There are so many diets out there: paleo, low carb, gluten-free, 5:2 intermittent fasting and the list goes on. You are guaranteed to lose weight on any diet you go on but the question is, can you keep it off over the long term?
Losing weight can be difficult when you try to tackle it on your own. For some, it can be a lifelong battle that involves yoyo dieting and fad diets. Having a weight problem can be overwhelming and affect multiple aspects of the person’s life. It can cause breathing difficulties, joint pain, affect the individual’s self-esteem and lead to social isolation. Carrying excess weight can also have a negative impact on your health, increasing your risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease, diabetes and kidney disease.
Charlyn has a wealth of experience in working with clients with weight issues and disordered eating patterns (including comfort eating, binge eating, yo-yo dieting). She has undergone training in the Non-Diet Approach and the Health at Every Size paradigm. We incorporate mindful eating techniques and weight neutral approaches in our practice to help you improve your relationship with food. We will help you to shed the dieting metality once and for all and learn to trust your body signals.
