My husband brought home doughnuts for a fun surprise. And I ate some. WITH NO GUILT.
Here’s a mind blowing concept: every single food that exists is guilt free!
Did you know that having guilt, stress and anxiety over the foods you eat can make you gain more weight than just enjoying your food?
Stop participating in the diet fads and start listening to your body. Regain trust with it and promise your body that you’ll never neglect it again.
And stop feeling guilty over eating! Guilt and shame do not belong with your relationship to food or your body.

An I-don’t-feel-like-cooking breakfast kinda morning 🌥
If you are transitioning into intuitive eating a really important factor is having access to 1) enough food that 2) you consider to be “acceptable.” & by “acceptable” I mean foods that you actually find satisfying and enjoy. Have you ever opened your fridge/pantry and while there is definitely food in both you think to yourself “ugh there’s nothing to eat - I need to make a trip to the store.” Food is available, but maybe not foods you find to be “acceptable” or satisfying to what you may feel like in the moment.
An example I’m thinking of for this is with milk 🥛 I personally cannot stand the taste of regular milk - but I keep it stocked in the house bc my boys don’t like the taste of my soy milk or almond milk and milk is definitely a staple in our house - we use it a lot in coffee 😍 with cereal, or just for drinking so it’s always on my grocery list.
My breakfast this morning consisted of other staples that I always have on hand; yogurt / fruits / nuts & seeds / some sort of sweet bar-type thing (sometimes I stock biscotti, graham crackers, this week I felt like something softer so I went for the @traderjoes 5-seed almond bars). These are foods I like for breakfasts, snacks, or additions to my meals/ recipes so I like to always have them on hand.
To sum this all up- my nutrition tip today is to provide yourself with foods you find acceptable - it’s a great way to care for yourself and prioritize your needs with eating. Happy Saturday 💕 -Nat

Let's teach our children how to love and respect their bodies through mindful, intentional, intuitive eating.

Repost @foodpeacedietitian

Eating, without dieting, is body respect. It is respecting your biology, physiology, and needs.

Being able to freely eat and nourish your body in the ways that your body is asking for is treating your body with respect.

It is easy to get pulled into black and white thinking about health, lifestyle changes, and dieting, and it is really challenging to practice Food Peace without letting there be a gray area.

What is thin privilege?
It’s the benefit of the doubt about your hygiene habits, your levels of energy, your dating acceptability, your eating choices, our commitment to public health.
It means clothing is cheap and accessible, that doctors don’t assume you avoid fruits and vegetables, that public seating won’t bruise your hips, that strangers don’t feel compelled to share how much weight they’ve lost and offer to give you tips on the regular.
It does not mean that life is a cakewalk or free from troubles.
It does mean, however, that the culture around you is built to accommodate you more than your fat neighbor.
It does not mean that you do not care deeply for your fat friends.
It does mean that your daily experience of this world is vastly different from theirs, most likely.
If you want to use your privilege to help your fat friends (instead of ignoring or denying it), you can:
1. Speak about bodies (esp. your own) with neutral or encouraging language.
2. Let yourself and your thin friends know that fat is not a feeling; it is a daily reality that affects fat people b/c of fat shaming and structural discrimination and implicit anti-fat bias.
3. Share about thin privilege and fat shaming on your social media and let us know that you are on the journey of using your privilege for others.

MOST IMPORTANTLY: fill your feed and your daily life with people of girth! We are valuable and funny and insightful and good friends and good lovers and good people to know and delight in and share life with and learn from.
4. Listen and Amplify fat people

Did you know that the plants of the little chia seeds grow up to two meters, with lovely lavender colored flowers?! Just sprouted them end of November last year out of curiosity. They are half a meter tall now.

Love this from @dietitiananna. What about your body can you make room to accept when you drop the struggle of fighting against it?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
REPOST VIA @dietitiananna

Your body is not something that you need to “improve.” It is not a before or an after. It is a right now. Reject the concept that diet culture presents suggesting that your life will be greatly enhanced if you fight against your body. It won’t.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
At any given moment, more is going right for your body than is not.

Today. Everyday. Always.
Let it be.

Our history of beauty has gone from one end of the spectrum to the other!
This is a vintage ad from a magazine from the 1950s. Can you imagine seeing something today encouraging women to gain weight in order to be more beautiful?
But the problem we have in today’s society is mirrored in this ad from the 50s: both are encouraging women to think that there is something wrong with their body. We’re taught to enter a rat race where we’re constantly chasing the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow with promises of how much better our lives will be once we look the way society has dictated.

Both of the women pictured are beautiful. EVERYBODY is beautiful! Diversity is one of the most beautiful things to appreciate in this world!

The real key to happiness is accepting your body exactly as it is, in this very moment.

Does that mean you have to love every single one of your features? No, of course not. But you can still accept it. You can find joy in how you were made and embrace it.

You are enough.
You are worthy of love.
You are beautiful.

If a heart shaped pizza is wrong, I don’t want to be right!

