Are you ready to make a change to your health and weight?
Are you ready to feel better in your body?
Do you know what you "should" be doing but just can't seem to do it?
Have you tried all the diets and programs without success?
You haven't failed on these programs. They have failed you.
The reason that these programs haven't worked is that they teach you the behaviors. They teach you to eat different foods or to do a certain set of exercises. Teaching only behaviors won't work, because you are missing the important stuff that precedes our behavior. Those things are our beliefs, thoughts, and emotions. Until we understand those things, making a sustainable change in our behavior (e.g., eating differently or exercising) isn't likely.
If you've read all the books and tried the programs but your health and weight still aren't where you want them to be, the Health Gains Membership is for you!
This program guides you through the motivation, thought, and beliefs that underlie your unhealthy behaviors. Once you understand that, you can make changes to improve the way you think and feel and then that makes behavior change do-able. Research indicates that we are most likely to improve health and lose weight when we have the knowledge, support, and accountability.
This program provides each of those.
1. Knowledge - Each month we will cover a different health topic. Example topics include:
- exercise and activity
- hobbies and fun
- healthy fats
- hormones and weight
We provide a variety of resources to teach ideas and help you implement them including:
- relevant articles and scientific studies
- book excerpts
- helpful handouts
2. Support - We host TWO LIVE COACHING CALLS per month. These calls are your opportunity to get live coaching. The calls will be led by either Dr. Donahue or Dr. Pashby, and we may invite other experts to join a call from time to time based on participant interest. During these calls, you harness our 25+ years of experience working with clients just like you to help you identify and changes barriers, answer questions specific to your situation, make real changes, and get support from other people just like you. You can join these calls using audio or video.
3. Accountability - During each call, after we've worked through a realistic, logical next step for you, you can commit to taking that next step. We'll follow up with you on the next call to see how it went and brainstorm any barriers you encountered along the way.
The resources and support in this course will help you to make real, lasting changes to improve you health, weight, and mood. We've helped hundreds of people just like you make changes to their health and weight using tools and methods just like this. You can make those changes, too.
