Because Diets Don't Work.

Starting yet another restrictive diet is not the solution, and you are NOT the problem. Caught in the painful trap of taking weight off, only to put it back on? Surprisingly, emotional eating is a leading cause of chronic struggles with weight! TheHealthyWeighOut is Arizona's innovative Emotional and Binge Eating Weight Loss Program created especially for individuals who struggle with emotional eating, compulsive overeating, and binge eating disorder. Developed by our compassionate team of eating disorder and weight management specialists in the fields of psychology, nutrition, and fitness, TheHealthyWeighOut is a non-judgmental, dynamic program that will help you identify the many reasons WHY you continue to overeat (such as stress, overwhelm, boredom, anger, sadness, and loneliness), and will successfully teach you HOW to change your problematic eating behavior, so you can achieve the healthy body and weight you desire, for life! If you are frustrated, hopeless, or tired of approaching your food, body, and weight by engaging in the same restrictive, repetitive, ineffective dieting behavior, you are not alone! Want long-term, sustainable change? Take TheHealthyWeighOut!

Success Takes More than Willpower Alone!

As eating disorder specialists with more than 20 years of experience helping our clients to develop a healthy relationship with food, body, and weight, we know that it takes more than shear "willpower" to successfully change your lifestyle. And, while knowledge is good, we also know that there is a significant difference between knowing what you need to do in order to change your relationship with food, and actually being able to do it! For only when you identify *why* you continue to turn to food for such emotional factors as comfort, stress, boredom, loneliness, sadness, avoidance, anxiety, and/or fear, can you hope to achieve long-term, sustainable, healthy change! At TheHealthyWeighOut, we know that unhealthy, excessive diets don't work! And, as eating disorder specialists, we know that rigid, restrictive weight loss approaches lead to even greater obesity and, for many individuals, the creation of disordered eating. Effective, sustainable weight loss requires eating for nutritional value and not emotional fulfillment.

Two Ways to Approach Your Weight Loss Goals

Committed to meeting the needs of each unique client, you can choose to experience the essential, interrelated components of our programming through our comprehensive 6-week Emotional Eating Weight Loss Program, which is offered at two levels of flexible participation. The Gentle Start level includes 3 exciting 2-day mini-retreats conducted in an emotionally safe small group format, designed to teach you how to overcome emotional eating once and for all without ever dieting again. The Jump Start level includes the 3 mini-retreats plus individual sessions with our Registered Dietitian and personal trainers. Participants at this level are also invited to join small group workouts with other program participants and alum. For people who are not able to participate in the 6-week program, "a la carte" individual Emotional, Nutritional, and Physical fitness services are available. Either way you choose to proceed, our specialized team is here to guide you, educate you, and walk along beside you as you learn how to successfully journey down the sustainable path toward...TheHealthyWeighOut!
