Done with Dieting: 30 Days of Soul-Full Eating

When Kate seeks help for her yo-yo dieting and weight gain, she’s looking for more than just another carb counting quick fix. Tired of both herself and an endless parade of nutrition and fitness advice, Kate doubts that any diet can help her overcome her compulsive eating habits to find the perfect weight.

But the seemingly ordinary “life coach” who agrees to take Kate on as a client, has more than Kate’s waistline in mind. This unconventional diet is a complete overhaul of body, mind, and soul, causing Kate to question some of her most cherished beliefs, and let go of past regrets along with mealtime baggage. As Kate’s mentor guides her into unknown territory, they uncover an aspect of eating Kate had long ago forgotten: joy. Throwing all rules and restrictions out the window, Kate is led by one simple principle, “Eat with love what’s grown with love, prepared with love and served with love.”

A warm-hearted and fiercely direct dialogue ensues, as the two women clear Kate’s kitchen, asses her wardrobe and uncover a brilliantly confident woman that Kate never realized was hiding under her own skin.

Join Kate on her journey from “I’m not” to “I am!” by receiving one installment of the story each morning for 30 days, accompanied by daily exercises and meditations to integrate Kate’s discoveries into your own life. Accompanied by Kate, the path to health and radiance has never been more engaging or appealing.

You may sympathize with Kate if you’ve ever…

  • Quit a diet that you swore you’d stick to, feeling defeated and self-loathing.
  • Triumphantly reached your dieting goals, only to yo-yo back to your original weight, while frantically trying to control your fluctuating waistline.
  • Felt frustrated and confused by the hundreds of diet “plans” and “experts” all with their own, often-contradictory methods of achieving the perfect body.
  • Grown sick of listening to other people tell you how you should eat, exercise and look.

What if you could end all of your struggles with food and stop dieting forever?
You can!

Most traditional diets rely on pre-planned meals, regimented lists of “shoulds” and “shoudln’ts”, and carb, fat and calorie counting—methods which only create more guilt and mealtime stress, and often causing dieters to quit altogether or quickly bounce back to their original weight.

Kate’s Awakening, by contrast, tackles mealtime and dressing room woes at their very source—the deep-rooted feelings of guilt and self-loathing that most of us associate with those experiences—and which keep us from trusting ourselves to decide when, what, and how much we should eat.

Over the course of this 30-Day email program, you’ll learn to trust yourself to make healthy, wholesome decisions about food. You’ll learn how to indulge without guilt, to eat when you’re hungry and stop when you’re full, and to eat—and live—in a way that leaves you feeling satisfied, and not aching for more.

Expect your newfound confidence and appreciation to expand into the rest of your daily experience—get ready to love your life!

It seems to me that our three basic needs, for food and security and love,
are so entwined that we cannot think of one without the other.

A Message About Done with Dieting from Maureen:
At first, my motivation to become supremely knowledgeable about nutrition and wellness was entirely self-serving and superficial. As an international model, I wanted to be “picture perfect” and “marketable,” so I could be successful and make a living. But as I watched friends and co-workers turn towards drugs or develop eating disorders, I realized that my interest in full-body wellness and spirituality had helped me not only maintain a desirable physique, but also stay sane in an often crazy and self-destructive industry.

Over the course of a quarter decade, I read literally hundreds of books, attended lectures, workshops and retreats by every known (and unknown) wellness authority of the day. As time passed and I thankfully matured, I realized that there is no “expert” and no one can be anyone else’s “diet authority.”

No matter how learned, how many degrees or titles someone may have after their name, the person who is most expert about you, is you!

In fact, the more I came to know myself, the more evident it became to me how ludicrous it is that any expert should be given the authority to tell me, or any one, what precisely I should eat, at any given time of the day!

I am not here to tell you that this food is good and this food is bad. It’s time to rise above all of that, and allow you to pay attention to your own body and your own needs, to give you the space to decide what is right for you, right now.

Despite a world littered with fast food restaurants and seductive junk food commercials promising ultimate satisfaction there are people who are able to stay thin and healthy and can negotiate their way through the synthetic food jungle every day. And even quite peacefully and consciously indulge from time to time. How?
They are focused on self-love, and have learned what satisfies their own needs, rather than endlessly filling a void and riding the cycle of self-guilt.

