That’s right! On 16th October at The Book Club (LDN) @antidietriotclub is back with another juicy panel event to deep dive into the murky waters of “THE HEALTH QUESTION” aka the annoying thing that always comes up when you talk about body acceptance, the Anti-Diet movement and fat activism. We are utterly honoured to be joined by LUCY APHRAMOR (co-author of #BodyRespect ), @LAURATHOMASPHD (Registered Nutritionist & certified badass), HOLLIE GRANT (aka @thepilatespt & fitness rebel) and NADIA CRADDOCK (researcher, academic & @appearancematters8 podcaster!) 💚

There is nothing wrong with emotional eating! Our society that fears weight gain says it's bad because emotional eating can lead to weight gain if done too often. But eating emotionally is actually a pretty useful coping strategy for many people.
I was, exactly as this post states, over the freezer eating ice cream from the container last night and had a couple of different options. I could ask myself what was wrong with me that I was eating ice cream in such a manner and then proceed to get mad at myself and eat the whole container or move on to binge on other food items and then feel guilty and ashamed. Or, as I chose to do, I could ask myself what I was really needing in that moment. Since I wasn't hungry, it wasn't food I was really looking for. Some of the things you could really be needing when you're emotionally eating may include connecting with another human or animal emotionally or physically, relieving stress or anxiety, or creating more fulfillment in your life. Ways to get these needs met include calling a friend, journaling, snuggling a pet, going for a mindful walk, or looking for a new job. Any of the activities you choose are not simply to stop you from eating, but rather to actually get your needs met.
SO STRESSED!?// Putting this here as a mindful reminder that behind all the thoughts in your head there is blue sky. Funny to see this when currently I am sitting in my flat surrounded by boxes and feeling so veeeery fucking far away from beach chill. • But it's important cause we are ALL stressed but do you what's going on inside? Stress is REALLY bad for your body. (I used to be a professional massage therspist so trust me, I know about stress.) •
Stress flips your nervous system from the friendly GREEN ZONE 💚(think beach bar chill) to the angsty, not good for you RED ZONE🌋 (packed commuter train vibes)
When you're in the red, your body is pumping out adrenaline and cortisol (both needed for fight or flight situations, except your body doesn't know the difference between running from a lion 🦁 and 1000 unanswered emails📧 ).
When your body is in the red, it stops sending blood to places like your digestive system and immune system meaning you're more liking to get sick. Not good babe! 😭 If you're body pumps out too many stress hormones you can also get adrenal fatigue which leaves you drained. • •
Stress also causes ANXIETY and for me, thought spiralling can be a big issue. ☄ Too much on my mind and giving too much attention to my thoughts trying to scenario plan often leaves me exhausted. •
SO WHAT CAN YOU DO? ☄
Top tips for stress management:
1.🏝 Spend 5 minutes feeling the breathe come into your body and really push it into your belly. Count the breathes. If you lose your place, start again. All good. Can you find the calm under the thoughts? That's the blue sky. It can take a lot of following your breathes before you get here so be patient. The mind will settle. keep practicing.
2. 🏝 Write lists and get that shit out your brain.
3.🏝 Get out of the house and into nature. Green is soothing.
4. 🏝 Do some exercise to release the adrenaline. OR. If you're highly stressed do something gentle like yoga to calm your nerves. Listen to what you need.
5. 🏝 Have a cuddle or book a massage. Touch releases the magical oxytocin the feel good hormone.
6. 🏝 Ask for help. It's ok to need it!
7.🏝 Do something nice for YOU. •

