How would you feel if you could eat bread (or other carbs) without feeling like you need plead guilty to some sort of heinous food crime?
Or what if could breathe a gigantic sigh of relief, because you’ve FINALLY realized that the key to having a healthy body you love and are proud of is to CHILL OUT (aka break up with) all those lying, cheating diets.
Oooo ooo!! What about being able to experience stress, anger (or any other emotion) and NOT end up crawling into bed with a pan of grandma’s brownies, voraciously eating them until there’s nothing left but shame and chocolate dust?
I know what you’re thinking now…so let’s ALL SAY IT TOGETHER.
“IT SOUNDS WAY TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE!”
Yeah, yeah, I see you over there giving me the suspicious side eye, waiting for the cheesy-covered catch. Hell, I’d give myself the side eye as well if I heard someone slingin’ promises like that!
After all…you’re a smart cookie (or a bag of chips. Or a peach. Or a margarita…). You’ve been around the food block. You’ve tried every diet in the book.
You know what’s up when it comes to those evil carbs and the all-sacred protein and green tea for fat burning and the ol’ “not eating after 8 PM” rule.
- The guilt of putting something in your mouth that isn’t “clean” or “sugar free” (or WHATEVER) is always there, making meal time a regular source of indecision and frustration (instead of enjoyable and pleasure centered)
- No matter how many pounds you lose, it’s never enough to love what you see in the mirror. So instead of enjoying things like the beach or an awesome trip to the zoo with your babies … you are consumed with making sure you wear the right clothes to cover it all up.
- Your new daily mantra seems to be“how did I let myself get to this point”, which usually results in tears and shame and then eating #allthethings
So after experiencing all this, you resolved to start a NEW diet, determined to change your life this time. This one will work. It WILL. It HAS to…
and…well…I don’t need to tell you about what usually happens next…
Case in point – you are SO sick and tired of being at war with food … and are DESPERATE for a BETTER WAY TO LIVE!
Well, girlfriend…before we go on, I need to tell you something. You are NOT a failure. Diets have been scientifically proven to cause MORE HARM than good. They lift you up into a whirling tornado of high expectations and dreams, only to spit you back out, battered, scuffed and feeling like you weren’t “strong enough” to hack it. Willpower is a FAIRY TALE. You aren’t weak. Get angry…because you haven’t failed.
DIETS HAVE FAILED YOU.
FORTUNATELY, the good news is this:
A healthy body WITHOUT dieting DOES exist!
Picture the following (roll with me here):
- Knowing the exact steps to take when you start beating yourself up over your weight, food intake (or whatever other mean things you say to yourself)
- Going to a social gathering and have NO anxiety about what you are (or aren’t) going to eat (yup! Possible!)
- Choosing fresh salad instead of a giant cheeseburger because YOU WANT IT (and not because your diet says you have to)
- Feeling comfortable in your own skin, no matter WHAT weight you are or WHAT jean size you wear (um…FINALLY!?)
- Understanding exactly how to nourish your body in a way that is NOT restrictive and WILL help you find your healthiest body (hallelujah!)
HEY! I’m Christie and I’m a Registered Dietitian that loves #ALLTHEFOOD. Seriously. I love Doritos and I love kale. I’ve experienced all the emotions and all the binges that come with it. I’ve hit 300lb…I’ve hit 215lb. So the weight roller coaster? Done it.
I’ve done the shame thing, I’ve done the embarrassment. I’ve done the stress…done the anxiety. I’ve experienced supreme love and supreme fear and everything in between in my relationship with food.
So yeah…I’m a dietitian THAT GETS IT.
It took years of ups and downs, tears, education and more to come full circle and realize that only when I RELAXED through the journey, would I have success. Since then, I’ve been able to completely give up diets, find health at whatever weight I happen to be at, find emotional freedom from food and TRANSFORM how I feel about my body.
Because honestly? I don’t have the energy anymore to keep worrying about it (something tells me you don’t either).
So….what this all really boils down to is that you have the RIGHT to a healthy body (without diets), a guilt-free relationship with food and a powerful confidence in yourself (that has absolutely nothing to do with your weight).
It is for these life-changing, warm and cozy, wrap-you-in-a-comforting-hug style reasons that I want to invite you to join me in a program that I created to help you give you all these things (the same things I’ve achieved myself)

Frequently Asked Questions
I understand that this program is an investment and you wonder if “it will work.” Honestly, LiveLoveLose is designed so you can’t fail. One of the biggest principles I teach is self-compassion, forgiveness and an acceptance that NO ONE is perfect. You are releasing years of destructive diets. It takes time! There will probably be times when you say “screw this! I’m gonna go back to dieting for a bit.” That’s not a failure either! That’s COMMON. Intuitive eating is a process and you are always learning something new! So yes…with commitment on your part, and the support from our community – it can work!!
Now – refunds. That being said, if after 30 days you truly feel that LiveLoveLose is not for you, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org and request a refund. Due to the digital nature of the course and immediate availability of a majority of the class upon purchase, you must submit completed copies of your workbook pages from Coffee Chats 1-4. You must also have shown ACTIVE participation in the LiveLoveLose Cafe- VIP room, meaning at least two postings from each unit (8 in total), answering the various questions the course asks you (there are many opportunities where you are prompted to visit the cafe and respond to a question.)
Will this program help me lose weight?
The focus of the LiveLoveLose program is not weight loss. It’s focus is on normalizing your relationship with food by helping you to reject the diet mentality, honor your true hunger and fullness, find trust satisfaction in what you eat overcome emotional eating, and SO MUCH MORE. If you have spent a lot of years eating beyond your fullness and using food to cope with your emotions…it’s very possible that your weight will normalize over time, once you embrace this non-judgmental, body driven way of eating. If you have been maintaining a weight that is lower than your body’s genetic healthy weight, and it requires regular strict dietary restriction and excessive exercise, it’s possible you may gain weight.
It is for these reasons that you MUST put weight loss on backburner while going through this program. The goals of LiveLoveLose are to help you make peace with food, respect your body unconditionally and break through the emotional eating. The feelings of freedom and self love you will achieve from this program are how we measure success. Once you accept these things into your life – the number on the scale becomes less important. What becomes your priority is finding the healthiest, most vibrant self you can be.
I'm WAY TOO busy to take on a program like this - why should I join?
I hear ya. I honestly haven’t met a person that ISN’T busy these days! While LiveLoveLose does ask you to really start making some big changes to your life…it is also designed to be taken at your OWN pace. There is no expectation that you complete one module every week or whatever. I mean…you can if you want…but as you learn as you enter LiveLoveLose, it is all about compassion. It’s about going easy on yourself. It’s about doing things in a way that works for you and your life. The completion of this program isn’t the first priority…it’s about what you learn in the journey (whoooooaaaaa that got deep for a second! My grandma would be proud). Really though. If you “fall off the program” (whatever that means to you), the program is always here for you to pick back up. Life is messy. LiveLoveLose gets that. It’s here to create space and reduce stress in your life!!
