Are you struggling to lose weight or to eat better? I’ve been there, and I know how hard it can be.
It’s no secret that diets don’t work – but sustainable changes in our routines do. Because we’re not creatures of will-power, but of habit, it can be really tough to make those changes to stick.
One of the things that’s been proven to help people lose weight and keep it off has nothing to do with food: it’s hypnosis.
Tapping into the power of the subconscious mind can make it that much easier to follow through on your good intentions long enough for those little seeds to take root and become habits.
I’m excited to let you know about a brand-new resource I developed to help you rely less on willpower and help bring healthy eating habits onto autopilot. It’s a 15-minute meditation designed to help tap you into your inner wisdom so you eat only the foods that are most nourishing for your body, in exactly the right amount.
Since the emphasis is on nourishing yourself, it’s also an awesome resource if you’re already at a healthy weight, but want to crowd out the junk and increase your nutrient density.
The affirmative suggestions I include encourage you to:
- Nourish yourself with whole foods that your body can digest
- Relax, slow down and eat mindfully and with gratitude
- Love your body regardless of what it looks like
- Drink water between meals
- Align with the time-tested principles of Chinese Medicine and Ayurveda (like eating with the seasons, respecting digestive fire)
- Become aware of what’s underneath your cravings
- Stop emotional eating by tending to the underlying need
- Close your kitchen after dinner to avoid evening snacking
- Feel strong and healthy in your body
Unlike other weight loss meditations, I don’t ever mention a “goal weight” or have you visualize your ideal body; I find that counterproductive for loving the body that’s here right now. And I don’t know of any that explicitly incorporate Chinese Medicine and Ayurvedic dietary principles.
- Listen every day for 15 minutes. Watch your relationship with food change.
“I really appreciate your vocabulary, the authenticity, and the relaxing tone of your voice. I loved the fact that you managed to include so many of the Ayurvedic elements around healthy eating. What resonated with me were your references to seasonal eating, the inner ecosystem, connection to the web of life, inner wisdom, and noticing.
I found the recording easy to listen to: I was able to feel focused, calm and relaxed throughout. I LOVE the part where you asked me to show myself the same comfort and kindness I would give to a friend.”

“Your voice is amazing for relaxation and deep listening. The flow and rhythm were perfect. The tone of voice also perfect. It’s easy to listen to and appealing to come back to. I will definitely use it often; I need that stuff to sink in!”

“I absolutely love this; my daughter age 10 also enjoyed after a few grumbles and comments she grew still and listened. It opened up a very nice conversation about how in the Western World we do not have so much of this knowledge around food and our bodies, or what is truly nourishing, let alone listening to our bodies. Absolutely beautiful! [After a week of listening], I have been slowing down and remembering to eat mindfully!”
– Tania Milliken
“I just listened to your Healthy Eating meditation. It is beautiful. Your voice is so rich and full and soothing — it sounds velvety and soft. I found the positive affirmations spot on and beautifully expressed. I am going to try to incorporate this into my daily life at work before eating, which is time I struggle to connect with my food. Thank you.”
– Amy Eldredge
“Your voice is very calm, warm and welcoming. The pace is steady. I definitely drank more warm water today as a result of listening last night. Thank you!”
