Module 1: Intuitive Eating vs. The Diet Mentality
Module 2: Removing the Barriers to Body Attunement
Most of us don’t realize how many diet rules we have internalized from diet culture! When certain foods are “bad” or off-limits, their value increases. This can lead to feeling out of control around certain foods (anyone feel like they’re addicted to sugar?). Making peace with food means recognizing that food is morally neutral. Giving yourself full permission to eat all foods can feel scary, which is why we are there to help. We want to help you learn how to challenge that nagging judgmental voice in your head that criticizes every food decision. We’ll talk about how to reframe your mindset so you can transform negative self-talk into positive self-talk, gratitude, and self-compassion.
Module 3: Cultivating Attunement - Hunger
Many diets teach you to “trick” your body out of hunger by drinking or eating high volume, low calorie foods. Others recommend only eating an arbitrary number of calories or portion size, with no connection to how your body really feels. While intentions may be good, any method of eating that forces you to rely on external cues, rather than your own body’s wisdom, is setting you up for disaster! We help you discover and honor your own unique internal hunger signals as a way to treat your body with respect
Module 4: Cultivating Attunement - Fullness + Satisfaction
This module, you’ll start to connect with the nuances of your physical sensations of fullness. Do you also ever find yourself seeking out more food even after you’ve eaten your “normal” meal? You may be physically filling your stomach, but that is not the same thing as feeling satisfied after a meal! Many chronic dieters feel like they can’t control themselves around food, simply because they’re never fully satisfied. We will explore what types of foods and eating environments you individually find most pleasurable. You’ll take a hard look at what might be stealing some of your satisfaction, and therefore making you crave more food in order to feel content.
Module 5: Emotional Eating + Emotional "Not-Eating"
Time to dive deep! You’ll start to identify how underlying feelings may affect what, when, and how you eat. Many of us use food as a coping mechanism, and while it’s not a sin to eat emotionally (that’s life!), making it your ONLY coping mechanism makes it really difficult to ever find joy in food. You’ll strengthen your self-care strategies and coping mechanisms so you can address what you REALLY need in stressful or emotional situations.
Module 6: Body Respect
Our culture sure does a good job of making us feel like our bodies are not good enough. Part of becoming an intuitive eater means treating your body with kindness and dignity. Diets that are started with the sole purpose of manipulating your weight take you out of your body and lead to disaster for most people. This week you’ll spend time practicing gratitude for your body and learning how to stop the comparison game. We’ll also review Health At Every principles to help provide some context for why many of us struggle with body image issues in the first place.
Module 7: True Wellness - Life-Giving Movement
Here we will help you shift from an exercise prescription model to a more internally driven guide to movement. Your body is smarter than you may think – it will tell you when, how much, and what type of movement it wants! You’ll explore mindful activity and break through some barriers you may have surrounding exercise.
Module 8: True Wellness - Redefining Nourishment
Once you’ve laid the groundwork with the previous 7 modules, you’ll be fully prepared to figure out what role nutrition plays in your life. Now that you view all foods as emotionally equivalent, you can freely pick and choose based on what sounds good to you, satisfies you, energizes you, and affirms your unique self-care practice.
