Can’t Lose Weight, and Not Sure Why?

The Answer May Surprise You

If you are struggling to lose weight and don’t know why, you are not alone. The truth is that weight loss is a lot more complicated than just changing our diets; it also requires a new way of thinking about ourselves and a healthy lifestyle. (To learn more, register now for my free 1 hour online weight loss seminar on September 19th.)

Your Stress Affects Weight Gain and Loss

Stress eating is real. Studies have shown that if you are stressed while eating, you are more likely to put on weight. Stress releases Cortisol, the “Fight or Flight” hormone that causes insulin resistance and increased fat storage.

If you are under constant stress, then everything else you are doing – counting calories, fad diets, consuming weight loss bars and shakes – are just not going to be enough to help you reach your weight loss goals.

Most of the clients I see already know that they aren’t always making the best food choices. They are educated on portion sizes and counting calories. They know the latest apps that can help keep track. The challenge is in carrying through with the behavior needed to sustain a consistent healthy lifestyle. This is where I can help. 

The Psychology of Behavior Change and Weight Loss

Weight loss and a healthy lifestyle can only be achieved if you address the mental health issues and behaviors that keep you stuck in the weight loss/gain and stress/shame cycle.

My focus is on the psychological component which is often missing in diet programs. I have three reliable tools that work together to help you move forward with permanent weight loss and a healthy lifestyle.

You Deserve A Personalized Weight loss Program

Everyone is different; what works for someone else, may not be exactly what you need. I will develop a personalized six session holistic Coaching and Hypnosis weight loss program created based on your needs, and through it you’ll learn how to:

By implementing these proven strategies and techniques, you will feel physically lighter, healthier, and more attractive. This will increase your self esteem and confidence, and improve your overall mental health and well-being.

A Weight Loss Book

My weight loss book, “21 Winning Tips to Begin a Healthy Mindset and Lifestyle Change!” contains proven methods that have helped thousands of clients. You’ll learn to make lasting adjustments to your mindset around food and eating, to take control of your eating behavior.

Whether you struggle with emotional eating, compulsive overeating or feelings of defeat and failure, you can experience new found hope for a healthy lifestyle by practicing these 21 winning tips.

Weight Loss Hypnosis and Guided Visualization Recordings

My weight loss hypnosis/guided visualization mp3s work to change the subconscious beliefs that are blocking you from making progress, and help reinforce the positive changes that you choose to put in place. These can be listened to on your schedule, with nighttime and daytime versions.

Rather than feeling that you “have to” or “should” choose healthier foods etc., these recordings help you to relax and truly want to eat healthier food. That is the magic of working with your subconscious mind.

Please note that when you purchase a personalized weight loss program, you will also receive my weight loss book and weight loss hypnosis/visualization daytime and nighttime recordings.
