The Science Behind Pally

Based on the best research in behavioral neuroscience and the science of food addiction


Your battle with food is actually a battle between two systems in your brain — survival impulses versus rational control. Even the smallest stressors can kick your survival impulse into high gear, making it feel impossible to say no to that bowl of M&M’s in the office. 

Research shows that it's possible to interrupt and modify brain patterns, strengthening rational control and reducing impulsive thinking. We can actually change the physiology of our brain using evidence-based practices.

Pally’s approach is based on 15+ years of research and client work by our Ph.D founder, Dr. Martha Katz, combining behavioral neuroscience, metabolic science, cognitive behavioral therapy, and meditative practices to build self-compassion, new habits and quiet the addictive mind.
