Break the frustrating cycle of 
doing well for a while...only to 
sabotage it all - again!

Discover a proven brain-based system that actually reprograms and rewires your relationship with food - for good!

Does any of this sound familiar?

  • You want to eat better. You know you feel better when you do.
  • You want to lose weight and be able to keep it off for longer than a few weeks or months.
  • You want to feel in control where food becomes a non-issue - simply a tool to fuel and nourish your body.
  • ​And you want to be immune to emotional eating, stress eating or the lure of "comfort" foods.

BUT, despite your best intentions, you keep falling into the same old bad habits over and over again:

  • Eating junk at night because you "deserve" it;
  • Turning to "comfort" foods when you're stressed, tired or sad; 
  • Using food as a reward;
  • ​Mindless snacking (did I just eat that whole bag of chips?!?!);
  • ​Eating because you're bored.

You KNOW that another diet isn’t the answer
(you’ve tried them all)
But you don’t know what to do to get yourself on track consistently with the healthy lifestyle you really want.

Here’s what I want you to know before we go one step further…


YOU’VE TRIED EVERYTHING - The reason that none of it's worked so far is because you've been led to believe that you just need to find the willpower to stay on track (how's that strategy working?).

DOING IT CONSISTENTLY FEELS IMPOSSIBLE - Because you've been missing some big pieces of the puzzle! You must get your brain on the same page so you can stay on track CONSISTENTLY and enjoy the healthy lifestyle that you truly want!

YOU’VE BEEN SET UP TO FAIL - It's not that you're weak or lack willpower. You’ve been given bad advice; advice that has you working AGAINST your brain’s natural wiring, (a recipe for failure).

BUT GUESS WHAT THE GOOD NEWS IS? It absolutely IS possible to take control of this and reprogram and rewire the way you think and feel about food.

You absolutely CAN create an entirely new relationship with food that allows you to lose the weight in a healthy way without feeling deprived or like you’ve lost your security blanket!

So, get ready to completely change the way you think about healthy eating and weight loss.

A unique approach to 
building a brand new relationship with food!


Change Your Brain - Change Your Body (CYB) is an online program and vibrant, supportive community for emotional eaters, stress eaters and "comfort" food addicts.

Our students are people like you who are DONE with dieting and ready to reprogram and rewire their relationship with food, so that they can, not only lose the weight they want, but finally maintain a healthy lifestyle that actually feels amazing and do-able!

But don't just take it from me.
Hear what some of our past students have had to say...

You're going to learn:

  • How to literally reprogram and rewire the old “operating system” in your brain that ultimately determines the choices you’re making around food;
  • ​​How to master powerful practices like meditation, visualization and journaling to start changing those old habits;
  • ​How your thoughts, feelings and food choices are connected and how to finally break those old patterns for good;
  • ​How neurotransmitters like dopamine are working in your brain to create cravings and exactly what you can start doing to outsmart them and take control back;
  • ​What to do with feelings like stress, sadness and boredom without feeling the desire to turn to food;
  • ​​New approaches to self-care that will leave you feeling recharged and energized so that food eventually loses its power over you;
  • ​And so much more...

Does any of this describe you?

  • You’ve hidden food (or evidence of food) from your partner or family because you feel so ashamed of what you’ve eaten.
  • ​​You’ve tried every diet under the sun, but always seem to end up eventually giving in, and winding up right back where you started.
  • ​You do really well all day, only to find yourself in front of the TV binging on the bad stuff at night.
  • Almost as soon as you start to make progress with healthy eating and weight loss, you end up sabotaging yourself and gaining all the weight back.
  • ​When you look at your body in the mirror you hardly recognize the woman staring back at you.
  • ​​You miss feeling good in your favorite clothes and now dread having to look for something to wear. 
  • ​You’ve failed at enough diets to know that there’s something deeper going on here, but you don’t know what it is or how to change it.

If it sounds like I’ve been hiding out in your house (or your fridge),
you’re in the right place!

I know all of this because it’s the “BEFORE” story of pretty much every single one of my students.
It's also exactly where I was once…


I’m a Registered Holistic Nutritionist, but my clients and students like to joke that I’m, “the Nutritionist who never talks about food.”

To explain that, I need to tell you a story that starts about 12 years ago…

I was a busy working mom with two kids under the age of 5 and a husband who had recently quit his job to pursue his dream of becoming a lawyer.

