Why do you want behavior-based Nutrition Coaching?
So what type of coaching do we provide at Mamas Maternal Health? Behavioral Based Coaching.
When you work with our dietitians, you will get hands-on knowledge regarding nutrition for the following stages; fertility, prenatal nutrition, and postpartum nutrition.
However, how do we implement that? Yes, we give you foods and nutrients to focus on during these times-- but we also give you tools on how to create sustainable lifelong habits within your nutritional lifestyle.
We believe in mindful eating and nourishing your body based on its needs. There is no better expert of your body than YOU! So instead of someone telling you how many calories or macros you need, you get to eat how you want. Sounds like a no brainer right?
For some, this style of eating is, well, just eating! However, we live in a world full of distractions and people/things telling you what you should and shouldn't do, including with food. We easily lose touch with ourselves where many can't even see themselves being able to 'trust their body'. But that trust comes when we pay attention and let our body tell us what it wants.
PSA: Did you know that babies are born with this sense and ability? If allowed, they will continue this skill for the rest of their lives. That being said, many children lose this ability in our current society due to 'American portion sizes' and societal norms.
We will walk you through how to begin to create a relationship with your body's signals (hunger/fullness, satiety, etc...).
"Well if I do that all my body is going to want is (insert 'junk-food' here)..." Yes, we did just read your mind! JK, but that is the response we get Every. Single. Time we introduce this practice, so you aren't alone.
When beginning mindful eating and behavior-based coaching, you will learn to both allow yourself access to these above mentioned foods and assess your feelings before, during and after you eat them. When you do this, you take out restriction which will allow your body to realize that it is not living in a place of scarcity. You will actually learn to ENJOY when you do eat these foods!
You may find that you become disenchanted with the actual food, and realize that your obsession with it was the restrictions you created. You will also see that you may be completely SATISFIED and FULL after just one cookie, brownie, donut, etc as opposed to the 3-5 that you used to eat. Through this, you create a great relationship with your body and with food, learning that you body is on your side and all foods fit!
How do we know? This is something that we (Cassie and Mikayla) both implement in our daily lives. We both had our own tumultuous relationships with food, however, once we learned about this approach, it became the only option.
We have built a healthy relationship with food. We have learned to love the food we eat. We have learned to love our bodies
You will also begin to see differences in your sleep patterns, digestion, overall stress, and believe it or not, relationships. Once you have a good relationship with YOU, it carries over into other aspects of everything you do in your daily life.
Behavior-based nutrition coaching is not just a diet or nutrition regime, it becomes a commitment to loving and bettering yourself. It is both a sustainable and rewarding personal transformation that you can carry with you for the rest of your life. You will also be able to pass this on to your children and help to create a better future of eating and self-love for generations to come.
