About Xenia Ayiotis

I know the despair and stress that comes from being unhappy with the way you eat, your body and wanting desperately to have a normal relationship with food.

For almost 30 years I struggled with binge eating, overeating, mindless eating. I hated my body and myself for years of yo-yo dieting, losing and gaining weight every year.

This was the one area of my life, I just couldn’t work out. There had to be another way other than dieting to stop the food noise in my head, heal my relationship with food and accept my body.

I understand what it feels like to believe:

  • I don’t have willpower and discipline
  • I have no control over food
  • I hate my body
  • I just love food too much
  • I will always binge eat
  • I can’t imagine a peaceful relationship with food

I went on every diet imaginable, took pills, appetite suppressants and injections. I spent a fortune on programmes, doctors and dieticians. I cut out carbs, ate fat-free food and even lived on pineapple for 2 weeks in winter!

I managed to get 3 degrees and learn to speak 5 languages – why couldn’t I figure this out? Eating isn’t rocket science! This was the one area of my life, I just couldn’t work out and the source of my greatest pain. I reached a point where I just could not do it anymore – there had to be another way to stop all the food noise in my head!

There is – and it works.

I hired a coach, embarked on a journey within exploring my relationship with food and in the process, discovered something a whole lot more valuable than weight loss. I never would have thought that my biggest problem would turn out to be my biggest gift! I gained so much from the process that I decided to quit a successful career in tourism and become a coach to help other people gain peace and freedom from obsessing about food and their bodies…

“Wellness isn't about deprivation and it's not about perfection. It is about pointing yourself in the direction of growth, training yourself to get comfortable with your highest potential and then taking small steps to support that shift. It is about showing up for yourself day by day and then one day finding that you have undergone a transformation.”
