"I can have my favourite foods at home, enjoy them, put them away and forget about them. I don't need to binge on them because they're not a treat, they're just part of my everyday diet. And I'm eating far less of that sort of thing now that it doesn't feel forbidden or greedy. I love knowing that food has been put back in its proper place in my life and I feel free."
"For over a decade I looked at food as something to be analyzed, calculated or binged on. I thought I was naturally one of those people who could never stop eating. Now, I eat when I'm hungry, I don't have guilt trips, I don't binge. Food is no longer the centre of my happiness. It's been transformational."
"Before this program, I truly believed that I needed to lose weight for my health. Throughout the Food Freedom Program, I found myself regularly blown away by the realisation that almost everything I thought I knew was wrong. I now have such freedom around food and my choices that I can’t quite believe I’m the same person. My weight has stabilised and I no longer waste hours of my life planning meals, calories and exercise. I eat what I feel like when I’m hungry and I know that I am honouring what my body needs."
"Now I eat what I feel like, when I feel like it. I am not starving all the time and I'm not craving foods because I no longer deprive myself of them. I'm not thinking about food all day and I am not binge eating. I am also not trying to "earn" my food anymore. I am enjoying food and enjoying life again. I have so much more freedom in my life, in my food, my movement and brain space. This program has brought me a sense of appreciation for myself, the desire and capacity to trust myself, self compassion and my love of life again."

"I had dieted for 50 years and no program or other professional had helped me work through the disordered eating habits I've had for that long! Now for the first time I can listen to my body and trust it. I can even keep ice cream in the house and forget about it!"
"I don't think about food and the choices I make surrounding food nearly as much which would never have happened without this program. My use of food as a coping mechanism has become much less apparent, and I have an easier time listening to when and how much food my body needs. No more guilt, bingeing or thinking about my weight all the time!"
"My relationship with food was out of control and I saw my body as 'a temporary phase.' The program and the group calls were so supportive and helped me see I wasn’t alone in this. Nadia helped me cultivate absolute acceptance of all foods in my diet and understand that all foods have purpose which has been transformative in feeling peaceful around food and my body. Even though I was familiar with body acceptance, I couldn't apply it to me! Your program solidified for me that I can think and feel the same way about my own body - at peace with it all and not at war."
"I was desperate before starting this program. I’d tried every diet and spent all of my adult life caught up in my own head with weight and image related thoughts. Now I’ve moved beyond all of the food rules I had (and didn’t know I had too!) and can eat in connection with my body and its needs which I never thought possible!"

I support folks who aren’t happy with their relationship to food and body, find liberation AKA what works for them and how to do more of it. I’m your guide to this process of re-connecting with and trusting your innate body wisdom. The wisdom that knows what you need in order to nourish and take care of you.
"Before this program, I was absolutely obsessed with my weight. Now, my life has completely changed. I respect, care and honour my body. My life has completely opened up and transformed! What a relief to have found food and body freedom!"
"Now I can eat when I am hungry and stop when I am not. I can trust my own body. Doing this program really has been life changing."
"Working through this program has helped me to normalise foods so that I can eat in a way that nourishes me without stress, guilt and eating past fullness. It almost feels like magic! I've never felt this good!”
"I was initially skeptical to do this work and yet working through the steps of unconditional permission to eat has truly changed my life! I thought I'd just want to eat burritos and ice cream non-stop. However the greater degree of body awareness I've gained and having healed the body shame I felt, I can now eat what and when feels good for me."

