How to Obsess Less and Live More with Lisa Hayim

Are you exhausted from thinking about food, worrying about food, and trying to keep up with the latest trends about food? Or maybe you’re tired of labeling yourself as “good” or “bad” depending on what you ate or didn’t eat. What if you could ditch the diets and food rules and step into your true power? The good news is that eating and feeling good doesn’t have to be so stressful and interfere with living your best life!

Welcome back to Once Upon a Food Story episode #30 with Lisa Hayim. Lisa is a Registered Dietitian, a health educator, and founder of The Well Necessities. Lisa works with people all over the world to strengthen their introspective abilities, help them become more mindful eaters, and ultimately provide them with the freedom that comes with realizing your self-worth is not tied or related to your body image, dietary labels, or how much you exercise.

After years of intense food fears and body struggles, Lisa learned how to separate herself from her food choices by trading the obsessive calorie counting and diet mentality for a more intuitive (and modern) way of eating and living. Now, Lisa is on a mission to spread the message that we all have the ability to take back our personal power, turn down the noise, and trust the brilliant wisdom of our own bodies.

Tune in and let Lisa inspire you to release your disempowering stories and find peace on your plate… and in your life.

“Wellness isn’t about the perfectly styles avocado toast or pretty matcha lattes. It’s about doing the inner work to live well.” ~Lisa Hayim
