Breaking Rigid Food Rules- Client Jean


The Paul Dermody Podcast

Through the podcast I want to share with you first the fundamentals of nutrition, no fads. On top of that I want you to reconnect with the joy in food through appreciation, choice and autonomy. I will share ideas from expert guests as well as poignant stories from clients of mine from those seeking weight nuetral outcomes all the way to those who have lost over 150 lbs.

In today’s episode I chat with my client Jean about her 50 pound weight loss. We discuss her journey and beliefs around food and her weight loss. We delve into how Jean learned to give herself permission around food and how by breaking away from rigid food rules and yo-yo dieting she finally got the result she wanted and knows how to maintain it.
