Did you know that you were born an intuitive eater? Somewhere down the road you lost food freedom and your sense of wonder and love towards your body. It is not your fault. You became saturated in a world that is obsessed with food restrictions, the latest diet or “wellness trend” and unattainable beauty standards. You feel your worth being measured by a scale. This is diet culture. It tells us what to eat, how much to eat and how to "fix" our flawed bodies to be worthy in life. This leaves you feeling anxious, confused and mistrusting of your body. Disordered eating, also known as chronic dieting, has been "normalized"; it is encouraged by peers and people bond over it.
Diet culture is pervasive and toxic.
Wouldn't you rather spend all that energy and time doing what you really love? Eating satisfying foods with your family and friends guilt-free? Having no food rules? Being relaxed around ALL foods?
Enjoying food and your body like you once did when you were young?
What if I told you that
And that you can eat what you want and feel good in your here-and-now body?
As a Registered Dietitian I am most interested in you having a positive relationship with food and your body. I work to disrupt the norms of diet culture, help people heal from disordered eating and build back body trust. Diet culture sells us lies and erodes our mental, physical and emotional health.
