Lesson 1: Body Measurements and Blood Sugar Balance

We begin by addressing the question of, what is obesity? We will look at practical approaches to measuring our body and see who is at risk of developing metabolic syndrome. Throughout the lesson we will address dietary trends and factors that have led to the increase in obesity around the world.

We will address the health risks associated with obesity and take the first step in understanding why we crave certain foods. You will gain the knowledge of how to balance blood sugar levels by choosing the right combination of macronutrients which will help manage cravings and increase feelings of fullness.

By the end of this lesson you will be comfortable in knowing where to begin with scientific based knowledge about how the body functions in relation to food and food storage.

Lesson 2: Hormones, Cravings and Metabolism

We all know that if we eat too much we will store the excess calories as unwanted fat, but what about the other factors that influence where you store your fat? This lesson cracks the myths about the link between hormones and cravings. Can we influence them through eating certain foods?

What causes hormones to trigger cravings in our brain? We will analyze metabolism and establish whether or not we can actually manipulate our metabolism levels? Do certain foods help speed it up, which will help increase fat burning? We will also touch on thyroid function, looking at what foods help it function at its optimal level. By the end of this lesson you will be confident in knowing what to feed your body for optimum health.

Lesson 3: Food Addiction and Binge Eating

It is not enough to know what we should be eating but now more than ever we need to look into why we are eating and how to implement supportive advice. In this lesson we will have a deeper look at the psychology of eating and find out what are the triggers that cause us to eat.

Why does food addiction happen and how do we overcome it? We will find out the common barriers people come face to face with that cause us to fall off the healthy eating path. This lesson provides you with the tools to understanding emotional and environmental triggers to provide encouragement and steps to overcome the issues.

Lesson 4: Does Fat Make You Fat?


In this lesson you will have a better understanding of the good versus the bad fats. Fat is a very important part of our diet as it is needed for many physiological functions and support for the body but we need to be aware of the different sources of fat and the quantities we need to be taking.

We will look at what happens in the body when we don’t have enough fat in our diet and how this can lead to weight gain. Do you know the best oils to use for making a salad dressing or cooking your food at high temperatures? Let’s get the facts on oils and not destroy the healthy food with unhealthy cooking.

Lesson 5: Digestive Health for Weight Loss

Are you tired of spending money on the latest diet pill? Are you irritable and frustrated that you can’t socialize without feeling guilty? Eating foods that you have banned leaves us feeling guilty which lead to binge eating and weight gain. This lesson looks at practical steps to planning your diet, popular diets sweeping the nation and why they haven’t worked.

How healthy is your gut? Are you feeding your gut good bacteria? The second part of this lesson will also give you a scientific look at your gut health as poor digestion has been shown to increase weight gain. You will also understand the benefits of fermented food and where to find them? By the end of this lesson you will enjoy a new way of looking at foods and explore new menu ideas, leaving behind your dieting past for good.

Lesson 6: Is Sugar a Drug?

Hooked on sugar? Lacking energy? Possible sugar addiction? Get the facts!

Sugar is forever getting positive and negative media time, but how much sugar is bad? Should we be giving it up altogether? What is it doing to the inside functioning of your body and what effect does sugar have on your brain- we are talking chemical reactions.

Let’s also get the true facts about fructose and fruit. How much fruit should we be having and which ones have a higher impact on GI and weight loss. Is too much fruit really bad for us? Or is fructose really that different to sucrose and its impact on the body? This lesson will empower you to feel comfortable that you have all the knowledge about the different sugar forms and what you should be eating.
