[Note: The Interviewer opens with this interview being about weight loss, which is common in the culture…but quickly begins to see that it IS the problem, not the solution]
Hi, I’m Barbara Birsinger and even as a well-seasoned nutrition professional (pardon the pun), I’m not here to tell you what to eat or how to exercise, because that wouldn’t work so well for you over time. The problem for most people is that knowledge and information are not the keys to the transformation of deeply ingrained behaviors. Knowledge and information can be helpful in treating diet-related diseases; however, most people want or need changes in in their eating and other life habits in order to improve energy, health and well-being.
Your other-than-conscious parts of your mind are working to hold in place the very behaviors you want to change – often steeped in old beliefs and identity – as a survival strategy. Until they get updated, long-term change is unlikely, no matter how hard you try.
The Good News is: Behaviors, beliefs and even identity can be revised! You can learn to re-set this part of your brain and generate new neuro-patterns for what you would like to experience, often quickly and lasting.
You can also restore your ability to hear and trust your body’s messages, the soft whispers that are now broadcasting from the wisdom of your own body. Nobody else gets your body’s wisdom but you!
I’d like to introduce you to a profound process I call, “The Intuitive Body” which helps you to be free of unwanted behaviors and to befriend your body. To make it easy for you to experience this for yourself, I’ve created the “Intuitive Body Quick Start Guide” so you can fully immerse yourself in Step One of The Intuitive Body Process.
With this complementary Toolkit, you’ll begin to:
Quiet your mind, calm your body and attune yourself to its wisdom
Transform your eating habits and body-talk, beginning with a Real-Time process
Trust your body to tell you when, what, and how much to eat at any time – no more “shoulds”. (This works also for knowing when, what and how much to move, relax, sleep, and other self-care practices)
You’ll also be invited to a valuable complimentary private session with me where you can discover some additional tools that you can put into practice right away, just for you.
If you’d like to see how you are doing now in terms of your eating, self-care and body image, you can find out in just a few minutes here: Eating and Body Image Quiz. Your results will be sent to you right away.
