Are you ready to heal your relationship with food and your body, once and for all?

A NEW kind of coaching and support online community

Freedom with Food and Fitness is an online community where we coach and support women through the philosophy of intuitive eating, an anti-diet philosophy that gives trust back to our bodies in terms of what they need to thrive. We reject diet culture’s harmful messages that tell us we need to be thin or fit to be valued, beautiful, and worthy. We help women with eating disorders, as well as those who have become disordered eaters through years of yo-yo dieting.

Freedom with Food and Fitness is unique in the body positivity and ED recovery space because it incorporates fitness into your journey to reclaiming your life, happiness, and sanity. We teach you that joyful movement is a vital and enjoyable part of life, even if you need to heal your relationship with it first.

Hi, I’m Alana Van Der Sluys.

I’m a Health At Every Size-registered Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor (in training), author, speaker and founder of Freedom with Food and Fitness, LLC.

I am six years recovered from a five-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.

What do other women have to say about

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!"
