What is the Anti-diet programme?

Diets do not work.  They may help you lose weight for the short-term but are not sustainable - who wants to count calories or points for the rest of their life?  Also, with fad diets, as soon as you start eating normally, the weight piles back on and even more.  It is much safer losing weight slowly.  Why don't you just change the way you normally eat?  Makes sense, right?

Everyone is different so it makes sense that a programme should be tailored to an individual rather than a 'one size fits all'.  If I just fed you information, you may or may not read it, and you possibly won't relate to it.  If you do the work, if you work out why you do what you do and why you can't do what you want to do, then you can work out a way forward.  This would work better, right?  This programme will only work if you do the work each week and dig deep into your own personality/life.


How does it work?

Once a month for 6 months we will talk on zoom.  We will discuss your progress, answer any questions you have and talk about one of the below topics (the below is just a programme example as everyone is different and what works for one person may not work for another).  The topics are only suggestions and the programme is client led.  Each week we will correspond through email (I will send you a worksheet and you send it back) to measure your progress, behaviour and results.  This will help with accountability.

How much does it cost?

One hour zoom call per month for 6 months, plus email access each week to me during the month, costs £300.00 (works out to £50 per month).
