Are you sick of dieting?

Want to know why 22 of the world’s leading nutritionists, psychologists and transformation experts tell their clients to take the “Non-diet Approach?” Perhaps because the world is full of diets (seems like there’s a new one every day). And yet people seem to be having a harder and harder time losing weight. Would you agree you’ve had similar results? I know I did when I was on the diet rollercoaster. Up and down and round and round. (Emphasis on “round” – the pounds always seemed to find their way back to me!)

If you’ve noticed how difficult it is to lose weight and keep it off by dieting, you’re not alone. In fact, all of the experts mentioned above agree that losing weight is about so much more than following another diet plan. And they are all gathering together in a monumental, transformational online event called the Right Mind, Right Weight Summit 2017 to discuss how changing the relationship you have with food (instead of staying on the diet roller coaster) can transform the way you approach weight loss so you can learn how to keep it off for good!

Because this event isn’t open to the public, you can only get access if you are invited by a member of the panel of experts. And lucky for you… Yours truly is on the panel! So, if you’d like to join me in taking part in this transformational and life-changing tele-summit (which is absolutely free of charge), then all you need to do is claim your spot by registering at this link.

Because this is an 11-day tele-summit, over the course of 11 days you’ll be receiving emails with links to the live sessions. That means you don’t need to travel anywhere, you don’t even need to change out of your pajamas! (And don’t forget – it’s free!)

Just sign up by clicking here, get ready to take notes and to experience a transformational change that will hopefully give you the tools you need to finally stop dieting forever!

There was a time in my life when I traveled extensively for business. This was while I was an Associate Creative Director with an advertising agency, which took me from San Francisco (where the agency was located) to all over the United States. While I had already lost the bulk of my 250 excess pounds at this point, I was still learning how to keep it off (and was admittedly struggling with yo-yo-ing, weight-wise).

This was why I decided to try being a vegan. This lasted for about 2 years. But during this time I was very careful about what I ate and found it did help me think more about every morsel of food I put into my mouth. Now, being a vegan in San Francisco was easy. But the rest of the country? Not so much. Thus, I found whenever I ordered food (which I often had to do since I was traveling for business), I had to be very explicit in my instructions.

I still laugh about one time I flew into Boston (where I had a client) and checked into a hotel late at night. As I hadn’t been able to eat much on the airplane, I was quite hungry and decided that, even though it was late, I was going to order dinner from room service. Yet because of the time of day (or night) even room service had a very limited menu. I quickly scanned the ten or so choices and focused in on the pasta dish. I decided I could give the room service staff enough direction to make sure that the pasta was plain and wouldn’t come with any dairy or animal product.

While ordering on the phone, I said “No cheese.” Several times. I’m sure the guy taking the order thought I was nuts. If I said it once, I said it five times. “No cheese.” I even made the guy say it back to me. I hung up the phone, got unpacked, and soon heard a knock at the door letting me know that my order had arrived.

After the room service attendant left the room, I uncovered my dish to discover… Gnocchi. That’s right. I had been so animate about getting “No cheese” in my order, that the room service staff had somehow found and cooked “Gno-chhi-s” for me — even though it was no where to be found on the room service menu. Instead of getting angry, I had to laugh. And actually I was impressed that the room service staff was so anxious to please (even so late at night).

For those of you reading this who want to know if I re-ordered or if I ate the gnocchi… I ate it. And I enjoyed it. And yeah, that was sort of the end of my years-long attempt to be vegan. I will point out that I didn’t eat the entire portion that room service had delivered. That counts for something, right?

I share this story in order to laugh at myself — and to remind us all that being on a diet or trying to eat healthy should always be done not only with flexibility, but also with a sense of humor (the most necessary ingredient of all).

Do you have any travel related dieting stories to share? I’d love to hear them. Please post below — whether the story involves “No cheese” or “Gno-chhi-s” — is totally up to you.
