Foodist with Darya Rose, Ph.D
About This Show
In the Foodist podcast Darya Rose, Ph.D. introduces you to real people on the journey of becoming foodists, learning how to get healthy and lose weight without dieting.
A foodist is someone who uses Real Food to optimize their life for health and happiness. There is no right or wrong way to become a foodist, and everyone must find their own path or “healthstyle” that works for them. This means finding foods, habits and activities you love and that work for you.
On the show you’ll meet people at all stages of the journey. Whether they are just starting out and wondering if this is even a good idea, need help breaking through a weight loss plateau, or successfully down 30 pounds and in the best shape of their lives, Darya will show you how they got there and what they need to do to get to the next level.

What to Do When You Stop Dieting and It Backfires

"I've felt the option is either cake or not cake. And so then how do you start a habit to NOT do something?" - Mindy
Mindy was excited when she found Summer Tomato. The thought of being able to lose weight without counting calories or going on another strict diet was a revelation.
Right away she bought a pedometer to make sure she was getting enough steps everyday, stopped counting calories and started focusing on cooking Real Food for herself and her family. But as time passed Mindy wasn’t losing weight with her new healthstyle, she was gaining.
Mindy was hoping that giving up dieting would automatically end her cravings for sweets at the end of the day, but it didn't and without trying to restrict herself she started eating more than ever. Now she wonders if it's even possible for her to stop. In fact, when she reached out to us she asked if it would be possible for her to keep her bingeing habit and do something else to lose the extra pounds.
In this episode Mindy and I examine her current habits and triggers to help her recognize that there is actually a third path available. One that doesn't require her to give up sweets, but does help her find a healthier alternative to regular bingeing.
It's difficult to believe that you can lose weight without restricting your eating if the only thing you've ever done instead is overeat. Finding the solution takes some experimentation, as well as recognizing and reframing your limiting beliefs so you can imagine yourself taking a different path.
