Why Smart Weight Management?
Why diets, pills & fitness fads won’t work – and a new, psychological approach to weight loss that will!
Have you or your clients tried again and again to lose weight? The pills, the diets, the meal replacements; positive thinking, exercise machines and gruelling workouts? Have you succeeded for a short time, only to find that you put the weight right back on? Are you tired of beating yourself up about your body? Are you tired of making your life so much about weight loss? If so, this workshop is for you.
The ‘Smart Weight Management’ workshop is a unique, powerful, one-day program for well-being and weight loss. And unlike all the other weight loss approaches out there, we have good scientific evidence that our program works
The ‘Smart Weight Management’ workshop will reveal the problems with most popular weight loss programs. And it will shatter many popular myths, such as in order to lose weight you need to think positively, or count every calorie. It will show you why fad diets inevitably fail in the long term, and why even the most sensible of diets can easily backfire if you approach it in the wrong mindset. And most importantly of all, you’ll discover what you can do to create a richer, fuller life - right here, right now – instead of waiting until the day you’ve reached your ideal weight or body size.
We show you how to apply Weight Management principles to others by learning how to apply them to yourselves.
