Intuitive Eating Coaching

Intuitive eating coaching is a process where you will learn how to systematically break free from the dieting trap to free up your precious time and energy so that you can live your life free of food and weight worries.

Intuitive Eating Coaching:

Do you feel out of control and obsessive around foods?

Are you tired of hating your body and struggling with your weight?

Do you wish you could get off the yo-yo dieting roller coaster?

Do you wish you could just eat ‘normally’ but don’t trust yourself.

Do you struggle with emotional eating?

Are you done with dieting but know you need to do something?

 

 

You’re ready to make some changes, but you’re not sure how to break out of the dieting trap.

Here is where I come in, as your intuitive eating coach…

Intuitive eating coaching is a process where you will learn how to systematically break free from the dieting trap to free up your precious time and energy so that you can live your life free of food and weight worries.

 Together in this process, I will help guide you to:

RESTORE TRUST WITH YOUR BODY

Learn tools and practices to reconnect you to your body’s physical hungers. Know the difference between your physical hungers AND your emotional hungers. Gain clarity and confidence around how much and when to eat.

REEXAMINE DIETING

We will take a serious look at obstacles that are undermining your body trust. I will give your tools and exercises to reveal how your thoughts, beliefs and rules continue to sabotage your best intentions.

MAKE PEACE WITH FOOD

It’s time to call a truce on fighting food! Forbidding yourself specific foods leads to a paradoxical rebound effect that triggers overeating. I will help you end the overeating cycle for good.

BEFRIEND YOUR INNER CRITIC

You will learn and practice strategies to loosen the grip of the internal critic aka Food Police, and gain access to your wise compassionate self. You will move from a place of curiosity instead of judgment, and this will allow you to feel lighter, freer and happier.

JOYFUL MOVEMENT

Let’s examine your relationship to exercise- whether that is over or under exercising. Leading with internal motivators, such as pleasure aka feels good, instead of punishment or neglect.

MINDFUL EATING 101

I will teach you the basic skills of mindful eating so you can break out of the mindless overeating cycle. You will be able to identify when you are physically full and how to stop eating at your comfort zone.

DISCOVER SATISFACTION WITH EATING

Reclaim your birthright to eat and enjoy all foods with pleasure and satisfaction instead of feeling guilt or worrying about weight gain. A truly liberating concept that will revolutionize your relationship to everything- not just food!

MANAGE EMOTIONAL EATING
Navigate emotional eating and learn new coping skills to break out of self-sabotaging over eating patterns. Increase your EQ (emotional quotient) and finds ways to nourish yourself that are way more effective than food.
WEIGHT NEUTRAL APPROACH
Make peace with your genes; cultivate gratitude for your body and allow it to arrive at its natural set point. Feel happier and lighter in your body no matter what size Earthsuit you’re wearing.
GENTLE NUTRITION
Years of dieting and chaotic eating patterns has taken a toll on your metabolism, confusing your internal cues. For many, following a structured eating plan will help recalibrate internal cues. Individualized meal plans will provide a sense of safety and permission, and correct any dietary deficiencies. Meal plans also boost the metabolic rate allowing you to feel an increase in energy and improved mood aka feeling better!

As your intuitive eating coach, I will guide you to become the expert of your own body. This process is an inner journey of self- discovery where you reclaim your birthright to enjoy food and be at peace in your own body.

Throughout the process of intuitive eating you will experience:

  • Trust ~ your will befriend your body at a deep level. You will know exactly what to eat and when. 

  • Peace ~ you will feel a sense of ease around food as well as your ability to ‘control’ yourself. 

  • Joy ~ eating is fun and enjoyable again as it was when you were a child. 

  • Freedom ~ you have your life back and have freed up your precious time and energy to live your life free free from struggle. 

Are you ready to make peace with foods and your body?

 

I am sure this all sounds too good to be true! I know I felt like that when I was first beginning my intuitive eating journey. Read my story here.

If you think about how long you have been struggling with food and your body image, please be know that healing from your struggles with food and weight will not happen overnight. This is a process that takes time to heal and unravel from. I have walked this path and will serve as a beacon of hope for your recovery. Recovery and transformation is possible.

“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.”
