Dieting and Deprivation Doesn’t Work
We all want to be healthy and feel good in our bodies, but the current paradigm focuses way too much on achieving an ideal body type through calorie restriction, demonizing foods, deprivation, dieting, and willpower. And we’ve been immersed in this behavior for decades, essentially going insane by doing the same thing over and over, expecting a different result.
Food and physical activity are important components of optimal health, but they are not the only areas of our lives that promote our health and well-being. Our friendships and intimate relationships, physical environment, work, finances, spiritual practice, and our sense of safety, pleasure, joy, and creativity all impact our choices and health outcomes.
Instead of focusing on what we think is bad or wrong about our current choices, numbers on the scale, or BMI, how about we shift the focus to adding in and doing more of what feels good and is good for us?
If you are
- struggling to reach your health goals
- busy but not productive
- doing all the right things and not getting results you desire
- wanting to make changes to your diet and increase your physical activity
- feeling overwhelmed by all the diet and nutrition information out there
- unfulfilled in your relationships and/or your work
- feeling disconnected from the activities and experiences that used to bring you pleasure and satisfaction
you’re in the right place.
Honeybee Wellness Club is an online community for health, wellness, and fitness enthusiasts who want to feel good in their bodies and their lives without the pressures of dieting, deprivation, BMI, counting calorioes, carbs, protein, fat, or the numbers on the scale.
Together, we’ll achieve our wellness goals by clarifying our desires, engaging in continuous personal development, creating new habits such as meal planning and prepping, time blocking, cycle syncing, daily physical activity, and taking consistent action.
We’ll engage in activities that provide structure, improve our energy and endurance, and to just feel good.
We’ll choose foods that taste good and are good for us. We’ll create new habits. We’ll support each other by maintaining firm boundaries but still being flexible and fluid.
We support Health and Every Size and focus more on the gains, not the losses.

About Honeybee Holistic
Chances are you’re feeling overwhelmed, overworked, underpaid, and underappreciated in your personal and professional life. You want to make better choices, but you don’t want to give up what feels and tastes good in order to feel good in your body and in your life.
Our current options for healthy living are full of eat this, not that, and rarely take into account what we have going on in our lives or even that some of us are fine with the size we’re at, we just want to feel stronger, empowered, well rested, and energized. Sure, you’ll eat a kale salad or drink a smoothie, take a walk or work out, but you also want a life that includes bacon, brownies, sleeping in, and maybe even a shot of bourbon.
You want to figure out how to ease into healthier choices by adding in more of the good stuff instead of focusing on what you “can’t” or “shouldn’t” eat/do. You want to try different foods and workouts at your own pace without judgment.
As you maintain committed and consistent, your weight may not change, but your skin might clear up, you may get the best sleep you’ve had in years, and your endurance, stamina, and even libido may increase. And maybe, you’ll no longer want the things you thought you needed to feel good.
That’s Honeybee Holistic.
