As a prediabetic, I knew about healthy eating through the diabetic eating plan. However, I often made last-minute decisions and ate poorly. This unique course has given me the missing keys to move forward with sustainable, healthy eating. Insightful personality profiles identified my eating instincts (such as plan ahead or go day-by-day; and eat three main meals or “graze”). And, I now have pragmatic tools for thinking out meal options ahead of time and ensuring that I have ingredients on hand, as well as tricks for healthy eating “on the run”.
There is also lots of useful course material, and we were encouraged to focus first on our top one or two priorities for manageable change. At 56 years of age, I finally feel that I have the awareness and tools to substantially improve my eating and overall health.
As someone interested in health and fitness, I jumped at the chance to take this course. Given nutrition can be confusing and overwhelming, I was able to revisit how much I thought I knew and what areas I can improve on.
You could tell the amount of time and effort put into this comprehensive course based on the content and the delivery. Each module had a number of lessons and each had both video sessions and supporting materials to follow along. I really liked that she released the modules one at a time as this gave me time to go through them, but at the same time, kept me on track as I am a bit of procrastinator. I also like that we have unlimited access to the materials to go back and review them as needed.
One of the things I appreciated was that we were not told there was only one way to do something. Instead the course provided overall strategies and then we could ask questions in our members area and live chat sessions to help provide specific advice. After taking this course I now appreciate the benefit of experimenting, since this allows you to pay attention to how you feel and not be so mindless when you are eating. I now don't underestimate the value of planning ahead (even if it is only one day at a time which is what works for me).
I also have a better understanding of portion sizes and that when it comes to weight management, more pounds are lost in the kitchen than in the gym. Lastly, it is great to be part of a community that doesn't eliminate soulful foods chosen for taste and enjoyment (after all life is too short to not enjoy every day - and that includes what you eat).
As someone who has had struggles with food most of my life I've found the Pursuit of Healthiness course has really helped me settle the "noise" in my head around food. I've learned to change the way I think about certain foods, have added those "forbidden foods" back to my diet and am learning how to not stress about slip-ups and enjoy eating again. I forgot what butter tasted like.
The approach, non-judgemental support and course materials are a no-nonsense way of thinking and learning to have a much better relationship with food. You work at your own pace to complete the modules and there is no pressure to be where everyone else is. The material is very helpful to work through your own personal struggles and is well laid out and easy to follow. Having a lifetime access is great as you can go back and refer to the information anytime. For me, I'm on a journey not a race.
I've gained so much more confidence in my food choices. I’m enjoying food more, cooking more and accepting life challenges without using food as a crutch. If I hadn't made the decision to take this course I would still be trapped in my poor choices and allowing all that "negative noise" to control my eating habits. I'm moving in a more positive direction. Thanks so much for your support.
