For women who are tired of feeling guilty about what they eat
Stop obsessing over food, feel worthy at any size, and live a life of total freedom
ENROLLMENT CLOSES IN:
Ever go to a backyard birthday party and spend the whole time thinking about the bowl of chips on the table?
And while everyone else is playing in the Slip n' Slide or singing happy birthday by the pool, you're stuck in your head with thoughts like:
❱❱ “I won’t have any cake because it’s too many calories…”
❱❱ “Those tacos look amazing, but I can’t eat corn on my new diet...”
❱❱ “If I have a slice of pizza I can’t eat for the rest of the day…”
❱❱ “I’ve gotta get out of the kitchen, there are too many snacks in here…”
❱❱ “I loatheee pictures of myself, so I’m avoiding photos at all costs…”
And the tricky thing about those thoughts?
They take on *a lot* of power.
Before you know it, you're..
✖ Avoiding gatherings where you know there’ll be a big chocolate cake or leftover lasagna or a buffet-style dinner.
✖ Afraid to go to the grocery store and face all that food.
✖ Checking every mirror in your home and every window you walk by to see how you look, and you always come up with the same conclusion: too big, too bloated, too bulky.
If we’re honest, you’ve been dealing with obsessive thoughts around food waaay too long.
And everything you’ve tried to control your relationship with food and feel better in your body only makes things worse
The diets — all of them
Keto, Primal, South Beach, Atkins, Paleo... you name it. And every diet promises the same thing— to change your body and make it thinner, more “toned,” healthier. Cue the never-ending cycle of following food rules to control your physical appearance.
But those results don’t last because restricting food and following fad diets isn’t sustainable.
You know this. You’ve tried.
Clean eating or “healthy” eating
Surely some rules are good… right?
Nope! At the end of the day, clean eating is just a diet masquerading as a healthy lifestyle choice.
Trying to tighten your grip on control only leads to a *very* troubled relationship with food and can cause mental, physical, and emotional suffering.
Maybe you’ve even thought about giving intuitive eating a try, but you’re too afraid that removing all the rules around food will lead to weight gain—and as far as you’re concerned, that’s a big no-no.
...Any of that sounding familiar?
Mmm. I thought so.
Imagine, for a moment, how *flipping* amazing it would be to...
✔ Have an easy, peaceful relationship with food—yup, even desserts
✔ Opt for ice cream with extra toppings instead of the low-calorie frozen yogurt option without feeling any guilt at all
✔ Feel completely worthy no matter what weight, shape, or size you are
✔ Know that your body is happy and healthy even if you have Italian for dinner
✔ Have total confidence putting on a pair of shorts or a bathing suit and going for an after-lunch swim—*gasp*
The truth is… ALL of that is possible.
You can ditch dieting for good and make peace with food.
You can be happy and healthy without monitoring every morsel of food that you consume.
You can stop obsessing over food “rules,” feel worthy at any size, and be free to enjoy your life without having food-related bombard you and ruin your day.
Thinking to yourself… “Yes! That’s what I want. But… how do I do it?!”
...It’s time we’ve met.
Katy here —
True-crime junkie, coffee lover (a good ol’ fashioned vanilla latte is my jam!), momma to two boys, and Certified Eating Disorder Registered Dietitian (CEDRD) on a mission to help women make peace with food with intuitive eating.
I’m not your average dietitian. I identify as a food therapist who believes in ditching diet culture, trusting our bodies, and practicing body kindness.
Because through all my studying, exams, experimenting, and disordered eating (yup, it happens to dietitians too!), the one thing that gave me freedom from obsessing over food was embracing a non-diet way of life.
Let me explain.
You see, the problem is that we’ve been punked.
(And unfortunately, this time there’s no A-list celebrity popping out from behind a tree to say Gotcha!)
Society has brainwashed us — especially women — to believe that we need to be a certain way in order to be desirable, to be successful, to be worthy.
Diet culture teaches us that in order to matter we need to be a particular shape, or a certain size, or a given weight.
