Who is this for?
- You think all you need is a positive attitude before you can start to loose weight.
- You've been trying to lose weight for years, you have tried every diet and you are still unhappy with your health and the way you feel.
- You think you need to be tough on yourself to stay committed to your goals.
- You think the key to success is to forbid yourself certain foods and avoid the things you love.
- You think ‘if only I had more discipline’ this time will be a success.
- You believe that loosing weight is the only way to be happy and fulfilled.
- You know you should speak kindly to yourself, but find it difficult.
What makes us become so narrow in our focus that we lose sight of everything except our diet and weight? What happened to the rest of our life? Why do we keep returning to fad diets and crazy exercise schemes when we know they don’t work?
The answer? We’re human. We all get stuck at times. We all become inflexible, lose touch with what we care about and act in self-defeating ways that ultimately increase our suffering and pain and stops us from being the person we really want to be.
In this course I’ll show you how and why we get stuck in ‘the weight trap’ - that destructive cycle of dieting and weight-gain. I’ll show you how to escape the trap, get unstuck and lead a more full and meaningful life.

What else is included?

- Understand how your digestion, diet, environment, sleep, relationships, stress, thoughts and feelings all affect your health.
