Sustainable weight loss.
Losing weight is one accomplishment. Keeping the weight off is another.
Ninety-five percent of people who go on a diet will regain the weight they’ve lost within one to five years. I am committed to ensuring that my clients are not part of that statistic. The Food Coach® mission is to guide you towards a way of eating and nourishing yourself that you can practice for the rest of your life.
If you are tired of being out of control, if you want to create a healthy relationship with food and your body, if you are determined to get past the emotional and stress eating, then you have to go beyond standard diets and exercise regimens. You need a balanced approach that includes both physiology and behaviour.

Talk with me. I’ve been where you are. During the mid-eighties, in three months, I lost the extra twenty pounds that I had carried since my early teens using the principles that I share with my clients. I have sustained my ideal weight since then by weaving the tools and techniques that are most powerful for me into my daily life. I have also honed my profession over the years by continually developing my clinical and coaching skills to bring a unique blend of science and the art to losing weight sustainably.
Here’s the stuff you need to know about how it works:
The coach-client relationship is a unique and powerful one for producing results. When you make the decision to commit to The Food Coach® process, you are committing to learning new strategies, moving past the obstacles, and staying accountable to your success. Although there is a model of transformation that has been borne from experience, the process is adapted for you, for your particular challenges, needs and lifestyle.
We begin with a 2-hour live Foundation Session (or by Skype if you’re at a distance from Toronto) and follow with 30-60 minute live, phone or skype sessions, one per week, four per month. (These can be adjusted to account for time away and your personal needs.) Whatever you need to change your relationship with food and to establish strong self-care patterns, I’ll work with you to make that happen. The atmosphere is completely non-judgmental, unconditionally supportive, relaxed and always focused on moving you towards your weekly and long-term goals. There is more than a bit of magic that happens in this process. Clients are always transformed from the inside out.
Look to making a minimum 3-month commitment. That is enough time to create a solid foundation for change. However please keep in mind that you have spent years, decades even, establishing habits that don’t serve your health nor weight. It will take more than three months to engrain new healthy patterns that will keep you on the path for rest of your life. Three months will be more than enough for you to know you’re going in the right direction. The following threeto nine months will be to deepen your knowing and strengthen your positive patterns.
Before you make any commitments, we will have a live, skype or phone conversation to determine if 1) this is the right program for you and 2) I am the right coach. You can have all your questions answered at that time. This conversation is free, so don’t hesitate to call!