And it teaches us that food is the enemy.
So instead of seeing food as the delicious, life-giving fuel for our bodies that it is, we use it as a tool to prove our worthiness.
We use it to control the shape, size, and weight.
Enter: a problematic, and deeply harmful relationship with food that leaves us unhappy, unfulfilled, and undernourished.
But it doesn't have to be that way.
Non-diet philosophy teaches us to undo those harmful lessons we’ve been taught, to unwind the harmful narratives we’ve adopted, so we can finally… live.
Because, here’s the truth:
Food is not the enemy—nope, not even chocolate-dipped Oreos!
You can be healthy and eat sweets.
You can live a long, bountiful life and go out for pizza night with your family. You can put butter on your popcorn and still be worthy of love and affection.
So, how do you stop being food-obsessed, stick it to the man, live unapologetically, and feel good doing it?
Oooo, I’m so glad you asked.
The 6-week online course that teaches you how to eat intuitively and be kind to your body so you can stop obsessing over food, feel worthy at any size, and live a life of total freedom.
Inside Non-Diet Academy, you’ll not only learn how to listen to your body and eat intuitively, but you’ll untangle some of the deep-rooted body image hang-ups that are keeping you stuck.
Over 6 weeks, you’ll get access to all the knowledge, tools, and expert tips you need to heal your relationship with food, love your body, and feel worthy no matter what you eat.
Let's break it down:
Breaking Up With Diet Culture
Non-Diet Academy kicks off with a deep dive into diet culture and how it keeps us in constant battle with food.
In Module 1, you’ll learn how diet culture has conditioned us to be unhappy with ourselves so you can wave buh-bye and say see yah, Diet Culture, it’s not me, it’s YOU.
❱❱ How to set yourself up for success and get the most out of this course
❱❱ Lies diet culture tells you about food (and the actual truth)
❱❱ What dieting does to your metabolism and how to reverse its effects
Food and Intuitive Eating
After spending years trying to please the diet-gods, we’ve got to do some foundational work to undo the deeply ingrained habits and thought patterns that might prevent your success with intuitive eating.
In Module 2, you’ll learn how to get your metabolism back on track so your body works (and feels) its best. Then, you’ll rewire your brain to think differently about food so you can actually enjoy eating, instead of feeling guilty about it.
No more “good food” or “bad food” thinking.
And if you’re concerned about nutrition and health, don’t worry! You’ll learn exactly what nutrients your body needs to thrive.
You’ll learn how to:
❱❱ Fire up your metabolism after years of effects from yo-yo dieting
❱❱ Listen for your body’s natural hunger and fullness cues — yes! You were born with those
❱❱ Nourish your body with macronutrients without restricting sorting “good food” from “bad food”
❱❱ Decode your food cravings so you can gain a deeper understanding of your emotional reactions to food
Body Image Struggles and Weight Fears
Most people are afraid intuitive eating will lead to weight gain, which means it’s impossible to learn how to eat intuitively without talking about body image.
In Module 3, we’ll explore the reasons why we’re so afraid of weight gain and learn how to be kind to our bodies.
P.S. I know this is scary! But it is so, so worth it. Because when you learn how to be kind to yourself and love your body, the real healing begins.
You’ll learn how to:
❱❱ Reframe your internalized narratives around weight loss and weight gain
❱❱ Finally ditch your secret desire to lose weight
❱❱ Identify the underlying fears and shame behind your body insecurity
Self-Care Ain't Selfish
...And it ain’t all bubble baths and lavender hand lotions either.
Self-care is one of the pillars of food + body image healing. When we have unmet needs in our life, it often shows up in our relationship with food and body.
In Module 4, you’ll learn how to practice deep, meaningful self-care so you can nourish your body beyond food.
You’ll learn how to:
❱❱ Practice deep, meaningful self-care so you can support whole-body health and wellness
❱❱ Develop macro and micro self-care routines (and when to use each)
❱❱ Stick to your self-care routines even if you have a bad food or body image day (which is bound to happen!
