Throw away the scales with the non-diet


If you’ve ever struggled with weight or body shape insecurities, you will most likely have tried various diets. Whether they involve counting calories, detoxing, avoiding certain foods or even whole food groups, diets always offer big promises but inevitably fail to give you long-lasting results.

So what if there was a diet where you could enjoy food, feel happy and healthy, and throw away the scales? Well unfortunately there isn’t, but there is something that can offer all those things, which is why we call it the Non-Diet!

The Non-Diet Approach is increasingly being used by Dietitians, Psychologists and Doctors to help clients achieve better health without dieting. As well as helping to achieve a healthy, comfortable weight, the non-diet approach has been shown to help lower cholesterol and blood pressure, decrease body dissatisfaction, and increase fitness levels.

So what does the Non-Diet approach involve? First and foremost, it shuns the myth that body size and shape defines a person. We come in all shapes and sizes, and despite what the weight loss industry would have you believe, your size and shape does not determine your health.

In fact, good physical and mental health is achieved by respecting and taking care of the body you have, exactly as it is! Rather than focusing on external influences, the nondiet approach helps you look inward to reconnect with your internal body cues, and in doing so, shift from a mindset of needing to change or fix your body, to one of self-nurture and care.

The non-diet approach gives you the skills to eat mindfully and intuitively, reconnect with your body’s natural feelings of hunger and fullness, and find fun and enjoyable forms of body movement. Build skills and confidence in your own innate ability to select appropriate foods for your body in appropriate amounts.

Ditch the dieting rollercoaster ride that almost certainly results in weight regain and try the Non-Dieting Approach to achieve positive outcomes for your health, mind and body.
