Hi, I’m Alana Van Der Sluys.

I’m a Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor, book author, TEDx speaker, and the founder of Freedom with Food and Fitness, LLC.

I spent seven years battling eating disorders, hating my body, obsessing over the scale, and never feeling like I was enough.

My mission is to help you identify diet culture’s false messages about beauty and health; teach you how to become an intuitive eater; provide you with actionable, realistic strategies to achieve food freedom; and inspire you to live a life full of gratitude, purpose, and self-worth beyond your weight.

One of the first steps to becoming an intuitive eater? Ditching the scale!

Easier said than done? Click here to grab my free “Ditching the Scale” worksheet to help you start listening to your own body, instead of the number on the scale!

The best motivator to heal your relationship with food? The dream life that you wish you were living.
