167- UnDiet 2019: How to Get Results: 5 Obstacles to Avoid

How to get results All of us have goals. Goals like getting married or maybe having children. Taking the next step up in our career or for some, having more energy. Making more money and losing weight are the top two goals people set in their lives... especially, new year’s resolution. Some women go on to achieve their goal and others don’t. Why? To be honest, it has nothing to do with your capacity as much as your mindset. Your ability to have an honest discussion with yourself and...

165-Body Acceptance: The Must-Have to Make Peace with Food

164-Holiday Survival Guide

Holiday Survival Guide Surviving the holidays can be tough. Thriving in the holiday nearly impossible for some. Perhaps the holiday period is causing you more anxiety than pleasure.

163-Smart Women Don’t Diet... and What They Do Instead

Why Diets Don’t Work Smart women don’t diet... they do THIS instead. After 27 years of dieting, I’m clear on one thing… diets don’t work. 91% of all women are unhappy about their body and resort to dieting. We think that a “thin” body is going to unlock our happiness, our acceptance, our joy. And 95% of all dieters regain their all weight within 1-5 years. Yet we keep dieting. We keep hating our body. We keep judging ourselves for our inability to be in freaking control… yet...


162-All or Nothing Mindset Trap

Do you say things like “I’m on track”, “I’m having a good or bad day” and the ultimate “on and off the wagon”? Absolutist thinking is one of the most common denominators in our Going Beyond The Food community. It’s the source of many emotional eating loops, overeating weekends and restricted food binges. The truth is the all or nothing mindset is a negative thought process also known as cognitive distortion. Everything- from food to your views of yourself to professional life– is divided...

160-Practicing the Basics

One superstar student of the current semester of the Going Beyond The Food Academy is seeing so much results in a short 4-week period that she feels the duty to share our method with people in her life that need it. She wanted to know if we have an episode of the podcast she could share with people that would encapsulate our approach and what to do to get started... we didn’t have one. Well, that’s not true.

154-How to Stop Binging Cycles

Binging is defined as a period, usually short, of excess something. In the case of binge eating, it’s excess eating. It's usually done alone and or hidden from our environment. My approach, as always, is based on taking responsibility. It’s an empowering model of transformation. The solution is within us.

153-The Solution to Food Addiction

Food addiction is a very sensitive subject... and let’s say very controversial. It’s one of these subjects that get people very polarized. It’s either one way or the other. I used to see addiction, food addiction being one of the possible addictions, as this black or white subject. For instance, sugar is addictive and should be avoided for the rest of my life. All forms of sugar were dangerous... like viciously dangerous. But then I evolved... I opened myself to different viewpoints....

151-How Much Is the Desire to Control Your Food & Weight Really Costing You?

How much is the desire to control your food costing you I’ve decided to write and speak about this topic of “Cost” after a lot of reflection.
