If you're like most people, you've probably tried willpower and dieting to lose weight. Unfortunately, for most people this is not enough. The reason willpower and diets fail is because most people overeat for emotional reasons. Emotional eating is a response to various environmental and emotional triggers. These triggers range from stress, exhaustion, uncomfortable thoughts and feelings, procrastination, boredom, and a need for pleasure and comfort.
The How You do Food is How You do Life Emotional Eating Program is designed to get at the core issues of what triggers overeating. It provides you with solid strategies to overcome the reasons why you turn to food. It teaches you how to identify what your true needs are and teaches you appropriate ways to meet them so that you won't be tempted to turn to food. This is the key to overcoming emotional eating.
The online 12 week self-paced home study program consists of 6 modules that will transform your relationship with food, get you off the dieting hamster wheel, teach you ways to deal with your stressful and sabotaging thoughts and emotions, teach you how to eat mindfully, and allow your body to lose weight naturally without dieting.
You will also learn how to set up a self-care routine that isn't time consuming so that you can start your day calm, centered, and nurtured. You will become more mindful and peaceful in all areas of your life because "how you do food is how you do life!"
So what does the phrase "How you do food is how you do life" mean?
People who eat overeat often don't realize that their issue with food and weight isn't the real problem. It's only a symptom - a symptom of how they are living their life. If your life is stressful, then you will turn to food to cope with that stress. If your life lacks pleasure and excitement, you will turn to food looking for pleasure and excitement. If you try to control and restrict your food, you will become obsessed with food and overeat. You eat how you are. When you're at peace with yourself, you become at peace with food. How you do food is how you do life!

|"Your course really opened my eyes. I was so down on myself because I thought I needed to follow a diet perfectly. It never dawned on me that my perfectionism, black and white thinking combined with diets was really the problem!
During this course, I haven't been perfect and I've managed to lose 22 lbs. without dieting. Just eating when I'm hungry, exercising a bit, and eliminating all that emotional eating has really worked!"
|"Not only did I lose 10 pounds, but you helped me change my black and white thinking.
I think making myself a priority and following a self-care program has really helped me to make changes outwardly as well as inwardly.
I really feel good about myself, the changes I'm making regarding eating healthy foods and my attitude that this is my new healthy lifestyle, not a diet."
This module explores the language and differences between feelings and emotions. You will learn how to identify and process your feelings and emotions. You will also learn how to develop the witness self: the thinker of your thoughts, so that you can become a witness to your thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. This allows you to make better choices in the moment.
Lack of self-love and self-neglect is often at the root of overeating and dieting. Losing weight as an act of self-love is a radically different experience than trying to whip yourself into submission because you hate yourself and your body.
|"Since taking your course, I have changed my focus from trying to control my eating habits to finding new coping strategies when I find I am eating when I am not hungry.
Mindfulness is making a big difference!"
|"I really enjoyed these sessions! I needed a course like this in order to try to release my internal blocks and to figure out why I was continuously sabotaging myself during weight loss.
I highly recommend taking these sessions if you are someone who needs help figuring out why you eat emotionally and for support to help stop the behavior."