Imagine how much time and energy you would have for everything you love in life, if you were spending less time thinking about food and hating your body?
WONDERING WHETHER THE FOOD FREEDOM PROGRAM IS FOR YOU?
Here's some more information to help you make an empowered decision that's right for you.
Who is the Food Freedom Program for?
Folks who are struggling with their relationship to food and body and who are seeking more peace. Who know they can't do one more diet though feel unsure about what else to do and where to begin! It’s suitable for both beginners to Intuitive Eating and those who’ve already explored a little.
Not sure if you’ve got the time?
The time commitment each week varies between 50 mins and 90 mins for the 12 weeks of the program.
And yet for this time commitment, your entire life could change for the better.
Still want to lose weight?
This desire is so understandable in our thin-obsessed society where thin bodies are represented as the goal. The door to health, wellbeing, morality, acceptance, love, belonging. This patriarchal belief is one we were all led to believe in and yet it also doesn’t make it true.
You have full body autonomy when it comes to the desire for intentional weight loss. If however, you are done with the trauma of dieting and body loathing, there is another way. You can learn about, and come to accept (in time) that we do not have ultimate control over our weight and the the cost of trying to manipulate and control our weight is very, very high. Restriction is miserable.
You can also learn to trust that your body will find its happy place with no micromanaging required. This is healthier and happier for our bodies and our quality of life. And this is what allows you to experience body respect, appreciation and neutrality that leads to more comfort and confidence.
Zero of this is contingent on body size. Your body does not need to be something holding you back even if the outside world treats your body differently, that is if you live in a marginalised body.
Still hate your body?
It’s so understandable that societally, our weight is tied to our body image or in how we feel about ourselves. Whilst having positive body image, does include liking and appreciating your body, trying to change your body will never truly improve how you feel about your body and yourself.
It will in fact do the opposite where by continually chasing the illusion of the ideal (thin body), means never truly having peace or acceptance for ourselves. We can spend our whole life there or we can choose to opt out of that societal norm and work on body respect and acceptance instead.
Not sure if you’re ready?
How much have you lost to dieting? To body loathing? To the pursuit of intentional weight loss? Are you fed up with that loss of time, energy, money and life? Are you ready to show up for yourself in weekly calls and support? And move towards food freedom?
Then you’re ready.
Worried about the value you’ll get?
This program offers the most rapid results when it comes to food and body freedom because it’s high-level support, every week, for 12 weeks.
Via a proven combination of group coaching calls, fundamental Intuitive Eating lessons, 1:1 coaching calls and our private community.
Not sure this is the right time to invest in yourself?
If not now, then when? You are worthy of a full and expansive life without food and body worries.
Imagine waking up and not needing to make up for anything you ate? Imagine not even thinking about that and instead knowing what your body needs and feeling confident to honour that. This is possible for you and you are worth that investment.
What if I’m an introvert?
Me too! I hate groups. And yet, time and time again, it’s the group coaching calls that prove pivotal to the success of clients.
It’s where you'll feel incredibly heard and supported by women who feel the exact same way that you do. This is especially vital to your food freedom journey when friends, family, colleagues (and everyone!) is often very entrenched in diet culture and you may feel alone.
Like this past student shared about attending the live group calls….
“At first I felt very overwhelmed at the thought of being on a group call with as you said 'a group of strangers', but I have absolutely loved it and have felt very supported and have looked forwards to the calls each fortnight! I have never told any of my friends or family EVER about my struggles, so to feel comfortable enough to share what I have with the group is a true testament to how you run the sessions and invite openness in a completely non-judgemental way.”

How much time do I need to invest each week?
This program structure is intended to provide you the ultimate support over 3 months. Working towards your food and body freedom.

This high level of support will enable you to start making valuable and rapid shifts in your own life when it comes to food and eating.
Why are places limited?
For two specific reasons. Firstly, I am one human being who has a limited capacity in how many other humans I can support, well, at any one time.
And secondly, group dynamics are key to positive outcomes for all students. And keeping the groups small and well suited means all students benefit from my support and a close-knit community.

Yes! You will retain ongoing access to the program modules for its lifetime and in addition can download the the live group call recordings for yourself.
Is there 1:1 support?
Yes! In this Food Freedom program you receive 6 x 1:1 individual coaching sessions with Nadia (50mins each) via Zoom.
These sessions run every fortnight for the 12 week program and provide you the opportunity to unpack more deeply and refine what you’re learning in the way that can only be done individually.
