When Being Skinny is Not A Big Motivator

F92C98A0-0ACD-4A30-9C1F-B2081C715B3A

What do you focus on when you know you need to lose weight, but ‘being skinny’ is not a big motivator?

We help women lose weight without dieting, by putting their health first.

No counting calories or macros, no deprivation, bars, shakes or diet pills - and without giving up the rich, sweet creamy comfort foods they love - exercise is optional.

Might sound too good to be true, but this IS how it works.

If you HAD to do all ‘the things’ normally associated with losing weight to lose weight, y…

What WE do & what YOU do to lose weight.

D05F9286-021E-49D2-A0DA-5C75F91E2E4B

WHAT WE DO:

We help people let go of the weight without dieting or giving up the rich, sweet creamy comfort foods they love.

While that sounds like the antithesis to weight loss, it’s not.

The truth is, virtually any food one desires can be made in a way that supports their intention to improve their health and lose weight simultaneously.

It all begins with simply converting crappy ingredients into their natural whole food counterparts.

How to create your own "diet"

photo-1618392167319-93237a84325d

The problem with 'diets'. besides the fact that they are designed for temporary results, is that they are:

  1. one size fits all
  2. they don't address the root causes of being overweight in the first place 
  3. they lead to rebound weight gain (most often, more weight than you started the diet with)

Yes, you want to lose weight permanently, but you think you have to deprive yourself of delicious food and push yourself to exercise - and neither of those things is really that inspiring. You think to …

She has hope about her weight again.

DO YOU EVER LOSE HOPE THAT YOU CAN EVER FEEL GOOD ABOUT YOUR BODY AGAIN?

If you find yourself at a loss and overwhelmed by nutrition claims and counterclaims, you are not alone.

It's no wonder, when most of what you've been sold about health and weight loss is designed to keep you sick and fat (think quick fixes, suppressing symptoms and ignoring true causes).

Half of what we are told will make us healthy, eventually turns out to be unhealthy.

The th…

Planning to see a nutritionist about your weight? WAIT!

If someone gives you a weight loss plan based on nothing more than calorie restriction and exercise - you should run the other way!

Ask yourself this - what self respecting nutritionist would knowingly perpetuate nutrient deficiencies and the health imbalances that make weight loss next to impossible in the first place?

"Dieting" is NOT a solution for weight loss!

It’s a temporary quick fix that makes your nutritionist look good at first, but then you are both left frustrated …

Why "diets" don't work long term.

diets don't work

I get it, you might be feeling dread about another "diet" (the 'delish' approach is not a "diet" in the conventional sense). 

When statistics show that 95%-97% dieters fail why even bother? 

That's a good question and I hear you.

Diets don't work for anyone (other than for the dieting industry because they perpetuate the very problem they profess to solve).

Here's why?

  1. They are by design for short term results (you weren't planning to live the rest of your life at the gym or starving your…

The 3 diet formulas "they" insist you follow, that are doomed to fail.

At the ripe old age of 36 I almost decided to settle on being obese for the rest of my life.

Why? Because I was sure that I was already doing everything right.

I thought if a health nut with two holistic nutrition certifications, who had been eating a natural whole foods lacto-veg diet since she was 20 years old could end up obese, well then there was no hope in hell for anyone.

I fell into victim mode, then futility and finally almost settled for staying overweight.

When I looked around me,…

Diet books I actually recommend.

weight loss books

There are very few diet books that I can recommend because few are based in wisdom or the natural diet of the human species.

The knowledge you need is out there, but you need to learn from people who put your health first.

Here are my top 5 favourite books that will get you pointed in the right direction so that you can create your own weight loss plan based on the hormonal basis of obesity and weight loss physiology.

1. The Gabriel Method by Jon Gabriel

2. The Calorie Myth by Jonathan Bailo…

Is your weight set point an issue?

Screen Shot 2021-03-29 at 4.57.19 PM

Your body weight set point refers to a specifc level of body fat that your body automatically works to maintain regardless of the quantity of calories you consume or 'try' to burn off via exercise.

This set point is why it's hard to lose weight. It's because the rest of your body's physiological functions are set to match that weight. When you lose weight, your whole body has to adjust and it takes time and consistent effort to change your body's homeostasis.

Here's how else you can make $ as a student.

Wondering how else you can start making money right away, so that you can earn while you learn?

With most certifications you have to wait until you are certified until you can start working with clients. This means that you have months or years without income returned on your investment. 

That is not the case when you become a Delish Diet Certified Practitioner.

Not to mention, without clinical experience, most nutritionists lack confidence because they didn't get any experience.
