How many times have you 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, I bet you are ready to try something different – something that WORKS.
If so, this is the program for you.
12 Week Transformation is an online program that includes weekly live virtual lessons and a support group.
It 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.
You’ll find this course is like no other – it combines every aspect of weight loss into one comprehensive program.
You will learn everything you need to know to achieve a healthy weight, including the basics of weight loss; how your body and mind can work against you; the truth about calories, sugar, fat, and carbohydrates; what to eat and when; the myths, misconceptions, and outright lies that have kept you overweight; the role of exercise; and much more!
This online group coaching program opens in January 2019. Join today to grab your spot!
By now, you might be wondering who I am and why you should trust me to help you.
Well, I have personally struggled with weight fluctuations in the past. That’s what led me to study health and nutrition formally. I never stop learning – this is my passion. I’m always looking for new ways to help people be their happiest and healthiest self.
I recently completed the Precision Nutrition Level 1 Nutrition Coach certification, which taught me a great deal about the psychological challenges people who want to lose weight face, and how to help them overcome obstacles to success.
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 commercial 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.
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 this program comes in.
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 make lasting lifestyle changes, you have to understand how your environment and your mind can work against you.
This can be very challenging, especially if you lack knowledge about what to eat, when to eat, how to exercise, and (most important) 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 can you succeed?
That’s where nutrition and weight loss coaches come in.
I would love to help you learn everything you need to know to reach your ideal weight and stay there forever through this 12 Week Transformation Program. I’ll guide you through it all, and will provide you with encouragement and support the entire way.
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.
Weight loss and developing healthier habits are largely mental endeavors. I’ve studied habit change psychology extensively, and I have lots (and lots!) of tools to help you get through the mental barriers that can sabotage success.
The coaching method I use is based on safe and effective principles that are supported by research and have a proven track record.
Here is an overview of what you will learn in this program, which will begin in January 2019.
The program consists of 12 weekly lessons, which are held in a virtual interactive online classroom. If you miss a session, don’t worry – they will be recorded so you can listen anytime (you also can repeat lessons as needed – the recordings will be accessible to you).
This 12-week program includes two modules: Weight Loss 101 and Weight Loss Psychology and Behavior Change.
In Weight Loss 101, you will learn…
- Clarification of terms like “diet” and why focusing on fat loss instead of weight loss is ideal
- Why most diets fail (it isn’t your fault!)
- 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
- How to build your ideal “diet” (It is SO much easier than you think!)
- Artificial sweeteners and how they sabotage your efforts
- Tracking your progress – including “Non-Scale Victories”
- The truth about the role exercise plays in weight loss and maintenance
- 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
In Weight Loss Psychology and Behavior Change, we will cover the following in depth:
- How and why we often sabotage ourselves and how to overcome it
- Identifying and managing mental obstacles that interfere with lasting weight loss
- How to change habits so you can finally reach your goals
- Stress management techniques
- Sleep improvement tips and tricks
Also included with this course:
- Worksheets to help you identify habits you would like to change
- Handy portion size guides
- Shopping lists and kitchen set-up worksheets
- Access to my exclusive members-only Facebook group, where you can ask me questions, get encouraging feedback, and interact with other people taking this journey
