Ep 91: In Charge vs In Control - Q+A Call with Eat Confident Collective Members

We have the privilege of working with an amazing group of women in our group coaching program, Eat Confident Collective. We have 2 coaching calls each week where they can show up and get support with whatever they need. 

So today, we wanted to do something a little different - especially for those of you who haven’t heard us teach before because you’re not in the Collective, or for those of you who want to get a taste for a group coaching call with us.

We want to share a piece of a past coaching call here on the podcast. 

We got permission from the members we mention to share this, and we’re so excited for you to get to hear what it’s like.

These were all random, unplanned questions, and as will be obvious to you as you listen, we didn’t come prepared with polished answers. It was fun and off the cuff and spontaneous...but hopefully as helpful for you as it was for the women in the Collective actually asking the questions.

We want to preface this coaching call snippet with a few thoughts.

Here’s the thing: in this coaching call, we talk about the word discipline.

We use some words in here that you might not totally attach to an Intuitive Eataing approach, but we’re all for finding that gray area and not completely eliminating aspects of structure.

The whole point is that structure is important. Without structure - without you kind of stepping up and taking care of yourself, in whatever way that looks like - you’re not going to succeed at healing your relationship with food and your body.

In this episode we talk about urge surfing (or surfing the urge), which is a therapeutic tool we love and had taught about previously in the Collective.

We also talk about discipline, and the idea of being in control vs. being in charge.

We have a member come on to share her concerns about sugar and we walk her through some mindset shifts around sugar that we hope will help you as well.

So listen in for a snippet from one of our group coaching calls inside Eat Confident Collective!

We hope this small snippet of a group coaching call felt helpful for you with your own struggles with food while also giving you a bit more of an idea of what it’s like to work with us inside Eat Confident Collective.

You may not have been able to participate in this particular Q+A but we’d love to have you in a future call with us in the Collective.

Doors will be opening tomorrow at the end of our free online workshop, Cultivate Confidence: How to Bridge the Gap Between Food Rules + Food Freedom and Find Peace with Your Body

In this live online workshop, you’ll learn how to create an environment that builds food + body confidence.

We want to help you find wellness without a diet. If that sounds good to you and you want to take the next step in learning how to become a confident eater, join us.

You can check out all the times and grab your seat at eatconfident.co/freeworkshop. We hope to see you there!

We’ll be back here next week with an interview with a member of Eat Confident Collective, and you’ll love hearing about her journey with food. Thanks so much for listening, and we’ll talk to you next week!
