After years of struggling with food, my body size, feeling completely addicted to certain foods, and struggling with emotional binge eating I finally had had ENOUGH. I decided that I was not going to lose another second of my life to worrying about how many calories were in my lunch, whether or not that apple slice bumped me out of ketosis, or how I could perfectly measure out my portions if I was out to eat without my portion control containers with me.
It was a scary decision to make and honestly, at the start, I had no idea how I was going to achieve such a feat! But here I am 2.5 years later and I barely give much thought to what I eat anymore. I eat mainly nutrient dense foods while still enjoying my favourite soul foods like pizza, chips, and donuts when I fancy them (which is actually much less often than I ever thought I would!)
I am a completely confident intuitive eating (if you don’t really know what intuitive eating is – it essentially teaches you how to have a healthy relationship with food and your body..) We all are born intuitive eaters, but then diet culture’s messages in society about large bodies being bad and certain foods being bad take us away from our natural intuitive eating abilities.
It took me almost 2 years to get to the point of being a confident intuitive eater and I realized that it did not have to take me THAT long. If only I had a bit more guidance, support, accountability, and coaching I feel like I could have reached that point much sooner. So, I wanted to create a program that would help people get from that dieting breaking point to being a completely confident intuitive eater in a much shorter time frame and that brings us to here!

This week is all about diving into rejecting the diet mentality. We will go over some studies that prove that diets don’t work, and why they don’t. We will also debunk a lot of beliefs that we have and learn how being in a larger body does not automatically mean that you are unhealthy. We will discuss sneaky diet culture, how to spot it, and how to avoid it. This week is all about debunking all the mainstream beliefs around food and body and really setting you up for success through the rest of the program.
This week you will learn how to make peace with food and give yourself unconditional permission to eat all foods by diving into why this is important for food freedom in the first place. We will be discovering our “forbidden foods” and diving into learning to finally enjoy those foods. We also will be learning how to recognize mental restriction & what to do when it arises and we will talk about habituation (what happens once you have full permission to eat all foods for good).
This week is a deep dive into all the beliefs about food and your body that you have picked up from diet culture over the years. I’m going to teach you some techniques to help separate yourself from these beliefs and thoughts and what to do when they arise. You will also “meet” your inner food voices – both the unhelpful and helpful ones – and learn how to combat the unhelpful ones. I’m going to help you recognize your personal food rules and help you to dismantle these.
This week is all about learning to become more in tune with your body’s natural hunger cues. I’m going to teach you how to recognize hunger at an earlier stage (before it becomes a ravenous state) and also help to come up with ways in which you can avoid becoming ravenous throughout the day. We will also discuss how hunger levels naturally will fluctuate from day to day and week to week. This week is where the true intuitive eating starts to happen.
This week we follow last week up with now getting more in touch with your fullness sensations. Recognizing what stage of fullness is the optimal stage for you to know you’ve had enough to eat. We’ll discuss barriers to recognizing fullness as well as the many factors that influence fullness. We also dive into the importance of satisfaction this week and I will be providing you some tools to help you recognize what it is you really want to eat at any given time. You’ll learn how to enjoy food to it’s fullest – which is key in achieving food freedom!
This week we will be discussing emotional eating and learn ways in which to cope with our feelings without using food. I’ll help you to get to the root of why you may be emotionally eating, or emotionally overeating and help you to break free of these habits. We will even dive in and question if it truly is emotional eating – there are many other reasons you may be turning to food – this week we figure all that out.
This week is all about exercising in a way that feels good and respecting your body. At this point, we will have already learned quite a bit in terms of body respect, but this week we dive even deeper into this along with how to cultivate a healthy relationship with exercise. I will teach you about mindful exercise and how to experience gratitude in your body, even if you can’t imagine yourself loving your body right now. We will also discuss potential barriers to physical activity and how to handle them should they arise.
In the last week of this program, we will talk a bit about nutrition – tips on how to actually eat to feel your best. I am not giving you any sort of meal plans or anything, but just some general guidelines to follow. At this point, you will be in touch with how certain foods make you feel and you’ll be comfortable with eating all foods, but you may be left wanting a little extra guidance on how to eat and that’s what this week will teach you.
