Have you heard of a ‘weight neutral’ approach? At Ignite, we practice in a Health at Every Size® paradigm, with a weight neutral approach. In this post, we will explain…
WHO IS IT FOR?
Nourished Life Counselling is for those who are frustrated with dieting and ready to discover what a peaceful relationship with food feels like. Right now, you may feel out of control around food and experience emotional or stress eating. Maybe you have done every diet out there and feel at a loss of what to do next as each dieting attempt has ended with defeat.
WHAT IS IT?
Nourished Life Counselling uses the principles from a framework called Intuitive Eating. Intuitive Eating is a self-care journey of learning to reconnect with your innate hunger and satiety cues, while learning to identify where diet culture has led you astray when it comes to nutrition. Intuitive Eating is an evidence-based way of honouring all aspects of our health. We work in a weight neutral approach, including some principles of Health At Every Size ® (HAES) to untangle deeply held beliefs around weight, health, and nutrition to discover what a nourished life means to you.
HOW IS IT DIFFERENT?
Nourished Life Counselling and Intuitive Eating is not a weight-loss diet, although your desires for weight loss are something that we will unpack, explore where they came from, and cultivate compassion for. Nourished Life counselling infuses principles of mindfulness, body acceptance, interoceptive awareness, and self-compassion.
