I teach chronic dieters how to become “normal eaters”. Have you been dieting most of your life and you realize it’s just not working…but you’re thinking about trying yet another one. Have you joined and rejoined WW over the years, even reaching lifetime status but always gained the weight back… but here you are, ready to join again. The chatter in your head is never ending and your brain won’t stop obsessing…but you’re looking up another recipe, watching another cooking show, planning another menu, going to another blog…. You’re thinking three words… I’m. So. Done. I can help you get off of the diet roller coaster.
You have been listening to Diet Culture messages your entire life and it is natural to internalize them and be self-critical. You don’t have to do that anymore. Your value is not dependent on your weight or body size. You are enough in your now body. Food is not good or bad. It’s just food. You don’t have to be hypervigilant or asahmed of what you eat.
Food is both for pleasure and fuel. You don’t have to rely on anyone else to tell you what to eat. You have agency to choose to eat whatever feels right for you. It starts with education that leads to transformation: about culture, mindset, Intuitive Eating, body neutrality, and shame resilience. It’s learning to trust yourself and to trust your body.
