Taking an "All Foods Fit" Approach to Health Conditions with Lindsay Sarson
Intuitive Eating, the un-dieted way of making peace with food, and your body is all about trusting your body to seek health by honouring your individual hunger, fullness and satisfaction.
For those who live with a health condition, food intolerance or nutritional disease, however, intuitive eating can seem like an impossible luxury – only available to those who are able to “eat whatever they want”. At the same time living with a health condition is often accompanied by strict dietary guidelines that can leave the person feeling deprived, restricted and powerless.
Our guest today understands these feelings as she has lived with Type 1 Diabetes since the age of 9. Her life of restriction and quest to be healthy kept her on the diet cycle for years, struggling with body image and a disordered relationship with food and exercise.
Now as a Registered Holistic Nutritionist, Lindsay has discovered how intuitive eating is accessible to all and can help those with health conditions develop autonomy while respecting their body and health. Her all foods fit approach has allowed her and her clients to move beyond dieting into a peaceful and trusting relationship with their bodies.
What you’ll learn by listening:
- the dangers of dieting/health extremes especially for those of us living with health conditions –
- How those with health conditions find themselves feeling trapped in the dieting/ “healthy lifestyle” cycle
- Why we need to look at health beyond the physical to incorporate our mental, emotional, and spiritual wellbeing.
- What is an all foods fit approach, how adopting it can help you cultivate autonomy and body respect
- How intuitive eating is applicable to all
