STAY SATISFIED, LOSE STUBBORN FAT
Are you frustrated with lackluster weight loss?
You’ve put A LOT of effort into diet plans but the weight loss is SO SLOW even though you are following the plan to the “T”!
Tired of losing the same 10 pounds?
On the diet merry-go-round? Do you have “shiny object syndrome”? In the cycle of starting/failing every diet plan that comes your way but only leaves you feeling defeated. Sure, you may have lost a few but the weight comes right back on as soon as you “quit” dieting.
Do you feel like you’re a slave to temptation & cravings?
Food is controlling you rather than the other way around. You feel like you’re the ONLY ONE who cannot pass up dessert or the breadbasket (and then that dessert only leaves you wanting MORE SWEETS). Ugh.
Are you overwhelmed with health information?
You’ve got paralysis by analysis and just don’t know where to begin or who’s information you actually believe. So, you accomplish NOTHING.
Are you sick of the hot flashes & out of control weight gain?
You are having dinner with friends and all of sudden you break into a massive sweat! You’ve spoken to your doctor and have been prescribed hormones to control your out-of-control hormones and you are just not comfortable with this. You’d love to find a more natural solution that might balance your hormones.
Do you feel that your abundant life makes weight loss too complicated?
You live an AWESOME life but are thrown for a loop at parties, playing cards with friends or when traveling (SO fun!). When faced with any sort of temptation you simply throw the plan out the window because you’re just not sure how to handle it.
I CAN RELATE!
I was in a vicious cycle of fad dieting for 20 years!
I would go to the bookstore (back in the day when there were bookstores!) as soon as the latest and greatest diet book came out.
I remember walking into the store SO FULL OF HOPE that this WILL BE THE ANSWER I WAS LOOKING FOR.
The problem was, I lacked support and guidance to make their program work for ME. I was lucky if I could stick to ANY diet for longer than a week!
Needless to say that I became TOTALLY FED UP with my lack of progress.
Food was controlling me and I knew I needed help.
After feeling very down and defeated…I decided to give in and get some help by joining a local weight loss program that stressed COMMUNITY and COMMON SENSE. I felt very at home and I lost 22 pounds and got to goal. Yay!
BUT, there was something missing.
My weight loss was excruciatingly SLOW and I never achieved my personal goal.
Fast forward 7 years, I had been helping people lose weight on this very same plan but, something didn’t feel right for me.
The more I helped people along their journey the more I realized that something in my body was different. I just didn’t know what it was. Other people just seem to have an easier time losing weight and, for me, it was a struggle. I cannot blame the plan; it was my body that was fighting the weight loss.
SO, I decided to TAKE ACTION and got the education I needed TO HELP MYSELF
WHAT I LEARNED HAS TOTALLY INCREASED MY CONFIDENCE THAT:
- I CAN achieve sustainable weight loss AND GET TO MY PERSONAL GOAL!
- I HAVE THE SKILLS to get back on plan after a slip-up. Like any human on this planet I have bad moments, sometimes even bad days! (GULP) I have eaten at restaurants with friends and consumed breads and desserts and have gotten back to my fighting weight within 24 hours.
- I HAVE DISCOVERED THAT TRAVEL IS POSSIBLE AND ENJOYABLE ON (AND SOMETIME OFF) PLAN. Even after traveling for 4 weeks I have maintained my weight within 2 pounds.
- I know what MY BODY RESPONDS TO and have used the low carb/ketogenic framework as a basis for understanding my own personal level of carbohydrate tolerance.
I’ve taken all this confusing information and drilled it down to simple habits & lifestyle choices so I now get the RESULTS I DESERVE.
29 POUNDS and I feel more energetic than ever before, clear headed (screw menopause) and I can easily pass up tempting foods (unless I CHOOSE a treat and eat with INTENTION).
Most of all, it’s given me the confidence that I can do it while traveling, attending social events or right in my own kitchen!
HERE’S THE BEST PART:

How to get MORE FAT
You read that right! This is the biggest challenge for newbies and we will spend LOTS of time talking FAT so your food is delicious and contains enough fat to help you reach your goals. No eating sticks of butter here (unless you want to of course!).
Emotional Eating. UGH
It happens to all of us and is very common. In this unit we will explore the reasons for emotional eating and have an in depth discussion about why we do this and how to rewire your brain so you can get past this common hurdle.
Avoiding the Deprivation Dilemma
Hey, it’s natural to want treats or to crave comfort foods. We all relate! This discussion will leave you full of ideas to customize YOUR program so that you can ditch deprivation and stay consistent.

Yes, it’s possible to live your abundant life and stay on a keto diet! We will explore these topics along with maintenance and how to move forward beyond weight loss. YOU NEED A LIFE and I am here to help!
“… I really thought it was easy and reset my taste buds…I ate very well on the plan! I have lost my cravings for sweets. Afternoon snacks are now veggies and hummus, yogurt with cinnamon, hard-boiled eggs and nuts-that kind of thing. It was very easy to ignore the cake offered by my friends. Having my hot tea with me helped! Thanks for the tips…I don’t know if it’s connected but my hot flashes have stopped during the day and cut in half at night. I feel very good and plan to keep paying attention to the foods that keep me feeling this way! Thanks so much.”
