Kerstin・Founder of The Reluctant Cook

Kerstin Martin is a successful Squarespace Web Designer & Authorized Trainer, a passion she found late in life after spending decades in corporate jobs in the airline, I.T., finance and education industries. 

On The Reluctant Cook she blogs about the psychology of obesity and dieting, her own weight struggles and her journey towards Intuitive Eating and better health. Her reluctant love of cooking takes center-stage as Kerstin unravels decades of last-supper mentality, guilt and resistance, while fostering emotional resilience and healing.
