Today I want to talk to you about a very sensitive and challenging issue.
I see too many women in my life and work constantly struggling with food and their weight, and today, if you fall into this category, I want to talk to you…
I want to talk to those of you who are:
Constantly searching for the perfect diet,
and constantly falling off the perfect diet,
Constantly swinging between “this time I’ve got it,”
and “oh crap, I suck, I’ll never get this.
and always feeling “good” or “badly” about yourself,
depending on what fits in your closet, or how well you ate that day.
More than anything, I want to talk to those of you who feel like dieting or weight management are a full time job — think about how much more full your life would be, if food didn’t take up so much time and energy.
Isabel Foxen Duke, my friend and founder of Stop Fighting Food, is committed to helping women break out of this tiring cycle.
Unlike other food or body experts, Isabel doesn’t think this is an issue of will power or finding the right diet.
She spent years studying women’s behaviors with food, and discovered that it’s our beliefs and thoughts about food and weight that keep us stuck in the diet-binge cycle — and it’s in changing our thinking that we can find a way out.
I know it can feel like a lot. A little over a year ago, I was at my breaking point. I felt like an absolute lunatic with my food. I knew what to eat, and why I should eat, but for some reason or another, I couldn’t help but dream about chocolate all day long. I’d start a diet; it would go well until Friday. Friday night would come and my efforts would demolish. I’d let my guard down, and suddenly there was no stopping me. At this point, I was a health coach myself, and yet I couldn’t manage to get a grip on my own health.
All I wanted was to love my body, eat well, and nourish myself, but I couldn’t put the pieces together. Frustrated, and downright miserable, I turned to Isabel. Isabel did for me what dietitians, therapists, and eating disorders specialists couldn’t…she could relate to me. She was real with me. Honest. Sincere. She told me exactly what I needed to do to be a normal person around food, and even if I didn’t want to hear it, or do it, she pushed me to get it done.
If you’re over the diets and want to finally start thinking differently, you can check out Isabel’s free introductory video series here.
Isabel’s unique voice in the “emotional eating” space has helped thousands of women all over the world (even Ricki Lake is a fan!) and I’m personally a proud supporter of her work.
You don’t have to live your life clinging desperately to diets, only to end up with your fingers in a jar of Nutella at the end of the day
