The Grass is Greener on the Other Side Of Diet Culture

Health matters. And if you want to improve yours, you can, by engaging in healthy behaviors like increasing the nutritional content of your food, managing stress, engaging socially, and moving your body.

But diet culture has given us a false definition of health that promotes weight monitoring, food restriction, excessive exercise, and tying self-worth to appearance, which is not healthy at all!

When we internalize these messages, they can trap us in an endless hustle for worth, tied to appearance, and disrupt our natural eating patterns, while causing weight, health, and body image struggles.

If you're struggling with disordered eating, it's a sign that diet culture got into your head and it is interfering with your appetite and health.

And what you need isn't more willpower or another diet strategy, but support to heal from the toxic definition of health that misleads us into disorder. There is a non-dieting approach to health that involves attuning to your body and caring for it emotionally and nutritionally. And it can help you improve your health, energy, sleep, and mood without waging war on yourself.

If you're struggling, reach out because the grass is greener on the other side of diet culture.

At Non-Dieting Health, we offer therapeutic methods including quick-shift psychotherapy, neurofeedback brainwave training, and nutrition support that work deep in the body and mind to regulate emotions, mood, and appetite, supporting healthy eating patterns, weight, and body image. If you'd like to know more, contact us for a free 15-minute consult.
