I come across the same story daily.
I hear of a woman in her mid-40s to 50s who has struggled with her weight for most of her life. She has been on many diets, some that worked short term, and possibly one or two she managed to stay on for a considerable time and even maintained her weight for a while. Each time she returns to the diet the results are not as much and after she quits her weight goes up a little higher until she gets to the point where now she is just gaining. Her daily routine sends her into waves of being good or being bad. Some days she is so confused by what to eat that she decides not to eat anything all day then she gets so hungry that she binge eats at the end of the day taking in twice the amount of calories that she would usually have. So she labelled herself good in the morning but bad by nightfall.
People constantly offered her advice about magic shakes and superfoods that ‘melt away’ the fat and she becomes so desperate that she spends oodles of money on supplements that either does nothing at all or worse, give her side defects such as diarrhoea or constipation.
Her husband /partner is always telling her that she is perfect the way she is but inside she can’t see why anyone could love her looking the way she does. She considers going to the gym but is so ashamed of the way she looks she’s just too scared to walk through the door. Well, everyone in the gym will be fitter and slimmer than her and she’ll never fit in – or so she believes.
So can you relate to this story? If so, I will help you to break free of this cycle of eating and support you to remove the labels that you give yourself about being good or bad. I can share with you the reasons why you’re addicted to certain foods - that once you start eating you can’t stop. I can then offer you guidance on how to manage these cravings and help you to have a normal relationship with food so that you eat when you are hungry and stop when you are full.
From this, you will be empowered to make better food choices with your new understanding of how some foods affect your body you will be able to continue without the help of the meal plan.
