You probably attempted to lose weight by restrictive dieting: Cutting carbs, slashing calories, crash dieting, etc. You likely used fear, self-hatred, and shame to motivate you..
And let me guess: It didn't work.
Here's the truth: We gain weight when we are completely disconnected from our bodies: When we eat past fullness, emotionally eat, and don't nourish ourselves optimally.
Diets further disconnect you from your bodies. How can a solution that's based in fear, shame, and disconnection possibly be the solution to feeling good in your skin?
Restrictive dieting rarely works long-term because it's unsustainable, you never learn anything about nutrition, PLUS you never deal with the real issues causing you to overeat: Stress, emotions, boredom, and more.
The diet always ends in a giant binge when you can't stick to it any longer...
And when you fail over and over again, you lose trust in yourself.
You beat yourself up, and stay trapped in the cycle of shame, guilt, frustration...
...And you end up gaining weight, not losing it.
