Dietitian Kim Shapira has developed six simple rules that will change your relationship with food forever. In This Is What You’re Really Hungry For, she breaks down the science to get your brain and your body on board; replaces fad diets that do not last with a sustainable method that encourages you to eat what you love; and empowers you to be the authority in your own body.
"Kim Shapira was a lifesaver for my husband… at the young age of 55 he was diagnosed with heart disease and we were at a loss for where to turn.. we reached out to Kim and she was kind, informative and very very knowledgeable.. In a short period of time she set us on a course for a long healthy life!! If you need help with anything nutrition related she is an amazing choice! Thanks Kim we are forever grateful!!"
“I learned to trust my body. It’s about the why not the what. I learned that a relationship with food is an actual relationship with our routines, rituals, history, assumptions — and our relationship with our bodies should be long, rich, not transactional. I learned what our relationship with food is a practice as important as mindfulness or meditation. I learned to replace guilt and shame with optimism and the belief I can change.”
“Working with Kim has transformed me. Yes, she has six rules for losing weight, but it is so much more than that. She has empowered me to modify my relationship with food. In less than six months I lost 20 pounds. It has been a year and I haven’t gained it back. Kim is the reason.”
“Kim Shapira has single-handedly changed my life. After seeing six different GI specialists at three different world-class medical centers over the course of seven years, dealing with a multitude of misdiagnoses and ER visits, I have been completely blown away by Kim’s treatment plan, which has left me feeling better than ever before.”
“With Kim’s guidance I was able to differentiate when my body was actually hungry and needed food from the times I was simply eating out of habit. Eating when I’m truly hungry has eradicated my mid-afternoon crash, reduced my need for a caffeine fix and upped my overall energy level throughout the day.”
“The KSM showed me how to live where I can eat everything in moderation and when I’m hungry. I truly believe that prior to learning the rules, I didn’t know what true hunger signals were. I would eat because of boredom and emotions. By learning to listen to my body and the signals it gives me I can now understand what I need and when I need it. The KSM gave me great tools at a young age to succeed in life.”
“For me KSM rules helped me to slow down and think about when I am going to eat and why. To check in with my body and mind and start understanding what is motivating my behaviors and habits and how to break them, particularly when it comes to sugar.”
“I was drawn to Kim’s system with specific rules of healthy living. It’s no-nonsense and makes perfect sense. In fact, it’s likely how our parents/grandparents approached eating. However, the layers of beliefs around eating throughout the years makes it a challenge. Kim cuts through the misconceptions by questioning the faulty thinking or confirming the healthy thinking.”
"I can't express enough how much your way of eating has impacted my life. From juggling eating disorders due to modeling from a young age, I must say even though my body isn't 100% where I would love for it to be, my mental headspace is the best it's been in years. My happiness was held hostage by my relationship with food on a daily basis, and it was honestly crippling."
