The Taste of Now

Do you want to lose 20 pounds or 120? Do you want to stop using food to soothe yourself? There is a solution. It requires honesty and courage – not deprivation.

The Taste of Now is a two-part program that brings consciousness to all aspects of food and eating. It’s about how, where, when, and why you eat – designed to set you free from the struggle with food and excess weight. It offers a detailed approach to the process of mindful eating, allowing you the freedom to eat what you enjoy, and enjoy what you eat, and lose weight. Imagine!

The Taste is a healthier, sustainable alternative to dieting. It’s based on ten points covered in a 24-page workbook that speaks to each point and provides reflective questions and Healthy Habit Suggestions for each.

Learn how to:
  • identify the beliefs that drive your behavior
  • understand, and end, emotional eating
  • bring consciousness to all aspects of food and eating
  • feel powerful versus powerless around food
  • handle cravings in a healthy way
  • listen to your body and trust yourself
  • stop the cycle and corresponding judgment of “I’m good…I’m bad.”
  • lose weight in a healthy and sustainable way
