Food Freedom Online Course
Can I have current health issues and still try the Food Freedom Method?
Ab-so-lutely. The best part about food freedom is it’s more of a mental shift. You’re still honouring your body and it’s needs, so if you aren’t able to eat certain foods because of your health, that’s all just a part of your self care.
I’ll also make sure to address If there are certain recommendations in the gentle nutrition section of the course that don’t fit with your current health requirements, and we’ll make tweaks/substitutions as necessary in your 1:1 consults.
Will I gain/lose weight with intuitive eating?
Maybe! You may gain weight, you may lose weight (and you’ll learn that your health and newfound confidence isn’t really connected to your weight, anyway). When you learn to eat intuitively, you are giving your body what it needs. This could cause some to gain and some to lose body weight and it’s all perfectly healthy and normal.
What if I give in to food freedom, and just end up eating cookies forever?
You definitely won’t! This is a common fear with letting go of food rules. But your body knows what it needs for fuel and when you start listening to those requests, you’ll crave what you need to sustain yourself. Sometimes that’s cookies, most times it’s not!
How much time will I need to spend per week on the course?
The best part about this course is that it’s self-paced, because growth and deconditioning takes time and that’s different for everyone. But, there are suggestions for how to structure your learning to make the most out of your 1:1 sessions and live coaching calls. Generally, I’d recommend spending 20-30 minutes per day on self care/homework and 1-3 hours per week on the lessons and coaching.
Is this covered by my insurance?
Not every part of the Food Freedom Breakthrough is, but you can request reimbursement for our 1:1 appointments.
