This month's speaker is RAW Food phoenix Organizer, Steve Carlson. The topic is "Transform Your Eating, Transform Your Life!" He'll discuss the psychology of eating and its relationship to emotional well-being.
Steve Carlson is the long-time director of the Vegetarian Society of Phoenix, and he’s the also the head of that organization’s two local Internet social groups on Meetup.com, VEGphoenix and (more recently) RAW Food phoenix. He first became interested in healthier living in 1985, after reading the book "Everything You Wanted to Know about Nutrition But Were Afraid to Ask," and two years later he began a bumpy, tumultuous odyssey of trying to live a raw-food lifestyle.
His story includes overcoming a rather severe compulsive-eating disorder on his own, and along his path of personal growth he created a consistent, comprehensive, and life-enriching philosophy of psychology; which is now manifested in his unique and innovative Soar Like an Eagle emotional well-being program. He teaches individuals authentic self-empowerment, so they can effectively navigate through the psychological land mines and booby traps of life, to move in the direction of living the life of their dreams.
At this presentation, Steve will reveal the simple, yet transformative, psychological process that he implemented, after visiting the dentist 3 ½ years ago, with him complaining of excruciating tooth pain. He was told he needed an immediate root canal. However, Steve decided on a different solution, one that resulted in him immediately changing his eating habits. He will discuss the psychological basics of how he did it; how he easily, effortlessly, and without anxiety - or any temptations to revert back to his previous lifestyle - has sustained those habits to the present day.
