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.
Here's What Freedom Looks Like:
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.
