Ditching the meal plan or the diet rule book can be really scary. You are used to having everything set out in neat little rows highlighting what is 'good' or 'bad', and how much you 'should' be eating.
So often I see women in my practice who feel like they are the only ones to have gone through the diet cycle. You know the one: diet, lose weight, gain weight, hate your body and feel crazy around food, go on another diet ... and the rollercoaster continues. You feel really isolated, and like it's a personal failure that you couldn't stick to the 'rules'.
