Problematic Eating

Problematic Eating is a term encompassing all eating that is causing you stress, anxiety, or any other problem in your life. You need not be overweight, or underweight, to experience this feeling.

Most people know what to eat for a “healthy lifestyle”, and most people want a lean, strong body.

Yet, so many of us seem unable to stick to a diet plan. Why is this?

There are many psychological factors that influence eating behaviour. Knowing what you should and shouldn’t eat is not enough; knowledge alone does nothing to equip you in your daily life.

Who this course is for

If you are looking for a lean, healthy body that you feel at peace with, one that will have enough energy to respond to your athletic demands, and one that won't feel deprived, then this course is for you. This course will help teach you:

  • to listen to your body, which is way more wise and intelligent than any Men’s Health magazine;
  • to find peace within your own body by making changes and nutritional decisions from the inside-out;
  • lifelong, habitual changes that won’t make you crazy, or feel deprived.

What this course is not

  • A diet. Diets don’t work. We’ll explore this in week 1, where we will give research-based evidence that it is the diet methodology, and not your willpower, that is at fault.
  • A meal plan. I’m not going to tell you what to eat, and there are no counting calories.
  • There are no strict rules on optimal nutrition, no macronutrient timings.

Nutritional habits that you can stick to consistently are far more important than any macronutrient timing guidelines. We are striving for lifelong change here.

Ready? Let’s do this!

A note on Eating disorders

I believe the implementation of ideas in this course will help anyone who is struggling with problematic eating, but for those suffering from extreme forms of anorexia, bulimia and/or binge eating disorders, you will likely need to seek further help with these issues. See the links at the end of the course.
