In today’s episode, I am talking to Nyla Wiebe, Founder of Nutrition with Nyla. She is a health coach who helps women heal their relationship with food, health, and themselves. Nyla joins me to discuss finding balance in how we eat, what we eat, and fitness, and finding joy in who you are.
In her work, Nyla uses an intuitive eating perspective, enneagram perspective, and a Christian perspective to help her clients. Intuitive eating isn’t a diet, Nyla explains, it’s about understanding how what you eat makes you feel and relates to your body. It’s about finding an approach for each individual that works for them and brings them joy. There’s no one plan that fits everyone.
When she was in high school and university, Nyla struggled with anorexia and binge eating. This eventually led to orthorexia, a disorder that leaves you with an obsession with fitness and eating healthily to the point that it interrupts your daily life.
Knowing someone’s personality helps Nyla to build a program for them. That’s why she uses the enneagram test. There are strengths to every personality type – it’s about finding those strengths and playing to them. You have permission to be you, as you were made.
We often think that we’ll have a better body image if we change how our bodies look. What really makes the difference is changing how you think about your body. You aren’t numbers on a scale. If you don’t like your thighs, give them a positive nickname. Reframe your beliefs about your own body. Nyla works to find the root of the issue and create a more neutral body image for people.
Different is not wrong. Learn to speak that truth over yourself and give yourself grace.
