Dump Your Diet! Lose weight & go from chaos to confidence

Have you wasted too much time and energy jumping on and off your "diet", only to feel perpetually guilty and shameful over your food choices?

Are you tired of hiding behind leggings and tunics? Do you get out of breath at the park with your kids? Tired of cutting calories and fighting hunger all day with no success to show for it? Cutting calories alone won't work for very long. The 4 pillars of my fueling formula system will help you ditch body shame, fuel your metabolism with the right foods for your changing hormones, change unhealthy habits for good and lose weight. You’ll feel in control of your food and your body. You’ll break out of the guilt cycle of food choices and finally, make peace with food. I’m a Registered Dietitian with over 15 years of practice -- 13 of which have been in private practice helping people make long-term changes in their habits, fuel their bodies with real food, and learn how to exercise appropriately for their body.

Have you ever felt...

  • Frustrated that your body doesn't respond they way it used to ("When I dieted in my 20's, I'd lose weight in a week!)

  • Guilt after eating a "forbidden" food

  • Unsure how to eat when you're stressed

  • Unsure if you're eating the right foods for your body

Now, imagine feeling:

  • Confident in your clothes (like, wearing all the good stuff that you've been saving in your closet)

  • Confident in your decisions to pick out food for yourself and your family

  • Content in your food choices; no more guilt

  • Supported by a group of women that understand your struggle

  • Disciplined that you stuck to a plan you developed

  • More energy and mental clarity

  • Proud to make time for yourself without saying, "I'm sorry"

  • Strong enough that your kids won't outrun you at the park

  • Brave enough that you can go out to eat anywhere with anyone and know you have food freedom

You can do it!

Here's how my proven formula works

    The Ditch the Diet 9 week course was a great way for me to reset some pretty unhealthy ways of thinking, especially when starting a new year. My New Year's Resolutions are almost always weight-loss inspired, which lead to restrictive dieting that does not ever yield to long term success. Theresa's program has encouraged mindful healthy eating habits. The course was broken down into small topics that gave me time to read and understand how being health successful is more than just about what I eat. The small group settings allowed for an easy way to communicate our successes and missteps from the week informally. The small group setting and Theresa's support made staying accountable easy. I have seen not only results in the way my clothes fit but also in my relationships with food. I can't wait to continue my journey with Theresa.
