So, Your Relationship Status with Food is…Complicated

So, Your Relationship Status with Food is… complicated

food.

You need it to live, but do you find yourself living your life in a constant battle with it?

It often feels like everywhere you turn there’s another clean eating trend, another diet plan, another message that in order to be happy you have to somehow be at war with food.

“Carbs make you fat.”
“Do a juice cleanse.”
“Eggs are bad for your heart.”
“Eat a ‘raw’ diet.”
“Sugar is evil.”
“Those foods aren’t ‘clean’.”

The diet world is all about what we shouldn’t do—it’s all about willpower, commitment, and muscling through. We’re constantly bombarded with messages about food and what we “should” and “shouldn’t” be eating. We’re taught to restrict and deprive ourselves. We learn that some foods are “good” and others are “bad”.

And as women we often face judgement from others about what we eat, which can lead us to a pretty dark place when it comes to how we feel about food—and about ourselves. It can feel intensely overwhelming, and lead to deep-rooted, negative feelings about food…

Maybe you can relate?

If you beat yourself up inside when you eat something “bad”, and obsess about it all day…

If you feel controlled by food and/or totally out of control with food…

If you fear what it means to just let yourself enjoy the foods that you like…

If you’re afraid that accepting yourself as you are means that you’re giving up on what you could or “should” be physically…

If you’re secretly afraid to give up emotional eating and binging because, in the moment, it helps…

…well, believe me, you’re not alone.

I’ve worked with women from all walks of life who’ve faced deep struggles in their relationship with food—battles that have been raging in their lives for years.

It’s a painful place to be, and it breaks my heart to know that many women believe that this is just how it has to be…

Because the truth is, a complicated relationship with food doesn’t have to be your reality.

It IS possible to find true balance and satisfaction when it comes to food, body, and identity, and it’s possible for you just as you are today…

I can’t say enough about Karen Diaz. She will change your life.

I have struggled with food my entire life and it became completely out of control about 5 years ago. I gained 80 lbs and tried everything I could to lose the weight. Diets, weight watchers, worked with a personal trainer, etc. The problem was I was only treating the symptoms and not the cause. The only thing I was learning was what to eat which I already knew. I know what foods are healthy. I was missing the bigger picture.

Karen moved me past the diet mentality and helped me look deeper at the root of the problem. I had so many “a-ha” moments working with Karen and want others to have the same experience. It’s an amazing feeling to not be thinking about food constantly or to place my self worth based on what I eat. It’s unbelievable how much time and energy I have gotten back. She is amazing!!

Satisfied

A life-changing mini course created to help you shift your relationship with food from deprivation to satisfaction

How we are in life is how we are with food, and Satisfaction is about more than food. It’s about your inner journey and learning to be present with yourself and with food. It’s about embracing quality over quantity. It’s about seeing food as a luxurious, positive experience, not a die-hard battle.

When life happens from a place of satisfaction, things flow with ease. You feel empowered. You can let go of the ideas of foods being “good” or “bad”, and live more intuitively based on what your body needs and wants.

And when others share their beliefs about food (or what you’re eating), they don’t sway you because you’re rooted in what works for you, without apologies.

I am having a hard time writing this because words don’t express what Karen did for me. Karen saved my life, or I should say Karen taught me how to save my life.

I started sessions with Karen when my eating disorder was full blown, and I was very ill. My eating disorder took over my life. Karen stood by my side and guided me through all the baby steps of my nutrition along with tips of wisdom that opened the door to my recovery.

Karen has been a consistent tool in my recovery. I have never encountered a nutritionist with so much knowledge and in-depth guidance.

Karen’s professionalism and education are outstanding, but her ability to convey her messages made all the difference to me, and I am truly grateful.

I’m going to try to summarize what working with Karen did for my life. I say “try” because it may be impossible to describe what a different person I am today. In all areas of my life.

This is about food, yes… but it’s so much more. I feel like a giddy little girl most days, and (!!!) have all the tools I need to live my life the way I always thought I could. My husband summed it up looking at me one night as I was talking to him about something (I can’t even remember what it was now) and he just shook his head and said jokingly, “I am so in awe of you these days… like, who are you?!”

Looking back, any of the concerns of “will this work for me” “is it a good investment” etc. were irrelevant because immediately after committing to the work, I could see that Karen was in this 100%. More if possible. She was going to meet me where I was and work through it with me no matter what as long as I was open to the work. And I was open to it most definitely. So, if I wanted it, it was mine.

There was no way I could fail. And that was an awesome way to feel. In fact, now that I think about it – that’s pretty much how I take on anything these days: with inevitable success. Sure, trip-ups are going to happen – but the thought of it doesn’t paralyze me anymore – because I just have to show up, do the work, and be open to the good stuff. And by the “good stuff” I mean the journey.

I am so thankful for Karen and her work. It’s a gift. Having gone through the program, it’s hard to put the value of it into dollars… I would pay it 10x over – no question.

A Note From Karen:

Imagine that you’ve let go of the pressures and expectations of dieting and food trends, and you’ve embraced the peace that comes with accepting yourself and your body for the value that you bring to the world. You’ve stopped being at war with food.

In fact, you love food.

This may seem like a radical transformation from how you feel right now, and if so, that’s ok. I’m not here to make you feel wrong for the struggle. I’m here to share with you that there is so much hope for you to overcome this painful relationship with food, and truly feel satisfied.

How do I know? Because as a Nutritionist who’s worked with hundreds of women struggling with similar issues, I’ve seen so many of them come out on the other side. I know it’s possible because I’ve helped women get there, and I want to do the same for you.

It’s time to let go of the battle, embrace luxury, and learn to love food. Are you ready? I can’t wait to see your life transform. I hope you’ll join me on this journey.

With lots of love,

 

Karen
