After years of being steeped in the diet mentality and working from a weight-centric approach, I believe that diets do not work. Diets rob you of your autonomy and lead only to frustration and obsession. But, it is possible to reject the diet mentality and get your life back.
I grew up in the 1980s when fat was the villain. My father always struggled with food and his weight. He was always trying to lose weight through restrictive diets. But none of those efforts worked and he passed away when I was 10 years old after his fourth heart attack.
I decided I wanted to be a dietitian to help people who struggled with food like my father. After several years in the field I began working in bariatric surgery. I watched as people would make the changes I suggested and lose some weight but most of them were not successful in maintaining the weight loss. Their lives were spent chasing after a lower number on the scale. I felt helpless and thought I was losing my passion for nutrition and dietetics.
I then came across the Intuitive Eating audiobook and everything clicked. I went on to create the TRUST Method which is based on the Intuitive Eating framework. This process will transform your mindset and relationship to food, body, and movement. You will finally be able to live the life of your dreams, focusing on improving your health through self-care not restriction.
