Leave fad diets behind, learn how to eat vegan, get all the nutrients you need, and lose the extra weight in the process
Fad Diet Recovery
Sorry, this program is closed for renovations!
Watch this space for new ideas in 2018...
Are you ready to lose those extra pounds that make your pants too tight, and make you feel like a hibernating mama bear? Are you sick of being at your heaviest weight ever?
Reality check: dieting and depriving don't work.
Restriction leads to low energy, cravings - and then binge eating to make up for it.
If you feel hungry all the time, and never have enough energy to enjoy your life, there is something missing!
If you constantly feel guilty or ashamed about "cheating", there is a better way!
If you're stuck in that negative diet cycle, or the yo-yo, it's time to reframe your mindset. Let's interrupt that pattern that doesn't serve you.
If you're ready to lose the extra weight, gain tons of energy, take control of your health, and never diet again, I'm ready for you!
Together, we can put you back in control and get your life back.
I want to invite you to join me for an online program called Fad Diet Recovery. We're going to reframe from that mentality of deprivation and rules and short term thinking, to one of abundance and choice and long term health.
We're going to take a giant leap into your new healthy life.
One small step at a time.
Until you are unstoppable.
Let me help you drop those extra pounds, while eating amazing food, and have a blast doing it!
This is the immediately practical stuff. We'll look at how calorie and nutrient density can create health and weight loss without restricting your body from what it needs to stay energized, and without leaving you feeling deprived. We'll talk about how to portion meals appropriately for your energy needs and weight goals, and you'll get access to a dynamic portion calculator to show you exactly what that looks like for your specific needs when putting together meals and snacks. You'll get a grocery list of the best foods to stock up your new healthy kitchen, and tips to make drinking water more fun.
This week, we'll tackle the hard stuff. When it comes to cravings and emotions, you need to delve deeper into the psychological side of life. We'll go deep into triggers, reactions and coping mechanisms, and then talk about how to work through them with practical techniques as well as getting deeper motivation to strengthen your resolve. Also how to navigate the world of restaurants and parties, and getting through your weekend with grace and ease, while maintaining your health priorities.
Let's talk about supplements: the good, the bad, and the ugly. Weight loss pills are not the answer, but there are some specific nutritional supplements that can improve your metabolism, blood sugar balance, and make weight loss easier. Let's give your body a boost in breaking through your plateau and dropping the lingering pounds. Sometimes, your body is out of balance in some way that keeps you from losing weight, no matter how closely you follow a diet and exercise plan. In those cases, you need some specific and targeted approaches to regain balance to drop those stubborn pounds. These situations may come and go through your life, so even if you don't have these problems now, the information may serve you well in future.
You'll learn why exercise is so important, not just for burning calories but for boosting your metabolism long term. Even if you don't feel fit enough to exercise, we'll ease you in to a routine that you can stick with. We'll also talk about sleep, and the effect that dieting has on your sleep patterns, which in turn affects your ability to resist cravings. We'll talk about willpower, and how to cultivate a mindset of gratitude.
We'll talk about how to ease out of the program and into your new life with a plan for long term balance and progress. We'll talk about stress, and how being too stringent with rules can create blocks to health and weight loss. You’ll also learn strategies for maintaining balance and nutrition in the months and years to come, so you can truly live the life you deserve.

Start the program whenever works for you, and the audios + recipes of the program are yours to download and keep forever! You'll likely listen to them over and over, getting something new each time.
What sets this program apart:
This is not just a bunch of recipes thrown together like the cheap and free diet programs out there, set at unrealistically (and unhealthfully) low calorie levels that can damage your body in the long term.
This is a step-by-step program full of nutritionally balanced meals put together by a Registered Holistic Nutritionist to give you the fuel and nourishment you need to reach your goals.
Holistic program, NOT a "diet"
NB: This is not a get-skinny-quick scheme, or a bikini model diet.
This program is about breaking out of the diet mentality, and reframing the mindset of deprivation.
It's about finding the mindset of abundance, gratitude and happiness. You'll get the tools to drop the extra weight and - more importantly - the strategy to live life the way you want and deserve to live it.

Q: "I've tried all kinds of diets, and they just didn't work. I've failed so many times, what makes you think this program will work for me?"
A: This isn't a diet, and it isn't a one-size-fits-all program. You'll go through, step-by-step, the practical and the mindset shifts that will show you how to start losing weight - and how to make this a long-term lifestyle change. The accountability and support of your nutritionist and the group is a key component in helping you stick with this long enough to see results.
Although the program is set up to go through about 4 weeks, you have the opportunity for a one-on-one with me to discuss your challenges and strategize future steps, plus unlimited access to the group discussion for as long as you need it. You are not a failure. The attempts you've made may have failed in the past, but you can only find success if you keep trying after those failed attempts. I have way more respect for those who keep picking themselves up than those who get it perfectly the first time. It's courageous to keep picking yourself up.
