How is this webinar different than what you have learned before ?
I bring a uniquely trauma-informed and inclusive lens to why we struggle with our relationship food, exercise, and body image.
I have personally recovered from binge-eating, disordered eating practices and now have an enjoyable movement practice that works to nourish me and I will share the hard earned wisdom in the years of recovery I have travelled through.
In spite of all the nutritional knowledge you have and your convictions about living a healthy and active lifestyle are you still unable to follow through? Do you often feel frustrated and disappointed with yourself when it comes to food and body?
Have you tried various diets with short-lived success?
With all the information out there about nutrition, dieting, weight loss and how to be healthy it can feel like an impossible task to find the right path. Where do you start?
I believe most people have a pretty solid understanding of what they are ‘supposed’ to eat, and that nutritional information alone is not enough. If we want to make changes we have to start to look at our relationship with food. Tendencies to overeat, binge, diet, control, and restrict are all related to our relationship with food.
Our relationship with food is much bigger then what we eat, it’s also about our emotional connection to what we are eating and our habits and patterns around food. It is all directly related to the stress in our lives, our biology, our histories, the social conditioning around what it means to be “healthy’”, and the meaning attached to body size.
To understand why we do what we do with food we need to dig deeper than simply nutrition and start to look at our relationship with food as a doorway into our emotional, mental, and spiritual well being.
In this 4-week series, you will learn how social and cultural influences impact your relationship with food and your body and how stress and trauma have a greater impact on your health than simply nutrition and exercise.
You will learn about the Health at Every Size approach to health and wellness, why diets don’t work, how weight cycling creates negative health outcomes, and the impacts of restricting food on your mental, emotional, and physical health.
Once you have a better understanding of the social influences, including diet culture, and the impacts of stress on your relationship with food and your body then we can begin to take different approaches to your overall health and wellness.
Using the Intuitive Eating principles as a guide we will explore how to change your relationship with food, to reclaim what it means to have body trust, and to explore how movement can be a part of healing how you live and experience being in your body.
