I know how tempting it is in January to jump on the diet, detox or deprivation bandwagon. Instead, what if you resolved to make peace with food and your body this year?
How would it feel to liberate yourself from our oppressive, toxic diet culture—one that makes you feel ashamed of your weight and what you ate, causes physical and psychological damage, and distracts you from more meaningful, fulfilling life pursuits?
While you can read all about this proven approach here, it's helpful to hear what other people's experience with Intuitive Eating has been like.
Here’s what one of my clients, Nina, has to say:
“Renee’s Intuitive Eating Workshop has made a huge impact on my life. Prior to the workshop, I was stuck on a 3+ year diet-binge-diet cycle. I used food to cope with a stressful job and cross-country move and as a result gained weight.
I started bouncing from one fad diet to another and eventually became preoccupied with food. I also began binge eating whenever I “failed” at following a new diet precisely. It was a miserable experience.
With the help of Renee’s workshop, I have slowly learned how to reject the diet mentality, allow my internal cues to guide my eating choices and better identify when I am using food to cope with uncomfortable emotions. As a result, my preoccupation with food and my binge eating have diminished significantly.
Moreover, I have been able to shift my focus from food and eating to other parts of my life such as my relationships, finding a new job and other life goals.
I really think anyone living in today’s diet-obsessed world could benefit from taking such a workshop.”
Nina's experience demonstrates that, with patience, compassion, curiosity and support, it is possible to break free from diet culture.
