Food Freedom Evaluator
Do you feel like all you do is think about food and your next diet? Do you find yourself wishing you had more willpower and frequently making plans to try a new weight loss approach?
If so, then it's time to take the Food Freedom Evaluator in order to understand why diets don't work, why it's not your fault and why having more willpower is not the solution.
In under an hour you will learn why diets don't work from a mind, body and spirit perspective and why the harder you try to lose weight, the harder it becomes. You will also learn what you can do to find peace with food.
How it works:
First, you will fill out a brief but in-depth 20 minute assessment online followed by a 45 minute private coaching session. At the end of the call you will know why it feels like food is controlling you, what choices you have to feel better and the top tools I recommend to find peace with food and your body for good. In addition, you will get an 11 page document that explains what your assessment reveals about how you look at the world and we will connect that to how you look at food and body.
This is the first step in freeing yourself from obsessing about food and body so you can devote more time and energy to creating joy in your life. The investment is $99 USD.

How does this work?
Body Story Review: We start with a 75 minute call to review your body story. We look at the trajectory of your relationship with food and body over time so we can understand what brought you to this present moment and what has influenced your choices and actions.
Diet Culture Education: In addition to the latest weight science research, we study how diet culture has impacted your relationship with food and body so you can start to learn when diet culture is present and influencing your decisions and you can take back your autonomy in making decisions about your own body.
Alternative Strategies: We discuss the alternative approaches to your relationship with food and body. We will incorporate concepts from Intuitive Eating, the Health at Every Size approach®, and Body Trust® to help heal from obsessive behaviors and free you from preoccupation with food and body. This is where we will start to challenge old beliefs and lay the groundwork for new beliefs.
Paradigm Shift: This is where we put all the pieces together. We look at your story through the lens of diet culture and through the alternative approaches to taking care of our bodies. We then consider what life would look like using these new approaches and we choose new thoughts, beliefs and behaviors that will empower you to let go of behaviors that are no longer serving you.
Ongoing Practice and Support: We discuss how to truly embody this new way of being and trouble shoot what might get in the way of feeling free when it comes to food and body.
After each call you will receive a personalized summary of the call, including recommended resources.
You will also receive tools, handouts and suggested practices to help integrate the work.
Weekly email support is also included, as needed.

Clients who have worked with me have said:
“I came to Elizabeth full of frustration and fear. I knew diets didn't work for me, but I had no idea what to do next. She introduced me to body trust and intuitive eating. My life was transformed. I came out from underneath the weight of 40 years of dieting, diet culture, shame, and fatphobia. I even found my activist voice and started sharing the good news with my community. I'm free. I needed permission from someone who knew more than me, and I got it. Elizabeth made space for a lot of tears, self hatred, doubt, and ultimately, emergence. I will be forever grateful to her.”
Kathryn Hecht, Executive Director, Alexander Valley Film Society
“During our work together (Elizabeth) helped me gain insight and perspective on what was holding me back and provided me with the tools to do something about it. We mainly focused on the principles of intuitive eating and how my personal life was affecting a lot of what I was going through. I appreciated that Elizabeth always offered several different ways of going about change and recommended a wide variety of resources to supplement our meetings. I would recommend others to seek services from Elizabeth because she created a safe, trusting, educational, and supportive environment.” (Jess)
“When I started working with Elizabeth, I was torn between wanting to love my body and hating my body. I didn’t realize how much I talked negatively about my body until Elizabeth asked me to pay attention to it. I learned that I have to be nicer to myself. I learned to listen to my body more carefully. I am looking forward to digging in deeper with what has already come to the surface. I would recommend anyone who is feeling torn or hopeless with their bodies to try working with Elizabeth.” (Aileen)
JB had this to say: “It's been a year in July since I 'binged'. I have eaten exactly what I want, when I want and have been accepting what is. I can't tell you how far I feel I've come, the freedom that I have never experienced.”
Alex said this about my writing: “I just finished reading your article and wanted to let you know what an INSPIRATION it is!!! You clued into so many truths and expressed them in a way that feels accessible and easy. Your words took me to that place inside of myself that knows I'm so much more than just my story, that I'm a magical and limitless manifestation of consciousness. What a gift. Thank you!”
