In this episode, we had the pleasure of interviewing two-time client, Rachael, a registered dietician.
After losing weight using the strategies in 75 Hard, Rachael knew she was barely hanging on by a thread and couldn’t maintain the extreme restriction required that caused her to lose the weight.
At one point, her husband expressed concern about her dieting behaviors and feeling backed into a corner, Rachael relented and decided to give up dieting altogether.
As someone who experienced a classic history of yo-yoing with no long-term results to speak of, she decided she’d benefit from the structure and like-minded community offered in the Unstuffed program.
In this episode, Rachael opens up and shares the shame she experienced as a dietician who sought help in the very arena she had received a Master’s Degree.
She also shares her first experience in the program and why she later returned for more coaching.
In this week’s episode, Rachael shares:
- The biggest challenges she throughout the program and how she’s been able to execute the psychological tools she learned to remain consistent in her habits
- Rachael shares why she decided to try hunger directed eating and how the program helped her identify herself as a struggling perfectionist
- What holiday and social eating looks like for her now compared to years previous (hint: no more food anxiety, fear of losing control or feeling left out)
- Rachael’s BEST piece of advice for those who fear they’ll gain weight if they stop calorie counting and focus on weight loss through behavior change
