How Lisa Works
If you’ve come to this site you have clearly been struggling with weight for some time. You’ve probably been on and off fad diets your whole life and wishing there was another way. If you are looking for an alternative to a fad diet you have come to the right place.
The vast majority of people I see have been battling with weight for many years and living in an almost constant state of frustration. This is one thing that weight loss diets will guarantee is that you will be frustrated and possibly miserable and guilty too.
Weight loss is one thing but what happens after that? Usually weight regain; research tells us there are not many people that can sustain the weight they have lost, so you are not alone. Where as what I have developed is system for weight control, because really control of food, emotions and our habits all lead to controlling our weight. Weight Control is a means of creating freedom from frustration and guilt. Weight control is a long term solution to your weight issues.
Motivation and will power are the two ingredients most sought by dieters; they incorrectly assume these are the keys to success. The thing we see with our clients is they get over this hump and can finally see freedom from diets, the alternative – a new lifestyle where they are free from the stress and guilt of dieting and they feel compelled to eat well and exercise. They reach a point where they couldn’t live any other way.
If you think this sounds like what you are after and you’d like some help; don’t hesitate to be in touch either to make an appointment or to ask a few burning questions, then we can get underway with your new lifestyle.
