Diet

Why it's got Nothing to do with the Diet

If you’ve tried every diet, every new exercise plan, gained and lost 20 pounds more times than you’d like to admit, yet still find yourself struggling to lose weight, I’ve got news for you.

It’s not about the diet!

It’s not because you lack will-power. It’s not because the plan sucked, it’s not because you’re busier than anyone else, and it’s not because of any other external factor, for that matter.

It’s because you have not done the inner work.

Before I go on I want to preface this by saying, the phrase “You’ve got to do the inner work”, annoyed me for a really long time. I’d hear these words often from coaches, speakers, and authors I highly respected. In my logical mind I knew very well that having a positive attitude was important. I knew that learning to love myself and my body was important. I knew that managing my energy, meditating, and practicing daily gratitude were important. I knew that eating a well balanced, primarily clean diet was important too. I knew all the logical things that were required because, hey, I read all the books, did the research, and hired the coaches. I really believed I was doing the WORK! But what I realized was that certain patterns of behavior kept coming up. Those behaviors were the very thing that were keeping me stuck and holding me back from the place I knew I was more than capable of getting to.

If you:

  • find yourself not going to they gym after you’ve committed to going

  • eat the cake, cookies or chips when you said you wouldn’t

  • find yourself overexercising or skimping on meals after a ‘bad’ day of eating

  • always have food on your mind

  • binge eat when you’re stressed out

It’s likely that you too have missed doing the inner work.

As a Holistic Health & Nutrition Coach it is my job to help you find the areas hidden away in your subconscious mind, that have been preventing you from achieving your health, fitness, and life goals. In my work we dive into your deep routed beliefs that, for many, are still unknown. This is the area that houses our DNA, childhood experiences, heartaches, trauma, failures, and shame. They are the pieces of us that hold power over how we think, feel, and act. Whether you know it or not, they are there, driving you to do things that either move you towards your goals, or hold you back on the sidelines.

It is only when you are able to tap into this area, and acknowledge, heal, and gain self-awareness, that the real MAGIC happens. Tapping into this place helps you realize how feelings of loneliness as a child can be the very the reason you turn to food when you are stressed out. Or it can help you understand that the real reason you don’t go to the gym is because deep down you fear you will lose love if you commit to caring for yourself.

I can give you all the nutrition information, meal plans, and detoxes (which I do btw), but until we uncover what has been holding you back, real and lasting changes will not happen long term. Before you get too overwhelmed, please remember that all of these challenges get more manageable and less terrifying when you find someone to help you through them—and when you take them on in small bites.

So imagine this:

  • Your pants always fit and your weight stays where you want it to

  • You don’t diet and you don’t binge and you generally make good choices

  • Food no longer has control over you

  • You feel in control, at ease, and at peace with food once and for all

This magic happens when you go inward. You’ll learn to stand tall, speak your truth, eat with ease, wake up with energy, and walk with confidence.
