  •  do I need to track food (no)
  •  do I need to track my weight (hell no)

Discovery Call Sample

Usually clients are eager to share their story, problems they’ve faced, their goals, and the good/bad experiences from other providers they’ve seen such as doctors or other dietitians. They also usually like to share if they’ve been referred by their therapist. People usually assume that being in-network means insurance will cover nutrition appointments, but this may not be the case. They still need to find out if their plan covers nutrition counseling.

How is Heart-Centered Nutrition Coaching Different?

Compare Diet Culture’s Blueprint to Health Culture’s Blueprint vs. our Heart-Centered Nutrition Coaching!




Diets work if you try hard enough.

“Bootstraps baby!”


Lifestyle change works if you stick with it and work hard to manage your weight. As long as you’re still thinking about good/bad foods and vigilant about weight, there’s a tally in your head which means it’s a diet in disguise. 

Bodies aren't meant to be controlled

Bodies aren’t meant to be controlled and manipulated.  They’re meant to be cared for and nourished.


One-size-fits-all food plan.

Rigid rules. All-or-nothing. 

Not realistic.

BMI defines “healthy” weight.

Food rules are a bit more flexible, but they’re always there. 

Vigilant “policing” yourself and feeling guilt/shame for “bad” choices.


Flexible within a structure that roots into your core values. Different contexts offer different options.

Non-diet approach. 

Permission to be human.

Weight Loss is Goal!

Weight loss is the goal. No pain, no gain. Self-discipline and self-control will get you there. 

Weight Control

 Weight control shows you’re “successful” and you’re doing it “right.” Or if you “fail” you probably didn’t try hard enough.  

Bodies aren't public property

Weight can’t tell us anything about a person. It might be a symptom of something health-related, or it might not. Bodies aren’t public property to be judged.

Lose Weight

Lose weight to look a certain way 

Lose Weight

Lose weight to be healthy

Peaceful relationship with food.

Build a peaceful relationship with food. Develop body-positive insights to feel more at home in your skin.

Thin = Valued

You need to be thin to be beautiful, respected, taken seriously, valued, and loved.

Healthy = Valued

You need to be healthy (and thin enough) to be respected, taken seriously, valued, and loved.

You Deserve Respect

You deserve to be respected, taken seriously, valued, and loved no matter what.

I like myself when others like me.

 I want others to like how I look. I will like myself better if others like me.

I'm Good at Being Healthy

I want others to know how hard I try, and how good I am at being “healthy.”

Self-Care is a Personal Matter

Others may never know what my self-care is like, but I do it because I care about myself. 

I'll be so happy when I'm thin!

When I’m thin I will _______.  Assumptions about thinness might include having a better relationship, feeling confident, and self-respect. 

My problems will be over once I'm healthy.

When I’m healthy I will _________.  

Assumptions might sound like diet culture. For ex. needing to hit specific health goals for your desired life. 

I love myself now; not at some point in the future.

 I care for my body because I love myself. My life starts today, not 20lbs from now. 

Self-compassion is a powerful motivator.

Thin = Fit

I am thin and fit. Full stop.

Health is all about eating right and moving.

Eat right, move regularly. Healthy weight.

There are many facets to a healthy body.

Be kind to your body.

Health is holistic and includes emotional, social, physical, and many other dimensions.  

Self-care is a personal journey. 

Yo-yo Dieting

Yo-yo dieting. Diet fatigue. Guilt and shame. The body defends weight with age, and diets don’t “work” anymore. 

Feeling like I can’t try hard “enough”.

Weight Cycling up and down

Likely weight cycling up and down with food goals during different times in life. This might include guilt, frustration, feeling overwhelmed, and defeated.  Feeling like I can’t do “enough.” 

Decreased preoccupation with food

You are enough.  Starting from a place of “enough” is a much more peaceful way to motivate self-care. 

Decreased preoccupation with food and weight and increased self-love.
