthy weight right now. As you go through the intuitive eating process and heal your body from the diet mentality, your weight will stabilize at the place it is meant to be.
It depends. Intuitive eating is the opposite of dieting. While dieting is easy at the beginning and gets harder (or impossible) as time goes on, intuitive eating is much tougher up front. It seems simple (eat when you’re hungry, stop when you’re full) but it’s more complicated. You have to undo all of the diet mentality and food rules in your head, get rid of your internal food police, and create new habits. It takes a lot of time and introspection. But while it’s hard at first, once eating normally becomes actually normal, you’ll reach a place of eating and caring for yourself intuitively – for life.
Life does not have a pause button. There’s never going to be a period time where things are suddenly easier. Often we throw the baby out with the bathwater and if we can’t do it all the way, we don’t do anything. Intuitive eating is not about perfection – that’s the beauty of it! Many of my clients are busy professionals, moms with days that are non-stop, or people who travel constantly. When you work with me you’ll learn how to make changes – and maintain them – in the midst of your normal, busy, life. We take care of our families and others we love, so why not do something to take care of ourselves?
Healing your food and body issues is deep, brave, and oftentimes scary work. When you’ve been inundated with dieting messages for years, it takes time to rid your mind of this dieting mentality and work through your food issues. We offer package-based options so that we have enough time to spend together to be able to work through these issues.
There are two ways: 1) Schedule a free consultation call– we’ll make sure we are a good fit to work together and help you figure out which package option is best suited to your needs. 2) If you know which package you’d like to start with, you can use the link here to purchase and get started. Once you submit your payment info, you’ll immediately get a scheduling link to book your first appointment.
This is a very normal concern. It’s important to recognize that it is the dieting mentality that causes overeating and binging. Once you learn to make peace with all foods – and your body knows you can have these foods whenever you want – you’ll be able to truly listen to your body’s feelings of hunger, fullness and satisfaction.
