Testimonial : Food for Thought Programme27 Jul 2021, Posted by FYS News in
“I actually enjoy grocery shopping now!” Is this something you hear yourself say?
At the end of my Food for Thought programme, I ask the participants some reflection questions on what they have taken from the programme. I love the nuggets of insight that these reveal. When I asked Jill, who joined the last programme, what she had learnt from the programme she replied:
“I am no longer anxious in the grocery store because I know how and what to shop for. So I am enjoying choosing a wide variety of organic produce rather than a few staples….
“I finally feel like I really know what I am doing with food but also how my entire body functions around it. I have made very noticeable dietary and lifestyle changes.
“It has simplified something that has created a lot of noise (self-talk) inside me for a long time. I am eating better”
Food For Thought Programme 2021
Reading that, made me very happy.
I started out in nutrition in 2004. It was a time before the social media explosion. The challenge was to find information about nutrition and diet. Fast-forward 17 years and most clients I speak to are overwhelmed with information. The challenge now is to make sense of it all and to put all of that information into individual context.
Why I created the Food for Thought programme
I want to bring the concepts of personalised nutrition, lifestyle medicine into a group-based format that would teach people how to future proof their body and brain.
Some people, when considering joining the Food for Thought programme have said variations of:
“I know quite a lot about nutrition already. I am not sure I will learn anything new…”
1. Maybe what you know about nutrition and diet needs re-arranging or updating?
2. Could there be a hidden block to your wellness goals?
Reframing your thoughts about a belief that is holding you back can make all the difference.
How would you respond to these questions I pose when I hear the above belief? I would love to hear from you.
