Losing weight sounds so easy. You just eat less, eat better, move more.
There are a million food plans and even more "experts" out there, happy to tell and sell their latest ideas on how to get healthy, lose weight, and feel fab. And let's not forget your friends and family members...they always know the newest BEST thing you should be doing and how you should be doing it, right?
So why does it feel so frickin' hard for you? Why do you keep "self-sabotaging"? Why can't you figure this out?
I'll tell you why:
It doesn't matter how much you know about food and weight and health: if you are fighting your biology, you are going to struggle. This is NOT your first rodeo. You already know more than you ever should about the macros and micros in every cookie and cake on the shelf. #nothelping
You are smart, hardworking, committed and determined....but you can't be successful at THIS because you don't know the rules of the game. When you been given faulty information about your body, weight, and health you can work as hard as you want with NO results. Sound familiar?
Worse than that, the harder you try, the worse things tend to get. You eat Kale all day, only to find yourself hording Twizzlers all night. Come on, I know you have. Working hard at THIS just leaves you more disconnected from your body, more confused and unsure. You forget what hunger and full really feel like and how food can energize and satisfy...when you aren't feeling so guilty about it.
If you're reading this, you already know it in your bones: If the "expert" information and those conventional ideas and strategies were going to work for you, they would have.
You know there has to be another way. A missing link. Information you haven't yet found. A REASON why you can't stick with the plans and why your body won't co-operate.
You're ready to get off this hamster wheel of negative behaviour around food, negative thoughts about your body, and yo-yoing weight.
You want peace. Freedom. To eat like a normal, unobsessed human being again.
Here's how I'm going to get you there:
1. Re-educate you re: health, weight, human biology and physiology. Don't worry! It's not nearly as boring as it sounds! and it's important to understand how our bodies work, digest, metabolize, gain and lose weight. We operate under so many false assumptions...we need to start over in this area and get clear on what is really happening in that body of yours.
2. Take an in-depth look at eating psychology and diet culture. You need to understand the very NORMAL, UNDERSTANDABLE reasons you behave in negative and self-destructive ways around food. And then! We're going to equip you with the tools you need to to do things differently.
3. Develop a new way to define authentic health FOR YOU, based on gentle nutrition and intuitive eating.
No more compulsive, negative, behaviours around food, so you can move through your day with peace and ease, confident in all your food choices.
No more body hate, so you can wear the clothes you want, swim with your kids, enjoy sex, dance, play, LIVE!
No more compare and despair, so you can enjoy the beauty of other women, develop strong female relationships, celebrate the success of others and build a community of "girls girls" who support and encourage each other.
No more self-doubt, so you can move boldly through the world, knowing that you have all the answers within you to make good decisions for yourself and your family.
No more punitive exercise, so you can choose movement that feels juicy and amazing in your body. Movement you look forward to and prioritize without effort. Imagine?
No more dieting! So you can eat wherever, whenever without constant weight and health worries. Joy!
You could keep going it alone. Reading the books, asking friends, starting every Monday with a new plan.....but why? You don't have to do this alone. I can help.
"I didn’t realize how much thought and energy I had been putting into food, what to eat, what not to eat, how many things could I eat, when could I eat, when couldn’t I eat, what was good for me (as told to me by everyone else), what wasn’t (also told to me by strangers who weren’t living my life). I would often find myself “trying to be healthy”. It would last 4 days and then I would have three very horrible days, where I would eat everything I could find and finish it all, because on Monday, I was going to start over and I wouldn’t want all those cookies (or ice cream or licorice, etc) to go to waste. Next week I would figure it out. I would eat completely clean and be a “good” person. Monday would be different!
My aha moment came about a month into seeing Jillian. I started thinking about what new trick I would try to make it all easy this time and how things would be better on Monday, when I remembered I wasn’t doing this anymore. I was going to live in the moment, eat what I wanted to eat, not what everyone else thought I should eat or what I thought I should be treating myself with. Each time I ate I would ask myself, did I want this? If I didn’t I didn’t have to eat it. If I did I could dig right in, no guilt, no thinking about changing things on Monday. I didn’t need to fill my brain with this anymore. I could fill it with better and more fun things to plan for, I could reward myself with treats I really wanted (pedicures, new t-shirt, sleeping in, warm baths, a good book, etc) not with food." -Cara C.

Jill, I just wanted to tell you that EVERYTHING you said at your workshop on Body Love resonated with me. The steps made sense and were very easy to implement right away. The workshop forum allowed me to listen, absorb and reflect, which I really appreciated. I'd never really given much thought to diet culture and body shaming marketing before attending. It was such a different, and real approach to teaching body acceptance and love. You are so good at your delivery and your message is so important tokeeping spreading. - Martha V.

I have been in the health & nutrition world for a LONG time and I've tried conventional and alternative approaches to weight management that have left me (and my patients) frustrated and stuck. The work I do with women is new and unconventional and it is definitely not easy.....but please believe me when I say - No other work you will ever do will leave you healthier or happier.
"I started working with Jillian in March of 2016 after realizing my years of depression rooted in my inability to love myself as I am.
I had been dieting off and on for over 10 years, and was finally ready to move on, but needed some guidance. Jillian became the person I could be accountable to until I learned to trust myself again. The process was definitely messy as she would say, but it was the discomfort I had to feel before I could learn to really listen to my body and ditch dieting for good!
I no longer have the guilt or the shame I felt after eating something I wanted. I no longer obsess about my weight. I'm just happy! Finally! I have been spreading the word, and praising Jill's program to all the women I know, because it truly saved me. I am grateful every day for the Find Food Freedom and Love your Body method!"
