Unapologetic Eating 101

An intuitive eating course to free yourself from dieting and make peace

Imagine being able to eat what you want,

when you want, and how you want,

without second-guessing your decisions (or your body).

Imagine not spending so much time and energy

thinking about food and your body.

Imagine freedom.


Here's What Freedom Can Look Like:

image that says waking up in the morning and not immediately think about food or your weight
image that says ordering what sounds good at a restaurant instead of studying the menu in advance
image that says finally wearing a bikini on vacation no matter what size your body is
image that says being happy in your skin without having the constant thought of wanting to lose weight
image of ice cream with text that says keep ice cream in your freezer without worrying that you'll eat it all in one sitting
image that says eating when you're hungry, not just because it's 'time' to eat
image that says not stressing about eating dinner out multiple days in a row
image that says going to bed at night without running through a list of what you ate during the day

What if you could find that freedom with food and your body now, and not wait until the 'weight comes off'?

Are you ready to get free?

Unapologetic Eating 101 includes self-paced lessons on how to integrate intuitive eating, mindfulness, body image work, self-compassion, and coping tools into your day-to-day life.

The course is designed to help you improve your relationship to food, reconnect to your body, and find freedom from the “shoulds” and “supposed tos”, so you can figure out what it is that YOU really want (rather than what society's told you to have).

Unapologetic Eating Can get you there:

  • Eating what you want, when you want, and how you want without second-guessing your body or feeling guilty or ashamed.
  • Being in the moment with what you are eating, and what you are doing, without feeling self-conscious or worrying about what others may be thinking.
  • Getting back to your roots, to who you were before society told you who you should be.

Unapologetic Eating is about food freedom, and it’s also about freedom in life.

The more you trust your body with food, the more you begin to trust yourself and your decisions in all the other areas of your life.


because you deserve to eat - and live...

Hi there,

I’m Alissa Rumsey, MS, RD.

I’m a registered dietitian, certified intuitive eating counselor, food and body liberation coach, and the author of Unapologetic Eating.

I've spent years working with individual clients, helping them get free from diet culture and the endless dieting cycle so they can reconnect to themselves and their bodies and find food freedom.

I created Unapologetic Eating 101 so that you can learn about intuitive eating and the non-diet approach, utilize the practical resources and tools I've developed to integrate what you're learning into your day-to-day life, and do it all in a flexible, affordable, go-at-your-own-pace style course.

Because I want to help you get free from the shame and pain of dieting and diet culture, so you can live your most unapologetic, liberated life.

Imagine if you Could...

  • Move away from dieting and attempts to “fix” yourself or your body (so you have more time for all of the other, more important things).
  • Get out of the diet-binge-restrict cycle: never again feel like you’ve fallen 'off the wagon'. (Hint: there is no wagon!)
  • Reconnect with your inner wisdom so you can figure out how to eat based upon your body cues, rather than any external rules and restrictions.
  • Learn to trust yourself around all foods (yes, even chips and ice cream) so that food no longer has control over you.
  • Reframe your inner self-critical thoughts (hello food police!) so that you’re not constantly battling yourself in your head.
  • Cultivate more mindfulness so you can create space to shift your mindset and your responses to your environment.
  • Learn how to be kind and compassionate to yourself, so you can dissolve the shame (stop that downward shame spiral in its tracks!).
  • Decide what to eat and when to exercise from a place of self-kindness and self-care, rather than self-control, shame, or guilt.
  • Develop a whole toolbox full of self-care and coping tools, to use when things get uncomfortable (which they will - it’s part of the process!) so you can keep moving forward on your journey.
  • Improve your body image and feel more comfortable and confident in your body, no matter what size you are. 
  • Connect more deeply to yourself and discover who it is underneath all of the things that society has put on you.

This is why I created the course.
