Imagine being able to eat what you love this holiday season without guilt, without going overboard, and without fear of gaining weight…

Picture yourself… feeling satisfied, nourished, free of obsession with what you can or can’t eat, and having all the energy you need for the things that really matter to you. You are present and connected with the people you love, relaxed and laughing at holiday events, savoring all the magical moments of the season. Your taste buds are tickled with delight, you trust and appreciate your body, and you feel soul-fed from the inside out. You are radiant!

But right now, you feel like a crazy person around food, constantly obsessing, agonizing and second guessing yourself around every food choice. You’ve been on this roller coaster for far too long, yet deprivation seems to be your only option, unless you want to eat everything in sight and feel awful come January.

You’ve probably tried saving and scrimping on your calories so that you have the right to eat at holiday parties, only to find yourself out of control with the food you encounter once you get there. You’ve tried making rules about what, when, or how much you are allowed to eat. You’ve sworn off the “bad” foods and vowed to “be good” by only eating the foods sanctioned by the latest magazine article or nutrition expert on TV. Yet time and time again this has led to broken promises and left you feeling guilty and demoralized for your apparent lack of willpower.

You’re not sure how to “have just a little bit” of something you love, because in the past that’s always led to overeating, maybe even a full-blown binge. So you’ve sat on the sidelines at social events, not feeling like you deserve to relax and enjoy what’s being served because you aren’t where you want to be with your body. And if you have indulged, you’ve paid dearly for it by starving or exercising it off the next day. Or maybe you’ve just given up completely, and decided to start over in January with another restrictive diet or juice cleanse. 

  You’ve spent far too many holiday seasons overstuffed with food but starving for true nourishment and joy.

You’re hungry for something more… something that would tickle your taste buds and feed your soul. But deep down you feel embarrassed, ashamed and maybe even envious of others, because as much as you wish you could, you are afraid you just don’t have what it takes to be able to eat normally.

I know how it feels. For over 20 years, I lived in a self-imposed prison of food rules and restrictions. I was afraid to eat. I was afraid of food, especially foods like pumpkin pie or pizza, because I bought into the toxic nutritional belief that food on my plate (especially carbs or fat on my plate) equaled fat on my body. And fat on my body meant that I was unattractive, unhealthy and even unlovable.

I tried so hard to be “in control” of food and my appetite, and exhausted myself both physically and emotionally trying maintain the illusion of control by trying to achieve the perfect body.  But all along I had a shameful little secret. When the holiday party was over, I’d often rifle my way through the leftovers, devouring all of the decadent treats that I considered off limits and that I had been resisting or denying myself all day or evening. I lived with a chronic obsession around food, fear of gaining weight, and a relentless rollercoaster of rules and restrictions, until I couldn’t take it anymore and would plummet into a full-blown binge.

The next morning I’d awake feeling bloated, guilty and ashamed and I’d swear to “be good.” I’d skip breakfast or lunch, and set up new food rules for the day. Or I’d drag myself to the gym and punish myself for the crime of eating.

And yet, inevitably, I’d be right back to square one the next time I was faced with food – which during the holiday season was a LOT! 

I was distracted by the constant obsession around food and my body. I certainly wasn’t present to the moment, or to the people in my life. And to be honest it worked pretty well – the truth is I wanted to be distracted – I didn’t WANT to deal with the difficult emotions that lay under the surface or the things it’s hard to be with this time of year – money stress, tension with family members, feelings of loneliness and comparison, and reminders that my life wasn’t living up to many of the dreams I had for myself. It was easier to look in the mirror and criticize my body, or to occupy my mind with food rules and calorie counting.

What I didn’t realize back then was that the very act of restricting and depriving was actually keeping me locked in this cycle. And it’s the same trap that so many other women stay stuck in because they don’t have the information or the support they need to find the escape hatch.

It’s not your fault if you’ve been trying to do everything “right” when it comes to diet and exercise, and yet you are still struggling with unwanted weight or eating habits.

You see, the REAL reason most people struggle, especially during the holiday season, has NOTHING to do with the food. And the way through this is different than you’d expect:

  • It’s NOT about forbidding or depriving yourself of the foods you truly enjoy
  • It’s NOT about eating less (and less, and less and less) and exercising more to force your body into a certain shape
  • It’s NOT about finding or adhering to the perfect diet
  • And it’s NOT because you are weak or lack willpower

Thankfully, I was introduced to valuable and POWERFUL concepts that radically altered the way I was approaching food and my body, and they can also profoundly impact YOUR relationship with food and your body as well. In fact, they are so powerful and needed that I decided to make them my life’s work!

