Clients come to me because they are looking for something truly different and want to connect the dots on why nothing else has worked long-term before. They are disciplined in many areas of their life, like their career or being a great Mom or daughter. In fact, they are usually high-performing and high-achieving in a few areas in life.
Yet they can’t understand why they fall off track with their eating and suspect there has to be more to this than more willpower or discipline.
This session has been referred to as “a Truth Serum” and a non-psychedelic “Ayahuasca” for self-discovery and breakthroughs. We peel away at the standard story that being healthy is about “willpower” and staying “on track” and is incompatible with “real life” (that’s impossible).
We do this by discovering and deconstructing your auto-eating spiral.
Your auto-eating spiral, specifically your story, patterns and corresponding behaviors are the root cause of why you fall off track with food.

In this episode, you’ll discover:
- The 5 stage anatomy of a downward eating spiral in more depth for some clear ah-has
- Why it is “worth it” to eat bad food in the moment
- Why traditional emotional eating approaches cause us to eat more overtime
- Real life examples so you can get clarity in your own unique auto-eating spiral
