Welcome to your life after diets
Karla Cameron provides hope and a deeper level of understanding for people with eating issues - whether you identify as struggling with emotional eating, binge eating, bulimia, anorexia or body image issues, I can help you.
Life After Diets was born when I decided to use my experience, instead of having it use me. I am the founder of Life After Diets, a program to feed your self-esteem and help you transform your relationship with food. I provide counselling for all eating issues.
It's not your fault. Dieting is the single largest cause of developing an eating problem.
Dieting causes us to become pre-occupied with food and our weight. Dieting triggers a loss of control over eating as a normal and natural, biological survival response. Overeating causes weight gain and our weight gain then causes us to become desperate to find a quick fix or easy answers to losing it.
When we are no longer dieting and restricting, we will also no longer be rebounding by losing control and overeating, so the struggle will cease to exist.
Life After Diets provides...
An alternative and holistic philosophy about your relationship with food. You can come for an individual session or you can keep coming back until you feel completely satisfied that you are done. Small group workshops are regularly presented throughout the year in Brisbane. Interstate and rural clients can utilize telephone counselling sessions with Karla.
Truly resolving your eating issue is about taking on more personal responsibility and reclaiming your own personal power. This is an internal experience that works its way outwards.
In Australia we spend approximately one billion dollars annually in the weight loss industry. In the USA, spending is approximately sixty billion annually. And yet Australia and the USA frequently top both obesity and eating disorders lists of statistics per capita. Something doesn't add up.
A non-diet approach first surfaced in the USA in 1970 (known then as an anti-diet approach) by Carol Munter and Jane Hirschmann, who are world pioneers with their "Overcoming Overeating" workshops and book of the same name. Susie Orbach from the UK documents the struggle articulately with her "Fat Is a Feminist Issue" book series from 1978. Dr Rick Kausman is Australia's non-diet pioneer from 1989, beginning with his "If Not Dieting, Then What?" approach.
The current global movement gathering an enormous amount of strength, which incorporates a non-diet approach, is "Health at Every Size" (HAES). You are not alone, there is much support out there.