Workout Highlights. I post these everyday on my story so check them out! Today was a sweaty workout. Had preworkout 30 mins before and when the tingly feeling was kicking in, I pressed play with my brother.
So in this workout, our trainer @shaunt said in the end "while you are trying to find your life let's stretch" or something in that nature... Anyways, I WAS trying to find my life and figure out what the heck just happened to me. Do you ever have those workouts where your brain just goes off because your body is tired? Yeah...that kind of workout. Brutal but worth it! Today was Week 3 Day 3 and there is only a couple more days of this program before I switch and start to a new one on Oct 1st.
Did you get an email invite from me to join my "Finish The Year Strong" challenge? If not, and you want in on the challenge, send me a DM or comment your email below. Let's do this!!!
Talk about a non scale victory!
I'm continually in awe of my amazing clients! In a call today, one of my incredible ladies told me about how she stopped at eating half a cookie...for the first time in her life.
She credits it all to being more aware of her appetite and satisfaction, two key parts of my MASTER your Eating system. And for someone who didn't trust herself around cookies four months ago, this is a huge victory! So proud of this inspirational woman 😘
If you wanna chat about how to put MASTER to work for you to be more confident around food, and lose inches, DM me!
What's one of your wins from today??
The mind can play serious tricks on you. Both are from the same self tape I did 2 nights ago. My face has always been one of my sensitive areas. I thought “wow whata double chin”, then literally in the same breath (the next picture) “wow I’m looking good”. 20sec difference. Harsh. Sensitive. A shift in a matter of seconds. Why post if I am so sensitive about this? Because maybe this is a reminder for me that both of these women are the same person. The same living being that is beautiful and silly and human. H.U.M.A.N. With cute “rolls” and “pudge” and happiness. That is enough. Maybe it’s a reminder that those voices don’t go away. Even if you’re in a good space, having good days. They creep in without hesitation. Maybe this is a reminder to acknowledge these feelings but remember they don’t own you anymore. Not this time. Maybe this is a reminder to say I am here, with you, going through things along side you, my sisters/brothers. We are strong together. we are here to help, and to heal, and to love. 💜 .
In case you need a reminder, YOU ARE LOVED.
Today in my business class, we filled out questionnaires about ourselves as a self-discovery process before building our logos. One of the questions asked us what our fears are. One girl read her completed questionnaire out loud to the class, going down her list of answers. I had noticed at the beginning of class that this girl was very thin, but thought nothing more than that – it was just an observation. But then she read her list of fears: “I am afraid of being fat and ugly.” Other students listed the fear of being lonely, fear of failure, fear of being unsuccessful, etc. It broke my heart that the worst thing this tiny girl could think of – the thing she is most afraid of – is getting fat, which, to her, is synonymous with “ugly”. I thought about that all day. Health and the idea of what it means to be “healthy” is something I have struggled with all my life. I have gone through hell and back battling anorexia and struggling with mental health for years. I have learned many things throughout this process, not the least of which is that ➡️fat is not the enemy.⬅️ People are not afraid of the actual amount of fat on their bodies, they are afraid of losing their status of what society has arbitrarily deemed “desirable”. I am not afraid of being fat. For a long time, I thought that was my fear – but even at my lowest weight, I did not love the thin, sickly girl I saw in the mirror. None of us are afraid of being fat, OR ugly, for that matter. We are afraid of being unloved. And with that said, I invite you to do something radical today and give yourself the love you seek – unconditionally, without judgment, without fear. I’m rooting for you.

