The Emotional Rollercoaster the Scale Puts You On

While trying to lose weight, things go great until they don’t go so great. You see a down trend in your weight & it makes you feel all happy, but then the next time you check your weight, the number goes up & you start to feel awful about yourself. It’s an emotional roller coaster. Even when you are “happy” because you’ve lost weight, you might feel like it’s not good enough which just makes you feel worse. Continue Reading
How to be Self-Compassionate

We've all probably experienced negative thoughts about ourself at some point or another. What you may have noticed is when you have these negative thoughts, it leads to a downward spiral or snowball effect into more negative thoughts which cloud your mind, make your feel worse and may also affect your behaviors and actions to become self-destructive in nature (i.e. more binge eating, emotional eating or self-isolation). Continue Reading

The Real Reasons Why Calorie Tracking isn't Getting You to Your Goals

Calorie tracking seems to be the gold standard for weight loss, but I see a lot of things that are wrong with it.

I have been a dietitian for almost 3 years. During my first year I aimed to find practical ways to help clients lose weight based on what I was taught in school.

In my 3rd year I chose to take a different approach for most of my clients and I noticed a profound difference.  That approach was called Intuitive Eating and Health at Every Size. Now, I pledge never to help someone intentionally lose weight ever again. Here's why. Continue Reading
How I Healed My Relationship with Exercise

I used to dread any form of exercise and never felt coordinated enough to do any type of sports, but I forced myself to do it anyways as a means to control my weight. I told myself I had to burn a certain number of calories before I could stop exercising.  To make up for certain foods I had eaten I would run outside in extreme weather. Sit ups were part of my regular routine because I dreamed of having a flat stomach.  None of it made me feel better about myself. In fact, I was miserable. Continue Reading

Are You Eating Enough?

One of the most common issues I see people face with their food intake is not having enough of it. It may sound strange considering that the media and public health campaigns have blasted the message that “Americans need to move more and eat less…or else!” Unfortunately, I’ve seen this message get taken out of context or taken a little too seriously. This can have many consequences and often backfires against the individual’s health goals. Continue Reading
