The health and fitness industry tells us that weight loss IS health, that dieting IS health, that marching to the scale every morning is just a normal part of it. Want to be part of the fitness crowd? The health and wellness crowd? GREAT. Now, just fall in line, count your calories, and weigh yourself often just make sure you’re doing it right. Right?
Sometimes putting weight loss on the back burner is one of the most HEALING things you can do for yourself. Healthy…healing… HEAL. Do you see the trend? THIS IS WHAT IS IMPORTANT.
There’s a whole host of stuff that goes wrong when we’re dieting all the time. Not to mention- who even knew that women had another option besides weight loss?
Well, I’m here to tell you- there are countless other options for you, your health, & your mental and emotional sanity. And there’s also a bit of a problem when you’re dieting all of the time.
Ever wonder what the effects of constantly dieting are?
Sure, in last week’s we talked about how restricting calories will inevitably lead to a binge- but outside of that, what else are the ramifications of chronically dieting? A WHOLE BUNCH!
We dive on into just the most surface level damaging effects of chronically dieting.

For a long, long, long time- I called myself a weight loss coach. It was on every website, every tagline, and every business card that I had.
What a freakin’ disservice!
Being a weight loss coach is simple. Get women to eat less calories than they’re currently eating. BOOM. Magic. Even more magical would be calling it a cute name and tying it off with a bow.
Let me be clear that I am not anti-weight loss or anti-health. But tell women to stop focusing ONLY on weight loss? And they lose their damn minds. Tell women to let go of dieting forever? FORGET ABOUT IT.
Intuitive eating is gaining some popularity now. And people are either for it, or against it. If you’re against intuitive eating? You just don’t know what it entails yet. The women who are trying out intuitive eating and thinking it doesn’t work? Aren’t quite there yet.
Intuitive eating is quite literally engrained within us. We’ve been eating intuitively since the day we were born. The only reason we’ve lost the ability to eat intuitively is because of a fatphobic and diet-centric society that has taught us otherwise. Whether it’s our parents’ beliefs around food and weight, or our friends, or good ol’ social media.
It’s time to reconnect with yourself. This episode will shed some light on just a few of the misconceptions surrounding intuitive eating.
AND GUESS WHAT?!
I’m opening up a BRAND NEW small-group coaching group for 9 women who are sick of dieting all the damn time.

The first 5 women to register save $99.
Registration ends Friday, October 19th unless spots fill before then.

You know how the fitness industry has totally ruined exercise for most people?
Like, if you don’t want or will never have a 6-pack, what’s the point, right?
Or, if you’re sick and tired of only exercising when you’re trying to lose weight- what’s the point, right? Well, I hope this episode rekindles your love- or sparks the first ever fire under your butt to get you to exercise- specifically, strength training.
There are countless benefits to exercise that have NOTHING to do with weight loss. And honestly? Any weight loss that comes with working out is just the cherry on top
