This time of year is hard enough without Diet Culture breathing down our necks!
You're trying your best.
You're trying not to beat yourself up for the office cookies, or the party cheese plate, or that extra glass of eggnog.
You're trying to remember to drink water, eat veggies, move your body, not engage in old patterns with your family.
Maybe this time of year brings up body image shit, or disordered eating patterns.
Maybe you think if you just exercise more, or sign up for a detox in January, or maybe just ignore it all, it'll be different this time.
Boo, you know as well as I do that the Detox Train is not going to take you anywhere close to the land of Healthy Relationship With Food, and in fact will drop you off and someplace right around Worse Off Than Before.
And over-exercising to try to combat your "indulgent" choices is only going to add stress to your stressed-out body.
Obviously if you're reading this you don't WANT to ignore your health!!
So what to do??
WHAT IF 2020 WAS THE YEAR YOU STOPPED TRYING TO FIX YOURSELF?
Because Queen, you are not broken.
Nutrition is hella confusing, and most of us didn't ever learn how to properly nourish ourselves growing up. Not only that, our relationship with food is often a venue for our strongly-held beliefs about ourselves to get played out, often in ways that actually make us sick.
What if you could acquire the tools necessary to:
Understand the signals your body is sending you
Fix your digestive issues
De-mystify and de-shame your “weird” behaviors around food
Understand why you have certain food cravings
Know exactly which nutrients you’re deficient in and how to adjust your diet to get what you need
Eliminate that afternoon energy crash
Shift your relationship with food from stressful to peaceful
Befriend your body
Enjoy, savor, and RELISH each meal
Experience gratitude and satisfaction on a daily basis
I want to show you how to do this!! If you don’t already know me, my name is Michelle Casey. I’m a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner, and a Certified Holistic Health Coach.
I started out as a personal trainer, and over the years became very frustrated at how little I was able to help my clients with a couple hours a week in the gym. The clients who had dramatic, satisfying changes were the ones who altered not only their diets, but also their relationship to food. When I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease in 2014, I knew I wanted to dive deeper into functional nutrition and really make a difference in my clients’ lives. Interestingly, though, the deeper I dove into the science, the more it seemed that I was still working superficially; we had just substituted handfuls of pills and unsustainable diet plans for workouts. I discovered that unless my client had a contextual shift – that is, a personal transformation – their chances of healing were much lower, let alone their chances of making long-term changes for their health. Enter The Relish™ Program.
I designed this program to START with that contextual shift, and to enable you to facilitate your own transformation, as well as giving you the tools and information needed to make smart choices that are aligned with your health goals.
There is no elimination diet in this program, no counting calories, no rigid meal plan. However, if you are following a therapeutic diet, you will definitely be able to apply these principles and get even more out of it!
What *is* included is training in how to track your signs and symptoms, to better understand what *your* unique body needs. Coaching to overcome the roadblocks that have stopped you from succeeding in the past. And enough nutrition science to help you understand why your body needs what it needs.
We’ll be approaching health from many different angles – a holistic view of how the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of your life are intertwined and how each affects the other.
Is this a bold undertaking? Hell yeah!! Honestly, this program sometimes feels like a wild experiment. Sometimes I am even amazed at how effective this approach is! And I know that in order to be true to my Self, I need to lead it. If you’re reading this, maybe you know that you need to participate. I truly believe that we are called to work with each other for a reason!!
So – the nitty gritty.
This class takes place over 8 weeks. Each group coaching session will be a live, interactive Zoom video call. Calls will be recorded, however, I recommend being live whenever possible.
Coaching sessions will be Tuesday at 6pm Pacific / 7pm Mountain / 8pm Central and 9pm East Coast Time. Each session will be 90 - 120 minutes in length.
The schedule and weekly topics are as follows:
Week 1: Intention and Observation - Tuesday January 28
Week 2: Shake Your Foundation - Tuesday February 4
Week 3: Optimizing Absorption - Tuesday February 11
Week 4: Nutrition Science - Tuesday February 18
Week 5: Bold Experimentation - Tuesday February 25
Week 6: Cravings Deconstruction - Tuesday March 3
Week 7: Mood Stabilization - Tuesday March 10
Week 8: Body Celebration - Tuesday March 17
You will have assignments each week, and I suggest you plan on spending 1-2 hours per week on each (although you may be quicker, and some of them are just a few minutes per day). As with anything, you get out of it what you put into it.
You will also be invited to a secret (meaning no one can see who is a member) Facebook group, for support outside of sessions. I'll do a Live Q & A session in this Facebook group once a week, generally on Thursday or Friday.
Friends, to do 1:1 coaching with me for 16 hours would cost about $4000.
Your cost for The Relish™ Program is only $597.
Act now to reserve your spot! You can even pay in two installments if you wish.
Please reach out to me at email@example.com if you have any questions.
If you’re ready to have 2020 be the year that you step into your full power and freedom in your relationship to food, I invite you to claim your spot now!
