A NEW kind of coaching that works (unlike diets!)

Freedom with Food and Fitness uses a unique, virtual group and private coaching hybrid with the ultimate goal of helping clients become happier, healthier, and more confident in their own skin.

Using the evidence-based, anti-diet framework of intuitive eating, combined with inquiry-based coaching, clients will learn:

💙to manage their thoughts and emotions without turning to food.

💙why they binge/overeat and how to stop for good

💙the truth and myths behind diets, fitness, and nutrition

💙how to uncover the root of their issues with food, weight and their body

💙how to set boundaries around body comments and diet talk

💙how to prioritize self-care

💙how to accept their bodies, starting today

💙incorporate fitness into their lives in a way that feels fun, refreshing, effective, and sustainable.

and so much more!

Hi, I’m Alana Van Der Sluys.

I’m a Health At Every Size-registered Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor, author, speaker and founder of Freedom with Food and Fitness, LLC, located in Oak Ridge, NJ.

I am seven years recovered from a six-year battle with binge-restrict cycles, orthorexia, and body dysmorphic disorder.

My mission is to help women realize how disordered the media’s messages surrounding body, weight, and food have become; teach them about intuitive eating and food freedom; coach them with easy-to-follow strategies on how to implement IE; and inspire them to live a life full of gratitude, purpose, happiness, and self-worth.

Learn what’s REALLY holding you back from being your healthiest, best self.

What do other women have to say about

Alana and Freedom with Food and Fitness?

“Really interesting [introductory course]. I've read the principles of intuitive eating a lot of times but it really helped having someone talk through them and explain each one. It was always good to hear more detail about the 5 myths too. Thank you.”


“My therapist told me to replace pages I followed and find a support group. Sadly a support group was very hard to find. I found Freedom With Food and Fitness- followed along but still the context was tough for me as I struggled. I was having a bad recovery day after cleaning out my closet and I answered one of Alana’s questions. She reached out to me on DM and not only answered but sent me voice messages. She was a real and genuine person who really got me! She questioned my thoughts and made me feel “normal,” not crazy, like normal.”


As someone who has struggled between being a self-proclaimed foodie but also self conscious about her body and weight, this webinar helped me re-examine behaviors like restriction, obsessive tracking and guilt...I also loved the emphasis on how your body feels rather that what narrative your mind is telling you about food. In fact I put it the takeaways practice that night at a restaurant and was able to enjoy my meal without stress (or feeling bloated/overly full after!) ...Alana is a supportive coach and wasn’t afraid to get vulnerable with her own story which I so appreciated. Highly recommend this course!"
