Frequently Asked Questions
What can I expect after reading this book?
You may feel annoyed at the way society has made us believe weight loss is the solution, yet on the other hand, feeling relieved and empowered to embrace an up-to-date evidenced-based scientific approach that works! You may feel resistance from your family and friends, which is usually because they do not understand the non-diet approach, and their reactions are more out of fear of the unfamiliar. Like anything, it takes practise, and the concepts presented within the e-book will become easier and eventually a habit.
How much time will it take to embrace the non-diet world?
This really depends on you, your previous experiences and current circumstances. How motivated are you at changing your behaviour? Where are you in the cycle of change (i.e. pre-contemplative, contemplative, action, maintenance, habit, relapse)? I recommend spending about 1 to 2 weeks on each concept discussed in the e-book, which will give you the opportunity to ask yourself the questions featured in many different situations, and to experiment with the activity. Changing your mindset around food and nutrition can take up to 3 to 6 months from my experience and this of course depends on your personal situation.
I’ve started looking into the non-diet approach, is this for me?
Yes certainly! The non-diet approach is for everyone. Please note that if you have certain chronic medical conditions, you may also need one-on-one support to ensure that your health is being managed in the most appropriate manner.
If you are experiencing any challenges to changing and with regards to fully aligning with the non-diet philosophy, this guide-book will support you in leaving the dieting world behind and reconnecting with your internal body cues so you can eat when you are hungry, stop when you are full and eat the food your body needs nutritionally and for pleasure.
Will I have a desire to lose weight after reading the book?
After reading the e-book, you will understand that weight alone does not impact your health. You may still have a desire to lose weight as this mindset takes time and the right support to change. Societal pressures are not going away quickly (it is changing though!), so you will likely still feel the misinformation and expectations, which continue to be challenges we are faced with prioritising our health. From this e-book, you will understand from your past experiences that weight cannot be controlled in the long term. You will understand the best way forward is to work on your behaviours around eating and your lifestyle, which feels so good and has such a positive impact on your health.
Just know that the non-diet approach is not anti-weight loss, but the pursuit of weight loss or actively trying to lose weight. We know self compassion is much more important than weight loss.
Will I lose weight?
Having reconnected with your appetite, you may find yourself eating less food in response to listening to what your body wants, and your weight may decrease. You may even find yourself eating more food in response to previously restricting yourself, and your weight may go up and then settle at your natural weight, which could be higher or lower than before. Weight cannot be controlled in the long term, so it is hard to predict what yours will do because of your genetics and your previous dieting history, which upsets your body set point. The point is that you can become healthy at any weight. You are not defined by your weight and you should not think or feel a certain way because of what the scales show. Because this question is such a common one, I definitely do not want to discount it and not address your thoughts and feelings around weight.
