Have you ever tried to lose weight, only to end up feeling frustrated and defeated?
Maybe you have lost a few pounds in the past – or even a significant amount of weight – only to gain it back, and then some.
How many times have you started a new diet, only to ditch it and go back to your former eating habits within a few weeks?
Have you tried every new diet plan in existence?
Bought every hot new bestselling diet book?
Experimented with the all the latest weight loss trends?
If you answered “Yes!” to any of those questions, our online coaching program is the solution for you.
Diet Anarchy is a customized weight loss coaching program that is designed to help you learn how to lose the extra weight you’ve been battling with once and for all – and keep it off for life.
This is NOT a diet plan. This is not a calorie-counting, track-your-every-bite kind of program. I will not subject you to the tortures of a structured meal plan. I want you to enjoy life, and I do not want eating to cause you stress. Together, we will build a way-of-eating that works for YOU and your lifestyle.
This program aims to help you change the way you THINK about yourself and attaining your goals via improving your self-image.
You must change your MIND to change your LIFE.
By now, you might be wondering who I am and why you should trust me to help you.
My name is Lisa, and I have personally struggled with weight fluctuations in the past. That’s what led me to study health and nutrition formally, and to continue learning as a hobby. It’s my passion.
For many years, I worked as a weight loss professional: first, as a personal trainer and nutrition educator, and then as a manager and counselor for a major weight loss company.
During that time, every day I met with people who were frustrated, depressed, sick, tired, annoyed, and defeated. Many of them had struggled with their weight for decades. Some began battling obesity in childhood or their teen years. Most of them had weight-related illnesses, including type 2 diabetes, liver disease, and cardiovascular disorders.
I learned that a major reason people struggle so much with weight loss is the unnecessary torture they inflict upon themselves – mainly, by reducing their food intake to unhealthy levels.
I also noticed that people tend to really beat themselves up over perceived failures. Self-esteem plummets, and memories of failure interfere with future attempts to succeed.
But the truth is, severe calorie restriction is soul-crushing for most people. It is nearly impossible to stick with, and it leaves you feeling deprived, fatigued, and hopeless. You find yourself focused on what you “can’t” have. The forbidden becomes more irresistible than ever.
It doesn’t have to be that way.
In fact, you should feel great when you are making such an important lifestyle change. After all, how sustainable will the change be if you are miserable every day?
Unfortunately, for many people, most weight loss programs cause a lot of heartache, and end up being one more addition to a long list of failed attempts.
And often, this repeated failure leads to the complete loss of hope.
Chronic dieters start to believe that they are the problem; that they just don’t have enough willpower to stick with a weight loss plan long enough to see results.
But the truth is that diets fail US.
They don’t work most of the time – especially long-term.
If you are reading this, chances are, you are one of the frustrated.
If you have made attempts to lose weight and have not achieved success, or if you have gained back weight you have lost in the past, please do not blame yourself.
The reasons dieting is so difficult and most of us fail are complex, but I’ll sum them up for you: your brain works against you. So does your environment. There is food everywhere – we are constantly surrounded by it, and the most convenient and readily available options are usually not of the healthful variety.
The first step to solving a problem is to understand it.
That’s where my coaching programs come in.
Why is it better to hire a coach than to go it alone?
A coach will…
- Keep you motivated
- Be there for you when you aren’t feeling it
- Actually LISTEN to you
- Help you troubleshoot and problem-solve when challenges arise
- Encourage you to develop the healthy self-esteem you need to succeed
- Provide ongoing attention, support, and added accountability
You absolutely can succeed – there ARE ways to lose weight (I prefer to say lose fat, because scale weight doesn’t tell us much) and keep it off…without suffering and being miserable and wanting to eat everything that isn’t nailed down.
But before you can defeat an opponent, you have to understand what you are up against.
That can be very challenging, especially if you lack knowledge about what to eat, when to eat, how to exercise, and (most importantly!) the behavior changes you’ll need to make to succeed.
As you can see, there’s a lot involved in successful weight loss.
Learning everything that you need to know to lose weight can be overwhelming.
But if you aren’t armed with knowledge, how on Earth can you succeed?
I would love to help you learn how to reach your ideal weight (and how to maintain it) through my Diet Anarchy coaching program.
It has taken me many, many years (and dollars!) to accumulate this knowledge via formal education, lots of reading (hundreds of books, articles, and scientific studies), personal experience, and working directly with clients.
In the last two decades, I’ve learned (often the hard way!) what works and what doesn’t for most people.
Think of this program as a shortcut. It will save you the time and trouble and trial and error (and suffering, and boredom!) of having to sort through all the weight loss information out there to figure out what works and what doesn’t, and how to reach your best weight and maintain it for life. I’ve already done all that work for you.
We will work together to design a program tailored to your specific needs. And, I will provide one-on-one guidance and encouragement throughout your journey.
Want me to help you? You’ve got a lot of options!
One 1.5 hour video call session with email follow up – for those who just need a little help. I’ll email you a questionnaire and you can let me know what you’d like to focus on during this session.
One-On-One Coaching Program
This program includes two major components: Education and Support and Encouragement.
You will learn everything you need to know to achieve and maintain a healthy weight, including…
The basics of weight loss:

- Why the scale is a horrible device that you should toss out of a window
- Calories – to count or not to count?
- What macronutrients are and why they are important
- The truth about dietary fat
- The (ugly) truth about sugar
- Artificial sweeteners and how they sabotage your efforts
- Insulin and the critical role it plays in weight management
- Type 2 Diabetes and metabolic syndrome
- Digestion, and how keeping your gut happy helps weight loss
- How your mind can work against you and what to do about it
- Habit changes

- The myths, misconceptions, and outright lies that have kept you overweight

- Daily email-check ins and on-demand support (feel free to email me as often as needed!)
- Two 15-minute emergency video or phone calls per month
- Weight loss and habit change lessons to read at your own pace
- Shopping lists and tips
Coaching Program Pricing
After you select a program, I will email you a questionnaire, and we will set up your first video call session at your convenience.
If you aren’t quite ready to commit to a program, and you are still wondering just who the heck I am and if I really can help you, I invite you to try a 15 minute complimentary initial consultation via video call (we will use Skype or Zoom for this).
During this video call, we will get to know each other a bit, you can pick my brain, and you can see if you think I’m a person who can help you achieve your goals.
I am NOT a salesperson – pushy salespeople make me very uncomfortable, so I will never use sales tactics on you. Most free consultations are actually sales presentations. That is NOT what my introductory call is about. The point of this call for YOU to see if I can help you. If you feel I am not the person for the job, no worries – no pressure at all! If you are unsure about me (hey, I am a stranger, after all!) and want to see if we are a good fit, this is a no-commitment way for you to find out.
Options for working with me
If you just need a little guidance, we can set up a Solo Session. The price for that is $60 for a 1.5 hour video call with an email follow-up.
The price for a month of one-on-one coaching is $125. I recommend a year-long commitment, because that’s about how long it takes to make significant changes for most people. If you commit to a year, the monthly rate is $100 ($1200.00 total) instead of $125.
To schedule a complimentary consultation, a Solo Session, or a Month-to-Month plan, please email me at email@example.com.
I will send you a questionnaire so I learn more about you and your needs. Then we will schedule our first call at your convenience.
