Case Study Thomas_Final

>> Hi. Thanks for joining me on this journey as we continue to explore the psychology of emotional eating. As we explained in the first module, we're going to start off each module with a brief case study. These case studies will help you apply the material to real-life situations. Every week, we'll put up a post in the Facebook group to discuss the case study, so be on the lookout for that. This week, meet our second case study Thomas. Thomas is a 56-year-old male whose main health concern is that no matter how hard he exercises or tries to adhere to a strict diet, he can't seem to get the results he wants. Thomas feels like he has to work harder than he ever did before to feel good about himself, and he wants some guidance and ideas for what might help him to feel better and reach his physical goals. In going over Thomas's Health History, you learn that he divorced his first wife and has recently married another woman. Thomas's father, who is no longer alive, was in the army and has instilled in Thomas and his younger brother the importance of personal discipline. His mother suffers from Alzheimer's and lives in an assisted living facility nearby. Thomas shares that he has been very fitness-focused his entire life. He is a former high school and college wrestler. Currently, he works as an air traffic controller which he admits is a very stressful job and one that requires him to be on at all times. Thomas is quite stoic and seems somewhat detached as he talks in great detail about his daily food intake and long list of supplements. He says that he has a pretty regimented diet and doesn't eat any of the comfort foods he ate growing up. He also says that he drinks a lot of coffee throughout the day but that he doesn't need much sleep and usually gets about four to five hours. We'll continue to learn more about Thomas throughout the course and we'll return to him in a few weeks. After you finish Module 2, we encourage you to return to this case study and try applying some of the material. Where might you, as an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, start with Thomas, keeping emotional eating in mind? What high-mileage questions might you ask to learn more about his relationship with food and how it relates to other areas of his life? What areas of his Circle of Life might be less present right now? How might you start to help him explore his goals in meaningful ways? Thanks for joining me. Looking forward to seeing you again real soon.
