Gain Peace not weight online mini course
Savor food & friends
Holiday eating norms are “eat drink and be merry...” but don’t gain weight.
For dieters, this double standard leads to:
Weight gain that you never lose
Feeling isolated by dietary restrictions
Distrusting your body
Disliking your body
Lack of self-control
Social pressure to eat and drink (or to refrain from eating and drinking)
Letdown when the holidays are suddenly over
Resolve to start a new diet on January 1st
Yes! You Can Quit Sugar (& Fast-Carbs too)!
Back by popular demand! We had a dedicated group of 18 men, women and teenagers complete this program in Fall 2016. Their dedication led to phenomenal outcomes! Alumni loved the group dynamics and the individual coaching so much that many want to join again. We also have a list of people who couldn't attend in fall asking us to launch the program again...here it is!
Join us for a 16-week hybrid (in-person &/or virtual) in-depth coaching program to help you moderate sugar and fast-carbs forever.

Why 16 weeks?
We encourage gradual change vs. quitting sugar cold-turkey. This is a gentler, more sustainable approach.
We have just made it through the most sugar-laden time of year from Halloween through the New Year. Sugar is pervasive in our culture and difficult to weed out! We want to make sure you have the tools and support needed to make lasting behavior and environmental change.
