We all have a relationship with food, conscious or not. Maybe yours is respectful. Or maybe it’s filled with confusion, animosity or fear. No matter how you feel about food, you would probably acknowledge food has power. Once you recognize the profound physical and emotional influence of food, you can start to eat in a way that supports your body. And you can change your relationship with food, for the rest of your life.
With Inspired Eating, you can:
• Overcome food issues.
• Eat mindfully and intuitively.
• Identify and banish foods that cause cravings and weight gain.
• End dieting and disordered eating struggles.
• Create a peaceful, pleasurable relationship with food, forever!
Most diets, nutrition plans or eating regimens tell you what to eat. That’s important, for sure, and I can help you identify the foods that nourish and support your particular body.
But it’s also vital to understand why and how you eat. Even the best eating plan won’t work if you don’t do it. Most people hire a nutritionist, walk away from the appointment with a list of foods to eat, lose a few pounds or improve a health condition, and then drop the diet. (Maybe that sounds familiar; it sure does to me!) Eventually, they go back to the same way of eating–and the same problems–because nothing internal has shifted.
And here’s the thing: even if you don’t have emotional eating issues, you still have some kind of relationship with food. One way or another, you’re choosing food, either consciously or not, at least three times a day. That’s a lot of eating, and a lot of choices.
Do you treat food—and eating—with respect? Do you think about where your food comes from, how it’s grown, raised, packaged and processed? Do you think about what it’s doing in your body, if it’s helping or harming your well-being? In a world of conflicting advice and shifting fads, it’s hard to know what “good food” means any more; that decision is best left to you and your body.
The bottom line is, you need both the right kind of food and the right thinking around food.
And at some point, you have to be your own expert, to be inspired by your intuition, your particular body’s wisdom, your passion for foods you love. All that knowledge is already in you; it’s just a matter of allowing it to emerge. That’s where I come in; I’ll help you find your own inner compass.
