It’s that time of year again – new year, new you! I’ve so done this most of my adult life. Resolutions, weight loss, getting fit, being different to what or who you are right now. Handing money over weekly to be weighed, measured and put on a plan that I knew would have me obsessing and counting and only losing weight while I stayed “on plan” and continued handing over my money. I often thought that there must be a better way to be healthy that didn’t entail so much punishment and joylessness around food and exercise.
Well it’s here. Nutriri has a (free for now) online course, which has been developed through Helen James’s personal experience of running a group for the last two years. Nutriri is a social enterprise seeking to free people from restriction diets and to support them through mindful eating and compassionate self care as the means to achieve their goals. The course can be accessed here and is constantly being added to.
I’ve just completed the course and it has really enlightened me on my own food habits and helped me to change my relationship with food. I believe that engaging with the platform by commenting and by joining the Facebook group linked on the course is imperative to the course working for you and for others and would encourage anyone doing this to do so.
