Ditch the Diet
Take back control
Do you feel like you have spent most of your life either on a diet or off a diet (and putting on weight)?
Would you consider yourself to be a yo-yo dieter?
Managing our weight can sometimes be tricky and is often seen as confusing. There are so many conflicting messages in the media and well meaning people who share their 'incredible' stories of weight loss; this can leave us feeling overwhelmed and inadequate.
In reality, we know weight loss occurs when we burn more calories than we consume, so why is it so tricky?
I believe we struggle to manage our weight, not because we don't know what to do (calories in/out) but because we no longer know how. Diets can often stop us listening to our hunger signals which can end up meaning we eat more than we would have done if we had just honoured our hunger.
I know that sounds counter intuitive but just think for a moment. How many times do you start the day thinking today is the day I start my diet? You don't eat or eat very little for as long as you can, eventually you feel so hungry you end up eating the quickest most filling (and energy dense) food you can.
For 95% of people diets don't work in the long term, people lose weight initially and then a few months later, they put the weight back on and in many cases a little more. People I speak to generally blame themselves but if it's the same for 95% of people who are trying to diet, then maybe it's not you.......
There are also many different reasons why we eat and not all of them are because of biological hunger, sometimes it is an emotional trigger. By understanding the triggers, you can try to respond in a different way or by using EFT, in some cases, you can reduce the impact of the trigger.
Everyone is different and will have their own unique experience, therefore it is important that any weight management package not only follows sound nutritional information from the Department of Health/NHS but includes a support package that is unique to them - that's where Dancing in the Rain comes in.
Dancing in the Rain offers a weight management package that is shaped to your needs; we start off with an initial consultation to look at where you currently are, the sort of things you have tried in the past, what worked for you, what didn't, what you liked and what you didn't like.
We explore some of the emotions that may sit behind the reasons you eat and use EFT/tapping to help you overcome those negative emotions and to help you get in control of any food cravings.
To find out more about Dancing in the Rain's weight management programme, we can arrange a free 20 minute, no obligation chat, where you can find out more about what is offered and whether you feel this is the right programme for you.
The one to one personalised programme consists of six sessions over two months. Each session lasts approximately 90 minutes and you will be given techniques that you can use in your day to day life to back up what you achieve in the sessions.
