Are You Ready To Get Off The DIET Roller Coaster And Start Living?
Have you ever thought about if how and what you eat affects your mood?
Maybe you’re struggling with anxiety, depression, mania, insomnia, restlessness or another type of mood imbalance, and you’re starting to wonder about the connection between food and mood. Yet, instead of working with the underlying issues that affect your mood, you just can’t get over the drive to LOSE WEIGHT! Perhaps you think that if you could just lose those 20, 40, or 100 pounds your life would be better.
So, begins the punishing harsh and restrictive ways of eating that are unsustainable. This white knuckle approach can last for a while—until irresistible desires for unhealthy or forbidden food cause you to fall off the wagon. Then, like millions of others, you likely shame or guilt yourself into continuing on the restrictive eating pattern, only to fail again. The underlying mood disturbances remain. You feel as anxious or depressed as ever, and the cycle continues.
Diets don’t work!
Research shows that 95 percent of all people who lose weight on a diet will regain the lost weight, plus more. The drive to eat is biologically based; however our desires for unhealthy, nutritionally-poor food are enforced by food manufacturers who use scientific manipulation to create food-like substances that cannot be resisted.
What we eat and how we eat matters. At The Center for Mindful Benefits, my integrative approach addresses food and mood issues together. In food and mood counseling sessions, I help you create a sustainable approach to weight loss, weight restoration and a healthy and sustainable approach to eating that can be maintained for life. Our food plans do not restrict or demonize food groups. Rather, I move clients toward healthful, whole-foods nutrition with all of the components that promote optimized health. No fake foods, drugs, supplements or punishing regimes here! I also promote self-compassion and kindness for ourselves and the environment, with sustainable, healthful meal plans and exercise that foster optimized weight.
