If you're sick of your life feeling defined by what you're eating or not eating, or wishing you could feel more "normal" around food, we'd love to help guide you towards more flexibility and compassion around food and your body.
WHO IS THE
FOOD + BODY
🍕You are tired of obsessing over calories, food rules, wellness diets
🥦 You want to learn how to eat in a way that honors your body and mind
🍟You're confused about all the "nutrition noise" and what a healthy relationship with food even is
♡You're open to challenging your beliefs and practicing body kindness and body respect
🫂 You want to connect with others who are similarly tired of diet culture and ready to make peace with food and body
🍪 You're curious about intuitive eating or and want to deepen your understanding and implementation of it
🛋️ You're looking for a group space with professional guidance and peer support
We are Health At Every Size® (HAES®)-aligned providers committed to size inclusivity
and rejecting diet culture
who we are:
We are a group of one therapist and two dietitians who believe there's so much more life available to us when we ditch the diet mentality, care for our bodies without the noise of rules and trendy ways of eating, and challenge the narratives we hold about our self-worth being based on the size and shape of our body.
There's a saying that how you eat is how you do everything.
We want to help your relationship with food feel more flexible, intuitive, and caring. Because maybe your self-talk and relationship with everything else can soften, too, as a result.
Over the 5-week group session, we will guide you in exploring your relationship with food and your body.
We'll help you challenge rules and fears, adopt healthier thoughts around food, practice compassion and care for your body, learn how to eat more intuitively and flexibly, and guide you towards letting go of the beliefs you hold about your body.
All with weekly group support from folks going through a similar experience.

a little about intuitive eating
Intuitive eating is not a diet or a lifestyle plan.
It's how we were born to eat—how we're meant to eat.
Intuitive eating is an approach to eating that guides you back towards your intuition and the deep care and internal trust you hold towards your self and your body. Before diet and wellness culture created so much anxiety, shame, obsession, and rigidity around eating.
Research studies have shown that intuitive eaters experience improved psychological health, including decreased disordered eating behaviors, improved body image, and a healthier relationship with food, as well as improved health outcomes without a focus on weight, size, or shape.
Intuitive eating is about rejecting diet culture, satiating hunger rather than trying to suppress it, attuning to your body, and learning to seek pleasure from eating experiences rather than experiencing intense feelings of shame and guilt.
Through group collaboration, discussion, and take-home prompts, this group will help you redefine your relationship with food and body from contention to a place of trust, flexibility, and care.
