DONUT CHANGE HOW YOU EAT BECAUSE OF DIET CULTURE
Trust your body. It is magnificent — and it knows what it’s doing! Take it from me, Dr. Amy Porto, your anti-diet registered dietitian, nutrition professor, and intuitive eating counselor.
What If …
Imagine having the freedom to eat anything you wanted.
What if you had permission to eat the foods you enjoy? Or you could eat for satisfaction and pleasure — not restricting what you really wanted because of someone else’s rules? The bigger question is … why is having to “imagine the freedom to eat what you want” even a thing?
Well, it’s likely because you’ve heard the following at some point in your life:
Ultimate health goals start with losing weight or being a certain size or “taking control over your eating” in one restrictive form or another.
Healthy eating means “clean eating” or finding the right system or program that takes the guesswork out of choosing your meals.
Eating healthy is a lifestyle, not a diet (something I could rant about all day because this still includes adopting food rules and reinforces restrictive behaviors that keep you stuck in a cycle of dieting).
Here Is The Truth
The diet industry needs you to be a repeat customer.
So, they play on every insecurity that society’s beauty and health standards have embedded into our lives (otherwise known as diet culture).
Then, they offer you a solution that is always too good to be true.
A magic fat loss pill. An “eat only this” system, like no carbs, no sugar, only high protein diets. A miracle to shed weight, like fasting or liquid-only diets.
And while some of these so-called solutions may work in the short-term, the key word is “short-term.”
What they’re feeding you (pun intended) are manufactured products (and oftentimes gimmicks) to keep you coming back for more.
I’m not good with that — you shouldn’t be either.
I have a better idea.
How about we get off the diet roller coaster and into a better relationship with food?
How about we learn to trust our bodies again so we can feel confident about what we want to eat?
How about we work toward living in a world where we’re not held hostage by health and diet fads?
That’s the dream, and I’m here to help.
