Obesity Specialist Uses Weight Loss Psychology to Help People Overcome Food Addiction


QUEENSLAND, Australia May 2012 – Food addiction starts off with something as simple as eating too much sugar, then evolves into uncontrollable eating habits such as emotional eating, binge eating and yo-yo dieting. In Australia this is a much more common problem than is widely recognised and has caught the attention of professionals in modern and alternative medicine as well as the establishment of organisations such as Food Addicts Anonymous who help people to fight food addiction.

Food addiction and obesity specialist Kellee Waters, managing director of Fit Minds & Bodies, recently launched a specialised Food Addiction and Obesity Clinic where she uses weight loss psychology to help ordinary people deal with emotional eating and other weight and food issues.

Kellee says, “My specialisation is in food addiction such as emotional eating, binge eating, yo-yo dieting and weight issues including morbid to super obesity and weight loss surgery. I also help with family and relationship issues which are often linked to poor self image and self esteem, and show my patients how abuse or trauma impacts addiction, emotional eating, and weight loss.”

“I take a neuro-bio-psycho-social approach to all issues,” explains Kellee. “I understand the biochemistry and neurochemistry of the body and brain, and how this interacts with food and fat, causing specific characteristics of how someone thinks, feels and behaves. I look at the present and past as well as conscious and unconscious patterns. Each of these factors impacts the person and their current weight situation.”

Kellee has worked passionately to provide a holistic approach to weight loss business since 2004. She is a qualified psychologist, hypnotherapist, personal trainer, pre-diabetes educator and type 2 diabetes support professional. Kellee has unique insider knowledge as she has personally experienced childhood and adulthood obesity, emotional eating and food addiction herself. She now combines her personal experience and professional training to help others overcome their weight and food issues.
