Trying to “eat healthy” in this day and age is a loaded proposition. It feels like it should be easy, or at least fairly intuitive, but it’s often anything but!
At every turn there is conflicting information, and lots of rules and restrictions. One day a food is "worse for you than cancer," the next day it's the latest superfood.
It’s like you just can’t win! No matter what, someone out there is telling you “you’re doing it wrong!” And so you end up doing diet after diet, counting calories or points, and searching for the one thing that will help you figure out how to eat “right.”
Often, it leaves you feeling guilty about food.
And eating emotionally.
And feeling like you failed after each diet.
It leaves you frustrated, overwhelmed, confused, and wondering if it’s even possible
to eat without over-analyzing everything.
It makes you worry about the example you’re setting for your kids.
I’ve been there too, my friend… stuck in a cycle of trying and ‘failing’ at various diets.
I started off counting calories. After realizing how torturous that was, I eventually moved away from it… and then promptly fell down the rabbit hole of paleo-style eating, and all the rules about no gluten, or dairy, or peanuts, or anything un-caveman-like.
I had started out on a quest to lose weight, and then it morphed into trying to find the "perfect diet" for my health. Regardless of the intent, the result was the same... I was stuck dieting, and not really loving it!
After climbing my way out of that phase of my journey, and coaching hundreds of clients away from this dieting cycle too, I’ve come to realize something really important…
Here’s the underlying problem: The entire Diet Industry is built around making people (especially women) feel bad about themselves and their health so they'll keep spending billions of dollars on diet shakes and expensive meal plans in the endless pursuit of thinness.
Dieting has become so deeply rooted into our culture. In every headline, advertisement, and magazine article they constantly instill some false core beliefs in us:
All of these things come together and create a diet mindset… one in which there is a constant inner turmoil around food and how our bodies look.
To enjoy your food and still eat in a health-promoting way.
To be at peace around food, in any situation.
To bake cookies with your kids and fully enjoy the experience (and the cookies)!
To stop being at war with your body.
To set a healthy, happy, and stress-free example for your kids in terms of eating.
And above all:
It is possible. You can absolutely do that.
But the answer doesn’t lie in yet another diet program.
The answer is in addressing that diet mindset that has ruined our relationship with food and is the root cause all the angst, stress, frustration, confusion, and unhappiness that has become tied to eating.
It’s time to bid those faulty brain waves adieu. And that’s why I created something to help you do that...
Improve your body image (because being unhappy with your body
is the main reason you diet in the first place).
Learn why thinking of foods as good or bad is harmful,
and preventing you from getting out of the diet cycle.
Find ways to stop self-sabotaging behaviors like counting calories,
always cleaning your plate, or enduring endless hunger.
Discover a more intuitive approach to eating (and even eating things like sweets),
so you can enjoy all the foods you love and still keep your health in mind.
Stop emotional eating, and find ways to tackle stress, anger,
sadness, and more, without food.
Become a healthy example for your kids, and know how to help
set them up for a healthy relationship with food from the beginning.
There is also a lesson in each section about encouraging this non-diet mindset in your kids,
and it's one of the things I'm most excited about. By helping our kids build a healthy relationship with food from the very beginning, they can avoid the diet struggle that we went through!
Here's a breakdown of the lessons:

You always provide the best reassurance and so much more. Your coaching and perspectives are worth their weight in gold!! You are such a breath of fresh air to an industry that is sucking the life out of people, but I know I don’t have to you tell you that. Thanks so much!
Absolutely! I stand behind this course whole-heartedly.
So there is a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee, and 14-day Refund Policy.
If in the first two weeks of going through the lessons, the workbook, and the Facebook group, you’re not completely happy with the course, just let me know! I'll do everything I can to make things right, and if I can't help, I will refund your purchase 100%!
This course is not a weight loss course, it’s a mindset course. It is entirely possible that you could lose weight after working on this mindset makeover, but it’s not something I promise will happen. It’s not the point of the course! The point is to help you find peace with eating in a healthy and happy way, in whatever body you’re in.
By focusing on eating for health and happiness, I find it doesn’t lead to weight gain. When a person stops dieting and just says “screw it, I’ll eat whatever I dang well please”, they often don’t replace the dieting with healthy behaviors. In this course, I show you how to approach eating in a way that promotes your health, without strict rules you want to rebel from.
Once you enroll, you’ll receive an email with the link to the course site. I will then also send you an invite to the Facebook group.
The DIY version is open at any time.
The guided version is currently unavailable, but you can get on the wait-list and download a free lesson HERE if you want to wait for it to be offered live again. I'm not yet sure when that will be.
In either case, you will keep lifetime access to the course! You’ll also get any future updates that are made.
Of course! Only people who have purchased the course will be able to see it or see any posts inside it. This is why I’ll be sending an email invite, because you won’t be able to find it otherwise!
It’s also not for you if you already have a positive relationship with food (YAY for you, by the way!)
If you're new to the Raising Nutrition website, you may be wondering who on Earth I am, or why I'm qualified to teach what I'm teaching. Those are fabulous questions. I'd be wary of some random person on the internet making these kinds of promises to me too!
My name is Kara Beutel. I have a M.S. in Nutrition and have been a Nutrition Coach since 2014. The clients I've worked with have all tried a slew of various diets in their weight loss endeavors. As I've worked with them, I realized just how HUGE of a role this diet mindset plays in their lives. All of the struggle, and pain, and mental gymnastics they've put themselves through before finding this easier approach is something I wish I could erase for them.
That's where this course came from... it's all the things I wish my clients had known when they were going through the turmoil of dieting. It's the underlying foundation of peace that I'd love to be able to magically instill in them (and you!) with a magic wand!
I LOVED all the information that is helpful for kids and the section on body image. I have always struggled with body image and especially now with my son I want to be more confident in myself and impart good habits and positive self image to my son. Things I never would have thought to do or say... or even not to say you had covered here.
I also loved the analogies, personal stories, and fun things you added like the playlist to make it fun and relatable.
I am as guilty as any woman alive of giving all sorts of unhealthy meanings to food, and this course was a powerful reset, like a clean scrub, to return food to it's place as something joyous, fun, life-giving, but emotionally and ethically neutral.
You won't find any fear-mongering here! It's all scientifically sound. This course isn't about staying the same, or settling; it will help you accept and treat yourself well so that you grow and flourish in the ways you want to.
The reality of the course is the best. It is real, no sugar coating. The course makes you realize we are all humans and we all have similar issues with food. Simply putting some thought behind daily actions makes a huge difference. The only thing you have to lose is your current mindset.
I can’t wait to see you in the course!
