I'm always shocked by how many women live on a roller coaster of "diet, relapse, diet" and feel bound by a world of calorie counting and weight loss.
I love working with my clients to move from a 'diet' philosophy to one of nutritional value and nourishment.
If you don't love yourself or your body, then you're never going to invest time and effort to eat foods that actually nourish you.
Peeling back the years of dieting usually reveals a relationship with your body that requires more attention than just a 'diet'.
1) Do you eat for comfort, boredom or stress relief?
2) Are you so busy with work and the family that you don't actually have time to eat yourself?
3) Do you have a hectic lifestyle that restricts your ability to prepare healthy food?
All of these boil down to giving yourself the time and attention of slowing down and putting You back on the priority list.
So next time you look at the calorific value, STOP. Instead ask yourself what is the nutritional value and purpose of what I'm feeding my body and my soul?
