For a lot of women, our relationship with food has gone beyond nutrition and instead is used as a tool of restriction, avoidance, and shame. Stephanie Dodier experienced this vicious cycle in the way we relate to food and our body image and has set out to set the record straight on how we can use food to make peace with our bodies. A clinical nutritionist, speaker, and founder of Going Beyond the Food Academy, Stephanie is determined to help women find acceptance around food and body image.
Going Beyond the Food will help you reconnect with your wisdom around food so that you can become self-regulated with food and no longer be dependant on a diet to tell you what to eat or how much to eat. Stephanie is passionate about helping people repair the connection between what your body needs and what you will let yourself have in order to drive health at any size. Working on mindset, goal setting, tools and techniques around emotional intelligence can help you become the master of your own body once again.
When you are able to engage with food from a place of self-love, Stephanie believes that you can create positive habits and limit your restrictions to know how you feel and engage with food from a place of pleasure. Let us help you get to the place of loving yourself and being open to engaging with subcomponents of a healthy lifestyle to get yourself better at any size with easy to implement mindset and lifestyle changes.
