NUTRITION COUNSELING TO STOP OVEREATING
Do you overeat when you’re stressed, bored, or sad?
Now’s the time to stop! Time for you to stop eating mindlessly, and to break free from the cycle of emotional eating, guilt, and shame. Are you ready to learn how trust yourself with food without rigid rules and restrictions?
A great relationship with food is possible for you! You just need to work with an experienced Nutrition Counselor. My Anti-Diet approach has helped over 100 people make peace with food and stop overeating.
You know it’s time for you to stop mindless, emotional and “stress” eating.
You want to be able to trust yourself to decide what you eat and when you eat it – so that food is a non-issue.
You’re eager to find a way to eat and live without rigid rules and restrictions. You know from experience that diets aren’t sustainable and definitely not fun.
I’ll help you get in touch with which foods and eating habits work for you as an individual, so you can be true to yourself and feel confident about your choices. Bonus, the way you eat is a snapshot of the way you live, so your confidence will radiate into every area of your life!
The goal is to move away from being told what/when/where you should eat toward an approach to food that’s fulfilling for you. So you can feel good about yourself and your choices.
There is a bidirectional relationship between how you eat and how you feel about yourself.
Dieting = Self-Judgement
Intuitive Eating = Self-Compassion
Working with me is NOT for you if you’re looking for a quick fix weight loss plan that focuses on counting calories, work outs, or meal plans.
I’m Certified as both a Holistic Health and Intuitive Eating Counselor, as well as being a Licensed Nutritionist, and I’ve got a personalized, integrative approach to balanced eating that works.
If you’re ready to move past diets and weight loss, ready to break free from beating yourself up about your food choices, your eating habits, and your body, I have a lot to offer you.
My clients are able to break free from years of guilt and shame around food!
I can show you how to eat and live intuitively with self-compassion more often than not (nobody’s perfect, it’s about progress, not perfection). I have helped over a hundred people learn new habits so they feel confident about their food choices and good about themselves.
Today’s the day to start feeling better about yourself and your food choices. Hoorah!
I’ll show you how to create a new approach to eating and new habits for living so you can have a healthy relationship with food for the long-term. You’ll be able to shift your focus away from the things you cannot change and put your efforts toward changing the things you can.
First things first. You want to change your relationship with food…
But what does ‘relationship with food’ even mean?
At its most basic, food is fuel. It’s an essential part of life. “Relationship to Food,” for me, means how we use food to relate to ourselves and the world around us.
Food is fuel, sure, but it’s so much more than that.
It’s how we celebrate, it’s community, it’s a coping tool. But, for many people food becomes the only thing they know to turn to for all those needs and the drive for food gets out of balance and out of control.
When I first meet my clients, this is how they describe their relationship with food:
I eat when I’m not hungry.
I don’t eat when I am hungry.
I stop eating before I’m full.
I keep eating even though I am full.
A healthy relationship with food is one where you eat intuitively, intentionally, and you feel good about yourself.
As a Nutrition Counselor, my goal is to help you shift away from your destructive eating habits and move toward a healthy relationship with food.
If you’re tired of feeling sick and tired about the way you use food, and if you want to live peacefully in a world where you can enjoy all the good things food has to offer, this approach is for you.
You can choose nutrient dense foods for fuel, give yourself comfort foods when you need them, and truly enjoy the fun foods of holidays, celebrations, and family traditions.
This approach is not about weight loss. If you’re reading this, it’s likely that weight loss isn’t going to get you any closer to feeling happy, joyous, and free. This approach is about healing yourself and learning skills for living the kind of life that just losing weight cannot.
