Limiting Beliefs, and why you need to know about them

Beliefs are everything. They literally shape our lives. What you believe about food, money, love, life, happiness, and health… is affecting you right now. It is affecting you practically, subconsciously, and energetically, and your beliefs are being mirrored back to you through your reality. That’s why it’s so easy to continue believing your beliefs, they…

What’s up with this chakra thing, Caroline?

The first thing my mom asked me when I was excitedly explaining all about the energy and chakra program I took in the fall was… “…Uhhh, fun… but don’t you worry this will ruin your credibility?” She meant with The Fuck It Diet. She meant, You give such important and good advice to people with food,…

Is The Fuck It Diet just GIVING UP on My Health?

I get it. You’re petrified. I’ve been there. You’re thinking, Isn’t it ok to care about my health? Isn’t it ok to care about how I feed myself? Sure. Feeding yourself well is important part of self care. But it all depends how you are defining “feeding yourself”? Because eating the smallest amount possible, trying to…

Your Brain on Restriction

We do not talk about what restriction (even a little bit) does to your brain. Your emotions. Your psyche. Your stability. A dieting brain is not a stable one. Restriction is not kind to the brain. The best documented example of this is from The Minnesota Starvation Experiment, an experiment that could never be replicated now because…

Starvation Response

You’re nuts over food because of restriction. When you restrict your food, even a little bit, the starvation response kicks in. If you control your food, even just a little bit, the starvation response kicks in. If you think you are going to restrict tomorrow or eventually “after you try this intuitive eating thing”, the…

How to Think About Nutrition

When people start trying to eat normally, they almost always have to go through a phase of craving and eating things they used to think were “bad”, or things that are not generally considered “healthy”. And it freaks. them. out. What’s wrong with me?! Is this just proving I’m a glutton? Is this proving my…

Are You In Your Body?

Maybe you’ve already been able to tell this… but I’m “into energy”. I’m woo-woo. I believe in soul purposes, and alignment, and intuition, and epiphanies, energy and God/Universe/Life/Spirit/Higher Power/Divine (whatever you want to call it). I work with Chakras. I believe that healing your relationship to your life goes hand in hand with healing your…
