Weight Release Program

Healing Our Relationship to Food

  • The Cost of Being Overweight

    Being significantly overweight predisposes a person to heart disease, diabetes, cancer, and a shortened lifespan, and also diminishes the quality of life for the individuals and their families. It can also impair cognitive function and memory, and cause joint pain, arthritis and a loss of mobility. But we have the ability to change all of that.

  • Learn to change Habits with this Course

    We can’t really change our body, lose weight and keep it off without addressing the psychological/mental or emotional issues that underlie our eating behaviors. We can retrain ourselves and change behaviors once we understand why we eat what we do. And be consistent in replacing one type of food or habit with another healthy one.

  • More than a Diet Release Weight Forever

    This course provides you with tools to make permanent changes after identifying what causes us to overeat. This program is different as we address very personal patterns that have emerged/developed from childhood. Often the dynamics of our family’s eating habits influence us for the rest of our lives. Until we recognize and decide to make a change once and for all.
