Help people lose weight without dieting, by putting their health first!
Sure you want to help people lose weight without diet "ing", but more importantly, you want them to get healthy and keep the weight off forever, right?
Otherwise, what's the point? No one wants their weight loss to JUST be temporary (and the last thing they want is to become unhealthy in the process)!
The 'calories in and calories out' theory of weight loss is so basic and oversimplified. Even a 12 year old child could write up diet and exercise plan that is based on nothing more than exercise and restriction. Diets are a dime a dozen and the old adage "just eat less and move more", ain't cutting it anymore. Even average folks with no training in nutrition at all are starting to get that there is more to the story.
After decades of the diet cycle - initial weight loss, followed by more weight gain than ever - people are just done with it already!
In fact, the pendulum has swung in the other direction. Losing weight feels futile. People are giving up and just accepting their fat. I don't blame them. It's the health and fitness experts themselves who don't know a thing about micro-nutrient deficiencies, body system imbalances, weight loss physiology or the hormonal basis of obesity, that c0ntinue to perpetuate the idea that fat people just eat too much and exercise too little!
Is it any wonder then, that people who are overweight have given up, when even the so-called experts don't even know anything more than the calorie theory of weight loss? How crazy is it that the experts are using an approach that statistically only has a 3% success rate, without any follow up to see if that small percentage of people who actually lost weight, kept it off? It's all insane really.
- Calorie counting is completely unnatural
- It's time consuming and too much work (unless you like being preoccupied with food and obsessed with the scale)
- Diets are designed to be done temporarily to get people to a goal that they want permanently (how insane, what are they going to do with the diet is done?).
- Average folk who are not fitness fanatics can't stick to an exercise regime for long. Most won't even start one let alone make it part of their lifestyle forever.
- What's worse is that the ones that many are willing exercise like crazy, but it doesn't even help them lose weight, never mind keep it off.
- Then there are those dreaded plateaus - it's super challenging to get people past them - logistically and emotionally.
- People have no idea how to permanently adopt changes that normalize their weight because in their mind it means a life of permanent deprivation.
- People want quick fixes and instant results without being willing to change themselves or take massive action.
- They chronically quit every time it gets hard, instead of rising up to overcome the obstacles in their way.
- They have dieting ADD and are constantly looking for another new shinier diet that they think will be easier (or faster).
- Far too many people are mentally lazy (they just want to be told what to do and don't want study and learn).
- Some are stubborn and bull headed and have completely bought into the calorie theory and refuse to open their minds to anything else.
- Many people simply won't prioritize their health.
- For some it's an issue of not wanting to 'rock the boat' with their partner, family and friends who scoff their new diet and lifestyle choices (it's peer pressure) or even actively try to sabotage their efforts
- Many people have deeper health problems that need to be addressed
Clearly simply 'counting calories and exercising' is not the solution, but do you know what to do instead?
Sadly, people think that there is something wrong with them - either they internalize it believing that they are defective in some way - they believe that they just don't have enough self-discipline or that their body is broken somehow (especially when they see people who around them stay thin despite eating whatever they want and not exercising at all).
HMMMMMmmmmm....who's been telling them that?!!!
We HAVE to stop making it about eating less and moving more!
Being overweight is not a cause, it is an effect. We have to expand your focus beyond diet and exercise to get to the root cause of people's struggles with their weight. It's time to ask deeper questions!

Weight Loss Blocks Assessment
Learn how to identify your client's body system imbalances and use food as medicine to eliminate their weight loss resistance.
People don't need self-discipline or willpower to lose weight naturally without dieting. The reason why is because healthy balanced meals and proper supplementation changes what they desire to eat (it changes their instincts around food). When people are diet"ing" and forcing themselves to exercise, they use the word "cheat" because internally they have to make themselves eat or move in certain ways that are contrary to their primal desires and they are starting to run out of willpower.
As a Delish Certified Natural Weight Loss Coaches our clients don't have to worry about "cheating", because not only is their body craving healthy food now, but the new value systems we teach them call them to higher standard. They will never go back to eating processed and refined foods. The healthier they get, the more they have an aversion to overeating and to eating unhealthy foods. The healthier they get, the less they have to fight with themselves!

The Delish Diet is not a Method, it is a Proven Physiological 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. If they don't get instant results or a quick fix they go into victim mode - and either blame the diet or themselves. They swear the 'method' doesn't work or they turn the blame inward - 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. What clients don't realize is that there is no one size fits all approach to weight loss and that weight loss has been way over-simplified by the notion of "eat less, move more".
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.
They need to understand how their body works in order to trust it to release the weight in it's own timing - health first, weight release second.
This is what we do with the Delish Diet, we impart health 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 diets 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 using symptomatology to achieve body systems balance, the hormonal basis of obesity and the science of weight loss physiology.
Here is how it works....
Step 1: Embody Natural
Learn how to teach others how to 'set it and forget it' in their kitchen to put the nutrition foundation in place that underlies health.
Step 2: Learn Hormones
Know the hormonal basis of obesity inside and out so that you can re-educate your clients minds with what actually works long term.
Step 3: Deep Nutrition Wisdom
Learn the symptoms that specifically point to nutrient deficiencies, so that you can give personalized recommendations
Step 4: Get your Client Un-Blocked
Learn how to identify your client's body system imbalances and use our done for you protocols to bring balance back.
The Delish Diet is based on the best of the best science based understanding of the hormonal basis of obesity and weight loss physiology.
You will learn how to debunk the 'eat less, move more' approach of calorie counting, deprivation and 'dieting' and how to de-program your client's mindset from the diet mentality and weight loss obsession to health and healing consciousness.
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 - which of course reinforces and perpetuates the diet rollercoaster. Clients don't realize that the diets they've done were never designed for permanent results in the first place. You have to literally de-construct their thinking and de-program their paradigm to help them drop the diet mentality. You will learn how to do this by learning how to help clients assume responsibility for their health (and therefore their weight) - and you'll know the hormonal basis of obesity and other related practical aspects of weight loss physiology - inside out.
The Delish Diet isn't really a diet in the conventional sense, it is aligned with the natural diet of the human species, embracing a natural lifestyle (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 healthful habits.
With the Delish Diet approach we teach health consciousness, address the clients need for pleasure and assess their unique weight loss blocks for a personalized and holistic approach to optimizing their health - and as a good side effect of that, they lose weight permanently.
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 body system imbalances, which we call physiological weight loss blocks.
Weight loss blocks can also be: educational, environmental, emotional, 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 their health problems, it is an EFFECT of them. Your clients will have to do both 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 excels 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 permanently), they will discover that healthy food not only tastes better than artificial food products, but they are way more decadent, delicious and satisfying too!
You can offer your client the best most fitting advice available on the planet, but they simply won't do the work if they are super stressed out, their mindset is misaligned or they don't have the tools at their fingertips to make good on your advice.
