Nutrition for women
Most of us women live out of sync with our brain and body chemistry meaning that we don’t eat in a pro-hormonal way that gives our endocrine system the building blocks it needs to keep our hormones balanced. Most of the one-size-fits-all nutrition advice we as women get, is designed primarily for the male hormonal ecosystem without taking our hormonal fluctuations and our 28-day period cycles into consideration. We have a holistic approach to nutrition that you can approach for prevention, in case of health problems, or for weight loss.
In the case of complaints such as fatigue, stress, painful periods, intestinal problems, or depression, the added value of a good diet is often underexposed or even overlooked. What you eat affects all levels; physically and mentally. If things go structurally wrong with digestion, chances are that things also will go wrong in other places in your body. And it’s not just limited to what you eat. Feelings such as anger, sadness, fear, or concern that you do not express or process sufficiently, can cause overloaded organs and eventually cause illness. Due to upbringing, culture, or certain circumstances in life, it may be that you have not been able to process some emotions.
As a whole food nutritionist, mental coach, and hormone trainer, our partner The Health Collab pays attention to all these areas when it comes to health. Eating differently and exercising more is of course important, but your genes, environment, and how you deal with stress also have a major influence. Our focus on hormonal imbalance ensures that we get the right information to work with you on the root cause instead of only symptoms.
A complete hormone-proof diet can significantly improve your health and how you feel, offer support and reduce your complaints. After the program, you will have insights into your behavior and knowledge about nutrition that contributes to your health.
Maybe you have already tried plenty of diets, but the weight comes back twice as fast afterward? This is physically and mentally exhausting. Are you tired of it and do you want to get started with a healthy body and mind? We don’t like saying the word weight loss as it emphasized the notion that being thin equals beauty or health. Instead, we name it self-nurture and care. We focus on tasty and whole foods. We also look at your behavior around food and what you think about yourself.
Emotions are also a tool that often gets under-looked. We all have needs such as comfort, security, warmth, safety, and wanting to be seen or heard. We haven’t always learned to express these. Without realizing it, we start coping with these emotions using food. Eating or not eating can be a surrogate for what you are missing. This is where mental coaching comes in handy.
Also, to lose weight successfully, it is essential that your body gets enough nutrients. Food that nourishes, and ensures that you lose excess weight, get more energy, and feel better about yourself. If you understand where your eating behavior comes from and what function it has for you, you can truly take care of yourself. First mindset and behavioral changes, then come weight loss!
