Redefining Foundations of Healthy Eating

October 29, 2019

Time: 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm PDT

In this webinar you will learn how to help folks describe their currently held beliefs about healthy eating, challenge the rules that don’t support their recovery, and re-define them based on their wise mind and personal values rather than society’s definition or their disordered beliefs.  Self-care comes with several stages. Identifying stages helps improve self-care and empower clients in their journey. Lynae will address how the window of tolerance model can be utilized with clients to identify and teach skills to help them navigate food choices.

Learning Objectives:

  • Challenge previously held definitions of “healthy eating”
  • Claim a new definition of health based on personal values.  What food factors determine your food choices?
  • Identify the 4 stages of nutritional self-care and when it’s appropriate to move ahead
  • Use window of tolerance model to determine skills which we can use to navigate food choices

About the speaker: Lynae Smith, RDN, LD owner of Ruby Health and Wellness group practice in Portland, OR and Bend, OR. 

So often the journey toward healthy eating feels like a war within. It seems like a tug-of-war that is exhausting, and more than anything we crave peace with food and peace with our bodies. Is this possible? Lynae believes the answer is yes! and she helps her clients in a personal journey towards trusting their body, and experiencing food in a new way: instead of frustration, freedom. Instead of fear, confidence. Instead of shame, dignity. All too often we have internalized an expectation that our body size is the thing that needs to be fixed.
