Being in sync with your hunger cues
Feeling controlled by food
Feeling free from guilt and enjoying food again
For years, the diet industry has promoted calorie counting and restriction, which leads to short-term weight-loss results
In addition, our eating habits are impacted by our past experiences, such as how our parents eat and speak about food, and how others comment on what we eat and how we look.
Dieting and our past experiences have led us to develop negative thought patterns
Food becomes all about calories in vs. calories out. There’s no joy in eating. Obsessing over food and what to eat. All of this leads us to develop a poor relationship with food that can trickle down to our kids.
We want to help you unlearn unhealthy thought patterns
So you can see food positively in your life, heal your relationship with food and, as a consequence, reach your ideal weight.
Relationship with food programme
If you want to focus on changing your mindset around food so that you can lose weight and feel better in yourself, then this is for you
“What is relationship with food and food freedom?”
Our relationship with food describes our thoughts, feelings, and behaviours relating to food. It’s how we see food and how food fits into our lives.
Having a positive relationship with food involves seeing food as nourishment and something to enjoy, and being able to mindfully choose what and how much to eat. Whereas, a negative relationship with food can involve feelings of shame, anxiety and guilt around food.
“Can I lose weight on the 'Relationship with food' programme?”
✅ Yes, you can.
Our weight and relationship with food are very interlinked. This is because the reasons behind our behaviours (such as our emotions and thoughts) can influence our eating habits, which can ultimately influence our weight.
For example, having an unhealthy relationship with food may mean feeling like we have a lack of control when it comes to food, which can lead to overeating. On the other hand, a healthy relationship with food involves eating a balanced diet, enjoying food, and being mindful of the choices that we make.
The ‘Relationship with food’ programme focuses on improving your relationship with food so that you see food as nourishment and enjoy it, rather than obsessing or stressing over it. By doing this, you’ll learn to listen to your body and give it what it needs in the right amounts, leading to sustainable weight loss.
What’s ‘food freedom’?
Food freedom describes the feeling that food doesn’t control you (common in an negative relationship with food) and that you can see food for nourishment for your mind and body. You won’t think about food all the time and you can enjoy eating the food you love.
“Should I join the 'Relationship with food' programme?”
✅ You should definitely join the ‘Relationship with food’ programme if:
You know that you need to improve your relationship with food to achieve your goals
You want to stop thinking about food all the time and be able to enjoy eating
You want to learn how to fuel yourself well so you can be healthy and energised
You want to lose weight as a result of improving your relationship with food
You want to be a role model for your children and help them build healthy habits
⛔️ On the other hand, the ‘Relationship with food’ programme is not ideal for you if:
Your priority is fast weight loss
Your focus is to manage or prevent a health condition by improving your lifestyle choices

This is changing my life, I literally have opened a cupboard then stopped shut it and sat back down. It may sound stupid but that is massive to me.

Amazing platform. Helped me to understand my relationship with food and portion control rather than calorie counting.
Claire, who came from calorie counting to Second Nature
It’s completely changed my relationship with food. I wish I had found it years ago. I’m no longer hungry or snack! I’m three weeks in and I have lost just over a stone! I’m forever changed and cannot recommend enough.
