Intuitive Eating and Non-Diet Approach
We use an “intuitive eating”, “all foods fit,” mindfulness approach to working on food and your relationship with food. The latest research overwhelmingly supports that dieting doesn’t work. It is the one product/industry where the person purchasing the product fails over and over, and the individual person is blamed for the failure, rather than the actual product or process being to blame.
Ninety-five percent of those who diet will regain the weight they have lost plus some, then go on a new diet and get the same results, being trapped in a perpetual dieting hamster wheel. The reasons why dieting doesn’t work are complex, involving biology and environment. Our brains weren’t wired to sustain long term deprivation.
Most everyone, when told they cannot have something, will respond with becoming preoccupied with that food and likely overeat or binge eat that food one “will power” has broken down. The biggest lie the diet industry sells is that it’s all about finding the “right program” or having the right amount of “will power” leaving you feeling like a hopeless failure.
You may be thinking, there’s no way I can let go of dieting and also maintain my health! We promise this is possible. Weight cycling through dieting can actually be just as harmful physically as it is emotionally. We will discuss nutrition and health and how to achieve health while letting go of dieting.
If you are tired of being stuck in the diet cycle and want to make peace with food, we would love to help you do that. We promise not to sell you any gimmicks or put you on restrictive food plans in the process!

Intuitive eating is a process, and not a “one size fits all” approach. We tailor the concepts of intuitive eating to each of our client’s individual needs, diagnoses, and situations.
