So, you're done with dieting. Now what?
Getting medical advice that doesn't include a diet or weight-loss recommendation is hard. That's why my practice is weight-neutral. Hi, I'm Dr. Kerri, a HAES™ naturopathic doctor and certified intuitive eating counselor.
Are you ready to make peace with food and end the war with your body?
I was at war with my body for decades
It was like a dam broke, and suddenly I couldn’t stop eating. The guilt was overwhelming but not enough to stop this out-of-control binge. That was in 2010.
This was an all too familiar pattern. My first diet was when I was 12. I started at Weight Watchers with my mom and cycled through all the commercial weight loss programs, picking up a few extra pounds every time.
In 2009 I went to Overeaters Anonymous (OA) because food addiction seemed to be the only answer to my problem. I was told that if I ‘just’ never ate my ‘trigger foods’ again, I would be ‘cured.’ That story is long, so let me jump to the ending. I wasn’t cured. My relationship with food was even more screwed up after a year and a half of being ‘abstinent’ at OA.