🛑 Thinking Intuitive Eating is complicated or difficult
Are you struggling with intuitive eating? Learning? Doing your best?
And that’s cool. This takes time. You do your best in every moment. But one thing I can’t get over is the amount of rules around food that diets/family have created
You are not learning anything. In fact. Your unlearning everything
All the rules around food diets told you to do to lose weight
All the rules you created yourself because we’ve been told you give food a “moral value »
All the negative 👎 relationships your family has engrained in you since childhood
And here is the straight up truth. You may not be responsible for believing all those lies/bullshi*t
But once you become aware. You are 120% responsible and empowered to decide whether those beliefs are effective or ineffective in finding your happiness and joy in life
When we’re born. We aren’t born with rules. When you’re hungry. You cry until you get fed. When you were a kid. You ate when you wanted. What you wanted. And how you wanted
Then rules started being placed. You HAVE to finish your plate. You HAVE to eat more veggies before dessert. You HAVE to stop eating this and that so you’re not a chubby child 🧒 You HAVE to eat at this time and that time or you don’t get to eat at all
So. What’s one rule around food that is not serving you anymore? That’s not effective in finding #foodfreedom or happiness? Let me know and let’s start some curious as a cat 🐈 conversation 👇👇
"I feel guilty when I'm taking a rest day" - a message that I received last week.
I want you to think about two things:
## 1. Taking a rest day, when you need it, is not a crime. You didn't steal, rob, cheat or kill - ***you simply didn't work out*** ##
2. I'm taking rest days when my body is tired. Doing what's right and healthy for me simply can't make me guilty. The opposite, forcing myself to go despite being exhausted, would wrong and unhealthy in this situation. So why would I feel guilty doing what's right for me?
I took Saturday and Sunday off, but I walked and even jumped into the pool a few times. I didn't sit around all day, I never do, I just don’t like it. I like to stay in motion but not all day long, and not all movement needs to be working out. And maybe there are days when you actually need to throw your legs up the wall - then do it.
We're too focused on the outside - what workout to do, how many reps, was it enough miles, how much did the weight go down this week - that we forget to focus on the inside. What do we really need? And doing what we really need to do, making the best choice for our health, should never make us feel guilty.
What 1 fruit and 1 veggies do you always have in your home? Bananas and lettuce is the trend at our place. I dont think garlic or onions count but we always have those too. Maybe it's a Filipino thing but we use garlic like on everything!
WHY #slimmingworld , WHY? 😭😭 These are no longer 'syn' free apparently!
Just one of the many reasons I disagree with these diets.
No food is a syn/sin (apparently it stands for synergy, they could have picked a better word but 🤷) Losing weight = calorie deficit.
Learning to do this for yourself means you never have to lose weight, come off the diet, put the weight back on, piss yourself off, feel like shit and go back on a diet.
Track your calories, even just for a while, look at foods you are eating, cals you are consuming, patterns! From there work out how many cals you should be eating and decide on how to create your deficit. When you are happy with your body (not focusing on scales here) cals back up to maintenance slowly but surely and there you have it! ❤️ If you need help, ask and I will gladly show you how to do it yourself! No diets. 😘😘😘 #coach#caloriedeficit#calories
life has been crazy! school is interesting and terrifying, i had my six months since being back from utah, just so many things! i’m constantly busy which i love because it’s a distraction, but it’s taken away from me doing yoga, baths, and self care. any tips on balancing things? sending good vibes out to y’all. -lo #fuckdiets#bodypositive#bodypositivity#aerie#aeriereal#scrunchie#curvy#anxiety
It’s not going to happen overnight✊🏻 Someday soon you’ll notice your clothes starting to fit better or that you have more energy throughout your day..👖⚡ You’ll have those small wins where you can do a move without modifying or experience an amazing non-scale victory..💪🏻 Then someday >when you least expect it, someone is going to take a picture of you and you’re just going to cry tears filled with so many emotions trying to fathom the fact that the person in the picture is actually YOU..😭 But NONE of that is going to happen if you cave every time you see something you want to eat.. and indulge..🍕 It’s not gonna happen if you keep trying out all of these fad diets and crazy ‘quick fixes’ that will actually deprive you and leave you feeling defeated...🖕🏻#fuckdiets
And NOTHING will happen if you don’t just get off your fucking ass and TRY SOMETHING!! #toughlove ..💓 If you’re ready to create a healthy, SUSTAINABLE future for yourself and be a positive influence to those around you?
If you’re ready to learn and implement them into your life I cannot WAIT to chat with more of you about your fitness goals🙌🏻
I wasn't going to post this, but I've decided I'm sick of people telling me that I'm 'lucky' that I'm not overweight.
No bitch, I've worked hard. I put on fat by over-eating and under-exercising and I've fixed my shit by sorting out what I eat and working out. It's basic maths: energy input versus energy usage. I still eat all the crap I enjoy, but in moderation and factor in extra exercise when I do go overboard.
Fuck fad diets, fuck clean eating bollocks, just be sensible and stop lying to yourself. It's easier than you think. If I can do it so can you.
More importantly than any of that is to be happy with who you are. If you're happy the way you are, regardless of what shape you occupy, then fuck everyone else. But if you aren't happy with you then go do something about it. Be confident to be yourself.
below are coping skills that have (with lots of practice) helped me immensely & I hope they help you too!💖
• write three or more “my body can” statements everyday •make notecards that have body/intuitive eating quotes, “I am”, and “my body can” statements & read them to yourself when you need them
• Do grounding for 5: list 5 colors you can see, 5 sounds you can hear, & 5 things you can touch when you need help bringing yourself back into the moment
• talk to yourself like you’d talk to your best friend
• keep a mantra of “I am” statements taped on your mirror and read them aloud when needed

