After struggling for many years with various eating disorders (bingeing and purging, starvation, dieting, fasting, chewing and spitting, etc.), I had to find a way to recovery for good. And I did. The solution is what I later called Empowered Eating. During that struggle I had no idea that my struggle would become the solution others had been looking for. And I certainly never had the intention of creating something called Empowered Eating.
If I could describe Empowered Eating in one sentence, I would say it’s a way of making decisions about food that are congruent with your long-term health goals and your true values. It’s NOT another diet and I don’t even think it’s a philosophy.
If you’re reading this, you probably value your health and wellness above anything, but you’re constantly sabotaging yourself with destructive food choices. Maybe you eat at night. Maybe you eat well beyond your satiety point. Maybe you eat foods that you know you shouldn’t, but you do it anyway. You feel this constant tug-of-war in your head every, single, day, and you want it to end.
You might think the solution is to eliminate all your favorite foods, or carbs, or animal products, or fat, or grains. I fell into this trap many times. I thought one ingredient or one type of food was the problem. If I could only eliminate that one thing, then everything would be okay.
But this approach never worked. Willpower never worked. More commitments didn’t work. Sharing my problems never worked. Nothing worked. The only thing that worked is what I would later called The Empowered Eating System.
Whether you’re a binge eater, an anorexic, or a chronic overeater, Empowered Eating is what you’ve been looking for. You don’t need another diet. You don’t need another diet book. You don’t need to exercise more. You need to change the way you make decisions, and that’s exactly what I teach.
