"I have been on so many diets in my lifetime. When starting my next new diet I would always feel a sense of hope and control with my eating. Inevitably, something would happen and I would get derailed which would make my eating spiral out of control again and I would feel awful about myself. I just didn't know how to eat anymore and I couldn't trust myself around food at all. I turned to working with Emily to help me find a better sense of how and what to eat, but what I found was so much more! When she introduced me to Intuitive Eating, it was so surprising to hear that what I was going through were the side effects from dieting! I feel so much better now and I am able to eat with so much more peace and joy! I never thought I'd be able to eat foods like bread, pasta, and pizza on a regular basis and not feel guilty or out of control when eating them! I am realizing the way I talk to myself matters too and I am learning how to respect my body more and more!"
"I feel like I’m kinder to myself and my hunger. I usually ignore what I want and shame myself if I want something that’s not entirely healthy. But lately, I’ve been thinking about what my body really wants to eat, what’s satisfying, what level of hunger I feel, and giving myself options—including previously banned foods—rather than completely denying myself  the things I want. It’s crazy! I never thought that actually having the foods I want in the house and allowing myself total freedom meant that my body would balance cravings on its own. I crave chocolate and mandarin. Carrots and chips. It feels like the more I become in-tune with my body the more I’m starting to trust it and the healthier my relationship with food is becoming. Food isn’t good or bad anymore, and I think I just needed someone to believe that I could have these foods around and have confidence that I would listen to my body, so thank you! I want to keep this up! "
"Before working with Emily, I never liked my body and was always comparing myself to others, because of that it caused me to restrict food, binge, then over exercise. I felt like I was a hamster on a wheel, with all the dieting and binging. I never thought it would be possible to have a neutral image of my body, I thought I was always going to dislike the way I looked, but now I don't really care what I look like. I have also started eating more and eating what I want without judgement. My biggest takeaway is people comment on your body because they are insecure, don't let their comments affect you."
"I had been introduced to the concept of intuitive eating nearly 17 years before I met Emily; however, I was not receptive to it and had made up my mind to pursue weight loss surgery instead. I lost a significant amount of weight after the surgery but gained most of the weight back over the last decade. A month prior to meeting Emily, I had made a conscious decision to never diet again.I had researched the HAES concept and intuitive eating, reading everything I could find on the subject, but felt interaction with a health practitioner would help me to more fully get comfortable with my decision.

Since working with Emily, I have a newfound sense of freedom around food. I never realized before that for nearly 40 years, food has occupied far too many of my thoughts throughout my days. I have been hopping from one diet or dieting fad to the next, counting calories, restricting certain foods, and the scale has determined when I would have a good or bad day. I was hungry and unhappy unless I was on a binge  and then I was ashamed. I no longer log every bite of food that goes into my mouth or weigh myself weekly anymore and there is no food that is off limits except kiwi (allergic) and milk (lactose intolerant). With the freedom to eat whatever I want whenever I want, there is no longer any urgency to fiercely control food. I eat when hungry and stop when full and I enjoy both preparing and eating my meals.

My biggest takeaway is that diets don’t work for me and I do not have to be controlled by any food or special exercise plan again. My weight is not the root cause of every problem that I have and I no longer have to accept that the only road to health and happiness for me is through successfully completing the latest diet trend. I am slowly becoming much more comfortable in my own body. It is fat and has certain aches and pains but I love it and am grateful for every day that I wake up and draw breath."
"Prior to working with Emily, I was very insecure about my body and struggled with disordered eating.  I would restrict certain foods and then binge. I also spent way too much time worrying about what my body looked like. I’m most proud of how far I’ve come in terms of not restricting my diet and eating a wide variety of foods. I’ve also been more in touch with my hunger levels and eat when my body needs it. My biggest takeaway is that my worth is not tied to what my body looks like or what diet I’m on."