Movement (aka "exercise")
If you’re anything like me, the word exercise immediately conjures images of the dusty dumbbells in the garage. The ones you *never* use.
But exercise doesn’t have to be a chore or a punishment — I promise.
In Module 5, you’ll explore movement as a key piece of building a trusting, loving relationship with your body.
You’ll learn how to:
❱❱ Use movement as a joyful activity and not a chore or punishment
❱❱ Identify toxic fitness culture and how it’s shaped your idea of exercise
❱❱ Properly fuel and hydrate your body for movement
❱❱ Incorporate small, effective movements into your day even if you’re sooo busy

And in case you’re wondering how Non-Diet Academy stacks up to other intuitive eating programs out there...
(A skeptic! I like you. I like you a lot.)
❌ Focus Only on Intuitive Eating so you’re left knowing WHAT intuitive eating is but not how to set yourself up for sustainable success
❌ Overwhelming Info like long-winded lessons and e-book length PDFs
❌ No Student Community or private space to foster connection and support among students
❌ Led by a Health Coach—which can be great! But sometimes coaches are missing valuable insights that only come along with formal training and years in the field
❌ Little or No Support—I’m talking a set of modules or a static set of lessons and that’s it—yikes!
✓ Focuses on Intuitive Eating, Body Image, Self-Care, and Movement so you can learn how to trust, respect, and love your body and see long-lasting results
✓ Actionable Lessons & Plug-and-Play Tools so you can learn what you need and implement it right away
✓ Private Facebook Community filled with other women on the same journey as you so you never feel alone as you ditch dieting and free yourself from food rules
✓ Taught by a Certified Eating Disorder Dietitian—aka me! I’ve studied nutrition, body image psychology, and disordered eating and I’ve helped dozens of women just like you ditch dieting for good and make peace with food
✓ 6 Weekly Group Coaching Calls where you can ask me anything, troubleshoot with the group, celebrate your wins, or get help overcoming any obstacles!
I only want you to join this program if it’ll help you heal your relationship with food & build a new, deeply loving relationship with your body

GOT QUESTIONS? OF COURSE YOU DO!
These are the most common questions other women ask before joining Non-Diet Academy and healing their relationship with food
I’m new to intuitive eating. Will this be too advanced for me?
Should I wait to take the course until I’m less busy?
Do I have to show up online at a scheduled time to take this course?
Will I have to buy any additional books or other materials to take this course?
Is there a refund policy?
How long will I have access to the course and community?
Is this course good for people who are recovering from an eating disorder?
OH, ONE LAST THING!
If you’re meeting me way down here at the bottom of the page, I’m going to go out on a limb and say...
Something is resonating with you. Maybe deep down a piece of you really does think it’s possible to stop obsessing over food and find that wondrous, effortless middle-ground where you can actually enjoy what you’re eating.
you’re not quite sure if Non-Diet Academy is for you.
Which is very fair.
I’ve had my fair share of buyer’s remorse too. (I’m looking at you 70% less-fat whole grain crackers.)
So before you go, I want to tell you ONE teeny (but mighty!) thing I wish someone told me when I was just starting my journey to intuitive eating and body kindness:
You CAN stop battling food and enjoy your body—and your life—exactly how it is.
You CAN stop body checking in the mirror and finding things you don’t like about yourself.
You CAN take pictures, make memories, and love the people around you without feeling like you’re too big or too bloated or too bulky.
Your life is meant to be lived.
The cake. The cookies. The birthdays. The holidays. The decadent celebrations. The laugh-out-loud moments.
All of it.
It’s glorious, and it’s yours.
You’re worthy of happiness no matter your size, or your shape, or your weight.
If you choose not to join us in Non-Diet Academy this time around, that’s okay! I’m cheering you on wherever you’re off to next.
But if you're ready to stop obsessing over every little thing you eat and feeling guilty about how you look and feel...
I’d be honored to guide you on your journey to intuitive eating and a full and vibrant life—cake or no cake.
You with me?
I can’t wait to see you on the inside!
