Laura does a great job of really helping you delve deep to understand the emotional/psychological issues that come into play with food choices/issues. She is not only thorough, but approaches her patients in a non-judgmental, compassionate and caring way that allows you to explore your issues in a safe and constructive space. She also helps you put together a game plan to achieve the goals you seek. I highly recommend seeing Laura if you feel stuck and want to improve your relationship with food and/or health.

About me

Laura B. Folkes is a Certified Holistic Health Coach and holds a certification from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN). She has supported over 70 clients who know what they should be eating but have a hard time sticking to it by helping them identify the familiar patterns keeping them stuck so they can radically transform their relationship with food.

Laura is a facilitator of the research-based Truce with Food® process, which helps clients achieve sustainable results by getting to the bottom of why they fall off track and aren’t able to remain consistent.

After successfully losing 60 pounds and working through her own emotional relationship with food, Laura’s mission became helping others get to the bottom of their self-sabotaging patterns.

Laura coaches clients one-on-one, in small groups, runs workshops, speaks at summits and conferences, and has been featured in Voyage Chicago.

What You Can Expect On Your First Visit

Each program starts with a 40-minute Curiosity Call. This call is free of shame, guilt and judgment. You’ll fill me in on your challenges with your relationship with food and will have a safe space to talk about what’s been swirling around in your mind. Together, we’ll decide which program is right for you so you can finally get to the bottom of why you’re not able to consistently stay on track. (There’s absolutely no charge for your first chat.)

My Inspiration

I battled my weight and food since around the age of 12. Even though I eventually lost 60 pounds and was maintaining it, I was still stuck in a cycle of self-sabotage where I knew what I should eat but wasn't always consistent. Once I was able to get to the bottom of what was leading to that pattern, my relationship with food really shifted and I'm no longer triggered by it. Going through my own weight loss journey and healing my relationship with food is what led me to become a health coach.

Questions & Answers

Laura B. Folkes Answers
Because you are noticing it after the fact, do you feel like you're in automatic pilot and are not really thinking about what you're eating? If so, that is a sign there could be something emotional going on leading up to the meal. To help break the cycle of being in automatic pilot, you can try checking in to see if you're feeling any of the following (NAILED): Needy Anxious Inadequate Lonely Exposed Depleted Once you check in, if you're able to identify what's going on, you can ask yourself, 'what do I really need right now?' Just having the awareness of what's happening can provide a little relief so you can be more present around the food you're eating.