There are no "good" or "bad" foods. Of course an apple is not nutritionally equivalent to a cookie, but it is morally equivalent. You are not good for eating an apple or bad for eating a cookie!

i’m struggling really hard with this at the moment.
anxiety is everywhere.
and i feel trapped.
i have been doing my best to live through it, to still be social and communicate my struggles with my friends when needed: it still sucks.
i’m doing my best.
and that is the most important thing.
if you struggle with anxiety; I FEEL YOU.
YOU ARE NOT ALONE.
YOU CAN DO THIS.
Your body can handle eating 2000-2400 calories without huge changes (e.g gaining weight), if your metabolism is healthy. Yes I may be generalizing because our weight, height and body composition matters too, but I want to make my point.
Even if you don’t crush a hard workout every day but train moderately ⬆️ and eat about 2000-2400 cals per day, your weight can stay very stable. ##
When I’m telling my hypothalamic amenorrhea clients that they need to start eating way over 2000 calories a day, they’re in shock because they’ve been eating half of this for years. They think that I’m crazy.
Of course, going from 1200 and working out an hour per day, to 2400 and not working out, will lead to weight gain which is the goal. Food and rest are 🔑 to restore your health.
But later, when your body is completely recovered and balanced, eating about 2000-2400 calories a day is not going to make you gain weight because your metabolism becomes more efficient (which it is NOT if you’ve been starving yourself for a long time). It’s going to USE these calories.
I know plenty of people who are moderately active, training 3-4 days a week and other days, walking enough but not over exercising. They get good sleep, which is another 🔑 to healthy body. And they eat amounts that would look enormous for someone who’s been eating a 1200-calorie diet. They have their occasional bagel, ice cream or pizza but don’t stress about it- the third 🔑 They don’t gain weight because their bodies are in homeostasis.
Don’t be afraid of calories! They heal, fuel and energize you. Once your body has come to balance after years of restricting, you get your sleep right and you stop feeling guilty for every bite you ate, you can eat much more freely without putting on weight.
Many of you know that 17 months ago I sat on a beach in Mexico and bottomed out on 25+ years of compulsive dieting.
My road to recovery has been long, winding, steep, and often treacherous.
This weekend I returned to Mexico for the first time since I stood in the waters of the Caribbean and promised myself I'd never go on another diet again, even though I had no idea what lay ahead...
All I knew was that I hated myself. I hated my body. I hated the obsession, the perseverating thoughts, the constant self-bashing.
So, one step at a time for 17 months I stayed in the deep, difficult and ultimately liberating process and finally landed in a place of self love and acceptance.
And this weekend I got to experience walking around in a bathing suit with complete freedom. I got to be on a beach with all the bodies and acknowledge and honor every single one of them and not use a single one as a battering ram against my own worth.
And I got to do a photo shoot right in the very water that I stood in 17 months ago promising myself I would get better.
I'm still in process; I may never be fully healed. But I am definitely better, and man oh man am I grateful.

