Seriously. If you’re a woman who has grown up in Western culture, you’ve been bombarded with a lifetime of messages that being thin and looking pretty are essential if you want love, success and happiness.
Well, that’s a complete load of crap. It’s a horrible commentary on our screwed up system of values and messaging from the media.

If you really want to stop wasting so much of your time, energy and mental real estate obsessing about how you look and about every bite you put in your mouth, the Weight Loss for Foodies group coaching program can teach you how to eat the way naturally thin people do so you can actually enjoy the foods you love without guilt or fear, while losing your desire to overeat along with your excess weight.

I'm passionate about helping foodies learn how to drop their excess weight for good without dieting. I help you discover what is really causing your weight problem (it isn't that you love food!), and teach you how to enjoy the foods you love while permanently losing your desire to overeat. I'd love to teach my method to you! I’m also a gourmet cook and baker who struggled with my weight for 40 years before discovering the secret of how to stop emotional eating and overeating. I am a certified life coach, arbitrator and mediator, and I live on the coast of Maine.
