What is “Diet-Free Nutrition Therapy”
January 19, 2024
As the last of the holiday treats are starting to finally disappear you might join the millions of people thinking about some kind of diet or cleanse to get a fresh start for the new year. This is the time of year when social media, advertising spots, and “New Year-New You” gym specials are targeting your guilt and remorse for a season well lived, making you feel obligated to jump on the bandwagon.
That same bandwagon that most people fall off somewhere between Valentine’s Day and St. Paddy’s.
Research consistently shows that more than half of New Year’s diets fail- in fact, almost 80% are abandoned by spring.
Let this be the year that you make a radical change and skip the New Year’s Diet trend.
You don’t need a diet
Rest assured that if you are feeling like you need a change in your lifestyle because you are feeling heavy, achy, have GI flare ups, or just don’t feel well a diet is not the right choice.
Restricting food, over exercising, and avoiding foods that bring you joy are what we call in the yoga world- needless suffering. The best way to avoid needless suffering is to check in with what is no longer serving you and let it go.
Too much sugar messing leaving you with achy joints and mood swings? Let go of daily desserts.
Feeling sluggish and over-tired from family-style servings? Let go of cleaning your plate.
Digestive system out of control? Let go of disorganized meals and lack of planning.
Your body gives you signals, are you listening?
Diet-free nutrition therapy
Once again looking at the research clearly shows that sustainable, long-term, radical change comes from small habit changes over time.
