Imagine being reimbursed $800 for shedding 17 percent of your weight.

This is precisely the aim of my new 6-month online group health coaching program running January through June 2019, designed to help you transform your relationship with food.

And while I’m looking for ten people who have weight to lose, it really isn’t about the weight. It’s about feeling free in your body and at peace in your mind.

This program is designed to address the root cause of why you eat (the wrong foods!) when you’re not hungry, so we’ll be diving deep into the mucky terrain of emotions, belief systems, body image, shame and forgiveness -- as well as the practical nuances of what to eat for optimal health and why. 

Warning: If you’re looking for a quick fix, I am NOT your gal.

Here’s how you’ll know if joining this program is right for you*:

  • You’ve wasted years in food prison struggling with cravings, emotional eating, or food/sugar addiction.
  • You understand that eating from the veggie tray makes you feel better than eating from the dessert tray, but you can’t seem to get yourself to do it. OR you do it for a while but revert to stress eating when life gets busy, causing you to believe there’s something wrong with you or that you don’t have what it takes.
  • You’ve tried All. The. Diets. and while you know you can lose weight temporarily, it always finds you again -- especially in the most stubborn places, like around your mid-section. OR you’ve been steadily gaining weight for years no matter how well you eat or how much exercise you do.
  • You feel utterly disconnected from your body and have no idea what it wants or needs from you in order to feel well.
  • You fear what could happen if you continue down this road – anything from a chronic disease diagnosis to the feeling that you’ve missed out on your life.

*You must be Canadian, at least 18 years of age, and have 17 percent of your body weight to safely lose.

I believe eating should be simple. If we’re courageous enough to listen, our bodies know exactly what, when and how much to eat as well as how to heal themselves. A fundamental part of what I do is empowering people to develop a healthy relationship with food and break free from food prison.

I struggled to lose weight no matter how much cardio I did (who gains weight training for a half marathon?). It was incredibly frustrating to be that dedicated to my health and fitness and settle for such mediocre results. As a university educated woman and athlete, it didn’t match my identity or make any logical sense. Carolyn helped me critically evaluate many of my long-held beliefs about food (does eating fat really make me fat?) and empowered me to get “real food” onto my plate. After only 2.5 weeks, my weight dropped, my skin cleared up, and my PMS symptoms disappeared. But when my kryptonite food — potato chips — started to taste like cardboard, that’s when I really knew it was working! Five years later, I still love the way I look, feel and perform, but as a working mom of hungry twins, my biggest challenge still remains making time for meal planning and batch cooking.

I used to be an emotional eater, using food to reward myself in happy times and to self-soothe in times of stress. As an educated and health-conscious woman, I couldn’t understand why I would sabotage my own efforts at a healthy lifestyle. I thought something was wrong with me! Carolyn helped me recognize that my mind is not always my friend. She empowered me to disengage from the negative self-talk that I had grown so accustomed to, and to really own my worth. The ERFA approach is profoundly personal and captures all of the important aspects of a healthy lifestyle, beyond simply weight loss. This is the lifestyle journey I’m committed to, and my ongoing work is around modelling healthy habits (eat, move, sleep, play, gratitude, self-care) for my children.

I struggled with a lifelong pattern of binge eating as a way to cope with painful emotions and it not only led to feelings of shame, but also high cholesterol and weight gain. Despite a 25+ year relationship with Weight Watchers I had never once reached my goal weight, and my sense was that it never addressed the root cause of my emotional eating. Knowing that Carolyn could relate personally to these challenges helped me feel less alone and allowed me to open up without worrying about being judged. Real food and regular exercise helped to regulate my appetite, improve my sleep, bring my cholesterol back to normal (yeah, no medication!), and release weight. I am still working with Carolyn on the root causes of my overeating and breaking up with the scale!

Following major abdominal surgery, I had lost my strength and vitality — not to mention a ridiculous amount of weight. I joined ERFA to heal my gut, reduce inflammation, and learn how to trust my body again. (I was sick of giving away my power to the bathroom scale!) I loved how the focus was on health and abundance. When I began planning meals around colourful, nutrient-rich salads and soups, as well as cooking vegetables and meat in new and tasty ways, my gut felt good, my bloating subsided, and my strength started to return. I even resumed running and built up to a half marathon race in 2016 at the age of 64! I love how I feel when I eat this way and find it easy to do at home, but my ongoing challenge is to commit to clean choices when I’m out of my own environment.