Once I personally discovered how to work WITH my body rather than against it, how to clear my mind of toxic dietary beliefs, and once I learned how to reconnect with my inner nutritionist, that’s when I finally achieved a new freedom with food, AND a body that feels amazing.  And it has worked for my clients, too.

“I didn’t overeat on Thanksgiving, not even a little bit!”

The biggest breakthroughs for me have been finding pleasure again with food, and discovering the art of Awareness!  And I’m not being so hard on myself, I’m learning to start to really see the person I am, both on the inside and the outside. Taking the time to ask myself how I feel, what I want, what I need, and really prioritizing my responsibilities before taking on more is really helping me to feel more relaxed and nourished. For the first time in years I didn’t overeat on Thanksgiving, not even a little bit all weekend!

– Julianne

Today I truly do eat what I want. I no longer fear food, and I know how to partner with my body so that I can eat and enjoy foods I love without guilt or retribution. And I can proudly and gratefully say that after years of bingeing, restricting, and numbing myself through the holidays (and through life), my last several years have been the most balanced, nourishing and fulfilling ever.

Looking back, what I really wanted and needed was:

  • Factual, complete information about nutrition and metabolism
  • A pro-active plan with daily strategies and practices that felt expansive and nourishing rather than constricting and limiting
  • To be able to truly relax and enjoy whatever tickles my fancy from the holiday buffet, or to savor a beautifully decorated holiday cookie without guilt or fear of losing control
  • Inspiration to stay connected to my highest vision for the holiday season
  • Someone to talk to, and a blanket of support to help me get through so I didn’t use food as a coping mechanism
  • To feel radiant, alive and nourished, and to start the New Year feeling vibrant and empowered (rather than defeated, demoralized and in “Damage Control” mode from a pattern of overeating.)
I needed a radically different approach, and I’m guessing you do too.

That’s why I have created this transformative program:

 

LEFH 500

I want to emphasize that this program is NOT about dieting, weight loss, restricting or body shame.

This program is designed to help you release the ghosts of holiday seasons past, and to rewrite your holiday eating story from one of restriction, guilt and shame to one of permission, pleasure, and soul-level nourishment.

It’s designed to help you create a transformation around your relationship with food that will last the whole year round.

“I’m enjoying food without guilt or judgement!”

I’ve noticed that I am thinking about food differently. I’m much more aware of what I am eating, and I am choosing to eat food that fuels me rather than just grabbing what’s quick and easy. Plus, I am allowing myself to choose foods that give me pleasure, and thoroughly enjoying them without guilt or judgement. As a result I am feel more in tune with my body and actually find myself eating less. I feel as though I have taken off a restrictive corset of guilt and ‘shoulds’, and I’m finally allowing myself to be amazing!

Yvette, Age 39

“I have so much more joy around food in my life and I feel better in my clothes!”

Before working with Michelle, every day was a struggle. I agonized over every decision about what to eat and how much. I was so embarrassed about my eating and I would secretly devour sweets, and binge on foods that I craved. To make up for my indulgences, I drove myself to exercise or shamed myself when I didn’t. 

I have now stopped binge eating and eating in response to anxiety! Michelle helped me learn how to trust myself and my body, which allowed me to let go of the judgement around what foods are healthy or not. It has allowed me to enjoy food again, and realize what my body is truly needing in the moment. Sometimes this is chocolate, but not always ;). I can now give myself what I truly need and let go of forcing food to fill those gaps in my life. 

I have so much more joy around food in my life and I feel better in my clothes. But what really surprised me was the incredible shift in my self-esteem. I also recognized that many of my food cravings are in response to a desire for connection and purpose on this earth, so I chose to continue working with Michelle to further explore and embrace a life where I can live my purpose.

I am so thankful to Michelle for her sharing her wonderful gifts with me and nurturing me through this healing process! 

Laura
Age 35

“I’m on a great new path!”

I’m feeling more energy and staying tuned in to my body, resulting in healthier choices and a greater sense of permission and satisfaction with food. The work I did with Michelle has helped me integrate my recent cleanse and set me on a great new path. I’m also happy to report that I can now fit into 3 pairs of pants that were too small for me a year ago…and that feels really great!

Julie, age 54

“My clothes fit better and I feel lighter!”

I’ve become aware of just how much damage my negative self-talk has done. Now I’m letting go of old ideas, beliefs and ‘stuff’ that just don’t fit in my life. I am no longer obsessing about food, my clothes fit better, I feel lighter, and I’m enjoying meals with ALL 5 senses, and the sensuality of the food. I could go on and on, this has really been a fun and exciting journey of re-learning for me.  THANK YOU Michelle!!!

