Who This Course Is For

This course is for people who have a lot of stress or confusion about how they should be eating. It’s for those of us who overthink food choices, or who live off and on a diet, or struggle with compulsive eating. It's for people who want to learn how to eat intuitively, and who might want to lose weight. It is for people who suspect that they eat for emotional reasons but can't figure out how to stop. This course is for people who are exhausted with their relationship with food and their body and are ready for a new approach!

  • The eating patterns that you have right now are not going to change on their own. Until you correct the brain patterns that drive you, it is likely that nothing will be different.

This course will help chronic dieters, people who need to lose weight for health reasons, people who are binge eaters, people who swing between trying to lose weight and giving up, people who want to learn how to accept their bodies, and people who carry shame around their eating habits and their appearance.

You can take this course at your own pace.

Course will include practical food assignments as well as a deep dive into the behavioral roots of your relationship with eating

  • Module 1: Intuitive and mindful eating. Learning about food and the body, ideal body weights, and how to eat without being on a diet.

  • Module 2: Investigating the patterns that drive us using the Internal Family Systems model of the brain and behavior. This is not our biological family, but our family of patterns of behavior and thoughts.

Questions From People Considering Enrollment

  • Can the course be completed in less than 10 weeks?

    The course is totally self paced and can be taken at a fast pace, however slower is generally much more effective. Some people might prefer to take the class at a very slow pace and allow many weeks to complete. This course covers a LOT of material and is helpful to refer back to again and again. The goal is to change your relationship with eating from the inside-out.

  • What if I have a personal question or need more support?
