Hunger and Fullness Fundamentals

Learn how to reconnect to your hunger and fullness cues without diet culture

Hi everyone, welcome to the Messy Health School! This course is all about redefining and reframing our relationship with hunger and fullness. It may seem so silly to focus on our relationship between hunger and fullness. But throughout my career as a clinical nutritionist and researcher, I have worked with many people who have anxiety, fear, excitement, or confusion when they are hungry, this can influence whether we take care of our body the way it deserves.
Many people don't realize they are restricting food, our society has normalized people (especially women and femmes) to be perpetually hungry and even find pleasure in hunger because it signifies the body shrinking and losing weight.
This course covers:
- What influences our relationship with food, hunger, and fullness
- What are the barriers stopping us from being able to listen to our body
- How to listen to the body and the different types of hunger
- How to strengthen your connection to your body
- How to shift your mind from self-hatred to self-care mode

- How to add more fun and joy to your relationship with food by incorperating the inner child

Messy Health is a company dedicated to creating an educational space for those working on their mental health, healing their relationship with food, feeling peaceful about their body, and taking back joy and pleasure in their life. Through my journey of developing peace around food and my body, coupled with my education in nutrition, food science, and psychotherapy, I have the knowledge and understanding to help facilitate healing around food, body image, the body, and how they all intersect. I also practice through a feminist, social justice, Health At Every Size lens and hold inclusivity and accessibility as a top priority.
