I love this interview I did on the Healthspace podcast as it provides a great outline for what intuitive eating is and how using internal body cues of hunger, fullness and satisfaction to guide your eating (instead of diets) rebuilds body wisdom and trust.
Client: I've noticed a pattern where I will binge eat, sleep it off or numb by watching TV, social media, etc for the day. It sounds so simple in theory to journal, or get fresh air but in reality, my default is to just reach for the ice cream and sit in front of the TV. How do you go about dealing with hard emotions without self-sabotaging the process?
Most people I meet assume a health coach helps people lose weight and get healthy with meal plans or new diet.
But in reality, most of my clients are already health-conscious, they’re not afraid of a chia seed pudding, and they probably switched to almond mylk years ago. What they struggle with is their relationship with food and body.
In this video, I chat with buddying coach and friend, Jess Silsby about how to let go of the safety net of 'diets' and learn to eat more intuitively. We talk about what it means to “reject the diet mentality”, what does a healthy relationship with food actually look like?
In this audio, I chat with Shreen El Masry,Body Positive Personal Trainer, about our shared views of the problematic side of “on & off the wagon” eating and if not dieting then what? The first step to breaking the diet-binge cycle.
What is Intuitive Eating and how it’s different to dieting? In this video we talk about what “listening to your body” really means and give you 3 tangible ways to practice so you can leave the chocolate bar in your bag (because you just don’t feel like it anymore!)
Roast chicken and veg is simple, cheap and somewhat forgiving meal that can literally be turned inside out to produce multiple rich and super nutritious meals from the by-product of leftover chewed on wings, carcass and jelly from a chicken roast.
We've hit mid Jan, you've settled back into more of a routine, you've packed some healthy salads to take to work (meal prep, check!) and getting to the gym a few extra times a week. All is well on the New Year, New You front -- yeah?
It’s when we start to make decisions from a place of self care, not self control that we can choose foods that nourish, not superficially fill. To stop battling our bodies with exercise and instead, move because we love the way it makes us feel. To rest because we need some space.
