Mind Over Body Weight Management Programme™

Losing weight is more than just eating less and moving more.

Most people know what to eat less of and what to eat more of, but the problem is, you find it really hard to stick to your best intentions. In order to succeed you need to learn new habits and a new way of thinking about food and yourself. The Mind over Body Weight Management Programme™ is based on Cognitve Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and Mindfulness Therapy.

MEET THE FOUNDER, SUSI LODOLA

I understand that to lose weight and keep it off you need more than to “eat less & move more”. I learned that through my own experience, as I went through most of my life trying out the latest diets and exercise regimes which promised to help me lose weight.

I counted calories, points and syns, I cut out whole food groups, detoxed and drank shakes. I did lose weight on most of those plans, but I found it difficult to sustain and very soon the weight came back on, and then some more on top of it.

The thing is, I knew exactly what I should eat and what I shouldn’t it. Most of what I ate was healthy, home-cooked food. However, I was an emotional eater, and I found that is the case with most people who come to see me for weight management.

MY MISSION

Part of my mission statement is to continually update my skills in light of expanding knowledge about human development and psychological well-being.

It is important to me to keep abreast of relevant research in the area. In October 2018 I attended a 2-day workshop at the Beck Institute in Philadelphia where I updated my skill in CBT for weight loss with the most eminent experts in the field, Dr Judieth Beck.

In this workshop I learned the latest evidence-based strategies aimed at modifying my clients’ thinking and behavior so they can make permanent changes in their eating and lose weight.

I also completed a Masters in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, and my research study and dissertation was based on applying CBT for weight loss.

Do you self-sabotage your weight loss efforts?

Have you managed to lose weight only to have it all creep back on again? Are you always looking to find the one that ‘works’? This constant cycle of weight loss and weight gain is difficult and frustrating and can leave you feeling helpless, unhappy, and with very low self-esteem.

The focus of the Mind over Body Weight Management programme is on mindset. Losing weight is more than eating less and moving more. It is a skill that you learn.

After all, most people know how and what they should eat in order to lose weight. The difficult part is to stay motivated. This 8-week programme will show you how you can stop self-sabotage, stay motivated, and put an end to yo-yo dieting.

Working on your mind to help you to make lasting changes is the missing link in most diet and weight loss programmes. Diet and weight loss programmes that focus only on food and exercise are missing a vital component – they do not look at getting your mindset right to keep you motivated and successful in the long term.

The Mind over Body Weight Management Programme is based on the latest research in Psychology on the most effective way of achieving lasting weight loss. During the programme you will get the psychological tools, based on Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), which have been shown in hundreds of research studies to be more effective than diet and exercise on its own.

What is Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT)?

Weight loss is complex, and research tells us that eating healthy and exercising is not enough to successfully lose weight and keep it off.

We have deep-rooted emotional associations with eating and these have a huge impact on how and what we eat.

Diet and weight loss programmes that focus only on food and exercise are missing a vital component – they do not look at getting your mindset right to keep you motivated and successful in the long term.

CBT provides you with a set of tools that will change the way you think and therefore the way you behave around food.  Changing behavior, in particular long-term, habitual patterns, takes practice and this programme will support you throughout to help you make those changes. The tools are for life and applying them consistently will enable you to maintain a healthy weight.