If you’re a health care professional reading this, please understand that not every patient is the same. If you’re someone with mental health or chronic health problems- you’re not alone in not wanting to go to the doctors or dentist. Compassion for others is literally free. Having health problems is difficult enough without the constant pressure from other specialisms telling you to ignore advice given from another incredibly intelligent individual with an equally as valuable doctoral degree in another field. It’s a sad world when you no longer feel you an access just a “standard” dentist and need to look at dentists for people with special needs after 2 visits because they cannot understand that you’re poorly because of other health diagnoses and byproducts or side effects of medication. As for diet don’t even get me started. If I followed the correct diet for every diet I’ve been told to follow through endocrinology, heart, dentistry, diabetes I’d literally be able to drink tap water and nothing else. 18lbs lost through my OWN hard work and I have no intention of stopping. I would urge that health care professionals think before they lecture, threaten to starve me and lock me in a cage. You’ll just carry on with the rest of your day but to sensitive, health compromised individuals those comments leave marks and aren’t so easy to undo. And to those who work in the health care profession who are understanding, I thank and commend you from the bottom of my heart. #rant#rantover#health#menshealth#stigma#fightthestigma#mentalhealth#depression#bipolar#anxiety#bpd#heart#diabetes#endocrinology#mentalhealthawareness#chronicillness#doctor#healthcare#dentist#dentistry#diet#fuckdiets#healthyliving#weightloss#weightlossjourney#selfimprovement#toomanyhashtags

When I first started meeting with my dietician she set me up with an app called Recovery Record where she could see me log my meals along with my emotions before, during, & after those meals. I found this quote on that app when I first started using it & it has helped me so much. You’d never tell your best friend that they look bloated so they shouldn’t get the nutrients that they need for the day, so why would you tell yourself that? Often times we are so hard on ourselves which just leads to shame & guilt, allowing yourself to eat & breathe will always be more beneficial than restricting food & making yourself work tirelessly. Be gentle & kind to yourself always ✨💕
SUNDAY PEP TALK// COUNT MOMENTS NOT STEPS: 💏
Hey guys, this week on the blog I get a little bit vulnerable. *Bleugh* I didn't mean to if I'm honest - but this week I'm going through some a big life change and the reason for it stems from the new perspective I got on life from losing my Dad in March.
*❗ TW: Yup, this post talks about loss so feel free to scroll on past if that's going to be upsetting.❗*
Seriously, you think you know how precious life is and how you must take every moment to appreciate it, but until you experience death of a parent or a close loved one I’m not sure it really sinks in. At least, it definitely didn’t for me and I’d been writing gratitude lists for years.🌈 •
So many of us are wasting our WHOLE LIVES trying to change what we look like when these are literally just the shells we get to hang out in for a bit. Seriously guys, we are not our bodies. 🚫 •
Diets (in whatever form that might look like for you, formal or informal) sell us the mythical idea that in order to be happy we must hold out for a time in the future 'when...e.g. I've lost 10lbs'. But we are losing out on the one shot we get at this life. 💖
It is with an open heart I share my experience of what happened to me because it's really informed how passionate I am about my work you and my clients. 🌟💯 •
So this week, please: 🌟wear the stripes
🌟put your whole body in the sea instead of just your toes 🌟and laugh more with the intention of adding to the winkles. 🌟Count orgasms not carbs
🌟track moments of joy not macros 🌟 and let your PB be about adventure! •
The stakes are too high not to. Even if it’s only a baby step towards your dreams, take it.🦄🔥💖
Read about my experience on the blog now. link in the bio.
The reason I'm sharing this kinda person, morbid experience is because it's a huge part of my news that I'm leaving London! But why? And where am I going? Find out on the blog ;) 🖋
You are a made of magic. Time to accept your body and live your life. 💫
I see you, I love you. 💖

Tomorrow is Monday which means it's squat day, which this week is extra special
It's 20rep squats, 3 top sets of something heavy enough to cause temporary paralysis and to question your life choices up to that point
It will be hard, you will want to quit but it comes with rewards
Improved mental fortitude
A calorie deficit only a chinese buffet could fill

