You have been on a diet for years; perhaps most of your life. Hopping from one diet to the next, constantly searching for an answer. When you severely restrict caloric intake on a regular basis to try to lose weight, are obsessed with body weight and size and go on and off diets constantly despite loss of weight…you may be a chronic dieter. This can be severely unhealthy and can have long-term psychological and physiological effects. No matter where you are at on the Chronic Dieting continuum, as your coach, I can help.
Our eating challenges fall on a continuum. According to Webster, the simple definition of a continuum is “a range or series of things that are slightly different from each other and that exist between two different possibilities.” Imagine that I am holding up a long string. There are many different points along the string between the two ends. Just because you are not at one end/extreme or the other, doesn’t mean you do not struggle.
Many will think if they are not suffering from a clinical eating disorder, such as Bulimia and Anorexia, or haven’t been diagnosed with Obesity and related health concerns, then there isn’t a problem. However, if your mind is consumed with thoughts of food, body, exercise, etc., then you certainly have a pain-point. The great news is that you do not have to live this way. No matter where you are at on the continuum, I will meet you there and help!
