If you are new to the non-diet approach, you may find that your clients feel disoriented without a diet plan and you feel unsure about how to guide them.  On one hand, you are excited to talk about the life changing and evidence based benefits that are possible.  On the other hand, you feel uncertain and second guess yourself.  

How do we help clients with meal planning without sounding like another diet?  What is gentle nutrition and how do we deliver it to clients in a way that still supports their health?

The My Fuel Mix™ Workbook, Meal Planning & Macronutrient Guide is the ideal resource for the client that wants to feel in control, have peace of mind about food choices and feel like they have structure without being on a diet.

Here’s what the clients have to say about using the My Fuel Mix™ framework:

“This is so much better than a forced meal plan.  I ask myself, ‘what do I actually want to eat right now?’ I feel in control and more normal (with food)”. – HG

“Reframing food as My Fuel Mix™ was game changing for me on my road to recovery.  I was able to adopt the new concepts I was learning at a pace that felt safe which gave me the confidence to challenge myself and my triggers.  Being able to remove the stigma and fear around certain foods gave me the tools I needed to work through unhealthy patterns and be able to live a life not defined by food rules, strict diets, and disordered eating.” -KT

“I have developed a healthier relationship with food.  I’ve learned how to let go of the diet mentality, embrace my body and explore food choices that nourish me.  With continued practice, I’ve learned how to be less rigid and more flexible.  I’ve learned about proper nutrition (which can include soda and ice cream!) and the complexity that makes lasting change difficult.  I now have a more balanced relationship with food and more importantly, myself.” – RO
