Slender Stoic Weight Management Behavioral Coaching

“Emotional mastery generates self-control.”

My comprehensive bio/psycho/social/behavioral approach to managing weight loss and permanent weight control has evolved over the last half-century of clinical practice, all while watching fad diets, products, and programs grow—along with American waistlines!

I am pleased to be able to offer you modern psychoeducation (REBT/CBT) for emotional well-being and self-control, along with ancient Stoic philosophy for self-discipline and perseverance.

You know by now that diets don’t work and that chronic weight yoyo-ing is unhealthy and demoralizing.  Research also shows that gradual weight loss is more sustainable than crash dieting.

I encourage clients to imagine (we use self-hypnosis too) how they will feel, act and look (in that order) one year from now successfully at their goal weight, instead of having continued to gain weight during that time.

You can master your weight when you master your emotions — so let’s get going!

SLENDER STOIC behavioral coaching can support any eating plan you prefer, including Mediterranean, DASH, low-carb, ADA and WW

“Rational Eating” is another reasonable and flexible approach that focuses mainly on caloric restriction. But recent rethinking of “diabesity” challenges the prevailing “eat less and move more” hypothesis. Instead, it advances the “hormonal obesity theory” (insulin, leptin, cortisol) and advocates intermittent fasting (under medical supervision for diabetics) plus healthy stress and sleep management.
