non-diet approach to health
There has been a paradigm shift in the way many Dietitians and Nutritionists work in the area of weight concern.
We know 1/3- 2/3 of weight is regained within one year of following a weight loss diet and almost all is regained within five years.
There is now emerging evidence that a non-diet or health at every size ® approach is showing statistically significant improved health outcomes (both psychological and physical).
SOL's founder, Christina Turner is leading the way in non-diet approaches in Australia. She has been incorporating mindfulness and mindful eating into her practice for many years and via our mindful eating e-course and health retreats.
