My whole goal is to teach people how to eat for their specific body, so that they never have to go on a “diet” to manage their weight or health condition. I emphasize the importance of whole foods, and recommend my clients follow a mostly plant-based diet for optimal health. Of course, I try to be realistic and do let my clients know they can indulge once in a while whether it is alcohol, a cheeseburger, or chocolate. The goal is 90%of the time you eat healthy and allow yourself 10% “wiggle-room”. Food should be enjoyable, but should not be all you think about all day. If you are eating properly for your body, you will learn to listen to your body for hunger cues and never feel the urge to binge or overeat due to deprivation.
