Interactive, Emotional Eating Tool™ Evidence

Did you know that a large majority of us (including our children,) eat out of stress, boredom, anxiety, loneliness or frustration? We believe, a weight loss program cannot be 100% successful if you don’t address the emotional reasons behind overeating. For this reason, we created an “interactive emotional eating app” that allows you to become more aware of when, where, and why you eat, along with positive strategies to change it.

One-On-One & Family Counseling

In this day and age where everything is computerized, we believe that people still want and need a personal touch, now more than ever. Statistics show that people are far more successful when they have a coach or accountability partner. We can send you a package in the mail and talk to you Via teleconference if you’d like, but we pride ourselves on offering you a place to go and a face to connect with when you get there. Guess we’re a little old fashioned!

Maintenance Plan

Let’s face it, you’ve probably lost weight before, but if you’re interested in this program, then you may have gained it back, Right? Hopefully not, but that’s why we consider maintenance the most important part of our program. During your weight loss phase we will be teaching you the skills you and your family need to stay healthy. for life!