I’d always been interested in health, but when I found myself having to give 100% at work, 100% at home, and also support my husband, taking care of myself went out the window.
I bet you can relate!

My weight crept up. I started to struggle with blood sugar issues and even depression. I was miserable. It felt like I was drowning.

Just like you, I tried EVERYTHING.

Weight Watchers, low-carb, vegan, low-fat, Atkins, low-sugar, South Beach and many others. I did Tae Bo, PX90, ran a 10K and took up yoga. Lots of things worked for a bit, but eventually I’d make excuses, go back to my old ways and the weight would come right back on.

Sounds familiar, right?

I hated the way I looked and I no longer recognized the woman I saw when I looked in the mirror. I felt like a failure. Why couldn’t I get my act together and stay on track?

Eventually, I decided that the problem must be that, because of all the conflicting diet advice out there, I just didn’t know exactly what I should be eating or how much or when.

I’d always been interested in health, so I decided to go back to school part-time to become a Nutritionist. Surely then I would know exactly what I should eat and be able to easily lose the weight and keep it off.

Well, I DID go back to school, and I DID become a Nutritionist.

But…. nothing changed.

I did now know exactly what I should be eating, how much, and when, but I still found myself at the end of every day, on the couch, in front of the TV once everyone else was in bed, stuffing my face with potato chips or M & Ms (or more often both).

To be totally honest, it was humiliating and it was the most hopeless I’d ever felt. I was a Nutritionist for goodness sake! And I still couldn’t get control over what I was putting in my mouth.

What was wrong with me??? Why couldn’t I just do this???

I vividly remember one night, sitting on the couch having just finished another night-time junk food binge. Tears poured down my face and I remember thinking that there must be something I was missing.

How could I know this much about what to eat, and still be making the wrong choices all the time?

A lightbulb went off for me then. Maybe it wasn’t only about the food.

Maybe there was something else going on. Some other piece of the puzzle that would fit between my true desire to do better, and the unhealthy choices I always ended up making that I was missing.

I started searching and it wasn’t long before I was completely fascinated with food psychology and how the brain works when it comes to cravings, willpower and habits.

I traveled around the world on yoga and spiritual retreats, absorbing the principles of mindfulness and meditation.

The tools I learned and applied dramatically transformed, not only my relationship with food, but my life.

My focus shifted away from food itself, instead onto how and why my brain was experiencing the cravings and making the choices it was making around food.

I began to literally rewire and reprogram the way my brain thought about and responded to food.

That’s when everything changed for me.

The food was only PART of the puzzle.
I didn’t find true freedom until I also addressed the
HABITS that were wired in my BRAIN around food,
and the deep EMOTIONAL connections I had with food.

I can’t wait to share with you the missing puzzle pieces that I discovered and I’m so excited to see what lies ahead for you once you put those pieces in place!

Here’s exactly what you’ll learn:

In CYB we take a unique approach to building a brand new relationship with food - rewiring things from the inside out!




How Your Brain Works
(around food)

It’s hard to change something when you don’t fully understand it. To get started you’re going to learn exactly how and why your brain turns to food when you’re stressed, loses all willpower at night and finds it so difficult to stay consistent with healthy eating. Once you understand this, changing it is going to feel like a piece of cake (no pun intended).

We’re going to cover:
  • Understanding the conscious mind and the unconscious mind and how each are playing a role in your cravings;
  • How neural pathways around why and when we eat are formed in the brain and how to break old ones;
  • What "willpower" really looks like in your brain and how to get more of it;
  • ​The key role that dopamine plays in your battle with sugar and emotional eating.

The Power of Visualization & Meditation

From professional athletes to Fortune 500 CEOs, it seems that everyone is now tapping into the power of meditation and visualization. You may have tried one or both with only minimal success. In this module I'm going to teach you exactly how to do both in a way that will work for you!

By the end of this module, you'll be a pro at putting these two powerful practices to work for you with just minutes a day!

We’re going to cover:
  • Meditation 101 (even if you’re a skeptic or have struggled with meditation in the past);
  • Noticing and changing old thought patterns that are sabotaging you;
  • Mastering the powerful practice of visualization to help you tap into strength and motivation you didn’t even know you had!

Reprogramming Your Old Unhealthy Habits

It’s not as clear-cut as just “I love bread,” or, “I have no willpower at night.” Those may be the parts of the iceberg that you see above the water, but there’s a HUGE portion of the puzzle that’s floating below the surface.

By the end of this module, you'll better understand what's driving your current habits came, why your brain clings to them, and how to start to rewire them for good!

We’re going to cover:
  • Habit loops and how to understand them and break them;
  • Negative self talk - how it's affecting your food choices and how to change it;
  • Limiting beliefs that are leading to your own self sabotage and keeping you stuck.

Creating Your New "Operating System"
(around food)

This is where we build on everything you've learned so far and we start literally reprogramming and rewiring the way you brain THINKS about food.
By the end of this module, you'll know exactly what you need to do to break your old habits and patterns and train your brain to think about food very differently.

We’re going to cover:
  • How to change your emotional habits around food (eating for stress, boredom, etc.);
  • Boosting your motivation to stay on track and keeping it consistent;
  • What to do with feelings like stress, sadness and boredom without turning to food.

Routines & Tools to Make it All Work

Learning how to change is one thing, putting it into practice every day is another. In this module you'll learn exactly how to create new routines that will set you up for success each and every day.
By the end of this module, you'll have created your own unique and personal set of tools and routines to make this a real and lasting lifestyle change.

We’re going to cover:
  • A strategy for creating a solid morning routine that will help you stay on track consistently;
  • Five solid tools to use when you're caught in a craving or feeling pressured to veer off track;
  • Tips for dealing with social situations, holidays, travel, etc.


When you understand the neuroscience behind how habits are formed and you have a step-by-step system for breaking old ones and creating new ones, you can easily build a solid foundation of healthy habits that will keep you on track!

We’re going to cover:
  • Exactly which new healthy habit to create first;
  • A sure-fire way to make new habits feel more fun and automatic;
  • The four elements you can tweak to make any habit more consistent;
  • ​A rinse-and-repeat system you can use to make or break any habit you want.

Social Situations/Pressure

It’s great if you can do really well as long as you stay home and never deviate from your routine and never have anyone suggest or offer unhealthy food - but that’s not a realistic (or fun) way to live, is it?

We’re going to cover:
  • Scripts for exactly what to say to “food pushers” that won’t hurt anyone’s feelings;
  • Two fun and incredibly effective tools to use in social situations to help make healthier choices feel easier;
  • How to not feel deprived or like you’re missing out when everyone else is eating differently than you are.

Self-Care & Self-Love

How often do you end up making poor food choices because you're exhausted and feel like you really "deserve" this treat? Our relationship with food is merely a microcosm of our relationship with ourselves.
By the end of this module, you'll have in place a personalized and effective self-care routine that fits your life and prevents you from sabotaging your progress when life gets busy.

We’re going to cover:
  • What true self-care is (it’s not manicures and bubble baths);
  • How to set real boundaries for your health to protect the time you need to recharge so you’re not always turning to food to feel good;
  • How to foster more self-love so that you actually want to only treat your body with love and respect.

After taking Change Your Brain - Change Your Body you’ll be able to…

  • Have discipline and willpower for days, even around the leftover cake in the fridge, or the vacation buffet;
  • Stand in front of the mirror, unable to wipe the grin off your face as you look at yourself in those jeans;
  • Go to a restaurant or party knowing that you’ll easily be able to pick the healthiest option and feel completely satisfied no matter what everyone else is eating;
  • ​Comfortably handle feeling tired, stressed, bored or even sad without reaching for food;
  • Never again feel the need to hide food or feel ashamed of what you’re eating in front of anyone;
  • Never again have to experience the guilt, shame and frustration of feeling like a failure;
  • ​Know that you’re finally in control of the food, rather than the food being in control of you.

Here’s why the CYB approach is different
(and why it’s worked for so many people for so many years):

  • IT TAKES A UNIQUE BRAIN-BASED APPROACH - The reason you struggle to stay on track isn’t just that you like the taste of junky foods. It goes a whole lot deeper than that! In CYB we go under the surface to reprogram your habits and the emotional reasons you use food. We address the ROOT causes and make changes there (that’s why they last)!
  • IT WORKS WITH THE WAY YOUR BRAIN IS ALREADY WIRED - Most diets and weight loss programs set you up to fail by encouraging you to work AGAINST your brain's natural wiring. In CYB we work WITH your brain's natural hard-wiring to get lasting results that feel easier to stick to!
  • IT AVOIDS DEPRIVATION BY FOCUSING ON NUTRIENT-DENSE WHOLE FOODS - Diets and other weight loss programs rely on deprivation, which actually trigger your brain to crave even MORE! In CYB no foods are off limits - we just help you change how much, how often and why you eat them!

