I work with wonderful individuals – probably a lot like you – with a deep desire to transform their eating and their bodies – but struggling to find the right path. After winning my battle with severe emotional eating and obesity, losing 130 lbs and discovering true self-love, I’ve committed my life to helping others do the same. Because I want you to know, that living freely and confidently inside a healthy body – is possible for anyone. Yes, I’m talking to you! Personally, I lived the yo-yo weight and food obsession for nearly 30 years before breaking free. So I have seen and felt first hand, how myths and shame, manic dieting, intense workout routines, doctors and detoxes all succeed in keeping amazing people like you and me from ever reaching our most cherished goals. And THAT’S why I used my training and background in psychology, coaching and eating transformation to develop a system that actually works. The F2E2 method. NO shame. NO guilt. NO diet. NO confusion. NO BS.
Emotional eating is basically the “wrong diet” for the hunger of our hearts. Let’s call it malnutrition of emotional needs. Food is our best friend and our worst enemy. It’s like the worst best friend you ever had. And she’s ALWAYS there for you. Unfortunately. It’s the experience of losing control when it comes to eating. What and how much we eat. And feeling powerless about it. It’s that battle we just can’t seem win in the long run. We eat in secret and thoughts about food, our bodies and our weight take up a lot of our daily lives.
Battling our bodies and our weight for years is the rule – rather than the exception – as well as believing our challenges are a matter of lack of willpower and self-control. Guess what? It never was. So, if you have repeatedly struggled with your eating and trying to lose weight – then you’ve come to the right place!
When I let go of my old patterns and willingly stepped into my new self – miracles happened.
I ended up with a stable weight loss of 130 lbs.
My physical appearance is changed completely. My body is grateful. My soul flourishes and I wake up with feelings of deep, deep gratitude.
I wake up to the life that’s been expecting me.
I throw my scale away. I buy clothes in “regular” stores. I put on my bikini with a big smile. I moisturize my body with lotion as I step out of the shower, to show it how grateful I am for all of the years it has persevered and carried me – all of the years where I’ve hated and tortured it. I fucking love it. I really do.
Love from others accompanies my self-love and the man of my dreams appears in my life. And for the first time, ever, I experience how a romantic relationship can be beautiful. Without anxiety, without control, without deceit and self-deception. He accepts me, contains me and adds joy, respect and love to my life every day.
And I, too, give that to myself and to my loved ones.
Now, this is where it gets even more interesting for you: Based on my lifelong battle and experience with emotional eating (alongside my knowledge from studying psychology, recovery coaching and addiction treatment) I went on to develop a 5-step method to treat emotional eating. This method has turned out to be somewhat revolutionary in this field, as very few people work in this way.
The results are overwhelming.
Lasting weight loss. Emotional freedom. Love. Physical and mental healthiness.
It is my mission that all of those that struggle with emotional eating know that it’s possible to get a fantastic life without compulsive eating and hating your body.
