Welcome to the Anti-Diet Movement - I'm So Glad You're Here

Hello! Welcome to what I promise is a safe haven from diet culture. I'm so glad you're here.

Diet culture has ruled the eating and nutrition space for decades and where has it gotten us? We are not healthier. We are not thinner. We are not happier. How can this be when every diet promises these very things! "You will be thinner, healthier, and happier - it's easy!". Instead it's made us heavier and sicker, and eating has become stressful, shameful, and often scary. Not only that, but the diet industry has granted itself immunity by placing 100% of the blame squarely back on your shoulders: "the diet didn't fail you, you failed the diet".

I'm here to tell you that the diet industry lied.

We've been taught that we do not have the ability to guide our own eating decisions. That left to our own devices, we'd be out of control! It would be a fat and sugar free-for-all! The reality is that your body is the true expert when it comes to feeding your body. Not me. Not your doctor. Not a fancy new diet-book. You! Your body is better than anyone else at knowing when you need to eat, what you need to eat, and how much you need to eat. The real problem is that we have all been taught not to listen to it! It's this disconnect that drives our intense cravings, out-of-control feelings around food, and binge eating. And of course the diet industry swoops right in to tell you that the solution is more discipline! More self-control! More motivation! Again, "the diet didn't fail you, you failed the diet".

Nuh uh. No way.

The solution is to stop listening to diets and to start listening to your body again. As you start paying attention to your body and responding to its cues, intense cravings, out-of-control feelings around food, and binge eating fade away. As the natural symbiotic relationship between your brain and your body is re-established, eating becomes calm, easy, and pleasurable.

This is a very scary journey to start. It's always scary to start something new and especially when it goes against everything you've ever been taught. It is challenging to navigate this perspective shift on your own, but there are lots of resources available to help you.

Here are a couple of jumping-off points to try:
