Losing weight is hard. You are not weak we live in a society that is conducive to making us eat more than we need. Dieting culture has taught us to act like lightbulbs being either on or off diets when actually a much more subtle and evidence based approach is needed.
One to one sessions focus on your nutrition amongst other things such as your mindset, emotions, habits and behaviours that have lead to you gaining weight over the years. Once these patterns are established through therapy we can unlock these unhelpful ways of being with food so that you can lose weight and keep it off.
Powerful cravings can emerge as a result of abnormal blood sugar highs and lows which can lead you to wanting something else to eat even after a big meal.
When blood sugar falls too fast your brain thinks there is a famine, it slows your metabolism right down, which can cause you to feel exhausted and makes you gain weight easily.
6 things you can start doing now to help you lose weight
2 Get enough quality sleep. A good nights sleep is so important to helping stabilise your metabolism. When we are tired our brain signals to us that we are hungry so that it can get enough fuel in it’s tired state to make it through the day. The brain is the biggest user of glucose in the body and therefore you are predisposed to reach for fatty sugary foods when tired. A good nights sleep can make all the difference when making your food choices the next day.
3 De clutter. Having a cluttered workspace or home has been scientifically proven to chip away at your willpower this is because subconscious brain is constantly processing the mess and all the jobs left undone. De-cluttering allows your brain to rest and means that you are more likely to be able to resist the eating foods that won’t help you lose weight.
4 Start noticing your thoughts. Being able to identify when a craving is happening and why is very powerful. Your thoughts lead you into action. If you can notice when bingeing thoughts start to happen you can nip them in the bud by accepting that
5 Stimulus control. Having sugary fatty foods in the house is setting yourself up to fail as you are relying on willpower alone not to eat them. Then when you do the guilt and negative self talk begins. Remove these foods from the house and replace them with more wholesome alternatives.
6 Eat enough good quality protein. Quality protein like chicken, turkey, soya and seitan contain essential amino acids that your body needs in order to function well. Protein keeps you fuller for longer so you are less likely to snack in between meals. Structured eating and eating enough are key to successful weight loss along with habit and behaviour change.
All these things and more are explained through one on one therapy where you receive counselling-coaching treatment to help you lose weight and feel happier with your body.

Food, Eating, Weight and Size Matters
I often see people who have dieted for years, losing weight and putting it back on, who don't understand why they keep yo-yo-ing. The mind controls everything, and without fundamental changes to your mindset and nutrition the cycle of weight loss followed by weight gain will continue.