There have been times in my life where this pizza would have stressed me out. My thoughts would have gone something like this:
‘This doesn’t fit my diet’
‘My macros are going to be screwed today’
‘I’ll try to just have one piece’
‘Fuck it, I’ll have as much as I want, get rid of it then start again tomorrow’
‘I’m so full but I’ll keep eating. If this goes in the garbage, I’ll be dreaming about it tomorrow when I’m dieting again’
‘May as well keep snacking on some other forbidden foods while I’m having a night off’
‘I’ll be super strict for the next X days to make up for this’

Safe to say, the joy of a heart shaped pizza would have been lost and I’d be left feeling stuffed and like a failure.

The beauty of intuitive eating is that all foods are equal... there’s no guilt associated with any food. You eat what you want, when you want, until you feel satisfied.
What I’ve found is that through removing restriction and the ‘good’ and ‘bad’ labels, I’ve been able to create neutrality and peace around food. It’s my hope that more people keep discovering this freedom as it’s quite literally life changing!




PS. As cute as it was, the reality of this pizza is that it wasn’t actually very good. After a few bites I decided to eat something else that I’d really enjoy. Dieting Gem would have eaten it anyway, just because it’s pizza!

I rarely drive, but when I do I wear big sunglasses.

I was joking yesterday about the abundance of cookies for Vday and my love of them. And to no surprise, I ate many of them. Maybe too many? But today I am reminding myself that I do not need to feel guilty, I do not need to skip a meal or add an extra workout. I can learn from yesterday, and then go about my day eating as normal. One day is small in the view of our life long health journey.

Happy birthday to this guy!🎂 Can't wait for all of the birthday celebrations, which will include some delicious food. Birthdays, holidays, celebrations of any kind or social gatherings can be hard when you are dieting, have an eating disorder or have rules around food. It can take away from the fun of the event when you are planning, calculating and thinking about how to compensate for whatever food will be involved. This can lead to feeling less connected and even cancelling or not attending events with friends and family. If this is something you struggle with I am happy to help so feel free to DM me!

I was really overwhelmed by food shopping the past few years. The entire process stressed me out so much that I became more and more paralyzed by the anxiety of it all. It should be just a basic adulting thing, right?⠀
🤦🏼‍♀️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What I REALLY was paralyzed by was trying to eat “perfectly.” Every choice I made with food had to be in line with every dieting rule I’d ever heard (crazy, I know!). I wasted so much time and energy playing Tetris with my meal planning that I’d just throw in the towel and get take out.⠀
🤷🏼‍♀️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
All I thought about was food. Not being allowed to eat something just made me want it more and I’d think about it until I ate it and then I felt badly about it. It was an impossible game that I played with myself and I could never win.⠀
👾⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So last year, I let go of the rules. They were stressful, unrealistic, paralyzing and they weren’t serving me. Without dieting, I feel free in a way that I’m not sure I’ve ever really felt before. I’m not letting myself down and I don’t feel like a failure, which if you’ve ever been fat, is all the world tells you you are. ⠀

A MAN DOES NOT DEFINE YOU!
..
..
I know #ValentinesDay2019 may bring up a lot of emotions around food and your body. Whether or not you’re in a relationship, it seems as tho it’s never good enough this time of year. No matter what, we can find something to be unhappy about and then project it onto our bodies.
.
.
SO.... Let me repeat: a man does not define you.
Yesterday, I was interviewed by @_nickiwilson_ and @bsimpsonfitness for the @actionmademamaspodcast and lemme say- It was legit probably the coolest interview I’ve ever done! (and I’ve been on a lot of podcasts 😂)
..
..
I shared how my own issues with food were tied up in what guys thought of me.
👆🏻This is a pretty common thread.
😩Sadly, it doesn’t end even if you find “the One.” Because? We still want to please that person.
FYI: that’s not all bad but for me, it was incredibly destructive to my relationship with food and body (and indirectly my relationship with my husband).
..
..
Here’s what I know: a man doesn’t define you and a man doesn’t give you all confidence BUT...
I do think: a great relationship can be a HUGE part of healing from an eating disorder or just a dysfunctional relationship with food.
..
..
🙄If you’re curious, I do NOT agree with the phrase: “You have to love yourself first before you can expect someone else to love you (or for you to love them).”
..
..
Experiencing love FROM my husband was one very pivotal moment in my own recovery and while not everyone has that luxury, I also don’t want you to feel bad if you’re struggling to accept yourself without being in a partnership.
Single life is hard for many and tho a relationship can solve some problems, it also creates a lot of new ones too.
..
..
So wherever you’re at in your love life, know that YOU ARE ENOUGH! 😊

my one true love 😍 hehe but also this guy (swipe) happy belated vday 🥰

Ate chocolate yesterday even though you weren't hungry? Cool. Want to eat some more chocolate today? Also cool. Intuitive eating isn't something you can pass or fail. It's a process. It's NORMAL eating.

