You’ve done the latest fad diets.
You’ve done strict weighing and tracking.
Yet despite your best efforts, you feel like you’re in a perpetual cycle of ‘on-the-wagon’ and ‘off-the-wagon’ when it comes to nutrition.
It’s not your fault.
When you follow a strict plan, it teaches you how to follow a strict plan. This can be super helpful for learning about macronutrients specific to your goals, and can certainly help with quick or specific results (i.e a race, a fitness competition, a wedding)
But what happens when that plan or diet is over, or when you’re unable to (or simply don’t want to) weigh or track your intake?
What many strict plans or fad diets fail to address is the psychology behind our food choices… things like HOW and WHY we eat…
…Eating skills that allow you to continue to work on your health goals long-term, without saying no to your favourite foods or feeling stressed around making ‘bad’ choices.
I understand the frustration. Because that was me, too…
I’d try to eat as “perfectly” as I could, following whatever diet I was on… but when I wasn’t following the plan to a T, I’d lose control and go all out (especially on weekends).
I thought I was doing everything I needed to be “healthy” and “fit”, yet never truly felt confident in my body or how to make consistent choices to support my goals.
I’ve since learned how valuable intuitive eating skills are. They provide a deeper understanding of your own hunger cues, and increase awareness around your choices.
They can help you remove feelings of guilt or remorse when eating something you enjoy – because there’s really no such thing as “good” or “bad” food (it’s relative).
I love eating with more mindfulness and ultimately more freedom (and feel better than I ever have) – and it’s why I’m so passionate about sharing it with others!
Join my 28-day Initiative Eating Habit challenge to start exploring these skills yourself – and gain the freedom around food that you deserve.
