Are you ready to stop counting, weighing, tracking, restricting, obsessing . . .
How did our ancestors know what to eat without tracking apps, food labels, and trendy diets? Simple! They relied on hunger, fullness, and satisfaction cues to guide eating. While our food landscape has changed, our bodies are still the most reliable tool to tell us when, what, and how much to eat. With a little practice, you can learn to trust your body and stop stressing over your food.
Are you ready to ditch the diet and start healing your relationship with food and your body?
Dieting increases food anxieties and body dissatisfaction. The more you diet, the more you stress about food and appearance. And over time that stress adds up, leaving you feeling out of control and completely demoralized. Choose to say goodbye to diets once and for all and you'll find yourself empowered to fully enjoy your food and fully appreciate your body.
Are you ready to make a meaningful and lasting change?
Diets are not sustainable in the long term. Period. Full stop.
Studies show that up to 95% of all diets fail, typically resulting in increased weight gain. What's worse? Chronic dieting leads to food anxiety, body dissatisfaction, and poor health outcomes. While many diets promise lasting results, the only true "lifestyle change" is quitting diets for good.
Intuitive eating is an evidence-based nutrition framework developed by dietitians Evelyn Tribole and Elyse Resch after recognizing that even sensible dieting was failing their clients. Intuitive eating is based on ten principles designed to quiet the diet voice, foster health behaviors, and strengthen the mind-body connection.
A non-diet approach to nutrition counseling includes elements of intuitive eating and may also incorporate mindfulness and behavioral strategies. Unlike traditional diets, a non-diet approach does not rely on restriction to guide eating and will not include calorie or macro counting or limit any foods or food groups. Instead, non-diet nutrition and intuitive eating empower you to recognize and honor your own internal hunger, fullness, and satiety cues.
Why has intuitive eating gotten so popular recently?
An alarming rise in disordered eating coupled with the growing recognition that diets don’t work has led to increased interest in intuitive eating. But don’t be fooled! Intuitive eating isn’t some new fad. Unlike whatever diet is currently trending, intuitive eating has 25 years of research to back it up.
How can I benefit from non-diet nutrition?
Start feeling better TODAY! A non-diet framework shifts the focus from external metrics like weight loss and food restrictions, to intrinsic motivators like total health enhancement and well-being. Imagine eating satisfying meals without guilt while still honoring your health and building confidence in your body. While diets offer the false hope of some future new-and-improved you, a non-diet approach provides the tools to feel better now, today and every day, without shrinking your body.
Can I lose weight with intuitive eating or non-diet nutrition?
Importantly, a non-diet framework is not used for intentional weight loss. Some people lose weight, some people gain weight, and some people experience weight fluctuations. This probably makes you feel a bit uncomfortable – that’s normal! But consider all those times you lost weight only to gain it all back and more. Or the times you followed your diet exactly but didn’t see any weight loss at all. Letting go of the idea of weight loss is tough, yeah, that’s why our team of dietitians is trained to support you as you shift your priorities from weight loss to wellbeing.
