Who I Am

I'm Catherine L. Taylor, a weight loss/life coach, mindfulness teacher, and emotional eating expert who has been helping women transform their relationship with food and their bodies for over a decade now.  I am also the author of the ebooks "Affirmations for Weight Loss and Wellness,"  "Visualization for Weight Loss", and "The Law of Attraction for Weight Loss."  
My life's mission is to bring people out of the shadows of overeating and into the light of joy.  I help people make peace with food, lose weight with joy, and blossom into the person they were always meant to be.
I personally understand the pain and struggle of feeling out of control and being consumed by thoughts of food, weight, and dieting. When I was just a teenager, I was told to lose 10 lbs. for modeling. This was the trigger that set off a 13 year struggle with food and weight obsession in the form of binge eating disorder alternating with fad diets and exercise bulimia. I would consume huge quantities of food and then diet and exercise the weight off, only to repeat the cycle over and over again.

This ultimately cost me my health in the form of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome which took me years to recover from. I have over 25 years of recovery from overeating now, and I have never dieted since. My passion is sharing my wisdom with others so they can experience the same freedom and success.

Who This Program is For

The How You do Food is How You do Life Program® is for anyone who struggles with food, emotional eating, and/or weight issues and understands that the biggest obstacle they face is their own mind.  You may have done some consciousness work and/or therapy, and are interested in a holistic, mind/body/spirit approach. 
The goals of this program are to become more balanced in mind and body, develop strategies and practices that allow you to achieve your goals, learn to eat and live in a more mindful, intuitive way, learn how to connect deeply with yourself and your inner wisdom, let go of limiting thoughts, feelings, and beliefs, learn how to deal your feelings and stress in healthier ways, learn new ways to nurture yourself (that aren't time consuming), and feed your deeper hungers. When this happens, emotional eating begins to fade away and food begins to take its proper place in your life.
If weight loss is meant to happen, it will occur naturally as a result of this process. Some of you may be more interested in the emotional eating recovery and mindful eating aspects, and may not have much or any weight to lose. This program will work for you too.
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!
This program isn't for you if you want to lose weight quickly. It's designed to create internal shifts first which will lead to weight loss as an end result and at a pace that your body can sustain and maintain. This is not a diet program, but a new way of being and living, not something you're going to go off of once you lose the weight. You will not be given a diet or exercise plan. This program isn't for you if you're not ready to put the material into practice. You will get out of it what you put it into it. Your full participation is required if you want it to be successful.
Coaching is all about action, because insight without action is worthless. You must be open, ready, and willing to do something different so that you can finally achieve the results you're looking for!

                            How Group Coaching Works

Group coaching provides structure, and the guidance and support you need in order to be successful. The beauty of group coaching is that as you listen to others' similiar experiences and struggles, you will see yourself in them. Because of this, the group format can foster and accelerate new learning, insight, and growth. 

Note: You will not be forced to speak and participate. You are encouraged to do so, but if you just want to listen that's ok too. Nor, do you even need to attend the live calls. You can get the assignments and recordings the next morning. The most important thing is that you're willing to put the assignments into practice. 

The group will meet for a total of 6 sessions starting September 19,2018 meeting every other week over a period of 3 months.  Each session is a 30-45 minute live coaching call with me.  If you can't attend the live calls, no worries, as each will be recorded and sent to you the next day along with the weekly assignments. 

I am using teleconferencing that is free to you as long as you have free long distance. It also includes international local call in numbers for most major countries. If you have a question of whether your country is included, contact me at my website. Canada isn't included.

If you're country isn't included, you can still get the call recordings and assignments the next day. The link is at the very bottom of this page. You will have daily access to a private Facebook group as well where you will receive daily support and inspiration. 

During each call, we will go over the previous week's assignment and then turn over the session to the group to answer questions, brainstorm, and coach individual participants. You will be given tools, strategies, and personalized feedback from me so that you can effectively utilize the information we are covering. We will discuss where you're stuck or struggling, and what you can do about it. I will then introduce the chosen topic and talk for about 30 mins.

For purposes of anonymity, during coaching calls, group members will be addressed by first name only.

Along with each session, you will receive customized handouts and assignments designed by me. Each week, you will receive a new assignment.

As a special bonus, you will receive a private 30 minute individual coaching session ($95 value) with me. You can use this time during the 12 week session or several weeks afterwards, so that you can receive my personal support. 

During this private time, we will work on any areas that are holding you back from being successful losing weight or causing you to eat emotionally. You will come away with personalized strategies to help you move forward.  

You will also receive copies of my ebooks "The Power of Affirmations" and "Visualization for Weight Loss."  A $25.00 bonus value. 

You will also have access to a private Facebook group where you can share your experience, get encouragement, and receive daily support from myself and others who are in the group.

To insure individual attention, the group size is limited, so please book your spot early as these spots fill up quickly. The last group sold out in a few days.

Below is the schedule for The How You do Food is How You do Life Program®

Each coaching call is 30-45 mins. I use teleconferencing that includes free local call in international numbers for most countries, except for Canada. If your country isn't listed or you can't attend because of time zone or shedule, you can still participate in the program.  The recordings are emailed out to you the next day. You will own these recordings so that you can reference them in the future.

How Much Time is Required to Participate in  The How You do Food is How You do Life Program?®

You will be spending 30-45 minutes a week on the calls and another half hour - 1 hour each week reading and applying the materials. Your life is your actual practice, so you will be applying what you learn during the course of your regular routine.  Of course, you may be creating new habits or routines, so you may want to allow time for these.  

The calls will be recorded, so if you miss a session, or want to listen to them again, they are yours to keep. 





What People Say

Your course really opened my eyes. I was so down on myself because I could never follow a diet perfectly. It never dawned on me that my perfectionism combined with diets was really the problem! You helped me to quit being so hard on myself. I learned that my efforts each day really add up as long as I don't quit from not doing things perfectly.

During this course, I haven't been perfect and I've managed to lose 22 lbs. without dieting. Just eating when I'm hungry, stopping when I'm full, exercising a bit, and eliminating all that emotional eating has really worked!

~ Linda

"I have lost 14 pounds with your course.  I have been on every diet and program known to mankind.  I am about 100 pounds overweight. For me, the two most helpful tips were to be mindful when choosing what to eat or when eating and to eat when hungry.  That sounds so simple but that has really changed my relationship with food.  I no longer turn to food or use food as a crutch.   It only took me 58 years!"

Geri S. 

Geri lost 14 lbs. and is no longer using food as a crutch!


Not only did I lose 10 pounds, but you helped me change my black and white thinking. My husband has commented that he feels like he doesn't know me, since before it was always my way or a certain way.

Now, that I'm willing to hear his way and agree that he has some valid points, he is excited. He says that hasn't happened in over 10 years! 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.

Thank you Catherine for helping me make these changes and shifts in my attitude that I've been struggling with for over 10 years! I'm so excited!
