The Never-Diet-Again Path to Your Authentic Weight
Frequently Asked Questions:
You may be thinking:
I'm already too busy"
You'll ﬁnd that this is easier and less stressful than worrying about what you're eating or feeling bad about your body! You're also encouraged to download the mp3 audios and listen wherever and whenever it’s convenient.
"I’ve given up on weight-loss programs, I’m so discouraged!"
Then you’re actually in the perfect place to begin! One of the hardest things for people to give up is the false hope and false promises of dieting. You’re already there, which means you may begin to experience positive results sooner than others will.
"Will it work for me – what if I’m different?"
Everyone is different -- and unique. By learning to appreciate and listen to your own unique body, you’ll discover what works for you and what doesn’t. Our bodies were designed to regulate our food intake— not our brains—and isn’t it time to listen to yours?
"My doctor says I need to lose a lot of weight right away"
The goal is a healthier you, right? Well, regaining the weight after dieting is even more unhealthy than not doing anything at all. And remember, 40% of people who diet end up heavier than before--that’s deﬁnitely not what the doctor ordered! A gradual, long-lasting weight loss is the healthiest alternative. And, the AIM style of eating leads to better “numbers” with or without weight loss. It’s a better, safer, course of action. Your doctor may not be aware of how ineffective diets are in the long run. (Contact me if you need research links to send him or her.)
"I think I’m a compulsive eater."
Did you know that dieting can make you compulsive about food? It’s a natural reaction to calorie restriction. Studies show that otherwise normal people begin to exhibit all kinds of strange and compulsive behaviors when they go on diets. Then those behaviors become habits that are hard to break. (We’ll learn more about this early in the program.) AIM Eating will help quiet those impulses and give you back the power to say “yes” or “no” to eating.
"I’m afraid I’m not self-disciplined enough—I seem to have no will power!"
This doesn’t take will power—you’re not ﬁghting anything! It takes some attention in the beginning, as you become more conscious of when and why you eat, and whether or not you’re satisﬁed. Mostly what’s needed is curiosity: the more you check in with yourself, the more successful you’ll be.
"It sounds too good to be true."
Yes, it does, but consider this: There are millions of normal-weight people in the world who eat this way naturally, without even being conscious of it. Now is your chance to become one of them!
"Everyone says the key to losing weight is eating the right foods, how can you say I can eat the foods I really want?"
You can gain weight eating the “right” foods too — anything in excess is unhealthy! Too much focus on what you eat, excluding or adding certain foods, leads to cravings that are hard to handle. It’s much more effective to start with getting your energy intake into a state of balance. Then, once you’re stable, you can gradually adjust what you eat.
"What if I’m diabetic?"
If you’re “pre-diabetic”, then this program can probably help slow or even reverse the situation. Research has shown that when you eat in tune with your body’s signals it helps even out blood-sugar levels, reducing dangerous highs and lows. If you’ve been diagnosed with diabetes, however, it means your body over-reacts to certain foods, and you’ll have to avoid those until your health improves and you have your doctor’s permission to eat them again. You can still work with these eating principles and learn habits and techniques that will help you lessen cravings and emotional eating to improve your health and weight. It’s deﬁnitely possible to succeed at this even if you have food restrictions!
"It sounds great but how can I afford it?"
There are two payment options, including a monthly plan, and long-term weight loss and weight stability will save you money on diets and weight-related healthcare for the rest of your life. But, the real question is: "Are you ready to invest in yourself?" This is your chance to commit to the future you want: Comfortable in your body, Confident in yourself, Trusting yourself around food, Enjoying everything you eat--without guilt, free of shame and self-blame.
