Hey I’m Lauren and welcome to the Lauren Kate Nutrition blog and website.
I am a fully qualified Nutritional Therapist on a mission to help you to heal your relationship with food and your body, to know that you are enough and that you are worthy no matter what.
I am here to help you live a full life and satisfy your soul with a life free from food and body shame. Because when you honour your natural body size, truly understand your worth is not aligned to your weight and look after yourself in mind, body and soul with health giving behaviours, you are able to have the space to live the full life you were created to live.
The reason I have so much fire for this work is because I have been in a place where, for nearly 10 years, I had various manifestations of disordered eating and diet mentality myself. From severe restriction to orthorexic behaviour and a bucket load of diet culture dominating my mindset, I struggled with loving myself, letting go of control and having peace with food and my body. I have been in a larger body and been fat shamed and I have also been in a very small body. My own experience has taught me that getting a super slim body did not bring me the happiness and peace I was lead to believe it would. Instead, it made me miserable and had me deeply entrenched in an eating disorder.
Now, I am in a place where I have made peace with food and my body and I let my body be whatever size + shape it needs to be whilst I take care of myself in mind, body and soul. I have begun to love myself, imperfections and all. And let me tell you, life is so much more freeing this way.
I know how much time and how many wonderful life experiences can be lost to the disordered food and body beast, and I am driven to help others to be freed from their food and body issues so they can live this life to the full and live a life that is truly aligned to their values and who they really are.
In this space, you will find me talk all things food and body peace, self love and self compassion and taking care of ourselves in this wonderful, yet sometimes messy, life.
My work has developed into three parts:
Peaceful Eating—–Nourished Mind——Satisfied Soul.
Peaceful Eating – My approach aligns with the Intuitive Eating and Health at Every Size principles. I work to help people develop a healthy relationship to food and their bodies, be free from food guilt + overcome food fears, learn to honour their hunger and bodies, accept their bodies, eat satisfying foods, learn that all foods can fit into a healthy diet and that food has no moral weighting to your worth as a person. You are not “good” for eating kale and “bad” for eating cookies.
Nourished Mind – A big part of healing our relationship to food and our bodies means looking after our mental health. This means changing the narrative in our minds from one of self criticism and destruction, to one of self love, compassion, encouragement and kindness. We can work to nourish our minds with healthful practices + therapies + thoughts that are rooted in self love, compassion and kindness.
Satisfied Soul – Of equal importance is nourishing our souls. Satisfying your soul can simply mean doing things that light you up and make you feel alive. It is about following your truth and living a life aligned to your true values. It is satisfying what you are truly hungry for and satisfying your soul.
I hope my work, experience, words and service can help you in some way on your journey to food and body peace, loving yourself, taking care of yourself and living the full and vibrant life you were created to live. I am always learning about this space (food and body acceptance, HAES, body positivity and its roots etc.) all of the time, but I hope that what I do share from what I do know and have learned already can be helpful and healing for your own journey.
