With instant access to nutrition information on the internet, and being blasted with nutrition information from friends, family, celebrities, cookbooks, and government campaigns, many people don’t consider that the nutrition information that they are finding might not be appropriate for them. If you would like to talk with someone who is actually in Perth, who can understand your specific nutrition concerns and navigate the barriers in your life, then you should consider working with a nutritionist.
Everyone has their own personal food rules, but not everyone is necessarily aware that they do. Food rules can be harmless or even beneficial, but they can also be unhelpful or actively harmful. Our aim is to help you let go of the limiting or preoccupying food and body rules, so that you can reconnect with your authentic self. With deep experience in the complex interactions between body image, weight, food, and feelings about the body, we support people on their journeys to developing more fulfilling and sustainable eating patterns. We’re aware that improvements in a person’s relationship with food will be accompanied by a complicated shift in how they feel about their body. With this in mind, we are dedicated to helping you overcome weight and image concerns.
Intuitry takes a weight-neutral approach to care. We believe in challenging current diet culture, and the negative impact of valuing some sizes and shapes over others. The weight-neutral approach acknowledges that people come in all shapes and sizes, and that each individual’s body is unique and beautiful. Weight-neutral practitioners work with their clients to empower them in their food choices, so that they feel confident in eating patterns that focus on nourishing the body with nutrient-dense foods, rather than promoting restrictive diets or calorie counting.
Focusing on health, not weight
One of the key principles of the weight-neutral approach is to shift the focus away from weight as the primary indicator of health. Instead, practitioners focus on improving overall health markers such as blood sugar levels, cholesterol levels, and blood pressure. This approach recognises that weight is just one aspect of a person's health, and that it does not necessarily correlate with good health outcomes.
Another important principle of the weight-neutral approach is intuitive eating, which involves tuning into your body's internal cues for hunger and fullness, rather than relying on external rules or restrictions around food. By learning to trust your body's signals, you can develop a more positive relationship with food and improve your overall wellbeing.
At Intuitry, we believe in empowering our clients to make informed choices about their health and well-being. We recognise that everyone's journey towards health will look different, and we are committed to providing personalised support based on each person’s needs and goals.
