Paczosa

Adrien Paczosa is a Registered and Licensed Dietitian practicing in Austin, Texas and the surrounding counties.

She is the founder of I Live Well Nutrition and is also the founder of Fearless Practitioners, a business that offers training to dietitians and wellness professionals.

Adrien is a Certified Eating Disorders Registered Dietitian (CEDRD). She began her path towards nutrition by falling down. She has been dancing since age two and in college was a Kilgore College Rangerette. During a practice she took a fall and broke her foot, and that sparked the ideas of needing a new direction in her life. After graduating in 2003 from the University of Illinois – Chicago with a bachelor of science degree in Human Nutrition, Adrien began her career as a staff dietitian at hospital in downtown Chicago.

In 2006, Adrien returned to Texas to be close to family, friends, and warmer weather! She opened her private practice, I Live Well Nutritional Therapy in 2007 and it has only continued to grow.

I am an RD who has been in practice for 13 years. I am passionate about helping people form and maintain a healthy relationship to food when addressing their health and nutrition challenges.  I especially love working with individuals on intuitive eating, women's health issues such as PCOS and prenatal nutrition, disordered eating, and eating disorders. My practice style can be described as nonjudgmental and compassionate. Outside of being a dietitian, I have a strong passion for travel and trying new experiences! I also love spending time with my husband and two dogs!

Hill

Libby graduated from UT Austin with a degree in human biology and went to work in clinical trial research, which quickly taught her that my passion is in prevention and counseling toward therapeutic lifestyle changes. Libby returned to my alma mater to study nutrition and completed my dietetic internship at the UT Coordinated Program in Dietetics.

 

As a former collegiate athlete and certified personal trainer, she’s passionate about nutrition counseling for athletes suffering from eating disorders. She also has a special interest in helping individuals with medical conditions or allergies that limit their diets navigate the kitchen and promote quality of life. She strives to be the most inclusive practitioner possible and provide a safe space for people of all genders and gender identities, races, religions, and sexual orientations.

 

In her spare time, Libby wears many hats! As a former Miss Earth USA, she uses my pageant title to organize coastal restoration projects and promote sustainable food systems. She loves to develop and cook what she call “planet-based” meals, which use ethically sourced, sustainable ingredients to promote the health of the environment and (coincidentally) the body!

 

When the workday ends, you’ll likely catch Libby hiking, wakesurfing, volunteering for a veteran non-profit, modeling for size-inclusive brands, or loving on her rescue cat, Tubbs, who thinks he is a dog.

Binge Eating

What is Binge Eating Disorder?

Binge Eating Disorder (BED) is a type of eating disorder that is characterized by frequent episodes of eating large quantities of food over short periods of time - to the point of feeling ill. Binge Eating Disorder affects an estimated 1-5% of the population, making it three times as prevalent as anorexia and bulimia combined. 

Binge Eating Disorder Signs and Symptoms 

Binge eating disorder is often associated with symptoms of depression. There are several signs that someone might be battling with BED, including insisting on eating alone, overeating when not hungry, or eating until uncomfortably full. 

Episodes of binge eating are usually followed by feelings of guilt or shame, and often lead to more serious health complications. Full list of symptoms: 

  • Consuming an unusually large amount of food in a relatively short time
  • Feeling out of control with food
  • Eating more quickly than usual
  • Consuming large quantities of food while not feeling hungry
  • Eating until feeling uncomfortable and overly full
  • Having feelings of sadness, guilt, or disgust after eating
  • Hiding or being secretive about eating behaviors
  • Feeling embarrassed about the amount of food consumed
  • Experiencing sadness with regard to body or weight
  • Feeling depressed, ashamed, guilty or disgusted about your eating

Causes of Binge Eating Disorder

Binge eating disorder (BED) is caused by a complex combination of genetic, psychological and cultural factors. Family history, long term dieting, and a disrupted relationship with food may increase the risk of binge eating disorder. Binge eating disorder sufferers often struggle with co-occurring mood and anxiety disorders, have experienced some kind of trauma, or struggle to navigate developmental milestones and life changes. The larger cultural narrative around dieting, binge eating and obesity is a prominent factor influencing the development of binge eating disorder. This rhetoric fosters shame and embarrassment for individuals struggling with BED, many of whom are chronic dieters without weight loss success.

Binge Eating Disorder Health Risks

There are serious health risks associated with binge eating disorder (BED), including: Cardiovascular disease, Type II diabetes, Metabolic Syndrome as well as Sleep Disorders, GI Disorders, Pain Disorders, Menstrual Dysfunction and Pregnancy Complications. That’s why it’s important to recognize that BED is a mental health illness, not a matter of trying to exercise more self-control.

Binge Eating Disorder Treatment

The specialized binge eating disorder treatment team at Nourish will work with you to understand biological, psychological and social contributors to your illness.

First and foremost, intervention at a behavioral level is imperative to stop disordered eating. Secondly, your treatment team will seek to understand the psychological issues that contribute to your disordered eating behavior.

In addition to the psychological contributors to the illness, it is important to identify any co-occurring illnesses you may have, such as depression, anxiety, trauma or substance abuse. At Nourish, we believe in treating the illness, not just the resulting weight gain. By focusing first on remedying the disordered eating, we work with our patients to find solutions to the underlying issues first and the weight second.
