Is that you? Have you hit your diet rock bottom yet?
You know, that place where you just cannot fathom starting another diet you know deep down is only going to last for so long before you let your guard down, just for one minute, one bite, and then – POOF – you wind up eating everything in sight.
And the entire time you’re thinking…
“Screw it. I already failed. Might as well eat it ALL now because I’m starting over again tomorrow.”
You’re at the place where you know that every attempt at restrictive diets will backfire, further erode your confidence and cause you to gain more weight over time.
- Can’t relax around food
- Berate yourself as you’re lying in bed at night over all the ways you failed that day
- Feel like hell getting dressed every day because nothing fits or feels good to wear
- Sometimes avoid seeing people because you’re so ashamed of how you look
- Don’t want to socialize because it might interfere with being ‘good’ on your diet
- Punish yourself with exercise but never actually feel like working out
- Feel like your uncontrollable appetite is sabotaging your entire life
- Wish you could STOP obsessing and wasting so much time, energy and mind space every single day worrying about food and your body because it’s exhausting
You are waiting on the weight for your life to start and you’re sick of it.
Feeling like a basket case around food is not fun. And it doesn’t make for a very enjoyable, confident life. We would know. Everyone here on Team Wellness Lately has been there.
Our collective failed attempts at Whole30 can be counted on more hands than we have. The amount of shameful binges we’ve been through outnumber our combined age. And we used to think carbs, sugar and our own bodies were the enemy.
We’ve counted points and almonds and steps. We’ve calculated macros and grams of fiber. And we’ve weighed our food, and ourselves, allowing the scale to dictate our mood on more mornings that we’d like to admit.
We’ve also cried in towels in front of our closets and on the phone with our friends.
That was our reality, until we learned what was causing the craziness around food and keeping us trapped in that painful diet-binge cycle.
Once we understood that there was nothing wrong with us, that there were simply specific things we were thinking and doing that were causing all of our pain and suffering, we were able to heal, because we could simply stop thinking and doing those things.
It took unlearning everything we’d been taught about dieting, food and our bodies. And relearning an entirely new way of relating to both.
But once we stopped thinking and behaving like dieters, we were able to fix our underlying relationship with food and start eating like normal human beings again.
When we were able to do that, and tap back into our bodies’ own wisdom, the binge eating stopped, almost overnight, without any white knuckling or willpower at all.
“Trigger” foods we couldn’t keep in the house before, were completely stripped of their power over us.
We could eat what we wanted, stop when we were full and be one of those unicorn women who could leave a bite of cake on their plate because they are satisfied for once in their lives.
Our weight stabilized at a comfortable range, a place that’s healthy and appropriate for each of our individual bodies.
And there’s no more struggling, no more yo-yo-ing, and no weight cycling or food obsession.
It is magical.
And it has freed up an incredible amount of time, energy and mind space to think about other, more important things.
Life is so much easier, satisfying and enjoyable.
It is an incredible relief to finally end the life-long battle with food and your body that is costing you so much.
And we want that for you too.
We want to give you the gift of true food freedom in your own life. Because you CAN have it. No matter how messed up you think you are right now.
Your life does NOT have to include this obsession with food and your body.
You can be free. Confident. Happy. And relaxed in the presence of brownies.
You can focus on more meaningful life goals and feel at peace with food and your body while you pursue them.
