SO WHAT IS IT?
This program is a Registered Dietitian led, 8 week class meeting once a week as a small group in Louisville starting in September. There will also be a second option for a once a week virtual class held starting in September as well. The program follows the evidence based “ Intuitive Eating” approach to nutrition and health. The price for 8 weeks is $250 until 8/1 and will then increase to $300 after 8/1. Please join the interest list above and I will contact you with exact date and answer any questions you may have.
SO WHAT IS IT?
Food freedom is NOT another diet, it is not another set of rules; there will be no weigh ins. Diets do not address personal food preferences, or the underlying reasons that drive our food choices. All diets “work” in the short term, but over time rules about what you can and can’t eat lead to intense feelings of deprivation, powerful cravings that lead to overeating. It is well established that Yo-Yo dieting leads to negative health outcomes.
This Program Can Help You…..
Learn strategies, other than eating, to cope with common emotions like boredom, stress and, anxiety. Food does not fix those things…… discover tools that can be helpful.
Feel calmer around food rather than swinging between rigid food rules and out-of-control eating
Trust that you can eat ALL foods, even those that seem "off-limits"
Learn to reconnect with your internal cues of hunger and fullness and begin to understand and address non hunger reasons for eating
Enjoy feeling satisfied after eating rather than uncomfortably full or not full enough where you feel like you are thinking about food ALL the time. You cannot get satisfaction from food when there is guilt involved, learn to put an end to this.
Get pleasure and satisfaction from food and eating so that you are not constantly foraging to get satisfaction
Sort out nutrition recommendations and learn evidence-based information from long term studies and the practical application in your daily life.
Get active and feel the difference. Shift the focus on how exercise makes you feel rather than simply the calorie burning effect of exercise with strategies to do so.
