Our Revolutionary 3-Pronged Approach

Our liberating approach will change your relationship with food, your body and yourself 

Happy Woman Exercising trying to end emotional eating

At TheHealthyWeighOut, we believe it is time to teach our wonderful clients how to eat, not how to diet. TheHealthyWeighOut is not a traditional “diet” program, nor is it a temporary solution. Quite the contrary!

TheHealthyWeighOut is an innovative, comprehensive three-pronged approach created to help chronic dieters, emotional overeaters and people who binge eat to end, once and for all, the diet-overeat-diet-overeat madness, allowing you to develop an empowering relationship with food, your body and your self that will bring true freedom from food and the healthy life and body you desire – for the rest of your life!

An INNOVATIVE 3-Pronged Approach that changes your life – from the inside out

At TheHealthyWeighOut, we know that it is possible to feel comfortable in your own skin, regardless of the number on the scale. We know that it is possible to live through life’s natural ups and downs without the need to turn to food for comfort, to reduce stress, or to reward yourself at the end of the day.

And, we know that it is possible to find a way to engage in exercise that is enjoyable, not shame-provoking, and that eventually becomes a positive part of your life that you actually start looking forward to!

Sound impossible? That’s what most of our clients believed, as well, when we first met them. After embracing our 3-pronged approach, however, their lives have forever been changed.

A Comprehensive Approach for Lasting Change

Perhaps the first outpatient treatment program in the nation to combine the treatment of Emotional Eating and Binge Eating Disorder with HEALTHY Weight Loss, our program is truly blazing a new path by integrating the necessary, interrelated areas of Nutritional, Physical AND Emotional health with a healthy “no-diet” approach for long-term, sustainable results!

Our comprehensive, three-pronged program includes the following essential, interrelated components:flower

  1. EMOTIONAL: This component helps you to identify the many “whys” of your overeating behavior and helps you to learn more effective, emotional coping skills and behaviors so that you will no longer need to turn to food as your primary means to cope. We also explore and help you to understand how you learned to cope with food (likely from early age), and how to replace self-judgment with compassion and genuine empathy for your self.  We also teach you how to appreciate and work with your emotional needs, as opposed to ignoring or dismissing important feelings and needs.
  2. NUTRITIONAL: Our Nutritional component is not just about learning how to read food labels and healthy portion sizing! To achieve sustainable behavioral change, it takes a seasoned combination of psychological and nutritional know-how to eliminate old problematic eating habits and to replace them with healthier, sustainable practices.   We will help you understand the “how” and “why” of the interaction between nutrition, physiology and your emotions – and you’ll learn how to work with your body’s individual physiological make-up to decrease sabotaging food cravings and to actualize the healthy weight loss and behavioral change you desire!  We also work with issues of metabolic changes due to yo-yo dieting, Type II diabetes care and education, and eating for fulfillment and not deprivation. Lastly, you’ll learn intuitive eating skills that will be the ultimate in helping you become free from food! 
  3. PHYSICAL: We understand that for many people, “E-X-E-R-C-I-S-E” has become a four-letter word! Yet physical movement is one of the most positive, essential behaviors you can do for your physical health and emotional well-being. Alongside our incredibly skillful and compassionate female personal trainers, Marta and Terri, you will become re-acquainted with your body, you’ll be re-introduced to fun (and also effective) movement, and you’ll re-learn the wonders of all your body CAN do! We will gently work with your potential feelings of body-insecurity, shame, and/or frustration over potential physical limitations due to years of chronic struggles with weight and, eventually, along with the compassionate support of our mature trainers, you’ll learn to fall in love with movement again:)

Three Ways to Approach Your Goals of Life-Long Change

The 3-prongs of our TheHealthyWeighOut approach can be addressed in one of three ways, depending on your personal preference.

1.  Our classic 6-Week Emotional & Binge Eating Program.  This is our most popular approach and is an ideal way to experience the 3-pronged Emotional, Nutritional, and Physical movement components of our treatment philosophy.  Utilizing both small group and one-on-one services, this powerful option helps participants to bring about physical and emotional change in a concentrated period of time. We offer two levels of participation – Jump Start and Gentle Start – both uniquely designed to meet your needs. 

2.  Our new 4-Week Emotional and Binge Eating Program.  With all of the services offered in our 6-week program, our 4-week program is delivered in a concentrated format with only one-on-one services delivered during days and times that work with your schedule. Known as our Premier Start level, this individualized program is sure to help you find lasting freedom from food. 

3.  For those who are not yet ready or able to participate in our 6-week or 4-week programs, we offer individual services in the 3-pronged areas of Emotional, Nutritional, or Physical movement.  These services can be personalized and experienced on an à la carte basis.

Whichever approach best suits your needs, we are here to help!
