Your relationship with food is about to change for good.

Have you searched most of your life for the secret formula to find peace with food? Are you exhausted by the search? Tired of trying to get your thinking around food “right?” Then, you’re in the right place. Transformational Eating™ is about turning inward and learning how to be kinder to yourself with Self-Compassion. Being compassionate and tender with yourself can heal your lifelong struggle with food, and it’s evidence-based. 

Hundreds of studies show that self-compassion heals disordered & emotional eating.


Now there is a class for it.

Are you ready to stop the exhaustion cycle your eating keeps you trapped in?

What exactly is Self-Compassion? It’s extending kindness to any part of yourself that is hurting. Kindness can be extended to parts of yourself that might be upset, confused, or hopeless about food and eating, and it’s an effective way to heal.

I’ve developed a program that will take you step-by-step to change your relationship with food through kindness, not restriction or fixing.

“It’s not about the food. It’s about the relationship to the part ofyourself that makes decisions about food.”

I’m Jessica Flanigan Brown – an experienced guide. 

 I believe the most profound healing humans do is to remember they are capable and lovable. I wrote a book about that called The Loving Diet. I help others trust that process and learn practical, compassion-based solutions beyond what happens in a therapist’s office. How? We can learn to soothe our feelings of pain through self-compassion, which changes our mental-emotional state, body chemistry and heals our inner-child. In thousands of studies, self-compassion has been shown to be an effective self-healing tool, improving body image, emotional resilience, immune system function and healing shame.

I’m a Stanford-trained compassion teacher, clinical nutritionist, spiritual coach, and noetic field practitioner. My professional practice is as an eating disorder coach with a specialty in self-compassion.


Love is the medicine, your heart is the pharmacy.

Testimonials about Transformational Eating….

I felt like I started to break down the walls protecting my heart despite years and years of therapy.


Today I have the tools to manage my relationship with food that I learned in Transformational Eating, and the hamster wheel of negative self-talk has left the building.


Before I took Jessica’s course, I was completely hopeless that I would overcome my eating disorder. I had tried everything… I’m coming up on two months of not practicing the eating disorder, and for the first time in years. 


Jessica provided a different way of viewing my disease… by asking me to consider that RA was a gift, an opportunity to fulfill my potential. At the time, it sounded ridiculous, but it opened up a mindset of having grace with myself… Thank you for helping me heal.


My healing journey felt stalled like I was hitting a ceiling, and that ceiling was way too low… And, the class proved to be the balm I needed.  It was actually Transformational.
