We live in a world that’s pretty crazy when it comes to food and weight. These days, most people understand this. Whether you’re heavy or not, though, it’s often very hard to maintain a healthy weight without worry, confusion, and guilt. And it’s hard to gain control without help.
Eat Sanely grew out of Dr. Katz’ more than twenty years’ work with eating disorders. Dr. Katz is a clinical psychologist, eating disorder specialist, diet coach, and bariatric surgery counselor. She works to help people find ways of eating that lead to healthy weight and a healthy relationship with food. This means approaching change as a process leading to habits and routines that last, not just a “diet” that eventually stops working.
Dieting and then regaining weight leads to feelings of failure and hopelessness. But if you, like many people, have tried and not succeeded in changing your habits, coaching can help. The cognitive psychologist Dr. Judith Beck says “Few people who have struggled with dieting can lose weight and sustain that weight loss without help and encouragement from another person.” Research backs this idea. People who have the right kind of help do make changes more successfully.
Diet coaching can help you identify the routines that will work best for you. It can help you solve practical problems in putting plans into action. It can help you identify ways of thinking that undermine your efforts to change. It can help you understand and then change the emotional ties that keep you stuck in unhealthy habits. It can help you stay on track through the ins and outs and ups and downs of your life.
