Become a Delish Certified Holistic Weight Loss Practitioner
Learn a whole life approach to help people lose weight without dieting by getting healthy first!
Sure you want your clients to lose weight, but more importantly, you want them to keep it off right?
It's easy to lose weight temporarily, but it's hard to keep it off permanently. That's both frustrating for you - and for your clients. The old adage "eat less and move more" just isn't cutting it anymore.
- Calorie counting is too much work, unsustainable and only works temporarily.
- They can't stick to an exercise regime, won't even start one or worse, they exercise like crazy, but it isn't helping.
- Those dreaded plateaus - you don't know how to get people past them - logistically and emotionally.
- They want quick fixes and instant results without being willing to take massive action.
- They chronically quit every time is gets hard, instead of overcoming the obstacles in their way.
- They have dieting ADD and are constantly looking for another new shinier diet that they think will be easier.
Stop making it about eating less and moving more.
Being overweight is not a cause, it is an effect. You must expand your focus beyond diet and exercise to get to the root cause of your clients struggles with their weight.
The following are the 3 keys to permanent weight loss that you must learn, embody and master to help people lose weight without dieting.
De-brainwash and debunk the myths with knowledge in weight loss physiology.
Take the focus off what the scale says and instead focus on optimal health.
Identify it, address it and eliminate it. Go way beyond stress management.
Change Lives by Helping 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.
- Too often you feel like you don't have enough content prepared, aren't 'doing' enough and question the value of your services.
- You feel disorganized and overwhelmed preparing for your client sessions - and that is exhausting.
- You really want to help people transform their health using their desire to lose weight as a catalyst for life transformation.
- 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.
- 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 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.

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) . What clients don't realize is that there is no one size fits all approach to weight loss and permanent weight loss has been way over-simplifed by the notion of calorie counting and exercise.
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. Ask powerful questions that get to the root cause of their resistance, struggles and obstacles.
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 (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. You will learn how to do this by learning the hormonal basis of obesity and weight loss physiology inside out.
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.
With the Delish Diet approach we teach health consciousness, weight loss physiology, 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 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.
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.
12 coaching exercises at your fingertips to help your client get to the root cause of their behaviour blocks - mental, emotional and spiritual.
12 done-for-you accountability sessions with pre-session assignments and homework designed to get your client implementing. Take your client from insight into action!
12 practices to get your client out of the fight/flight/freeze mode of chronic stress and instead get organized and finally feel on top of it all (in life and in the kitchen)!
You could spend years studying, creating content and building a business all by your lonesome or you can join the 'lose weight without dieting' movement and start helping people who are struggling with their weight now!