Have you ever watched a small child eat? They eat what they want when they want it, and stop as soon as they are full. They never binge or intentionally starve themselves, or feel guilt for not eating the “right” amounts of the “right” foods.

That is, until the child begins school, where there are allotted times for eating, and using the bathroom, and playing, and paying attention. At dinnertime, adults tell her that she has to either finish everything on her plate or stop eating so much of certain foods. As the child grows older, she loses touch with what her body needs, instead relying on experts to tell her what will make her feel and look “perfect.” She might overindulge to ease emotional pain, or restrict herself to feel more in control of her life and image. Soon, mealtime becomes a complicated mess of “shoulds,” “don’ts” and “wants.” Wouldn’t it be nice to return to those childhood eating habits, when you just ate whatever you liked, whenever you felt hungry, with no guilt?

In this 30-day “non-diet” program, you’ll purge yourself of mealtime baggage, and learn to trust yourself to make healthy, wholesome decisions about food. You’ll learn how to indulge without guilt, to eat when you’re hungry and stop when you’re full, and to eat—and live—in a way that leaves you feeling satisfied, and not aching for more.

Every human has two things in common,
1. We all Eat.
2. We all feel a certain, albeit often undeniable pang of emptiness that whispers, “there must be something more than this.”

Sure we can quiet that voice, from time to time, just like our body’s hunger for food, making it subside by burying it under layers of material consumption. But the only time that any of us are ever truly, deeply full, contented and satisfied is when we feel deeply loved.

That void is the voice of your Soul calling you to live your own life fully and freely, led by a deeply fulfilling interior motivation that is aligned with self-love and awareness. A life guided by, infused with, and impassioned by love.

Wouldn’t you much rather learn to love yourself than temporarily trim your waistline by mastering another diet, only to find yourself yo-yo right back to where you were before you started it?

Answers One Plate at a Time

Just as Al Gore Calls for Sustainable Living with his Inconvenient Truth The Book Soul-Full Eating Provides Answers One Plate at a Time

If you’ve seen Al Gore’s movie An Inconvenient Truth, read his book, or even just resonate with his message, you’re probably wondering how you can do your part to save the planet and protect the future for generations to come. Maureen Whitehouse’s new book “Soul-Full Eating” (www.soulfulleating.com) delivers some immediate solutions to us, as she explains how the choices you make at meal-time can be more conscious and environmentally sound.

(PRWeb)PRWEb March 20, 2007 — It’s easy to feel overwhelmed at the thought of responding to Al Gore’s call for action in his eloquent book and movie, “An Inconvenient Truth.” OK, we need to live in a more sustainable way in order to curb global warming. But what the heck does “sustainability” mean anyway?

“What people like Al Gore are talking about is the ability of human beings to stay alive on planet earth, today and in the future,” notes “Soul-Full Eating” author Maureen Whitehouse. “Human demands take their toll on the planet and affect what it can give back. Our excessive demands also change the earth, with effects like global warming. But we can begin to make better daily choices, ones that will have less damaging or even positive effects.”

With her new book “Soul-Full Eating,” Maureen Whitehouse explains how our consumption of food can become more conscious — allowing us to help heal the planet through the way we eat. “Better choices resonate within each of us on what I call ‘a Soul level,’ and they help us feel more connected. Feeling more connected to others, we make better choices more often. It’s a positive cycle that builds.”

Whitehouse notes that the steps that make a difference can start out small. For instance, you could begin to buy foods as close to their natural form as possible, foods which require less labor and energy to produce and use less packaging. You might choose an apple over a candy bar. You might choose to drink water over a can of soda. You could choose to avoid genetically engineered foods. Etc.

A virtual encyclopedia on how to eat well, “Soul-Full Eating” (www.soulfulleating.com) covers everything from how to learn to eat Soul-fully, to how and why to eat organic locally-grown foods whenever possible, to why raw, enzyme-rich foods are essential to include in your diet, to plenty of nutrition basics, plus a primer on the best food plans available today. The author originally researched nutrition because of a desire to stay thin and healthy as a high fashion model, and she has never stopped. Her depth of knowledge and level of consciousness make the read insightful, fun, delicious, and helpful to the planet.

“I’d like to offer people hope,” said Whitehouse. ” To deliver the news that there are simple things you can do to affect global change for the better. Yes, responding to Al Gore’s call to action can start as simply as choosing different foods to put on your plate. And you can learn to make better choices more easily when you know how to eat in a way that resonates with your Soul.
