Change unhealthy eating habits by understanding and changing the driving forces behind them

Start With Why

The relationships we have with food, ourselves and our bodies are formed through the thoughts, beliefs, habits, and behaviors that are unconsciously developed over the course of our lives.

And those are the things that drive the way we eat.

That's why you stay stuck repeating the same patterns with food month after month, year after year. That's why you feel like nothing ever works - because nothing you've tried has shown you how to undercover why you're eating the way you're eating and how to change it.

Cognitive eating combines a wide range of scientifically proven effective modalities to change those things because when you do, everything changes. Forever.

When you change why you eat, what and how you eat changes on its own


The CE framework combines these powerful, scientifically proven modalities into an easy-to-follow step-by-step process that helps you understand why the food, weight & body image struggles exist, how they're contributing to self-destructive & self-sabotaging behavior patterns and most importantly, how to change it all.

The way you eat, think, feel and even the choices you make, naturally begin to shift in the most beautiful (and significantly healthier) ways, as a result.

That's why it's unlike anything else you've done.

That's why it works when nothing else does.

How is it really different?

A quick comparison of principles

Traditional Dieting/Lifestyle Changes
  • Unsustainable with strict, rigid rules & restrictions
  • Most predictable indicator of future weight gain and worse overall mental and physical health outcomes
  • Only focused on externals - what you have to eat now (even if it means being miserable) to maybe look different later 
  • Eat what and when someone else tells you you're allowed -- judgement, guilt, shame ever present
  • Destroys self-trust & self-esteem, & your ability to hear or care about your needs
  • Creates patterns of thinking, feeling & behaving that fuels self-destructive eating, overeating or binge eating
  • Fuels your negative internal dialogue & destroys your relationship with yourself & even your mental health
  • Does nothing to help manage emotional eating, probably even makes it worse
  • Dis-empowering - keeps you reliant on trying to force yourself to follow other people's rules about what's best for you & your body
  • Contributes to feelings of depression, anxiety and shame
Cognitive Eating
  • Completely sustainable because there are no rules & nothing to "stick to". It teaches you retrain your brain and changes it forever.

  • Incorporates modalities proven effective for improving physical, mental and emotional health & well-being

  • Focus on being happy & feeling your best right now rather than trying to force yourself to "stick to" something hoping it'll make you skinny & happy later

  • Eat when, how, why, and whatever you want with no judgment, guilt or shame - but focuses on why you're eating the way you're eating so you can learn to change it

  • Rebuilds self-trust & self-esteem, learn to hear & honor your own needs

  • Teaches you to change negative internal dialogue, repair your relationship with yourself & prioritize your mental health through modalities proven to improve it

  • Teaches you to understand and manage emotions in healthier ways so you're not always needing to rely on food for everything 

  • Completely empowering - you learn to hear and honor your own unique needs moment to moment

  • Teaches strategies that have been proven effective at easing symptoms of depression, & anxiety

Ready for that kind of real, lasting change?

Intuitive Eating
  • Sustainable but doesn't teach you to retrain your brain

  • Does not teach modalities proven effective for improving physical, mental and emotional health & well-being

  • No foods are off-limits

  • May help some with self-trust

  • Can help reverse patterns of destructive eating caused by restriction but does nothing for the other causes (self-punishment / auto-pilot / stress / emotional eating)

  • Doesn't help with negative internal dialogue or mental health

  • Doesn't do anything about emotional eating or learning to manage emotions without food

  • Doesn't help with depression, anxiety, etc 

    Bottom line: IE is superior to dieting & some of the best IE elements have been built into Cognitive Eating. The differences though lie in how much deeper Cognitive Eating goes into the work required to change why we think, feel & eat (/act) the way we do and how to change it all. CE teaches you coping strategies that improve mental and emotional well-being.
