How To Trust Yourself Around Food

How To Trust Yourself Around Food

When we first realize that dieting doesn’t work, learning how to listen to our body can be terrifying. So, how do you start to trust yourself around food? How do you take all of the years spent NOT listening to your body and learn to trust yourself again? Find out in today’s video! Trust is a big part of feeling free around food. We typically begin dieting because we don’t trust ourselves…we think that if left to our own devices, we’ll spiral out of control and gain 100 pounds.

How Do You Accept Your Body When You Don’t Like What You See?

How Do You Accept Your Body When You Don’t Like What You See?

A part of the journey towards being “normal” around food is learning to accept yourself. But how do you accept your body when you don’t like what you see?! That is exactly what I’m talking about in today’s blog. I got an email the other day that said: “I am done with dieting. Dieting, food programs, and strict eating rules are something I’m really working to put behind me.  I simply cannot count, obsess or think about food anymore. BUT I also can’t accept my body. I just can’t accept where I am because I don’t LIKE where I am.

How To Not Binge On Easter Candy

How To Not Binge On Easter Candy

When it comes to feeling confident in our eating, we all know that special events and holidays can be super challenging! Since Easter is this week, I wanted to do a special post on “How To Not Binge On Easter Candy”. You can use this as a reminder for any holiday, but I know for me, Easter was always really really tough. I had some of my worst binges on or after Easter, so I hope this helps you stay sane and eat “normally” on whatever holiday you’re celebrating! (And remember, “normal” eaters DO occasionally eat too much or have

Why Your Natural Weight Isn’t What You Think It Is

Why Your Natural Weight Isn’t What You Think It Is

What is your natural weight and how do you “get” there? This is something I battled for a long time. I knew I didn’t want to diet or go on an extreme food regime, but I also wanted to get to my “natural weight” (aka the weight I thought my body should be at). I spent years being in one place (at one weight) and wishing I could be somewhere else (at another weight). It caused me so much suffering and pain because I resisted, struggled against and battled my body. What if I told you that your natural weight

An Inside Look: What I’m Still Working On

An Inside Look: What I’m Still Working On

The ladies in The Normal Eaters Club know that I like to be fully open, honest and transparent. I always share tidbits from my own life: food struggles, habits I want to change, emotions I’m working through and other stories that help illustrate real-life examples of the ins and outs of this journey. When I was at the beginning of my own healing, I remember asking the woman I worked with a million questions. (What did she eat? Did she ever binge? Were all these emotions normal? Did she ever eat in secret? etc) I wanted to know that what I

How Do You Not Diet If You Have Weight To Lose?

How Do You Not Diet If You Have Weight To Lose?

If you follow my blog and know what I teach, you know that I do not “sell” weight loss. I am not a fan of “before and after” photos (read one of my most popular blog posts on that here), I don’t advocate clean eating, I never prescribe certain foods/plans, and I promote body acceptance (instead of reaching a goal weight and then accepting your body). BUT, the reason we diet in the first place is because typically, we aren’t happy with our bodies and we want to lose weight!  So how then do we approach this whole “not dieting”
