Do you identify with any of the following?
- You are sick and tired of obsessing about food, body weight, or body image.
- You are confused by all of the conflicting nutrition messages, and sometimes just don’t know what to eat anymore.
- You struggle with binge eating, restricting, purging, over-exercising or a combination.
- You looking for an alternative path to long term health that does not include counting calories, measuring food, logging weights, tracking points, etc.
- You interested in exploring Intuitive Eating but don’t know where to start.
- You have an eating disorder or disordered eating and are in need of nutrition guidance.
- You have negative thoughts about your body and food choices preventing you from living a fulfilling life.
If you identify with one or more of the statements above, I hear you. I have been down the same road of chronic dieting, extreme weight loss attempts, believing that I could not trust myself around food, and distorted relationship with food, exercise, and my body.
I have also pursued multiple approaches to “heal” myself from my obsessions with food and weight loss, from prescriptive meal planning to reckless abandonment of any and all eating structure. Nothing seemed to be working! I was still food obsessed, afraid of my food, and loathed my body. It was not until I learned that the answer to my problems was to trust my body.
If the concept of trusting your body sounds bizarre and down right crazy to you, you are not alone. This is a foreign concept to many, and it’s no surprise that at every turn of the page in a magazine, and every other commercial on the TV or radio is an advertisement promoting the idea that you cannot trust your body.
I am here to tell you that the messages you have been fed since probably early childhood are false – that you can trust your body, that you can trust yourself around all foods (yes, even those chips, cookies, brownies, etc), and that you can make peace with food and enjoy a life free of worrying about calorie counts, fat grams, and unrealistic weight loss goals.
Believe me – if I found food freedom, so can you!
