I know...you’ve been down this road before.  You’ve lost weight but gained it back and then some.  Your confidence and motivation have taken a hit with each relapse.  So what makes this different? It begins by clean sweeping your life to make room for change and exploring why you are here. My approach is to quickly set in motion a cascade of positive feedback loops so that you may experience success upfront. This will deepen your commitment and accelerate your results.

Weight loss is about growing not shrinking.  Growing in awareness, wisdom, skills and tapping into the fundamental laws and principles of human nature.  Leveraging them to create a healthy and fulfilling life. Growing healthy relationships, learning to trust ourselves and expanding as an inspirational being so others may gain the courage and commitment to heal themselves.  Sustainable weight loss is about every part of your being. It is not about a number on a scale. Clear the obstacles in one’s life, establish a strong life purpose and everything else will follow.

The medical field has it backwards. It has haphazardly tried to encourage a healthy lifestyle without taking into consideration what is currently most paramount to the individual. This lack of sensitivity is like trying force a zebra to eat beefsteak. It neglects the personal context in which someone is presently existing. It fails to address the relentless emotional, financial, career, family and relationship challenges faced by the individual. These forces combined with lack of strong life purpose, isolation, erosion of traditional support structures and pervasiveness of “Big Food,” make it highly improbable the individual can breakthrough to a better life.

Of all the things I’ve done as a medical doctor, coaching sustainable weight loss has been the most rewarding.  It’s taken many years to develop my unique approach of Life / Life Purpose coaching combined with science based lifestyle changes. You will not feel hungry or deprived.  Once you have a taste of your true self you won’t crave things that destroy you.
