Beyond Nutrition: Unraveling Your Food Story with Ian Rubin
Show Notes

In this insightful episode of The Modern Vital Podcast, Dr. Ben Reebs delves deep into the nuanced relationship between humans and food with guest expert, Ian Rubin. Ian, a wellness coach and founder of Food Story Coaching, introduces the concept of "food story", emphasizing how our relationship with food is driven by both internal and external influences. 

This dynamic relationship isn't solely about nutritional values but deeply rooted in our cultural, emotional, and psychosocial interactions with food. Ian highlights that often, individuals act on their food choices unconsciously, driven by the needs of their story rather than rational thought. While many people can access information about nutritious diets and health advice, the disconnect arises when there is a lack of understanding or confrontation of one's personal food story. 

Dr. Reebs and Ian discuss the challenges faced by patients who get overwhelmed by strict diets and the need for practitioners to recognize the importance of addressing the emotional and cultural ties patients have to food.
