How Do You Stop Eating When You’re Full?

How Do You Stop Eating When You’re Full?

One of the most difficult things to practice at first is going from a rule-based way of eating (“shoulds”, rules, diets, etc) to “hearing” and honoring what your body is telling you. It’s hard because after years of dieting and/or starting over every other day, we don’t trust ourselves! So, how do you begin to eat according to your body? And most importantly, how do you stop eating when you’re full? This is exactly what today’s blog is all about 🙂 Letting go of old patterns & habits around food is a process of “unlearning” all of the old stuff and replacing

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.

Is It Okay To Have Some Food Rules (Or Should You Give Yourself Permission?)

So I talk a lot about giving yourself permission, allowing yourself to eat more freely, and letting go of food rules.  I mean, it’s hard to get out of the “I swear I’m gonna start over tomorrow!” cycle when you have 100 foods on the list of “things I shouldn’t eat”. But how do you balance all the rules and “shoulds” you have in your head with the freedom you truly desire? That is exactly what I’m talking about in today’s blog. From the time we’re little, we are inundated with what’s healthy vs unhealthy, good vs bad. We grow
