I know you probably have some doubts like:

  • Is intuitive eating really for me?
  • I've tried everything - how will this be any different?
  • If I eat whatever I want, whenever I want, I won't be able to stop!
  • I've tried eating when I'm hungry, stopping when I'm full, and allowing myself to have what I want in moderation - it still didn't work.
  • I'm scared of gaining weight.
  • I need to follow my diet for health reasons.
  • I can't recognize hunger or fullness cues, so how could this work for me?

Those are all super valid concerns to have! Here are some things that may help:

  • Is intuitive eating really for me?
  • YES! Intuitive eating is a self-care approach to eating that is made to be highly individualized to your own goals, needs, and preferences.

  • I've tried everything - how will this be any different?
  • Every diet, nutrition program, tracking app, and 'lifestyle plan' is rooted in restriction. Even the ones that promote 'moderation'. Intuitive eating is an against-the-grain approach to food & nutrition that allows you to work WITH your body, not against it.

  • If I eat whatever I want, whenever I want, I won't be able to stop!
  • Despite what you may have heard, intuitive eating isn't a free-for-all! It's a self-care approach to food & nutrition that's guided by 10 principles.
  • This course will walk you through each principle that will teach you, step-by-step, how to remove the restriction, reframe your thoughts around food, and make peace with ALL food in a way that WON'T leave you feeling out of control.

  • I've tried eating when I'm hungry, stopping when I'm full, and allowed myself to have what I want in moderation - it still didn't work.
  • Diets and nutrition programs are starting to co-opt intuitive eating language in their marketing (cool, right? *cue eyeroll*). That includes taking 2 of the 10 intuitive eating principles and turning intuitive eating into a 'hunger/fullness' diet - which it's not. Also, even the term 'moderation' implies restriction if you find yourself not truly allowing yourself to have exactly what you want, when you want it OR if there are any feelings of guilt or shame after eating that food. Because restriction is the at the root of the problem and is what keeps the diet cycle going, you'll learn how to break that restriction here.

  • I'm scared of gaining weight.
  • That's a valid concern. This is one of the biggest pain points diet programs and our health/wellness industry uses to keep people stuck in a dieting cycle.
  • The thing is, ironically, dieting is one of the main predictors of future weight gain!
  • Intuitive eating has been shown to reduce weight cycling and allows your body to settle in a weight that is healthiest for you.
  • Intuitive eating is a weight-neutral program, so while this course doesn't focus on weight as an outcome measure, it does include body image work and resources to help you feel better in your body.

  • I can't recognize hunger or fullness cues, so how could this work for me?
  • Dieting is notorious for creating disconnection from your body's cues. Think about it - there are literally rules that tell you what, when, and how much to eat which makes it easy to question your body.
  • This course will help you reconnect with those cues and teach you to learn to trust them in a strategic and effective way.

With this course, you can expect to experience LESS:

  • Anxiety around food
  • Brain space taken up by food
  • Bingeing 
  • Emotional eating
  • Body image concerns
  • Guilt and shame after eating food you love

And experience MORE:

  • Connection with your body's hunger & satiety cues
  • Enjoyment from foods you love
  • Body appreciation
  • Confidence in yourself & in your food choices
  • Overall life satisfaction
  • Energy in & out of the saddle

But don't just take my word from it! Hear what graduated clients are saying:

"Your classes are still the best thing that ever happened to me."

-Adult ammie

"Since I started working with The Equestrian Dietitian [through the Buck Diet Culture program], I have lost a lot of the stress and worry around nutrition. I have gained freedom and clarity around foods that support me in my everyday life and my riding goals. All by applying intuitive to diet and trusting my body to guide me. I highly recommend her program to my horse friends + anyone who needs to gain clarity around nutrition ."

-Tiffany P.

"Once of the best things to happen to me . . .!"

-Jennifer W.

"I used to spend so much energy and time worrying about food, trying to eat less, counting calories...and I'd have no energy to ride, get tired, feel dizzy, have worse anxiety. Intuitive eating and rejecting diet culture made such a difference in my physical and mental health!"
