ARE YOU READY TO REPAIR YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH FOOD?

INTUITIVE EATING, NON-DIET NUTRITION AND THE HEALTH AT EVERY SIZE APPROACH

Are you ready to trust your body, quit obsessing about food, and finally let go of dieting? My work as a registered nutritionist is centred on a non-diet, weight-inclusive approach to your health and happiness. If you've been struggling for years with your relationship with food and movement, I’m here to remind you that it is possible to make peace with food, to find ease and joy once again when it comes to eating. As a certified intuitive eating counsellor, I can help you gently return to your body’s innate wisdom relating to hunger, fullness, and satisfaction. Together, we’ll work towards rejecting strict rules and beliefs you may have about food, relearn how to eat according to your body’s cues around hunger and satisfaction, uncover how to move and care for your body outside of what diet culture prescribes and regain a life free from dieting.

WHY DIETING STEALS YOUR TIME, HEADSPACE AND ANY MEANINGFUL PURSUIT OF HEALTH AND HAPPINESS

Dieting has been proven time and again to be a flawed approach to health because it centres on deprivation and restriction. The side effects of deprivation and restriction lead to feeling out of control around food. Many clients describe it like they 'can't be trusted around food' and if they start, they 'won't stop'. This pendulum swing is incredibly common for dieters and a sign that your body is behaving in a healthy way - it is trying to get food and nutrients at all costs, as it likely feels threatened that the deprivation and restrictions will continue for some time. And your body will do what it takes to compensate for that. Slowed metabolism, intense cravings from hormonal signalling and a compulsion to eat past comfortable fullness when the chance arises are your body's way of trying to end the restriction and deprivation you are putting it through. 'Yo-yo dieting' is often used as a way to describe this cycle of weight loss and weight gain and can lead to intense feelings of shame and failure and low-self-esteem. None of this is in any way health-promoting and the reason why non-diet nutritionists and dietitians have moved away from creating food plans, promoting weight loss or enabling your restriction and deprivation. Diets don't work. And yet as a society we obsess over shrinking our bodies and see the moral value in 'willpower' and 'wanting it badly enough'. This toxicity is everywhere. But not here
