Intuitive Eating 6 Month Program

Welcome! This program is for you if you are completely new to intuitive eating or if you have tried to read the intuitive eating book but just cannot quite get through it because of overwhelm or frustration.

This program will give you an step-by-step course and the 1:1 support you need to becoming an intuitive eater!

During this 6 month program you will:

  • learn about the intuitive eating principles using videos, real life examples and learning exercises

  • learn and practice mindfulness exercises each week using a recorded mindful eating meditation 

  • use worksheets so that you can implement the intuitive eating principles and concepts into your life in a structured and organized way

  • be kept on track with your learning by automated prompts and monthly accountability appointments

I want a better relationship with food so that I can stop spending so much time and energy on diets.

I'm ready to heal my relationship with food to start living a less stressful and more connected life.

Step 1: Apply for the program

Step 2: I will contact you to arrange a 30 minute call

Step 3: Start on your path to self acceptance, leaving dieting behind and start to create a vibrant and nourished life.

A mindset shift from dieting to nourishment isn't a quick fix. It takes time. In our first meeting we will have a full comprehensive assessment (60 minutes) so that I can get to know all about you.

 

During this initial appointment you will have the opportunity to discuss your dieting history, stress, movement and food challenges.

 

After your initial session we will meet twice monthly for 6 months to work on goals, discuss readings/ education items from your course and work through any difficulties you are having with food, your body and dieting thoughts.  You will also have full access to message me (via Practice Better App) at any time during the program. 

 

The second part of this program is access to a 10 module online self-study intuitive eating course. You will watch recorded videos (of yours truly) going through each of the concepts of intuitive eating. There are worksheets, tasks and assigned readings to keep you progressing in your learning about intuitive eating concepts. 

Imagine a life where you could make food choices, eat and not feel any guilt or stress! 

Instead of constantly stressing about food, imagine instead nourishing your body and have energy for your work day.

 

After work you could still have the energy for the fun parts of life like playing with your kids or heading off to your favorite dance class!

 

This is possible and the intuitive eating framework can help you to heal your relationship with food and regain actual control over what and how much you are eating.

I used to spend hours counting calories, logging my food into a fitness app, meal planning and stressing over what and how much to eat.  All these food rules and dieting behaviors caused me to be distracted,  kinda moody (yikes), disconnected and always seeking the next best "wellness diet."

This pursuit of health and wellness was actually creating the opposite of health! It was SO stressful!

 

It was finally when I said YES to accepting my body, learning how to eat intuitively that now...well life is so much more fulfilling and in alignment.  The intuitive eating framework allowed me to let to of food rules, allow ALL foods into my diet and create healthy food choices based on self care and not judgment or criticism.  

I can now focus on ALL the things in life that fill me up including my business, friendships, my relationship and so much more!  

Frequently asked questions

Program Details

What happens if I go on vacation or I'm sick for a few weeks?


You can put your program on hold for up to 4 weeks during the 6 months. I know life is busy and stuff happens! I want you to be successful so I will work with you to ensure you have the time and space in your life to work on your program.




If I start the program and it doesn't seem to be a good fit, can I cancel?


Yes, you can cancel your program at any time. You will not be refunded for any payments already made but you will not be charged for furuther month payments after the date of cancellation. To cancel simply email me at info@theambitiousrd.com.

It is your responsibility to schedule, cancel and rebook your appointments according to your schedule. I have an easy online scheduling system which you can access at any time. Cancellation is requested 24 hours in advance for appointments.





Personal Details

I still have a goal to lose weight, is this program for me?


Yes! You can learn how to start to learn about intuitive eating and still have the goal to lose weight. However, this is important: there does have to be a desire for you to a switch from focusing on weight/dieting. During our work together I will ask you to put your weight loss goal on the back burner while you shift your focus. You do have to be committed to putting your weight loss goal on "pause" because actively pursuing weight loss can interfere with your ability to connect to your body and embody intuitive eating. Learning about intutive eating is not simply about food but it is also about exploring your own fat phobia, weight stigma you may have experienced, reasons why you want to lose weight and how to make the shift to a weight neutral and more body positive approach.




If I have an eating disorder and I'm not in recovery yet, is this program for me?


If you have a diagnosed eating disorder and are receiving active recovery treatments this program is not for you..yet! Once you have received formal eating disorder treatment and feel stable in your recover then this program might be a good fit for you. The reason for this is that if you have an eating disorder you may not be able to trust your body's cues yet until you are in recovery. Let me know about where you are at in your recovery and I can let you know if this program will be the right fit or not quite yet.




Can I process my insurance claim?


Most health spending accounts and group insurance programs will cover the cost of up to around $500.00 for Dietitian services. So check your benefits to find out if you have coverage.
