“A culture fixated on female thinness is not an obsession about female beauty, but an obsession about female obedience. Dieting is the most potent political sedative in women’s history; a quietly mad population is a tractable one.”
– Naomi Wolfe
Fact or fiction— women spend 31 years’ of their lives on a diet and obsessed with fitting in to the mold of what the world tells us “true beauty” looks like. Believe it or not, this is a FACT!
As many of you know, I lost over 100 lbs about 7 years’ ago. It was a big accomplishment for me— but in truth, I still struggled with did I feel “enough” in my new body. I was still influenced by so many factors and being at what I thought was my “perfect weight” did not instantly give me the confidence and self-acceptance that I was seeking.
In all honesty, I felt like I still used food and exercise in unhealthy ways at times and I hadn’t quite figured out how to be my healthiest self without using the scale to dictate whether I felt good today or not.
Enter BARE. I was instantly attracted to this program because the whole program focuses on self-love and how to embrace who we are as women, right here and right now instead of waiting for what many of us crave “the perfect body”.
About the BARE method
The BARE method is not a cleanse, a detox, or a diet.
It‘s a total lifestyle change built on a foundation of self-love and a progression of steps that show you how to move through your day —
And feel your feelings —
without “needing” the numbing, protective shield that overeating can provide.
You’ll decode your eating habits and figure out why you feel that urge to snack when
you’re not really hungry.
You’ll infuse your life with new experiences so that food is no longer your primary (or only) source of pleasure, excitement, or entertainment.
You’ll reconnect with your dreams, goals,
and desires and start leading the life you really want, now, instead of postponing your dreams until “someday later” when your body is “perfect.”
This method won’t just give you a smaller waistline—
it’s about creating a bigger, braver life.
I am thrilled to be one of a very small handful of BARE method coaches,
personally trained by the originator of the BARE method herself.
Listen in on what BARE client, Molly Hazzis, experienced . . . “BARE has helped me find appreciation and gratitude for my body that I didn’t see or feel before. I look at my body through a much more positive lens now, and find myself saying loving and empowering things to myself, instead of the old negative self-destructive thoughts that used to be my go to. I’m so grateful for finding this new way of seeing my body, and for being able to appreciate it for all the wonderful and empowering things it does for me. It has been a game changer for me!!”
