How can I stop dieting and eat normally?
People come to us after many years of being on a diet rollercoaster. They seem to be "chasing the dragon" of their early weight loss "success", but find no matter what they do, they cannot maintain a particular body size. If you tried any other solution to a problem that ultimately always failed you, you would hopefully stop trying that trap.
Are you hiding what you eat from your partner or family?
Are you avoiding intimacy because you are uncomfortable with your body?
Do you find your mood to be largely based on how you feel you've eaten or how you feel you look?
You may be feeling shame around food and body to the point it is affecting your quality of life. You may be surrounded by friends and family who are always on diets and encourage you to diet, too. Maybe your mother is always trying to be helpful by suggesting the next new thing. It can be hard to find peace with food, and we understand that struggle.
