The Diet Fix
with Carol Charland-Cliche
End diet failure using modern discoveries in brain neuroplasticity for long-lasting weight loss. Despite success stories by Atkins, Keto and Weight Watchers 90% of all diets end in failure. Every time you started a new diet, and it failed, you put weight back on, you created the “diet failure habit” or neuropathway in your brain that sabotages weight-loss efforts. Learn how “diet failure” becomes encoded in the brain, how it has sabotaged your weight loss efforts and how to reverse it by making new neuropathways for positive change using modern discoveries in brain neuroplasticity. You can eliminate diet failure, unhealthy eating habits and stick to a diet plan to lose stubborn weight with Neural Retraining Therapy (NRT), an amazing new mind-body approach to eliminating unwanted habits and behaviors. It gets amazing results!
Class includes a 45-page eBook (Stop Weighing In), step-by-step instructions for retraining techniques, a 14-day action plan, and a bonus 30-minute in-class guided imagery session you can record for home use to jumpstart your journey!
