In my work, I know that there are four different types of you out there, reading these exact words right now. On your phone, at the office, or waiting for your dentist appointment or workout class to start.
Four. Let me explain. There are:
- Those that just need new healthy food ideas (the blog and cookbook are your jam, ma’am)
- Those that just need a little more structure on meal prep & planning (my cute meal planners)
- Those of you that know some about food, but get confused/overwhelmed by all the ever-changing information (my fun food academy peeps)
And then, there’s category #4.
These people, my little 4’s, want it all.
Permanently. And deeply.
Every bit of their soul craves more balance and calm. Because their life is crazy, yes.
And they know that around food especially, it just oozes into every other part of their life. They know this from experience. Oftentimes painful ones, and endless ones.
That all the meal plans in the world, and all the healthy recipes can’t fully dig into.
They crave more sustainability and resilience to life’s up’s and downs.
Less internal noise.
More emotional peace.
And the mentality piece.
Because it’s a deeper grit and work required to actually change how your brain fires and thinks, and how your emotions are attached. Because between those two, they control it all.
These beautiful souls of mine, are different.
I know, because I was one too.
Chasing and trying and testing different things frantically, when all the while, everything I needed to make a full switch into having a healthier relationship to food for good, was about learning to actually face up to the things I had been so afraid of: a close up exam of those thoughts and voices in my head keeping me stuck. Preventing me from having a happy and carefree relationship to good food.
All I wanted was this:
To have food not be such a struggle or a daily mental battle.
To stop wasting hours, days and weeks of my life, feeling guilty, or trying too hard to be extremely healthy or extremely not.
I wanted to live in a normal, healthy-for-the-most-part way that wouldn’t take over my life and make me the weirdo at dinner parties. Or tailgates. Or happy hour.
Asking the question: how do I eat and live healthy, and not hate it or feel constricted or punished or miserable (or puffy and sad and out of control)?
It was a legitimate question.
But, is that too much to ask for? I remember thinking.
Like, is it humanly possible to not be on a diet for the rest of your life, but to still feel really good most days?
I now know that I think it’s the only way to be. If you want to be happy and enjoy your life and not just live like a weird robot.
Without dieting. Without being crazy. Just by infusing more good, and clearing out a lot of clutter so people can actually READ the signals of their body instead of just float around in blah-land.
And yes, that’s a real place.
For years, I’ve been coaching people one-on-one on how to figure out this piece of the puzzle. It’s my most favorite work.
The most thrilling work, watching people change week by week in our 6 weeks together. Until the end, when they are literally a different person than when we started.
They know exactly when they’re hungry, and when it’s something else.
And they know exactly what to do when it is another feeling or emotion.
They know how their body likes to workout and thrive.
They know exactly what foods give them energy and sass, and those that don’t.
They know what non-nutrient dense foods they love and how to enjoy every bite or sip.
They know how to cook in a way that works in their life.
They know how to eat out, and navigate real life situations with grace and ease.
They know how to meal plan, and how to shop way more efficiently.
They know how to cook for others in their family, and be social, happy little people.
They know how to get themselves back when they feel off or in a funk.
They have daily joy rituals and practices.
They are centered, they are graceful, they are peaceful and they are calm around all situations that involve food and life.
And because of these things, they now have a great relationship to food.
And a much more fulfilling, alive feeling life.
In 6 weeks, no less. A lot of life happens there and it’s pure gold.
And last year, I ran my first three group programs, solely fueled by my deeper mission at Simply Real Health to inspire people to take action in their lives. And to live their happiest, best one.
Whatever that means to them.
Because everyone deserves to live a life like that.
A life created, celebrated, and curated out of design instead of default.
Because- think about a world and a next generation of people who live and think and breathe and eat that way.
Mind blowing, right?
Food affects everything. And anything.
So today, I have a special announcement.
The next group program is opening very soon. With very limited spots. All in the 6 weeks leading up the Thanksgiving, so you can truly get a deeper grasp on your food, and your relationship to it.
To be solid and grounded and calm, no matter what comes your way.
With recorded podcasts you can listen to on your own time each week, a live (but optional) weekly Q + A video call, access for individual questions, weekly homework assignments, treats, daily tracking, weekly recipes, a group forum and LIFETIME access to this program, each and every time it runs.
To essentially– be my babies for 6 weeks. And join the amazing community of over 75 women who have done this exact journey, and continue to live it daily.
To learn about real food in it’s entirety, and how much it impacts the rest of your life.
To work on the mental and emotional component to food.
To re-program your brain to want and love living a healthy life. To teach you everything I know, and share it.
Oo, I get chills just thinking about it! Just writing about it feels magical.
Curious to learn more?
Registration opens this coming Friday, September 30th, with only 25 spots open.
The welcome kickoff call begins October 5th at 12pm PT/3pm ET, so mark your calendar.
