Brooke Simonson is a Certified Nutrition Coach specializing in evidence-based, sustainable weight loss.

Unlike restrictive, one-size-fits-all diets and programs that only provide short-term results, Brooke helps her clients adopt science-backed nutrition & lifestyle habits that work for their unique likes, dislikes, and time constraints so they can lose 5-50 pounds permanently, have high energy throughout the day, feel completely in control of cravings, and stay consistent long-term!

In today’s episode, Brooke shares more about how her own journey sparked a fire in her to share with others how she transformed her eating habits and relationship with food.

She details the role mindset plays in sustainable behavior change (and weight loss) and unpacks what it takes (and what to focus on) to begin changing your relationship with food for the better so you can ditch food rules and eliminate all-or-nothing thinking!

Episode Highlights and Quotes:

  • “But the mindset stuff is some of the toughest, I would say and the most challenging to work with when you're on the sustainable weight loss journey. And you don't undo it overnight. It's not this two-day Amazon Prime shipping, but we live in this immediate world.”

  • “And so if you continue to have feelings of guilt or shame after eating things, just, first of all, understanding any feeling is a normal feeling. There's nothing wrong with you for feeling that. And this is a work in progress, it's going to take a long time, it's going to take practice just like learning a new language, you're learning a new language around food.”

  • You don’t learn a new language overnight - stop trying to treat your relationship with food that way.

Questions I asked Brooke include:

  • What limiting beliefs hold women back from taking the right action specifically as they age and begin to approach menopause?
  • “Sustainable weight loss requires releasing the mental weight of past dieting attempts.” - tell me more about this!
  • For the women listening who have tried multiple diets over the years only to see that weight come back, what would be the three-step action plan you recommend?

  • How can listeners begin to release guilt and shame around eating their favorite foods?

  • Why is long-term consistency so hard?