This bonus includes the masterclass recording, a transcript in case you're more of a reader than a listener, and a few extra resources to help you break free from this frustrating habit once and for all!

This program is for you if you:

  • Know that there’s more to your struggle with food than just the food itself
  • Are exhausted by constantly worrying and obsessing about what to eat
  • Want to stop feeling like a failure every time you commit to staying on track and end up giving in to your cravings
  • ​Are ready to have a relationship with food that feels easy and that you feel super proud of
  • ​Want to be able to go to a party or out for dinner with friends and simply enjoy the experience instead of fixating on what you should and shouldn’t eat
  • ​Want to have a toolbox of simple, yet powerful, strategies that actually work to curb the carb cravings, stop emotional eating and late-night binging habits

This program is not for you if you:

  • Do not struggle with emotional eating, stress eating or using food for comfort
  • Are happy with your current relationship with food
  • Just want to know how to eat less carbs
  • ​Are looking for another diet or workout plan
  • ​Don’t believe that there’s more to your struggle with food than the food itself
  • ​Aren’t willing to dig deep and get curious about what’s really going on behind your patterns and habits with food to end them for good


When does the program start and how long does it run for?

The program is entirely on demand which means you can start anytime and go through it all at your own pace. You also get lifetime access to the entire program AND the private community. This means you have the flexibility to go through the classes at your own pace and your own schedule. No rush!

When are the live classes?

The live classes are held on Zoom every Monday at 7:30pm EST (New York/Toronto time). They will be approximately an hour long (depending on Q & A). They will all be recorded so you can join me live, or simply watch the recording whenever it's convenient for you.

I've tried so many diets and programs and none of them have ever worked long-term. How will this be any different?

There is one thing that almost every other program misses and that is addressing the root cause of our emotional eating, lack of willpower and bad habits. Other programs focus on WHAT you’re eating and how much, they may even talk a bit about meal planning and self-care. But, almost none of them really go under the surface and uncover WHY you’re eating the way you’re eating and help you do the work necessary to change those underlying factors. It’s like putting a Band-Aid over a splinter without removing the splinter first.

This is not another diet program. I don’t do BandAids. In Change Your Brain – Change Your Body we dig right down to the core root of the habits and behaviors that have been keeping you stuck for years, break them down and reprogram them for good!

I worry that I don't have the strength of willpower to really make these kinds of changes stick. How do you know I'll be able to do this?

There is no willpower required to do this work. All that’s required is a willingness to be open, honest and curious. In fact, the tools and strategies I’m going to teach you are designed to supercharge your willpower.

Once you dig under the surface and learn how to rewire and reprogram your thoughts, beliefs and habits around food – the cravings dissipate, your willpower multiplies and the food part naturally shifts. You can absolutely do this!

I don't need to lose weight. I just want to be able to eat better, feel healthier and more in control around food that I know isn't good for me. Is this program all about weight loss?

The goal of this program is to teach you the tools and strategies you need to transform your relationship with food. For some, their primary goal is weight loss, for others it’s improving the quality of their diet or just getting to a place where they use food for fuel rather than emotional comfort.

This program is about changing your mindset around food so that you can create a healthy, happy relationship with it that makes it easy for you to reach your specific goals.

I want to work on my mindset and emotional eating, but I also really need help understanding what I'm supposed to be eating. Will this program help me with that?

Absolutely. I am a Registered Holistic Nutritionist and we’ll be talking in detail about the program Eating Guidelines which are designed specifically to support women’s health as we age. We’ll be talking about weight loss, hormone health, gut health and keeping your brain healthy!

Also, if you do the full program, you’ll get access to me and my brain inside the private Facebook group to get answers to all your questions about diet, meal planning, supplements and the latest nutrition trends.

I have specific health conditions or dietary requirements that affect the foods I can and can't eat. Will I still be able to do this program?

Yes. The CYB program is focused on showing you how to reprogram your habits and patterns around food - not on any one specific way of eating.

I'm super busy. How much time does this program take?

I'm a busy working mom so I get it! This program is designed to work with your schedule. All of the classes are available on-demand so you can work through them at your exact pace and on your schedule. 

And, you get lifetime access to the whole program so you can always go back and review anything anytime - no ticking time clock.

What is your refund policy?

Because of its digital access, there are no refunds available for this program.
