Your Best Body Weight-Loss – A Program to End Emotional Eating & Food Addiction
If you’re done with yoyo-dieting, diet shame and the restrict-binge cycle then you have arrived at the correct place. Your Best Body Weight-Loss is a program that is about sane and sustainable weight-loss. It is based on the science of how our habits influence our brain and eating behaviour as well as how the food we eat affects our biology and brain.
I described in a previous post how True to Yourself Eating is different from dieting because it’s all about YOU. Your Best Body Weight-Loss combines the best aspects of mindfulness-based eating with the science of bio-individual nutrition. Addressing emotional eating and self-sabotage is important, but will only take you so far. Your Best Body Weight-Loss program assists you in co-creating meal plans that are unique to your body type and lifestyle, trouble-shooting based on challenges and triggers that are unique to your life and helps you to find time for meal prep and self-care.
By combining the principles of eating psychology with practical lifestyle changes, you can expect to transform your relationship to food and achieve your best body by:
- Free yourself from overeating and cravings by getting to the root of dysfunctional eating.
- Learn the psychology of willpower and how to keep it topped up by cultivating skill power
- Burn more calories and increase energy and motivation by healing an injured metabolism with food therapy.
- Learn to make effortless food choices by understanding the neuro-addictive properties of food and how it affects the body’s ability to regulate appetite and cravings.
*No weigh-ins, no calorie counting, no shaming!
Below is a description of what the program will cover as well as the different topics that are covered in each module.
End YO-YO dieting and heal your relationship to food:
♥ Address the root cause of weight gain by examining your relationship to food and eating. Look at the why, how and when we eat, not just what we are eating
♥ Learn about the neuro-psychology of certain foods and eating, how they affect your body’s ability to regulate appetite and cravings, the addictive and therapeutic properties of specific foods.
♥ Overcome your emotional triggers, dysfunctional habits and the reasons why you self-sabotage.
♥ Design an individualized eating plan that is based on your needs, your body-type, your preferences and your intentions.
♥ Increase metabolism by turning off your F.A.T. Programs and tapping into your sub-conscious!
♥ Uncover what is absent from your life or what unfulfilled dreams are fueling the dysfunctional behaviours and thoughts. Learn to fill up on LIFE not food.
♥ Accomplish weight loss without restriction and deprivation. Willpower is finite. Learn self-love and skill power.
