Destructive dieting can cause you to feel weak, ashamed, out of control, embarrassed, and angry at yourself. It can harm you physically. I help individuals who have destructive patterns of dieting to stop the painful dieting cycle, to be respectful of themselves and their bodies, and to develop healthy lifestyles including normal eating and regular exercise. I also help individuals with medical problems such as diabetes or heart conditions make the dietary changes necessary for improved health.
