127: Tips for Shifting from Rigid Meal Plans to Flexibility with Food

Devrie Pettit, MS, RD is a registered dietitian who has gone through an interesting professional journey from selling meal plans online to supporting a message focused on Intuitive Eating, HAES, and restriction recovery. She and her best friend started an online business a few years ago selling meal plans where they did their best to promote flexibility within their programs. Soon they realized that people who were participating in their programs were rigidly obsessed with the meal plan and not taking the ideas as a framework and guidelines rather than rules and Devrie started to feel like she wanted to make a change with her offerings and focus.

She eventually re-branded her business to be more in alignment with her personal philosophy around food and discovered the weight-neutral approach. She still has a soft spot for those who are wrestling with these concepts, and she came on the podcast to talk about her best tips for embracing flexibility with food.

In this podcast, we discuss food plans: the good, the bad and the ugly. We talk about how to detect diets in all their sneaky forms and we talk about strategies for incorporating flexibility into your life with food. We discuss why food plans in all the forms can be so seductive and alluring and provide some ideas for moving forward without rigidity.
