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”

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

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

How To Stop Overeating At Night

How To Stop Overeating At Night

Do you get to the end of a “good” day with food and it all seems to go downhill after dinner? That used to be my biggest problem…I’d try SO hard to be good and conscious of what I was eating during the day and then all hell seemed to break loose at night. No matter what I did, I didn’t know how to stop overeating at night! This is one of the biggest struggles I hear from clients, too. So how do you start to “control” your cravings at night so you don’t end up binging? Here are 3

Why I Threw Out Everything I Knew About Nutrition

Why I Threw Out Everything I Knew About Nutrition

I used to know everything about nutrition. I knew the calories in 95 percent of the items at the grocery store, which foods had the most omega-3s, what a plant-based diet did for the body, how food combining helped digestion improve, and which foods had the lowest fat content and fewest calories. I spent two years in a graduate program, studying nutrition and spending most of my spare time absorbing as much information as I could about plant-based health, nutrition content, minerals/vitamins, food-related diseases, and a healthy diet. At the same time, I was also knee-deep in battling disordered eating.

Are You Unintentionally on a Diet?

Are You Unintentionally on a Diet?

Restrictive thoughts can be sneaky little devils. We’re happily going about our day and think we are eating healthy…then BOOM after dinner, we find ourselves eating cookie after cookie and can’t seem to stop. What’s going on? It could be that you’re unintentionally on a diet. Any form of restriction or dieting will inevitably end up in a binge. Why?
