For example, you can call yourself a 'Weight Loss Mentor' or an 'UN-Diet Coach' (or whatever feels more in alignment for you).

Help People Lose Weight Without Dieting
People think they have to lose weight to get healthy, but we know it works the other way around. They need to get healthy to lose weight. There are far too many half truths floating out there and frankly a lot of B.S. You want to help change the cultural paradigm about what it takes to lose weight and yet......
- While most of your clients have weight loss as a top goal, you have gaps in your knowledge of weight loss physiology.
- You don't have resources for them that you are confident will work.
- You feel disorganized and overwhelmed preparing for your client sessions - and that is exhausting.
- Too often you feel like you don't have enough content prepared, aren't 'doing' enough and question the value of your services.
- You really want to help people transform their health using their desire to lose weight as a catalyst
- Your clients need a lot of education to reprogram their false beliefs and you don't have the time (or desire) to spend months creating resources, hand outs & trainings
- You worry that you don't know enough, feel unprepared or don't know how to coach a client to a breakthrough when they get stuck.
- You want a done-for-you weight loss coaching system, so that you can focus more time on your clients and less time doing behind the scenes 'business' stuff.
Have a Step-by-Step System to Follow
You just want to work with people. You don't want to spend forever trying to find answers for your client's weight woes, you don't want to have to design your own signature system, create all the hand outs, trainings or business and marketing systems. You just want to show up confident that you have the knowledge, resources and coaching skills to get your clients to their goals.
Feel confident in your knowledge and in your ability to coach your clients to a breakthrough.
Have systems in your business that keep operations running professionally and smoothly (on autopilot).
Show up for your clients excited, feeling ready and knowing exactly how to flow the session.
The Delish Diet is not a Method, it is a Proven Approach With Practical Principles and a Strong Philosophical Edge
A lot of people say they just want to be told what to do and they will do it. But actually they won't do what you tell them, just because you told them (believe me I know, I have been in the natural health field for 23 years)! The reason why is because knowledge is the precursor to experience. When people don't know why they are doing what they are doing, the minute they come up against an obstacle or hit a plateau, they give up. In their mind, if they don't get instant results or a quick fix they go into victum mode - and either blame the diet or themselves. They swear the 'method' doesn't work or they turn the blame towards themselves - convinced that there is something wrong with their personality because they can't stick to it....or assume that their body is defective in some way because it doesn't respond immediately) . In my experience few people are physically lazy, in fact most people would rather exercise than study. The real issue is mental laziness. People who are not willing to accept that permanent weight loss requires a permanent diet and lifestyle change - who won't take the time to learn basic weight loss physiology and adopt a health conscious mindset - are not ready for the kind of health tranformation it requires to lose weight permanently.
What clients don't often see is that their weight issues are the result of a health imbalance. They need to stop handing their health over to experts and start taking responsibility for healing themselves. This is what we do with the Delish Diet, we impart knowledge, give specific guidelines to implement that knowledge and show them how to embody eating and living health consciously for life.
The Delish Diet is not a one size fits all approach. We don't teach a 'method' for people to blindly follow, and then go back to their old ways after they have achieved the goal (let's be honest, that's what conventional dieters do!). Instead, we teach practical principles that give context to creating a intuitive and personalized approach to attaining and maintaining one's ideal weight, based on the art of symptomatology and the science of weight loss physiology.
Here is how it works....
Step 1: Learn Practical Weight Loss Physiology
Understand people's physiological blocks to weight loss, so that you can offer strategies that are targeted to their uniqueness. Learn how to use the Delish Diet Weight Loss Blocks Assessment and done for you healing protocols with step-by-step plans to match.
Step 2: Learn how to embody that knowledge into practice.
It's all done for you. Recipes, menus, hand-outs, checklists, templates, infographics and trainings for your clients to educate themselves. No more incessantly repeating yourself or slaving away in between sessions working without getting paid.
