Something to ponder...

Do you think this statement is fact or fiction?

"Weight loss is easy - its simply calories in and calories out, or is it?"

Before deciding, ask yourself the following questions:

  • How many diets have you tried in your lifetime?
  • How many kilos have you lost and regained?
  • Has this journey helped you enjoy your body more or less?
  • Do you have a happy, balanced and healthy relationship with food?

 

If diets haven't given all they have promised, then it is time to re-think them, and look at other ways to be healthy.

Health at Every Size is based on the simple premise that the best way to improve health is to honor your body. It supports people in adopting health habits for the sake of health and well-being (rather than weight control).

Health at Every Size encourages:

  • Accepting and respecting the natural diversity of body sizes
    and shapes.
  • Eating in a flexible manner that values pleasure and honors internal cues of hunger, satiety, and appetite.
  • Finding the joy in moving one’s body
    and becoming more physically vital.

Accredited Practising Dietitian

How do I transform my relationship with food?

By-

  • Becoming aware of your own body's weight management system (protein or carbohydrate – the big debate?)
  • Understanding your natural appetite and how this is affected by your food environment (What foods suit you better? how often do you need to eat?).
  • Recognising the relationship between lifestyle choices, body image and self esteem (How does the way you feel about your body affect your ability to live a healthy lifestyle?).
  • Understanding and resolving emotional eating patterns (Do you eat when you are stressed or bored or for some other reason?)

Discussing these issues with an emotionally sensitive, psychologically focussed
Dietitian will assist you in becoming as
healthy as possible.

Eating Patterns can express different emotions, what does yours indicate for you?

Comfort, Peace
Fear, Anxiety
Panic, Obsession
Terror, Shame

Women in particular often have unspoken and unresolved issues with weight, eating and body shape that can consume them daily. The ones who succeed in changing their relationship to food and their body, work with a practitioner who not only understands these issues, but can provide tools and strategies to transform them, so they no longer consume their lives. It can seem as women that our bodies are constantly changing, and it becomes exhausting trying to work out what is right for now. Wouldn’t it be lovely if we could be the healthiest possible, and love our body without the ongoing exhaustion.
 

Support for Children and Families

Support for Families

Children
Children are bombarded by confusing messages about food choices and their bodies, but teaching our children to be healthy without developing an unhealthy obsession with food or their bodies is probably the most important gift we can give them in today’s society. Depending on the age of the child support can be with the child and parents or just the parents.
          
If you are concerned that your child may be developing an unhealthy relationship with food, weight or body - then go to http://www.feedyourinstinct.com.au/ . This will enable you to assess your concerns and then work out what your next step can be.

Parents who address their own issues around food and their body are in a better position to help their children develop into confident, healthy adults.

Adults
At various times during our life we need extra support to manage our health and the demands of everyday living, whether we are raising a young family, dealing with adolescents or looking to be as healthy as possible in retirement. It doesn’t matter where you are in life, small changes with your eating can make a huge difference to your energy and health.

Trying to prioritise health when there are so many demands from work and family, can be very challenging. Often simple, yet effective changes, can be made to improve health with the guidance of an experienced Dietitian. Some men have the emotional eating issues that affect women, but more often they want simple, straightforward advice so they can pay more attention to what’s important for them.
