“I want to move with joy”
“I want to get out of the funk of not movement”
“I know exercise is good for me… just can’t bring myself to do it”
“How do I motivate myself to move more without dreading it.”
That you are at the beginning stage of challenging the concept of dieting or an advanced intuitive eater that now wants to work on reclaiming their relationship to exercise. Or that you have made peace with food already and now want ...
"Nothing is easy for the unwilling."
When we set a goal or desire to change an aspect of our life or self, we often get “stuck” into inaction.
The fear of taking action in the unknown and the paralysis into stagnation is normal. It’s present for most of us women. This fear is a normal reaction from our brain to command us into staying put instead of moving ourselves into the unknown.
It’s our brain’s duty to prevent us f...
Smart Goals are to goal setting what dieting is to Diet Culture.
For years, I set goals the diet Culture way… you know, the SMART GOALS. Every year the pattern repeated itself. Give up by the 5th week.
Just like diet culture, SMART goals are anchored on external results, accomplishment of actions, grounded into avoidance of failure and perfectionism. It’s archaic, sexist and builds on elitist principles.
Just like dieting doesn’t w...
“It feels terrible as a mom to put yourself first... it’s easy to say self-care when you don’t have kids”.

You’ll get an answer for each of these 25 non-diet approach & business questions.
The end of a year in our current culture serves as a point of reflection: what went well, what didn’t go so well, for me what I’ve learned….what we accomplished and then we also use this time to set ourselves goals, objective, intention for the new year. This process of reflection and intention setting is a very powerful process for us and should be done.

The Non-Diet Business Mindset discourse is vastly different from the traditional business mindset discourse you might have heard.
Simply because the same system of oppression that is in place to keep women stuck in diet culture is present in the business world.
One of our guest expert teachers, Dr. Michelle Mazur is Ph.D. in sales psychology as an expert coined the term “Bro Marketing” to describe this phenomenon.
My journey with exercise has been chaotic for most of my life.
Dieting really screwed up my relationship to exercise as much as it f*cked up my relationship to food.
When I first entered the world of Health At Every Size and Intuitive eating the concept of Joyful Movement sent me straight into cognitive dissonance.
And then I quickly realize that as much work I needed to do to change how I perceived food and my food habits I needed...
What to do when others talk about dieting when I’m trying to stop?

You have a degree or certification in hands and you are ready to get started.

I often get asked what is the difference between mindful eating and intuitive eating.
While mindful eating teaches you to be present with your food experience, intuitive eating encompasses the whole relationship to food.
Both are different and similar at the same time. Both are excellent and should be incorporated into one’s life.
Based on your past experience with food one might be better than the other. That's what we will d...

We recorded a live session for this podcast just for you based on your questions:
Have you been told you shouldn’t be eating X or Y food for your health?
As a good responsible patient, you’ve been trying your best to do so.
But in secret, you obsess about the food that is “illegal” for you?
You resent the fact that you can’t have sugar as a diabetic. Sometimes end up even end up overeating that “illegal food”.
You struggle with “on plan” consistently. You may even feel guilty for not being “good enough” to contr...
“I’m doubting my ability as a coach...How can I increase my confidence as a coach?”
A very frequent error health coaches make is to get more certification in order to be more confident in their coaching skills.
A new certification will not give you confidence.Being A Confident Non-Diet Coach
Confidence is an emotion. Confidence is a feeling.
Coaching confidence is a feeling of trust in your ability to coach your client.
"If you don't love it, don't eat it and if you love it, savor it". - Evelyn TriboleSatisfaction versus Fullness
The difference between satisfaction versus fullness is how you can see that diet culture has invaded your journey through intuitive eating because satisfaction with food is always left off the non-diet way of diet culture.
Food can be filling without being satisfying: Think of your last diet when you ate ...
One of the frequent questions from health coaches who encounter my work in the non-diet approach for the first time is this:
How do I make money as a non-diet coach?
I get it. I had the same question 6 years ago when I first came to the world of anti-diet health coaching. If we don’t tell people what to eat when to eat and how to eat, what will they pay us for? Right?
To help answer this question, I’d like to give you an inside vie...
Body shame is what kick-started my descent into perfectionism. No matter what I did, I couldn't rid myself of the shame I felt for my body. Like millions of other women, I master up a plan to offset my inability to get a "proper body" by being perfect everywhere else.
Why is body shame so powerful?What you’ll learn listening to this episode:
When I first started in my nutrition practice the term “non-diet approach” didn’t even cross my mind. “Anti-diet approach” didn’t even exist. Unbeknown to me, I was practicing the “diet approach to nutrition” simply because that’s what was taught in health & nutrition school.
Fast forward close to 10 years now and a lot have changed. The non-diet approach is growing rapidly, so has the anti-diet approach and intuitive eating is...