Step 3: Coach others to breakthroughs
Teaching your clients what to do is great, but your clients have to do the work to get results. Learn how to coach your clients to breakthroughs in any areas where they are stuck. Hold the space for their transformation while asking powerful questions that get to the root cause of their resistance, struggles and obstacles. Clients need more than education, they need to create a new experience to embody what they learn.
The Delish Diet is based on the best of the best science based understanding of the hormonal basis of obesity and weight loss physiology.
That means that the content will continue to expand, be upgraded and even change as our knowledge of human physiology advances. With on-going yearly continuing education master classes you will always confidently be up on the latest science.
There a lots of myths out there about weight loss. It is really confusing to your clients. You are going to need to master understanding the application, limitations and half truths of the 'calories in and calories' out theory of weight loss. You need to be able to confidently educate your clients about why the 'eat less, move more' approach does not work for permanent weight loss - especially since they probably have personal experience with it working temporarily (they don't realize that the diets they've done were never designed for permanent results). You have to literally de-construct their thinking and de-program their 'yo yo dieting' mentality. Finally, you need to master understanding macros. You need to be able to explain why protein helps people lose weight, why fat doesn't make them fat and how sugar does. That will be your primary focus in year 1. It's everything you need to know to be a weight loss consultant and an accountability coach. Don't worry if you don't have a backround in nutrition. You will learn the fundamentals of practical nutrition in our online learning centre.
For those of you seeking to be an expert in the field, there is an advanced certification available that happens in year 2. In year 2 you will master the hormonal basis of obesity. You will understand hormones in depth, including, but not limited to: human growth hormone, leptin, ghrehlin, estogen, progesterone, testosterone, DHEA, M-tor, peptide YY, amylin, cholecystokinin and more! You will master knowing how to heal and seal the gut, detoxification, cleansing, mitochondrial function & energy metabolism. Learn the art of symptomotology in it's application to weight loss - inside and out! You will learn how to assess people's physiological weight loss blocks and give them personalized and targeted stratgies for overcoming them. You'll love learning about how to help your client get past weight loss plateaus with macro-cycling, keto, fasting, autophagy and more!
The Delish Diet isn't really a diet in the conventional sense, it is based on a natural diet for humans in a natural environment (with some delightful modern conveniences, of course)!
Losing weight is simple, it's the causes that are complex.
When people can't lose weight, they are working with the wrong strategy. Conventional diets based on eating less and moving more are designed for short term results. In the long term they deprive people of nutrition and slow down their metabolism. People who don’t plan to do their current strategy for weight loss forever, are kidding themselves that they can ever lose weight and keep it off. It sounds harsh, but it's true. As soon as they quit working the strategy, it quits working for them. There is only one core strategy people need to lose weight and that is to return to their natural human diet, habitat and habits.
Have you noticed that wild animals have a diet, but don't go on a diet? Wild animals are never overweight because they don't eat or live unnaturally for their species. When people can't seem to get themselves to do what is natural as a human mammal (because they've lost touch with their instincts) - then what is standing in their way are what I call weight loss blocks. Weight loss blocks can be any 1 or more of the following: physiological, educational, environmental, emotional, hormonal, mindset, relational, socio-economic and addiction issues etc. It is time now for people to stop ‘dieting’ and deal with the actual root causes of their weight gain. We help them do that. Being overweight is NOT the cause of health problems, it is an EFFECT of them. Your clients will have to do both the inner and outer work to get permanent results.For their results to be maintainable, how they eat to lose weight MUST be more pleasurable than how they ate to gain it (the Delish Diet approach excells at this)!. Once they stop eating processed foods (and yes, they are going to have to accept that they are going to have to do that), they will discover that healthy food not only tastes better than artifical food products, but they are way more decadent and satisfying. Any diet 'worth it's shirt' must teach people how to replace their vices and how to turn sinfully delicious treats into angelic alternatives that are as good as (or better) than the food they currently can't imagine giving up! If the diet that gets them skinny isn’t more pleasurable than the diet that gets them fat, well then we all know what’s going to happen. Their willpower will run out and they'll go back to those old defaults habits that got them fat in the first place.
