+ Unit Two

BREAKING THROUGH DENIAL

This segment deals with the many facets of denial. Denial is when we avoid facing uncomfortable thoughts and feelings by reaching for food for comfort or to manage stress. This segment is designed to strengthen your recovery by helping you identify areas of denial that have kept you stuck. You will learn and implement more effective ways to manage stress and emotional pain.


+ Unit Three

UNDERSTANDING AND OVERCOMING ADDICTION

This segment serves to deepen your understanding of the addiction process. Knowledge is power and the more you understand the nature of food addiction and what is happening in your brain, the more power you will have to stop the addiction cycle!


+ Unit Four

TRANSFORMING MY INTERNAL MESSAGES

In this segment you will take a look at some of the internal messages you may have about who you are and what you are capable of. When you challenge the accuracy of these messages, you can free up your capacity to find more meaning and connection in life, overcoming your addiction to food and eating in the process.


+ Unit Five

LEAN INTO THE PAIN

We avoid emotional pain as though the pain itself is the problem. Pain is NOT the problem. Running from the pain is the problem! As food addicts, we run from pain with food. When we stop running and learn to more effectively manage our pain we can discover what is on the other side - joy, confidence and freedom from food addiction!


+ Unit Six

DEVELOPING A RELATIONSHIP WITH MYSELF

During this segment you will come to understand how your relationship with food has kept you from having a healthy relationship with yourself. As you work on body image issues, you will come to recognize some of the powerful messages your body is trying to send you. You will also learn how to “get out of your own way” and empower yourself to get what you want out of life.


+ Unit Seven

TRANSFORMING MY RELATIONSHIPS WITH OTHERS

Our brains are wired for connection. We seek it, we need it, we long for it and when we can’t get it we despair. Additionally, connection helps the brain to heal from addiction. In this segment you will learn some effective tools for better communication and deeper connection.


+ Unit Eight

EXPERIENCING ANGER IN HEALTHY WAYS

Understanding anger and how we respond to it helps us to stop “stuffing” it down with food. In this segment you will explore new ways to express anger, deal with resentments and take greater accountability for your own happiness.


+ Unit Nine

BOUNDARIES FOR HEALTHY RELATIONSHIPS

As you explore your own relational patterns, this segment will guide you through the healthy setting of boundaries in your relationships. Learn to accept what you can’t change, meet with courage that which you can and surrender that which you cannot control as you find new freedom to be you.


+ Unit Ten - Your Life in Recovery

MY LONG TERM RECOVERY PLAN

Shore up your recovery as you review your progress, develop a Relapse Prevention Plan and put supports into place for future success as you complete the Lifestyle Transformation Treatment Program for Food Addiction!


 
Dieting doesn’t work. A permanent change in eating habits, activities, and attitude is necessary to overcome overeating caused by emotions, stress, anger, boredom, depression, or sheer habit. Recovery is a daily endeavor.
