Service Description

Join Victoria Lambert, MS, RD, for an informative lecture on what the research has to say about the effects of dieting on our brain and our bodies and a discussion on how to cope with an environment that doesn’t do much to support wellbeing. Change is incredibly difficult- and still, you may be wanting something different in your life. How you think about self-care and nutrition, and the words you use to describe the process matter deeply. It can't be about weight. It can't be about putting your life on hold.  Recent scientific research, and 20 years of clinical practice, has revealed that the usual approaches to “managing” body weight are counter-productive, and for some people, harmful. For some, the idea of not dieting is unthinkable- even radical. For others, they are burned out on trying and “failing” over and over. Either way, there are ways of thinking and new ideas that can help people find freedom from a dieting mindset where criticism and judgement are replaced with intuitive eating and joyful movement.  
 If you are curious, this might be for you if: - You are interested in learning more about what the research says about the impacts of dieting and how effective diets (of any kind) are. - You’d like to stop dieting and find a nurturing, non-judgmental approach to food and health. - You want to live your life and attend to self-care, but NOT feel like you’re constantly thinking about calories, dieting rules, what other people think, the size or shape of your body, or losing weight. - You’d like to feel grounded, calm, and at ease in your relationship with food and your body. - You want to discover what works best for you rather than follow the advice of a guru who is certain they know.  About Victoria: Victoria has twenty years of experience as a clinical dietitian and nutrition therapist.
