Let Your Diet Choose YOU

No one wants to eat food that doesn’t make them feel good. If we were all to get out of our own way, we would easily and intuitively go for food that tasted good and made us feel great: nourished, calm, satiated, and healthy. That is what we want and what our bodies want. We would naturally and…

New Year’s Resolutions Are Stupid

Generally, I hate common new year’s resolutions. They feed right into that black and white, self-hating, guilt inducing, atone-for-your-carb sins cycle.

Do You Talk About Your Food Obsession?

  Most of us don’t. And by talking about it, I don’t mean: Do you go around saying things like “I am looking for something gluten free on this menu for no reason” or “I am just eating this apple now so I don’t eat other food” or “I can’t eat those tortilla chips because…

Why I Don’t Teach Intuitive Eating

When people are learning not to diet, normally the first thing they try to learn is “intuitive eating”… which often backfires. “Intuitive eating”, in it’s most essential meaning, is great.
