I wanted to let you know I have space available in the upcoming Make Peace with Food program.
This program is helpful for anyone who has struggled with emotional eating, overeating, binge eating, yo-yo dieting, food worry, restrict-overeat cycle, or feels uncomfortable with their relationship with food and body. Feel free to forward to someone you know who might be interested.
This is for you if you:
“Know” nutritional self-care, but find it difficult to implement
Fear overeating and/or deprivation/restriction
Find it difficult to set boundaries around food
Feel numb or overwhelmed by emotions
Find yourself eating “at” someone or something; rebellious eating
Have a history of yo-yo dieting
Eat when you’re not hungry or beyond full
Feel “addicted” to particular foods
Feel sad, guilty or disappointed about your body and self image
Struggle with feelings of worth
Engage in emotion driven eating some of the time (boredom, procrastination, boosting your energy, etc)
Think about food often
Were put on a diet or experienced body shame at a young age
Through the program you will learn how to balance emotional hunger and physical imbalances that contribute to emotion driven eating. This is a compassionate mind-body approach, which focuses on learning skills such as:
research based strategies to help you change habits and increase mindful eating
working with your inner critic
coping with physical and emotional cravings
identifying needs and increasing pleasure without using food
increasing a healthy relationship with food, body & self
learning emotion coping skills
filling emptiness through letting go, creating purpose and meaning and nourishing connections
Step into your life in a different way.
What participants have shared:
“It has been so helpful to realize that this is about so much more than my body. Experiencing others (with a variety of body types) struggling with the same issues as me was so helpful.”
“I’ve been in pain nearly my entire life because of my struggle with food and the experiences and emotions that led me to abuse it. Being overweight and turning to food to soothe myself have colored every aspect of my life: how I handled my relationships with people, my choices of friends and lovers, career choices, how I dressed, the homes I’ve had and the condition in which I kept them, what I thought of myself as a person, my expectations of others…just everything. The more I think about it the sadder I feel. But, it’s a sadness for what was, not for what has to be my future. I don’t have the right words to thank you for offering a program that relieved me of that struggle. Just know that I am truly grateful.”
“The skills I’ve learned in the group I’ve applied to many areas of my life – in my hobbies, activities, and finding joy in movement. It’s bearing so much fruit in my life. I’ve continued to use the tools to help me through the holidays and it’s been so helpful to me. Thank you for investing so much in helping me through this.”
