- 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, friend, I’ve been there. It can be exhausting, all consuming, and feel 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- something shaming yourself for will never fix.
I know you long for consistency and wish food didn’t take so much of your time and energy, but as long as you’re reliant on unrealistic and unsustainable food rules or diets, you’ll likely find yourself caught in a cycle of restriction, overeating, and shame. All the while thinking there’s something wrong with you, when in reality, it’s the approach you’re taking that’s the problem.
Diets, calculating macros, counting points, intermittent fasting, and eliminating food groups have lead us astray, causing more harm than good. Leading us to believe that our inability to stick to a rigid set of guidelines is a lack of willpower or a character defect. The truth is, food rules set the stage for an unhealthy relationship with food, can negatively impact health, and mess with us our metabolisms.
Eating should feel natural, not be a source of anxiety
I want you to experience what it feels like to eat foods that satisfy you, instead of force feeding yourself another salad, as you begin to shift your mindset from viewing food from a perspective of shame and guilt, to one of nourishment and enjoyment. All the while cultivating connection and a sense of confidence and trust in your body.
Together, we are going to explore your food beliefs, expectations, and behaviors to get you unstuck, while we create a new foundation for how to eat and navigate all food-related thoughts, situations, and emotions.
My clients tell me things like,
- “I can trust my body”
- “This is liberating”
- “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…
There are no quick fixes. This is a journey. Think of it as nutrition therapy, which means it takes patience, compassion, and a radical change in thinking. 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.
