PublicationTruce with Food: A Heroine’s Journey(2013-05-01) Shapiro, Ali MThis Capstone is a theoretical analysis of the factors involved in what has become a pervasive yet ineffective North American food story, a battle with food. With the battle metaphor as a guide, more people are dieting and failing. This is escalating health-care costs and decreasing quality of life. By applying my Organizational Dynamics graduate studies program at the University of Pennsylvania with concentrations in Coaching and Change Management, this paper proposes a health-coaching model that is holistic, focusing on the physiology and emotional factors involved in changing the war with food mentality to one of a truce with food.