Sometimes we eat simply because we want to, because we're celebrating a holiday or because we are truly hungry. All are a-ok👌

The hard work comes in dealing with the guilt and shame you may have tied to eating from years and years of dieting. Feeling guilty from Valentine's Day? Stop that sh*t right now! Life's too short to feel bad about a chocolate heart and you DON'T have to compensate for anything you eat. Ever. Having a hard time? Shoot me a message and let's chat. I got your back 😘

Thinking about food all the time is a VERY normal response to deprivation. This is your wise body sending you a message. If you are in the throws of dieting and having guilt around food, secretive eating, binge eating, or anything else remember, this is your body trying to save you. You are allowed to listen to your body today and every day. Happy Friday ✌️

Respect does not require body acceptance or body love.
..
It is ok if you are not in a place where you love everything or anything about your body.
..
Rather, what if you focused on treating your body as worthy of healing?
..
I believe in time acceptance will come and body love will happen as more people experience this same body respect.
..
I have been blogging the last 2 months on the first step toward Food Peace™, Respect. The next few months I will be blogging on step 2: Release.
..
Keep in mind, our Food Peace journey is not linear nor on a timeline. I see the journey more like layers that need tending to. The layers build upon each other yet our fat phobic culture will try to break the layers apart. The layers are at even more risk if you live in a body that is marginalized in today's world. This part of our existence means that we need to be attending to all the layers, even those which we may feel we already "completed" to be sure our needs are met.
..
I hope you become more gentle with your need for patience and compassion on your journey.
..
When you are ready, it is time to move on to the second step: Release. If you are not ready, keep rereading my blog's discussions on diet failings and size acceptance.
..
Another note: If you still do not feel ready, you may not be at diet rock bottom and need more time to experience diets to know they don’t work for you. My blog will always be there when you are ready. It is ok to take a break and revisit later. Until then, I will wait patiently.

We might as well talk about love since Valentine's Day is on the horizon. Specifically body love.
..
You might think you are failing at Food Peace if you don't love your body. I'm here to tell you that this is not true! You do not have to love your body to practice Food Peace.
..
Expecting ourselves to be perfect at our relationship with our bodies is not a move towards Food Peace. It will actually move us further away from Food Peace. Recovering from the effects of diet culture means letting go of black and white thinking about our bodies.
..
This Valentine's Day practice doing things throughout the day that show respect for your one amazing body. Recognize what your body has survived. Recognize how it has carried you through to this point. Acknowledge that your body is still showing up for you, even if it is imperfect or not as able as you want it to be.

How are you respecting your body today? Let's chat in the comments. ..

❤ Happy Valentine's Day ❤

Enjoy the day today, whether it feels significant or like any other day. You deserve to love yourself and spend time with those you love in the body you are in right now.
*
While today might involve different foods and drinks than other days, you are allowed to enjoy them without changing a thing or feeling guilty.
*
Be present in the moment with yourself and those you are with, instead of analyzing food or exercise agendas.
*
Eat and move with joy and freedom. You don't deserve anything less ❤

Body KINDNESS...not necessarily body LOVE is an excellent place to start if you are struggling with body acceptance. 💕Show your body kindess and care by nourishing it, moving it in a way that feels good, and resting. Check in with yourself and respond in a kind way. You may not be in a place right now where you feel deserving of kindness but my encouragement is to be kind to your body anyway! ❤ Consider what your body does for you every single day.

I sometimes roll my eyes at myself. Like when I’m being cliché. From the outside, this photo is one of those times. And yes, I did give myself an inner eye roll. But in fact, these lattes were actually no cliché. They were shared between my mom and I after a long hiatus, the space we needed to start healing our relationship. In fact, it felt like we were starting to heal multiple generations worth of pain. We shared laughter but mostly we shared tears of relief, understanding, belonging and growth. It may not be considered food but these lattes were part of our shared experience and what helped us come together. Nourishment is so much more than fuel, it’s also about connection and comfort. It can be so hard when what connects you no longer works. If you’re dealing with dietary restrictions due to health reasons, I am right here with you. Because of my current gut health, it’s a challenge to get even the fuel I need without discomfort, let alone the deeper pleasure I once experienced. Like sharing a latte with my mom. It’s surprisingly heart breaking. Which is why I try to take back my inner eye roll. If you’re going through dietary restrictions that are impacting you everyday, please remember to be kind with yourself. Do what you can to take the best care and if you just can’t face that right now, try to have a little compassion with yourself. Take a deep breath and the next right action will slowly reveal itself. Big love. #iloveyoualatte but we need some time apart… #itsnotyouitsme

Are you celebrating? What are you doing?

Happy Valentine’s Day!!
.
I hope that wherever you are in life and whoever you surround yourself with that you feel LOVED today (& everyday)❤️❤️
.
I was thinking about making my recipe for some black bean brownies but then I was like ehhhh I want the REAL thing (and a boxed mix is easy 😝)! So what did I do, I bought some nice Ghiredelli chocolate brownie mix with M&M’s on top for color 😍
.
Sometimes a ‘healthier’ version of a brownie is satisfying and other times you just want the real thing - today it was the real thing😜 Plus I’m certain my boyfriend will be suuuuper happy about these☺️
.

What’s your favorite piece: Center, edge or corner??
.
I hope you’re able to share love and receive love today 🥰
