YOU DESERVE BETTER THAN:

 feeling totally out of control around food

 counting calories and carbs and logging it in MyFitness Pal

 dreading going jeans shopping because it makes you feel awful about yourself

 being totally lost when it comes to healthy choices

You’re trying to do all the healthy things:

🌱 drinking your daily celery juice

🌱 memorizing that new keto book

🌱 forcing yourself to do another HIIT workout

Your obsession with being healthy and losing weight has completely taken over your life.

And you're doing all of this so that you can feel better. But most of the time you just end up feeling like a failure.

I know you

because I was you

As a nutritionist, I was doing all the "right things". But in secret, I was a panicked mess of food fear and it was becoming a problem.
 
When I realized I'd gotten to a point where I was actually afraid to eat a grape, I decided to finally unpack my disordered relationship with food.
 
So take it from someone who's been wellness-obsessed and has come through the other side, there is a better way to be healthy.

HERE'S THE TRUTH:

  • You can be healthy and honour your cravings.

  • You can eat the foods you enjoy without losing control.

  • You can learn to respect your body without wanting to change it.

The Course

How much time will I need to spend each 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.




I work a 9-5. When are the coaching calls scheduled?


I've carved out availability *just for you*. We'll chat about what weekly time works best for our coaching calls and book those dates. You'll be able to schedule time with me on weeknight evenings and/or over your lunch hour.




Is everything delivered virtually/online?


100%! Gotta love 2021. You'll receive digital copies of all content and we'll meet on zoom for our coaching calls + nutrition consults.





Pricing

Are your programs and services covered by my insurance?


Not every part of the Food Freedom Breakthrough is, but you can request reimbursement for our 1:1 appointments. If you're wondering whether holistic nutrition services are covered under your health insurance, it will depend on who the provider is. It's best to check with your insurance company. They will need the qualification (Registered Nutritional Consulting Practitioner) and registration number (available upon request). They might also need to know that this is through the International Organization of Nutritional Consultants. Here are a few organizations that have been known to cover nutrition services: Co-operators Insurance, Large Group Policies, RWAM Insurance Administrators Inc., SunLife, Extended Benefits Policy, TD Canada – Flex Benefits, Great West Life – depending on the individual plan many “Flex Plans” or “Health Spending Accounts” allow members to allocate their health insurance funds towards complementary health services. Please check with your insurance company to see if your plan extends coverage to nutrition counselling services.




I'm on a strict budget. Do you offer discounts?


I don't offer any discounts, but I sliding scale pricing is available and reserved for students, artists and those affected by the pandemic and/or systemic socio-economic oppression. Unsure if you qualify? Send me an email at hello@saltandspoonwellness.com





The Content

Do you include nutrition recommendations?


I do x 2! There's an entire course module (and bonus) material dedicated to teaching you how to incorporate gentle nutrition into your new food freedom lifestyle. We also meet to go over two customized nutrition protocols and specific-to-you recommendations at the beginning and end of the course.




What about meal plans?


I definitely don't do strict meal plans (go figure). I'm not a fan of telling you what to eat because I find it can be too prescriptive. But I do give you tons of resources so that *you* can set yourself up for success when it comes to having good food in the fridge. I teach you how to plan as an intuititive eater, so that you're always honouring your cravings but can pack a damn lunch every once in a while.




I already have a therapist. Will this program be overkill?


Definitely not! We're not pretending to be mental health professionals over here. But, I very much think I'm a great part of your health *team*. We get to focus on the food-based stuff: mindset work, eating intuitively, observing what you're eating and changing your food rules and restriction. This is a great compliment to talk therapy, IMO.





Food Freedom

If I have current health issues can I 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!




What if I still want to eat healthy?


That's the whole point! The Breakthrough is designed to teach you *how* to make healthy choices without all of the baggage (guilt, shame, self-loathing) that often comes along for the ride.




Can you be anti-diet and still want to lose weight for your health?


The two are actually pretty counter intuititive. The problem here is that we're connecting weight loss with improved health and that's simply not always the case. You can be healthy at *any* size and losing weight won't necessarily change your symptoms or chronic health issues. Being anti-diet is acknowledging that diets for weight loss are the *probelm*, and that your health is not dependent on your weight but on your behaviour.
