You probably think your willpower sucks and you have no discipline. That you love food so much, you can’t lose weight because you just can’t eat that health food crap. When exactly would you find time to cook? You’ll probably never feel comfortable in your own body anyway, no matter how hard you try.
The truth is, our culture’s “dieting mindset” has it all wrong. We keep trying to solve an emotional, intuitive, feminine problem with rational, logical, masculine techniques like weighing and measuring ourselves and our food. We assume we need to cut out food that’s pleasurable because it’s “bad” for us. We’ve forgotten how to connect with our inner wisdom to guide us.
My 12-week coaching program helps you understand where you’re not properly nourished and why. It helps identify what specifically is getting in your way, so you can set reasonable goals and take steps to break down those barriers. You’ll learn to get curious and re-connect with your mind-body system so you can hear what you truly need, and can act upon that clear advice.
When we work together, you’ll discover ways to re-purpose all that amazing energy you’ve put into obsessing with food and how you look into your ultimate desires and dreams. You’ll find, access, and have the courage to be your authentic self. You’ll find your own unique balance between taking care of yourself, taking care of others, and taking care of business. Can you feel that freedom!?
Some Ways To Improve Your Relationship with Food
Yes, you have a relationship with food. You also have a relationship with your body. Are these relationships healthy or unhealthy? I believe that deep down, you know the answers to these questions. Finding a balance between healthy and pleasurable eating requires more than the next quick-fix diet. Losing weight and keeping it off requires shifting your mindset so your behavior shifts without force. If these are new concepts, they just may be the answer you’ve been looking for. I invite you to explore these resources to start you on your journey:

- 4 Ways to Lose Weight This Year Without Going on a Diet – What many know from experience is that few diets are successful, especially long-term. But if you want to quiet emotional / stress eating, if you want to lose weight, if you want to improve your overall health, what else can you do? In this post I talk about 4 simple (though not necessarily easy) ways to make a real impact.
- What Your Diet Plan Should Not Look Like – In this post I talk about my own exploration into a particular way of eating, why “customized” plans are sometimes not truly customized, and what the components of a “nourishment” plan would include.
- Which Comes First? Confidence or Control? – Here’s the interesting thing about control (over what we eat, how we eat, what we weigh, etc.) giving us the self-confidence and self-esteem we desire: it’s an illusion.
- Mirror mirror on the wall. . .I’m not broken! – How often do we women look into a mirror and criticize our bodies? When something we try on doesn’t look right, our self-talk isn’t usually “oh, this outfit is awful.” . . . we expend a tremendous amount of our power and life energy shaming ourselves; later we wonder why we don’t feel confident or sexy or happy, and believe it’s tied to our physical shape!
- Live Your Life, Love Your Food – There was a time in my life where I was obsessed with food, and like all obsessions, this one took some time to unravel. …it was always the same once I’d gone on a binge: I’d realize and track what I’d done, to see how badly I’d gone over my calorie allotment for the day. “Well,” I’d think, “today’s a bust. I’ll start again tomorrow.”
What People Are Saying
Never once did I feel judged in any way. I always felt comfortable even when I was pushed past my comfort zone. My goals were centered on feeling better and man oh man I feel sooo much better … and although it was something I did want, it wasn’t my goal … I lost 28 lbs, and it feels like it was effortless. It feels so wonderful to continue to be amazed at how just a few moves and breathing can change your life, how you feel, increase your self-esteem, how you carry yourself, how you feel inside … centered. What I found in the process is that it is so much more than the eating, it is about life and how you live it … balancing things and being gentle with yourself. Kali helped me do that. – Mary G.
Kali is a phenomenal coach and has helped me move through a very challenging time in my life remarkably quickly with incredible support, personalized practices, and kind accountability. I was able to slow down and to listen to my body’s needs, become more mindful about eating, prioritize what was truly important in my crazy-busy NYC lifestyle, and my gut issues began to heal very quickly. Kali makes wise and practical suggestions as well as helps you connect to your own wisdom. I greatly appreciated her guidance as well as felt empowered and grounded in my own ability to change. Kali is a uniquely wonderful combination of down-to-earth (working realistically with your current circumstances), intuitively insightful, and invites you to get curious about extending your limits so you can make lasting, fulfilling, and healthy changes that you deeply want. I am very grateful for our time together. – Alison K.
When I started my journey with Kali, I was looking for some easy to implement ways of taking better care of myself. As a mom of two boys and having a very successful career, I was often last on the list when it came to my own personal health. During one of our first conversations, Kali helped show me the importance of taking care of ME, what it would mean to my family and husband. After only a few sessions, I am paying attention to things I never would have before. I have slowed down the pace of my eating, which in turn helps me to eat less. I am better able to monitor the health of my body in other ways, too, and have been able to take proper action when necessary. I have found more healthy ways of managing my stress-which has helped me to avoid eating mindlessly and over consuming things that are not good for me. Her pleasant demeanor, her kindness are such a welcome interaction during my week. -Allyson B.
