Diets Don't Work
Behavior change does.
I offer an 8 week small group course that focuses on helping you to understand how you use food, finding your triggers for overeating, and learning to listen to your body’s hunger and fullness cues. Use of diet foods and “willpower” (deprivation) is potentially harmful and is discouraged. There are no forbidden foods or special foods to purchase. This course is family and budget friendly. This is a behavior change program based in awareness and personal choice with results that can last a lifetime.
The main goals of this program are to:
Help you to understand your hunger
Reveal your genetic body size and honor it
Guide you in goal setting
Encourage you to find freedom and pleasure in movement
Restore your faith in your ability to make healthy food choices without fear, shame, or guilt
Provide basic nutrition knowledge
End the cycle of: diet – lose – reality – gain – shame – diet – lose…….
