DIETING DAMAGES YOUR HEALTH
Diets are not only ineffective as you nearly always regain the weight, they are now a known a risk factor for long-term weight gain. In addition, they actually damage your health, both mentally and physically. Any food or calorie restriction to intentionally lose weight is a form of dieting.
Our dietitians work within the Health at Every Size® (HAES) paradigm.
Our philosophy is this…
- A positive attitude to food is more important than always striving to make the “right” food choice
- Reconnect with your internal signals of hunger, fullness and satisfaction
- Establish and nurture a healthy relationship with food, eating and your body
- Reconnect with food, practice eating with mindfulness and you can enjoy all food
- Choose from a variety of foods and no one food type need be restricted
LEARN TO TRULY ENJOY FOOD
Forget the latest fad, forget trying to be “clean” or “sugar free”,
forget diet foods, forget shakes & juices.
In the words of Evelyn Tribole R.D.
(and a spin off from Michael Pollan)
“Enjoy eating food, not too much, not too little, mostly what satisfies you!”

- Healthy eating encompasses listening to our appetite and eating food that satisfies us when we feel hungry and being able to recognise when we’ve eaten enough.
- Healthy eating is the mindful enjoyment of any type of food without needing to worry about calories or body weight.
- Healthy eating is also sharing food with others over a meal, celebration or just to keep someone company.
- Healthy eating is sometimes eating fruit and sometimes eating sweets.
- Healthy eating includes sometimes eating when not hungry and sometimes eating more than you need.
- But most of all, healthy eating is having a positive attitude to food and eating where there is enough nutritional variety but also where food can be eaten purely for the joy of eating!
