[One sentence summary of what RF is]
I created Reframing Food to show you how to fundamentally reframe the way you nourish yourself and help you get off of the weight loss roller coaster, for good – without requiring you to spend the rest of your life following a rigid program to maintain it.
Rigidly structuring, planning, and restricting your relationship with food works in the short term (and is, indeed, a good way to lose weight initially), but many of the strategies we cling to during maintenance only address the symptoms of unhealthy eating patterns, rather than the core issues that created those default patterns in the first place - making them inherently unsustainable.
You don’t need to weigh, measure, count calories, or excessively restrict/prepare your meals. When you learn to reframe the way you feed yourself, what’s left is simply living your life.
Don’t get me wrong, it isn’t easy. You’ve got to have the curiosity to take an honest look at yourself, the self-compassion to regard yourself with love no matter what you find, and the courage to embrace the discomfort of pushing yourself through your internal barriers, again and again. It isn’t easy - but it is worth it.
When you understand the biological and emotional drives that brought you to where you were, and how to meet the needs of those aspects of your physiology in a healthy, sustainable way, you stop battling against yourself and find peace - naturally, and almost without conscious effort.
- Learning which foods nourish you - and which don’t.
- Some of us are predisposed to be affected by foods that have addictive properties. (Spoiler: these foods are sugar and flour, primarily.) You’ll learn how these foods affect you and decide where they fit in your life - or don’t - on that basis.
- You’ll also learn how to heal your gut and balance your blood sugar, through this exploration (It’s really tough to get healthy without getting this piece right.)
- Reframing food and fundamentally altering the way you nourish yourself.
- Did you know that food activates similar hormonal responses in you to a number of other things - such as listening to music, taking a bath, and connecting with a friend?
- This is where the real shift occurs. You’ll replace coping mechanisms - shifting from food to other forms of nourishment - so that you no longer rely on food emotionally.
- Creating minimal, easy-to-maintain structures and habits that work for you and your life.
- A little bit of structure optimizes your willpower reserves, and makes making good decisions easier for you. Some examples might include making the same breakfast every morning, or cutting out a food group that you notice is always a problem for you.
- We’ll also implement a few motivation hacks and do some psychological rewiring to support you on your journey.