It's gonna be fun🍍
Hi guys I’m sorry that I have not been posting very often. School has been stressful and my emotions have been everywhere I’ve been dealing with a lot mentally emotionally and physically and haven’t gotten much sleep. My body image has been pretty bad to me but I know that it’s just eating disorder thoughts I’m trying to cope with those thoughts and distract myself from them. But, Today I have work at 8 o’clock in the morning and it was very stressful because I was training and trying to deal with a lunch rush and doing all that made me very anxious over the edge and I literally had a mental break down. This one guy ordered a bagel and my trainee accidentally charged him for two bagels so I went to go get my manager and she was busy but she came and I simply told him that she was coming and of course he saw that I was very stressed and that I had a little bit of anger in me so he had the decency to tell me that I was giving the trainee attitude when I wasn’t. Obviously if there is a lot of people and a lot of orders and a lot of drinks to make I will be stressed and I might take it out on somebody but I was not intending to be mean to her because I know that she was new and I was trying to help her as good as possible and I simply told him, “ Sir I’m not giving her attitude so I I don’t know what you want me to do.“ and he said “ I can see you’re giving her attitude why can’t you help her and do the refund for her” and I said “I’m not the manager so there’s nothing I can do. I don’t know how to refund” and kept going and I got all pissy and was laughing at him because he had the decency to tell me something I’m not doing. Accusing me. Like what the hell. I started to break down in tears, in the back of the store. It was so much for me. And i felt bad for the trainee because she was trying very hard. And I was trying to help her. But I just couldn’t anymore. Then I finally got to leave. And I’m sitting here in distraught about today. It was just terrible. And now all these thoughts are running though my head. I just hope it gets better.

WHAT PROBLEM?// 💯 It's so incredible when my clients suddenly start to see the things they've been telling themselves so long (e.g. my legs are disgusting, no one would find me attractive) as the BS that it is. •
Often the only thing that needs fixing is your thoughts darling.🔥
How to change your thoughts?
Well it starts with a whole heap of self-compassion - what would you say to your best friend who was crying? That's the same tone we're eventually aiming for in your brain. 🎆
And I find it helps to know that you're fighting against a cultural landscape of messages selling you false dreams. 🚫 •
Loving yourself takes work and it takes a long time to undo all the damage of diet culture. Be super, super kind to yourself on your journey. 💓 Write down one kind thing you can do for yourself today. •

Went a little shorter this time! I’m loving it! Like getting my hair done because it is 100% me time and I get to have a chat, a laugh and sit in peace for a while. Plus I love a good head massage 💜
Been feeling overwhelmed lately with all the things I’m trying to do. Some times I feel like everything is up to me and there is no one to fall back on. Most of the time this is empowering and motivating to me, but every now and then I let the pressure and overwhelm get to me. This too shall pass I guess 😊
CAN I EAT XXX AND LOSE WEIGHT?
I hear this question ALL THE TIME, and it's such a toughie.
We know certain foods are gonna make it harder for us to lose weight (cough cough, gelato...two glasses of red wine) but are there ways to include these foods and still see results? Are you obsessing over whether or not you can eat a cookie?
Before implementing super simple nutrition strategies, I was obsessed with food, constantly thinking about what I should eat next, and still not making any progress towards my body change goals. Now, I barely even think about my eating and I’ve seen marked change in my body shape.
There are so many programs out there that give you one-size-fits-all meal plan and workout program without any customization, coaching, or accountability. If you do a Google search right now, you can find thousands of free downloadable workout and nutrition programs. Pick any of them, and I guarantee you're going to get the same results: inconsistency, frustration, and a shit ton of guilt about why you couldn't just stick with it.
In #ConsistentlyLean , I break it all down for you so that you can find the way of eating that works for YOU, without obsessing over it or getting restrictive.
Double tap if you are SO over restriction, and check out the link in my profile to grab one of the few remaining spots for Consistently Lean Coaching.
