End the Diet War: Transform Your Relationship with Food and Your Body
Will this be the year that you finally throw in the towel and quit dieting? Will it be the year that you stop spending time and money on diet books, supplements and solutions to a problem that just doesn’t seem to go away? Will it be the year that you stop waiting to be thin and start living your life the way you’ve always dreamed?
We sure hope so!
Let’s face it. What you’re doing hasn’t worked. It’s not working now. And it will probably never work! It’s not supposed to work. If the one magic bullet that could easily make everyone thin came out tomorrow it would be the end of a billion dollar weight loss industry. And then what would all those diet pushing folks do?
There’s got to be a different path
Dieting and deprivation don’t work. Neither does eating everything in sight. In fact, it’s all a poor substitute for what we’re really after when we sit down to those cookies, fries, donuts, (insert your own favorite comfort food here.) We’ve mixed up food with something else that’s missing in our lives and no amount of stuffing our faces will fill up our longing.
For many busy women, our world is full of stress and chaos. We feel burned out, run down, like we’re just going through the (e)motions. We wonder how long we’ll have to be lonely, overwhelmed, bored, tired, anxious, and stressed out. Often, when those emotions get the better of us, we turn to food.
The way out is the way you came in
You have to back yourself out of this one. Food is not going to make it better. In fact, the only way out is to recognize what role food is really playing in your life and find a way to meet those needs better. To make this a little trickier, we unconsciously picked these strategies so long ago that they pretty much run on autopilot. Even the conscious mind noticing them is not enough to get us out of those tired, old patterns. It takes a guide to get you out.
We declare the war over
We’re so tired of watching the women (and men) in our lives worn down by this tedious battle against the body that we’ve decided to declare THE WAR IS OVER! The war against your body, your emotions, and food has only left you weary and wounded. And in this time of peace, we would like to offer you a way of loving your body and enjoying your life.
So what do you do in a time of peace?
Kristin Hoppe, BS, NC and Dr. Scott Mills, Ph.D. have joined forces to create a day long workshop for busy professional women to connect to what’s really going on in their relationship to food and to their bodies. This is an intimate experience for only 15 women to gather and use the powerful tools that Kristin and Scott have been developing over the years to help women create powerful, lasting change around their relationship to food and their bodies. We combine Kristin’s deep understanding of the struggles that women face with emotional eating with the powerful belief shifting work that Scott has done with people all over North America.
We’ve both helped many, many women lose weight and feel better in their bodies and we haven’t done it through dieting. In fact, we encourage you to throw out every diet book on your shelf and decide that you are the expert on your own body. Who knows it better than you do!
This work may not be for you
This workshop is designed for women who want to fundamentally change their relationship to food and their bodies. This can actually be a scary process. It will ask you to rethink who you are and how you are living.
Who will you be when you are not obsessed with your food choices? Who will you be when food can just be food rather than an emotional stand in? Who will you be when you can love your body exactly how it is in every moment?
We recommend that you be committed to a process of growth and self-discovery to join us in this process. We suggest that you be in search of lasting change rather than magic bullets. (Without a war, who really needs bullets anyway?)
