Ep 029 - Is That Your Diet Voice Talking?

We all have 2 voices (well if you've ever been a dieter you do).

We have our diet voice and we have our true voice, that voice we were all born with.

The problem with this is that dieting can become so ingrained that we can't tell if the voice we're hearing is our diet voice or your true inner voice. 

This diet voice can make us feel like we constantly need to be stressing about food, our weight and can make us feel inadequate. This is why we can get stuck in dieting for so many decades even though it isn't working.

We're here today to help you tell the difference and how to deal with these voices!

Ep 023 - Clothing and a Changing Body

We know that clothes can be a really difficult point when it comes to your body changing, especially if that invovles weight gain. In our dieting times, we were always looking to fit into the next smallest size and not fitting into our skinny jeans was a sure fire sign we needed to get serious again on Monday.

We know we don't want that life anymore but what do we do now when it seems like we have to always be buying new clothes for this new body?

Tune in now to learn how to cope with these changes just a little better.

Ep 022 - Why Focusing on Your Weight Set Point is Damaging

In this episode we share with you why focusing on your set point weight is damaging. 

As ex dieters and now fully intuitive eaters, we know you cannot become free around food without letting go of trying to control your weight (SPOILER ALERT: you dont have control over it anyway).

Many people think if they stop obsessing over weight loss they will all of a sudden gain a bunch of weight, that is not how it works. Obsessing over it is actually what’s keeping you in the restrict/binge cycle which is actually what has you gain weight overtime. 

This is not to say weight gain is bad, but if your main goal is to lose weight, obsessing over it is not the way to go about it!

You may think you are eating intuitively but if you are still terrified of weight gain or thinking about how IE might help you lose weight, you’re not, this is just another diet.

In Intuitive Eating you’ve probably heard of the weight set point, this is discussed in intuitive eating because when you tune into your body instead of being on the diet rollercoaster your body WILL find a happy place to land, this is rarely your “goal weight” but it is a place your body can be comfortable and maintain for a long time. 

Your set point weight can be less than it is now, more or the same, it doesn't matter, it’s about finding stability NOT finding weight loss. 

This is where things can get tricky because people think, oh i've let go of focusing on weight loss, now i'm just waiting to get to my set point weight….. This is the same thing.

NOTE: Your set point weight will change over time, from aging, circumstances, pregnancies, hormones etc.

You will learn the reasons why waiting for that infamous set point weight is preventing you from finding freedom and balance with food and your body.

Ep 008: I feel crappy...shouldn't I change the way I eat?

I'm sure this has happened to you before. 

You're not feeling top notch so you instantly look to what diet you could go on or what food you could cut out of your life, right?

But what if restricting your food isn't the answer? What if that is actually hurting your body and wellness, instead of helping it?

Okay, so what should we do instead??

In this episode we talk about the alternative ways we can feel better, increase our feelings of wellness and even focus on health WITHOUT restricting or dieting at all.
