6-Week Emotional Eating Weight Loss Program

Are you ready for change, but feel unable to get control over your emotional or binge eating?   If you answered “yes,” our program was developed for you.

TheHealthyWeighOut Emotional & Binge Eating Weight Loss Program is a one-of-a-kind experience, developed specifically for people who genuinely want to change their eating behavior, but are unable to stop.  At TheHealthyWeighOut, we know that unwanted overeating behavior is not driven by mere appetite or an excessive love of food.  All too often, people have learned to turn to food as a means to deal with the many stressors, feelings and overwhelm associated with life.  As a result, you may struggle with emotional or physical consequences that include chronic struggles with weight.

If you fit this description, you may be an emotional and/or binge eater who needs a different type of guidance (beyond the typical meal plan and/or exercise routine) to accomplish your goal of ending your overeat-diet-overeat-diet cycle of eating.

thing in-between  …in other words, emotional or binge eaters who turn to food as a means to cope with life.

Two Flexible Emotional Eating Program Options to Help you Succeed!

We understand that not every person is ready to engage in the process of change at the same level of participation.  Therefore, TheHealthyWeighOut offers two, flexible program options that allow you to engage in the process of change, at the level of participation that feels most comfortable to you.

Both options include participation in our 3 exciting TheHealthyWeighOut 2-day mini-retreats.

Benefits of Our 6-Week Program vs. 1-Week Format

African American Couple on Bikes (2)At TheHealthyWeighOut, we know that true, lasting change occurs only over a reasonable amount of time. That’s why we purposefully constructed a 6-week program that allows for a sufficient amount of time for our participants to truly grasp – and master – the concepts they need to succeed.   Our participants are with us long enough to experience the natural ups and downs that come with learning new skills, and they are given support, guidance and encouragement throughout this process, which successfully helps them push through the uncomfortable moments that naturally come with change.

We wholeheartedly believe that it is necessary to work on integrating new habits, behaviors, and emotional change while in the very home environment where these difficulties occur!  Our supportive team is readily available to walk alongside our participants as they are currently walking through it in their home environment, a difference that makes our program truly a one-of-a-kind experience.

The success that our participants have found in our carefully constructed 6-week format has been tremendous and, we believe, is due in large part to the length, structure and “real life” format of our program. Our participants’ success occurs while living in their true home environment, where they develop over time the life-long healthy skills they need to not only succeed, but to sustain their successful change – for life!
