About The Mind-Full Clinic

I am Jiordana Saade, holistic nutritionist, hypnotherapist, PODCASTER, and founder of The Mind-Full Clinc.

I am a clinical nutritionist and hypnotist with a degree in behavioural psychology. I am considered a top leading expert in eating behaviour and Tedx speaker for developing a healthy relationship to food.

I became interested psychology because I grew up with childhood obesity and struggled with body image issues, multiple eating disorders, substance abuse and mental health conditions.

As I became more interested in my body, I began to understand how changing my diet had a profound influence on my overall mood, and my mental health disorders simply vanished. It was here that I questioned the gut/brain connection and decided to enroll at the Institute of Holistic Nutrition, where I graduated as Valedictorian with first class honors.

Upon graduation I was hired to work as the nutritionist at an obesity medicine clinic in Oakville, where I had the opportunity to work alongside Dr. Mohammed Abrahim.

While working in the clinic it became apparent to me that there is a large population of people that you cannot help with diet alone. Most people know an apple is healthier than a chocolate bar, but some still choose the chocolate bar anyways. At this point I still struggled with disorders like orthorexia, and continued to lose and regain the same 100lbs. As time went on, I was unable to adhere to restrictive diets, and I became tired of punishing myself at the gym. The weight began to pile back on and I found myself back to where I started, overweight and unhappy.

For some individuals, knowing what to do, isn’t enough.

I wanted to dig deeper and understand the interconnections between our intentions and our behavior. This is why I went back to school to study the nervous system and how psychology impacts human behaviour and the desire to self sabotage. I learned how limiting beliefs and years of restrictive dieting had actually led to a life sentence of obesity.

When I recovered my relationship to food I began to see a life beyond meal plans and calorie counting. I was able to address my low self-worth, stop trying to control my diet and develop a health narrative around what I was eating— and a crazy thing happened.. the excess weight stabilized and came off all on its own.






I truly believe that everyone has the opportunity to find the truest healthiest version of themselves, without having to give up their favourite foods.

The truth is, your body wants to be healthy, if the body is holding on to excess weight is it trying to communicate that there are imbalances in both the body and the mind.
