You know diets don’t work. But did you know that diets can actually be dangerous?
Studies have shown that individuals with repeated fluctuations in weight are at a significantly higher risk of diabetes and other weight related illnesses (Mann et al. 2007). If diets don’t work then what is the key to obtaining and maintaining a beautiful, capable and healthy body?
In a word… Mindfulness.
In my 8 week mindfulness based weight management program I will show you how to fall back in love with food and with your body. Together we will heal your relationship with food, learn how to properly listen and respond to what your body needs and understand just what happens in the body when we consume nutrients.
Unlike diets, which function on a deprivation-based model, mindfulness operates on an abundance-based model. A model of loving kindness. Accepting ourselves just as we are, love handles, thighs and all; in a gentle, nonjudgmental, eyes wide open sort of way. Because, ironically, only when we begin to accept things just as they are, can we change anything (Carl Rogers).
In order to effect real and lasting change in your diet, body and therefore your life is to change how you interact with food.
Change your mind, change your waistline!
Not everyone who struggles with food is overweight. Whether you are overweight, underweight or a healthy weight we all can benefit from a better relationship with our food.
