Fabulous Over 40!

Once we hit 40, it’s all downhill. We suffer from hormonal imbalances, we put on a few extra pounds each year, our energy crashes, we develop brain fog, and we just don’t seem like ourselves anymore. We long for the days when it was easy to lose weight, our bodies were fit, and our energy seemed endless.

Does this bother you?

If so, you are right to be bothered!

Join a group of people that refuse to give in to “middle age” and let it all go. In the Food Boss programs you will be empowered to be your absolute best. You can regain your vitality and energy! You can take control of your eating and lifestyle habits so that your hormones work harmoniously, your metabolism gets turned on, you have more energy and mental focus, and you become an even better version of you!

The REAL YOU is just waiting to take action, to take charge, and to be your absolute best.

And that is good because if you don’t take action, it really is only downhill from here. The weight will continue to pile on, the energy won’t get any better, and the risk for disease will slowly but surely climb.

I am offering you an opportunity to buck that trend and to have fun doing it!

In Food Boss I help women that want to optimize their health and reach their happy weight to take control of their eating habits so they can realize their potential and be fabulous and fit at any age! 

“I find myself on one fad diet and then another. I lose some weight and then I gain it all back. Why is this so hard?”

“I just want to feel like myself again”

“I used to be fit and had no problems maintaining my weight. I want to get that back but I don’t want to suffer.”

“I do fine until I’m stressed, then it all falls apart.”

These are just some of the quotes I’ve heard from people about their struggles with lasting weight loss and feeling like they are out of control and can’t seem to revive their vitality.

Most of us know WHAT to do, but we can’t seem to figure out all the details of the “HOW”.

Since 2011 I have been working with people to guide them through the process of improving their health. Most of my clients have known the basic concepts of what to eat in order to gain health and lose weight. What they struggle with is figuring out how to consistently follow those basic concepts to reach their goals.

Maybe you’ve tried losing weight and being healthier but:

-Have given up because it felt too restrictive

-Felt miserable and eventually gained all the weight back again

-Have trouble losing weight, no matter what you do

-Tend to sabotage your hard-earned work with bad habits later on

I see that these are REAL struggles for people and most of the dietary advice out there doesn’t address them or just pays lip service to them. 

Achieving sustained weight loss and reaching maximal health in a way that is not only enjoyable but also comes from a place of power and control over your choices does not seem to be even possible if you look at the options offered out there.

And yet, being at your happy weight, regaining your vitality, and being at your best, all while having a positive relationship with eating, is so important for living a long, productive, happy, and healthy life! 

*The only thing I ask is that if you are thinking of signing up for the course, please be committed. Without commitment and belief that you can reach your goals, success will be much more difficult, if not impossible.

Through my work I have come to discover that having the right mindset and enjoying nutritious AND delicious food are absolutely required for optimal health, full vitality, balanced hormones, and hence sustained weight loss to happen. There are no ifs, ands, or buts about it!

Community support, accountability, and proper goal setting are also crucial for success. I have found in my practice that when all of these factors are in place, people begin to achieve maximal health, they feel great, and the weight comes off and stays off!

So I have created a course that fulfills all of these needs. In the Food Boss course I provide accountability and support while showing you exactly how you can easily regain control over your eating, and have delicious and nourishing food that will allow you to gain health as you lose weight.

Once you realize that you can CHANGE HABITS and use them to your advantage and that urges hold NO POWER OVER YOU, you will be free, you will be in control, you will be THE FOOD BOSS!

Here are some quotes from participants after just 3 weeks of the course:

“In two weeks I’ve tossed over 8 lbs and I’m going to the gym at least 3 times a week. Besides that I take hikes with the dog too. I love the food I eat and that really makes a difference for me.”

   ”FoodBoss was the first and only program that made weight loss actually happen for me. The breaking down of all the different elements in our lives, like habits and cravings to what is real nutrition is what made the difference for me.
  Really showing me where to start and how to break down and pick up every single little piece that was needed to change my lifestyle and see what I really needed to work on to make changes happen for me. Jill’s education, knowledge, dedication, accountability and follow ups was what finally worked for me!
                    Thank you Jill!
Ps I’m 10 lbs down today!! Feeling great, craving the gym etc etc” 
“The good news is I have been quite conscious about what I have been eating (really ramped up the vegetable count) and still exercising (honestly not quite as much as I usually do because of work commitments) and I have dropped 5 lbs. as of this AM.”
   ”For me the big difference is that you are sharing your knowledge as a nutritionist not telling us what to eat or how much to eat. Knowledge is power.”

Harness the power of habits, take control of urges, and enjoy meals that are nutritious and delicious!
