For how long? How about forever... 🥳
If eating less & moving more REALLY was the answer... seems like we would be done talking about this by now, and we wouldn't be caught in this hamster wheel of having bigger and bigger patients going on more and more restrictive diets.
Our culture is innovative enough that we have self-driving cars, Amazon packages delivered by drones, and even Pepperidge Farms figured out FINALLY how to make us a double dark Milano...
Yet here we are as health professionals - decades later - still promoting weight loss to clients because we were taught to believe it was always the answer.
LET ME TELL YOU A STORY...
I grew up in the 80s and 90s teasing my hair, drinking Slim Fast, and watching Oprah drag her “wagon of fat” across the stage thinking that weight management was an essential way of life for women.
Micromanaging our bodies was normal.
It was required.
And it was the only way to health.
I realized eating less and moving more wasn’t working for me like it was supposed to.
Or my friends. Or my family. Or pretty much anyone.
I spent one minute questioning everything I was taught in medical school… then I spent the next five years questioning why we continue to work in a HEALTHcare model that looks an awful lot like WEIGHTcare.
It seems really too crazy to be true... but the minute I took the focus off my own weight - I’ve never been healthier and happier.
The HAES movement is all about improving the quality of care and life for people in large (or otherwise marginalized) bodies.
But we can make no progress unless we have medical professionals, especially physicians/medical doctors, fighting along side us for this cause.
To that end, Dr. Maggie Landes, is a gem…a diamond in the rough.
She is always more than willing to share her knowledge, experience and time, and I love that she is a physician in this anti-diet space, making a difference.
It is so needed, as I’ve experienced with myself, my daughters, and my own clients. I love that Maggie will give it to you straight, without judgement.
Bonus: She is hilarious and easy to talk to!
First order of business, we need to take a deep dive into how diet culture and weight stigma have affected everything we thought we knew about health and nutrition.
This is the evidence to support a weight-neutral approach, and the starting point for changing our perspective on how we wish to practice moving forward.
In module one, you’re going to learn:
The professional persona you show to the world matters - A LOT! This module will help you align your health pro image with your new weight-neutral values to elevate your brand and attract sophisticated clients.
In module two, you’re going to learn:
This module will help you see your own practice through your client's eyes. You will recognize hidden touch points that offer your practice an opportunity to connect or an opportunity to stigmatize clients.
Everything in the client experience counts - and this is the whole enchilada!
In module three, you’re going to learn:
So we've gone through a lot of "what not to do"... and you may be wondering "now what am I supposed to actually do instead?"
This module is the "how to guide" that allows you to still practice health promotion and maintain your professional obligations - all while sticking to the weight-neutral model of care!
In module four, you’re going to learn:
A lot of this course thus far is about THEM... but this module we are going to turn our attention to YOU!
Adopting a weight-neutral approach to care is advantageous to everyone involved - and not just your clients!
In module five, you’re going to learn:
For how long? How about forever... 🥳
Never used Slack? No problem… I'll teach ya!
Due to the nature of their content delivery, digital products are generally non-refundable, and that includes the "Take Your Health Practice Off the Charts" online course.
We are 100% confident both your health practice and your client interaction will be transformed after participating in this course and implementing what you've learned!
However, I believe so much in the value of this program - if you have completed the course in its entirety and exhausted all the included opportunities for support - and you still feel like you have seen no change in your practice… I promise to make it right for you.
As a social work professional who’s personally been coached by Maggie, I’m extremely confident in my endorsement of her ability teach health professionals to neutralize weight stigma and implement the Health at Every Size (HAES) principles in their practices.
Her ability to communicate the complex physiological and emotional components involved in changing the way we approach our own desire for wellness and self-acceptance is also exceptional.
She is always pushing herself to know more so she can teach more. I am thankful for her passion and ability to push me beyond traditional ways of thinking about health for everyone!
Especially if you want to have a more inclusive practice, she's who you need!
Maggie has a way of presenting information so that it resonates, and she breaks it down so that it’s easy to understand and take action.
I have gained so much knowledge from her, everything from advocating for myself along with having tools to better support clients. Maggie is my go-to!
