If you ate your way into it, you can eat your way out of it. All you need is information, and a whole lot of support.
That's what I do.
For instance, diet has been an accepted mode of reversing heart disease for many years now. Dr. Dean Ornish has been doing this for many years, and in fact was the first to have his heart disease reversal dietary program accepted by a major medical insurer (Blue Cross Blue Shield) as an ALTERNATIVE to coronary bypass surgery. Likewise, type 2 diabetes is also being reversed with the same kind of dietary program, which involves boosting your nutritional intake through the roof by teaching you how to eat a whole foods diet. What are whole foods, you ask? Well, those would be....real food. Things that do not come in a plastic wrapper or a cardboard box, by and large. Those are things that are nutrient rich instead of nutrient poor, and result in your body feeling satisfied instead of developing cravings because it isn't getting enough nutrition. Those would be foods that don't leave you craving sweets, or nutritionally-bankrupt simple carbs.
If you're looking to "push the reset button", finally lose that weight, or improve your digestion, or fix those pesky problems getting enough sleep or good quality sleep; if you're tired of having low energy, and if you (and everyone around you) are over your mood swings and cravings, then it's time to take control and start fueling your body up in a way that promotes easy well-being, fabulous energy, and excellent health that everyone around you will want to share in. Everybody's going to want to know your "secret".
Regarding eating your way into dietary problems and fearing judgment from the woman on the other end of the phone who's found her way to her best weight (and is currently and very publicly getting fit at #CoundownTo50 @Marneycakes on Twitter) and who's ready and willing to help you...allow me to confess why there's no judgment here. I'm the woman who got off dairy when she was diagnosed lactose allergic and intolerant, and gradually went back on after 13 years "clean". (Never mind how that happened - it's a long story, and is irrelevant anyway. The point is that I did it.) Well, after that much time, you may well be ok - at least not showing outward symptoms of any problem, at least not for a while. But as the years rolled on and I got sicker and sicker, I knew what I had to do. Being a foodie of the first order and lover of artisinal cheeses, I can honestly tell you that no one understands like I do why one would be extremely reluctant to kiss beloved foods goodbye with anything less than a scary diagnosis or health incident to shake you to your foundation. I get it. I really do. I merely got lucky.
What shook me to my foundation was sitting across from someone who was already eating like I knew I needed to be eating, seeing her glowing skin and observing her lack of sniffling and sneezing, and noticing the contrast across the table in me: the one clutching the box of tissues, medicated to the bejeezuz and still sniffing, dripping, and wheezing (while tremendously dehydrated from all the meds I'd pumped myself full of to try and lessen my symptoms). That was the moment that crystallized it for me: I'd done something dumb in getting myself back on dairy again, but all that mattered was that as of that very moment, I was DONE. I'd suffered enough, and to suffer any longer just didn't make sense.
So when I say I don't judge you when you're coming to me for help...you know I mean it.
When I tell you "If you ate your way into it, you can eat your way out of it", it may sound overly simplistic. But it's really not. I can show you how to finally make permanent and realistic changes that will be your new habits for life. Once you've done it, you'll wonder why you waited so long.
