Frequently Asked Questions
Is this an intuitive eating course?
No, we touch on intuitive eating and a more mindful approach to eating, but this course is not a how- to in intuitive eating. This course is all about breaking the cycle of dieting, creating a reciprocal relationship between food and your body - a big part of that is learning the signals of the body. Intuitive eating is just the tip of the iceberg - this is a lifelong journey.
Is this a nutrition course?
No, this is not a traditional nutrition course telling you what you should and shouldn’t eat. In fact, it’s quite the opposite. This course is about opening the conversation to having space for all foods in your life. But, as part of opening up the dialogue for all foods, we do include an entire module dedicated to debunking nutrition myths, and another on figuring out what the heck to eat to feel your best with an evidence-based, non-diet approach. If you’re looking for eat this, not that and caloric intake, this course is not for you, but it can be if you’re open to learning a new way of approaching nutrition.
Don’t I need to diet or control my food in order to be healthy?
Heck no! This perpetuates the belief that in order to feel good about your body and self, you have to follow a specific, controlled diet for the rest of your life. Is that food freedom? No way. In the course, we teach you how to challenge this belief and how to actually improve your relationship with food and incorporate health-promoting behaviors - because dieting doesn’t own health.
What if I want/need to lose weight for my health?
This course is not a weight loss program. We do understand that some participants may have the desire to lose weight for various reasons and this course addresses those concerns and desires. We actually have two entire Modules on this topic! If you want to learn more about our approach to this, we created a whole podcast episode for you that addresses this. Check it out here!
