- Find yourself obsessing over every bite you take?
- Are you overwhelmed by all the conflicting messages about what to eat?
- Do you feel out of control around food?
- Maybe you even consider yourself an emotional eater or food addict?
- Would you describe yourself as all or nothing? One cookie and there goes your whole day?
I get it, I’ve been there. It’s exhausting, all consuming, and isolating. Not only is there external pressure telling us what, when, how to eat, and what we’re “supposed” to look like, but for many, our struggles with food may have actually become our coping mechanism to get through life; sadly, leading many to feel misplaced shame and guilt.
Diets, calculating macros, counting points, intermittent fasting, and eliminating food groups cause more harm than good, keeping us stuck in our patterns or cycles of struggle. This leads us to believe that our inability to stick to a rigid set of guidelines is a lack of willpower or a character defect- not true. Food rules set the stage for an unhealthy relationship with food, they negatively impact health, drain our energy, and harm our mental and emotional health.
But it doesn’t have to be that way
I want you to experience what it feels like to eat foods that satisfy you in amounts that align with your needs and wants. No more force feeding yourself another salad or denying yourself food when you’re hungry. When our brains and bodies are satisfied, we’re more free to be present in life, work, and our relationships.
I want you to learn how to shift your mindset from viewing food from a perspective of “good” or “bad,” to one of nourishment and enjoyment, while cultivating trust in and connection to your body.
I want you to feel empowered and in control of your food choices, being able to confidently navigating all food-related thoughts, situations, and emotions.
My clients tell me things like,
- “I have more energy”
- “I feel liberated”
- “Food doesn’t control me anymore”
- “I stopped bingeing”
- “I feel so much better now that I’m not longer restricting”
- “I don’t feel like a food addict anymore”
- “I’m more in control and confident about my food choices”
- “I no longer obsess over what I ate”
Here’s the catch…
This is a journey, there are no quick fixes. Think of it as nutrition therapy. This work is gentle and curious. It observes, it does not judge. It explores and experiments. It meets you where you are.
Just as you wouldn’t expect to go to therapy one time to work through years of anxiety, when it comes to your relationship with food and your body it’s no different.