Tami, age 50

What makes this program different?

“If you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you’ve always gotten.”

This program is unlike other weight or appetite management programs, primarily for what it’s NOT:

It’s NOT about meal plans, limited food choices or cutting out foods you love

It’s NOT about counting calories, fat grams, carbs, points, pounds or inches

It’s NOT about rules. In fact, the only rule is that there are NO RULES!

It’s NOT about stressful exercise or forcing your body into a certain shape

It’s NOT about what to eat; it’s about how to eat (when you know how to eat you’ll find you can eat anything you want!)

It’s NOT even about losing weight – it’s about GAINING LIFE!

It’s about making room for possibility, permission and pleasure. It’s about providing you with the missing link – the rest of the story around nutrition and nourishment of your soul!

 

“It’s a lot more natural and a lot less work!”

This is not a program where “these are the rules.” I’m being tasked with figuring out what actually will work for me and that’s pretty cool. It’s a lot easier to get excited about it, rather than feeling restricted. It’s crazy because it’s a lot more natural and actually a lot less work!

I have had a lot of personal growth from being part of this! I’ve been more gentle with myself and I’m allowing myself to relax. I’m celebrating my power to choose and focusing on empowering myself, and that I can choose to indulge in things without feeling guilty.

Plus, not worrying so much about food or how to fix myself is making room for me to just BE myself. I’m allowing myself to be happy, and it’s a lot less stressful! It really helps to have a coach in this way who knows about this. It is personal stuff, and trying to do it on your own is not actually as supportive as being able to do it and share it. It’s a good thing and it’s helped to keep me on task.

– Susan

This program is for you if…
  • You struggle with holiday overeating or weight gain year after year
  • You have been working hard on your health & fitness goals, but are dreading the holidays because you just know it is going to set you back
  • You find that the added temptation and stress of the season triggers your unwanted patterns such as binge or emotional eating
  • You beat yourself up for not being “good,” and fall into the cycle of overindulging and restricting
  • You punish yourself with hard-core dieting and exercising in January
  • Your own self-care comes dead last on the holiday priority list, and as a result you often feel depleted and cranky
  • You are hungry for true and lasting freedom with food and are ready for a new approach

This program may not be right for you if:

  • You are looking for a quick weight loss fix
  • You are looking for someone to tell you what to eat
  • You aren’t willing to invest a few hours (on your own schedule) in yourself and your overall nourishment this holiday season

Ultimately, this program is about giving you a LASTING, sustainable solution to your food and body challenges, and about giving you the tools to create a relationship with food that truly nourishes you and that is unique to you!

Plus, you’ll receive my guidance and support, and benefit from all the knowledge, wisdom and compassion I’ve accumulated through working with my private clients and through my own journey with food. AND you’ll have the support of other women in the program on a daily basis through our private Facebook Group, helping you stay inspired, uplifted and accountable to your goals.

One thing I want you to consider is how much it’s costing you to stay stuck in old patterns.

How much money, time and precious life energy have you wasted on the same old weight and appetite control strategies that don’t work? Because your health, happiness and purpose are on the line here. And I wouldn’t be serving you if I failed to bring this to your attention right now.

If you’ve been tolerating dieting & deprivation, rules & restriction, and punishing exercise without achieving the results you want; if you’ve been carrying extra weight, unwanted cravings or eating habits; if you’ve spent countless Januarys in a state of damage control and depression… how long are you going to wait to break this cycle?

I invite you to let me help you shift into an experience of possibility, permission and pleasure, and where you feel peaceful and powerful in relation to food, your body and your LIFE!

 The most important gift you give this season may be the one you give to yourself. 
   


When you join by midnight November 15th, 2015

“I’m not letting food take over my life anymore!”

Before I started working with Michelle, I was thinking about food way too much, feeling critical of my body, and pushing myself to the point of exhaustion with exercise I didn’t really enjoy… All this effort and I wasn’t losing the weight I wanted to.

Now I’m more relaxed about food and exercise, I’m letting go of all the stress and rules, and I am aware of how to approach food. I am the one who decides, and I am not letting it take over my life anymore! Before our work together, I believed that if I wasn’t always doing something or exercising every day that I was lazy. Michelle helped me see that slowing down and taking time to nourish myself actually supports my metabolism AND gives me more peace and balance in my life. By prioritizing my wellbeing, I feel like life is lightening up, and I am lightening up! This has been a wonderful experience. I now know that I have the ability and power to make my life and my relationship with food and my body the way I want it to be. Thank you so much, Michelle, for leading me on my journey of self-discovery.  I will forever be grateful.

– JoAnn, Age 68
