“Throw out the diet books and magazine articles that offer you the false hope of losing weight quickly, easily, and permanently. Get angry at diet culture that promotes weight loss and the lies that have led you to feel as if you were a failure every time a new diet stopped working and you gained back all of the weight. If you allow even one small hope to linger that a new and better diet or food plan might be lurking around the corner, it will prevent you from being free to rediscover Intuitive Eating.”

Sometimes wellness and wellbeing are used interchangeably, however they are different.

When you think of the term “Wellness” what comes to mind? How about wellbeing? What is your vision of wellbeing?

It’s important to realize that diet culture tells us this looks a certain way and often revolves around body size, but that simply isn’t true. Wellness and wellbeing in my opinion are about so much more.

Tuning in and listening to your body, mind, and spirit and honoring what is needed to feel well is a great way to start.

If you’re ready to go further I love working with clients one on one to dive deep into creating a personalized wellness plan for optimal wellbeing.

Dr. Amy Sapola provides a practical approach to Whole Person Wellness through Culinary Medicine, Mindful Eating, and Connecting with Nature.
