Your Relationship with Food

Jun 06, 2020

It’s not just what you eat – although that is very important.

It’s also how well you digest and absorb what you eat.

Why you eat what you eat.

And how you eat.

When it comes to nutrition, we take a holistic and individual approach, to ensure each of our clients are nourishing their bodies, in a mindful and emotionally and mentally healthy way.

There are a lot of diets and meal plans out there, but all too often there is no thought or coaching around your relationship with food. Many people will start out on a new nutritional plan, and maybe only stick to it for 2-12-weeks, as it all gets too hard, too unenjoyable, or they just slip back to their old harmful eating habits. Then the pattern of yoyo-dieting sets in. Some ‘health-nuts’ will stick to a ‘clean’ eating plan for a longer duration – maybe many years, maybe for life – yet even if this is the case, too often these people develop disordered eating. Stressed about if they're eating the 'right thing' for their body, highly-anxious in social situations where there are a lot of junk foods around. Maybe feel extreme guilt and self-loathing if they eat ‘off-plan’. 

The reason why this happens all too often is that ‘diets’ or even ‘clean eating’ rarely address your relationship with food: why you eat what you eat, how you eat, and your vision for your self, your health, and your life. 

At Chris & Filly - Functional Medicine, we use many different types of healing nutrition plans, depending on what is going on with the client. However, we are big believers in not just looking at what you 'should' and should not' eat. We also look deeper at your eating patterns and your relationship with food. 

Are you emotionally eating? Are you stress eating? Are you culturally eating? Are you boredom eating? WHY are you eating this way? Are you addicted to food – or a type of food? Are you scared of food? Until you understand why and how you eat, you will never be able to break free from harmful patterns. Through mindset coaching and functional medicine, we uncover imbalances in both your mind and body which effect the way you eat.

We also look at the stories you have about your body. Are you trying to eat ‘healthy’ because you love your body, or because you hate it? If the latter, you need to dig deep and learn to love your body. Only then will you be able to truly serve and nourish your body with food in a psychologically and physically healthy way. Only then will you truly be able to heal your body, and rise to optimal health and wellness.
