Do any of the following apply to you?

  • I usually describe a day of eating as either good or bad
  • If I eat dessert, I make plans to exercise more
  • Once I eat a forbidden food, I think, I blew it, and then I eat whatever I want, usually in large quantities
  • I feel guilty if I don’t do my usual levels of exercise
  • If I am planning to go out for dinner/ drinks, I cut back how much I eat during the day, regardless of my hunger and fullness levels
  • I will not let myself eat a particular snack/ meal if it exceeds a certain number of calories
  • I weigh myself frequently

Monika specialises in helping individuals recover from disordered eating, compulsive dieting, as well as improving their relationship with food and their bodies. She blends her expertise in nutrition and psychology in supporting people abandon ‘diet culture’ and reclaiming their life back. Monika believes in a body positive and weight inclusive approach that focuses on behaviours, not weight or numbers, as a key to lasting health, both physical and mental.
