When the COVID-19 pandemic first hit, Tiffany Calcutt had to completely change the way she interacted with clients.
As the owner of Harvest Nutrition and Wellness in Peterborough, Calcutt had traditionally operated in a way that really mimicked what she learned in school: counting calories, focusing on weight loss, protein, exercise. It varied from client to client, but it almost always meant a trip to the scale to track progress.
But unable to meet people in person, forced Calcutt to take a step back and look at how she did things on a more philosophical level.
“I started to recognize there’s so many other ways to gauge improvement,” Calcutt said. “COVID gave me the space to learn how to divert from the scale as a matrix for progression.”
What it led to was the discovery of the 10 principles of intuitive eating.
“It’s definitely an established form that I’ve come to learn about,” Calcutt said. “And it’s very well researched.”
