Staying Body Positive as the weather warms up and the festive season approaches

I had a conversation last week with a client that went like this:

She – “I want to move to a country where Christmas is in the winter”.

Me – “Why’s that? You hoping for a White Christmas?”

She – “No. It’s because then I wouldn’t be trying to adjust to summer clothing, eat out more and socialise all at once. I could just put a big coat on and not give a ****”.

What's the Non-Diet Approach all about?

The term ’non-diet’ is one you will often see used by health professionals and advocates who encourage approaches to health and wellbeing that are contrary to popular messages promoting restrictive weight loss diets.

Many of the team at Mind Body Well were fortunate to be introduced to the non-diet world by Dr Rick Kausman, author of ‘If Not Dieting Then What?’ and one of the pioneers of the non-diet movement. The title of Rick’s book sums up well what many of our clients are asking…. “I’ve tried restrictive weight loss diets and they haven’t worked for me, so what now?”
