Every diet digs you deeper into a hole - a hole filled with:
anxiety and stress
mistrust in your body and in food
perpetual failure and shame
And in the end, you gain your weight back and then some, because the stress, mistrust, and shame set you up to overeat!
The Mindful Weight Loss approach isn't a diet. This isn't about adhering to external rules that tell you what to eat, how much to eat, when to eat, or how to move your body.
Mindful Weight Loss is an inside-out approach that shows you how to harness YOUR power to create change.
Mindful Weight Loss will teach you:
to understand your brain, biology, and why you overeat
to manage your mindset and allow your emotions
how to make peace with your body
how to truly enjoy food
how to have a positive relationship with yourself and with life
The 3-month framework will help you:
LEARN how the overeating habit works, how your brain falls into the overeating trap, and how you can stop it
DO the work of behavior change by applying the right thoughts and strategies to your instances of overeating
BECOME someone who thinks and acts so that overeating is no longer an issue
Each week includes:
Instructive, inspiring audios with new concepts and tools
Daily exercises and worksheets to reinforce your learning
A new meditation to increase your awareness and insight
Continuous support (ask me ANY question and get a response within two business days)
It's enough content to push you but not too much to overwhelm you.
See what you'll learn each week:
Month 1: Awareness
This is our learning phase. You'll discover the right mindset that you've likely been missing, what truly drives you to overeat, and the strategic framework you can use to defeat overeating.
Week 1: Mindset & Tracking
We begin by creating the right mindset and zeroing in on the real problem (Hint: it's not you, your discipline, food, or specific foods like sugar, carbs, or fat.) You'll begin meditating and tracking your food and your weight to proactively create a more positive, balanced relationship with food, the scale, and your brain.
Week 2: Thoughts
In week two you'll discover how your thoughts contribute to overeating. You'll learn about the cognitive-behavioral model and the work of Byron Katie. We'll also examine the human propensity to judge, argue with reality, and beat ourselves up.
Week 3: Why You Overeat
In week three we dissect the overeating habit so you can clearly see what is truly driving you to overeat. We'll break down the different types of cues and take stock of your own patterns so we are ready to apply the right strategies to overcome them.
Week 4: Strategy Builder
Once you understand the overeating habit, it's time to apply the corresponding strategy to defeat it! You will learn a simple but extremely powerful framework you can apply to ALL of your instances of overeating.
Month 2: Strategy
In month two we apply all that we've learned. We'll use and refine our strategies to defeat the overeating habit, and we'll dive deep into each element of the habit to make these strategies bulletproof. We'll also learn about balancing dopamine and how to start moving towards a new identity.
Week 5: Cues
In week five we dive deep into habit cues, examining everyday cues, unlikely cues, hidden cues, and more. By the end, you'll be confident that your cues no longer own you. You'll own them!
Week 6: Thoughts
In week six we reinforce and build on lessons we learned in week two. You'll become an expert at how to identify your negative thought patterns and cognitive distortions and how to reframe and respond to them.
Week 7: Feelings
When we no longer use overeating to cope with our emotions we need to learn how to allow them. This week you'll practice allowing and feeling your feelings, including hunger and cravings.
Week 8: Actions
In week eight we identify the ideal alternative actions to use when faced with urges to overeat. By the end, you'll have a robust understanding of your dopamine pathways, and how to balance dopamine to create new habits that stick.
Month 3: Identity
In month three we do the work of identity change to ensure that you can be done with overeating for good. We'll leverage the powers of reframing, ritual, and mental rehearsal to keep you moving away from overeating and towards your desired future.
Week 9: Behaviors
In week nine we move beyond actions to define the behaviors of your future self. We literally begin to create the new you by deciding where the energy of the overeating habit can be placed once it's gone.
Week 10: Rituals & Mental Rehearsal
In week ten we learn to create habits with greater awareness, and how to harness the brain's inability to judge real from imagined events to generate our desired future even faster.
Week 11: The Past
In week 11 we create a practice to rewrite the past, befriend ourselves, and accept reality so that we can move past limiting beliefs that may have been keeping us stuck.
Week 12: The Future
Finally, in week 12, we renew our commitment to continue to defeat overeating and refine our rituals to ensure that we are actively creating our future - a future that doesn't include overeating - each and every day.
