We’ve dieted for too long! Despite diets failing some 95% of us, we have continued with this recipe for un-success. It’s time to set aside punishing ourselves with that which sustains (food) and gives us life. Time to be free from guilt, restriction, and admonishment. The non-diet approach aligns beautifully with coaching principles.

As a client-first approach designed to support the self-determination process coaching is a perfect vehicle for a non-diet approach. This course will explore the long and unsuccessful history of dieting, society’s weight bias, and body image challenges and their influence on body satisfaction, body image, and personal wellbeing. You’ll review the influence of media and social media, the thin ideal and self-comparison.

The non-diet approach is framed by the Health At Every Size (R) approach, the course walks through how to reconnect to natural body cues of hunger and fullness in order to eat for health and nourishment of the mind, body and soul. It covers the importance of acceptance of all foods, and of the natural diversity of body sizes and shapes, and looks at ways to find joyful expressions of movement.
