Wouldn’t it feel great to know exactly how to support your daughter around her eating, her weight and her health (without worrying that you are messing her – or your relationship – up somehow?)
Imagine knowing how to gently guide your daughter towards healthy choices while still respecting she
And in a secret place, close to your heart, you’d enjoy a quiet knowingness you’d never speak aloud but would cherish: I am being a really good mom about this.
But maybe you're not feeling like such a good mom right now.
Lately, you’ve noticed your daughter is eating more or is heavier than you think she should be and you want her to be healthier but don’t want to put her on a counter-productive diet. (Enter: fighting, power struggles and rebound weight gain or worrying about disordered eating.)
You have an idea of what a healthy supper would be but feel guilty that you don’t always have time to put one on the table. Ah, guilt.
You may also feel guilty that you haven’t always been the model of perfect female health or self-esteem. Maybe your daughter has caught you pinching your thighs or frowning in the mirror and you see in her a waning confidence you felt at her age. You want so badly for her experience to be different.
You’re a good, loving mom and you have probably already tried a lot of things to help your daughter.
There are a lot of moms in your shoes. Some of them put the pressure on themselves to lose weight so their daughters can follow their example. (But we all know how diets so often go.) Some read articles and books about nutrition and try to add new dishes into the dinner rotation, only to have them flop; or be so complicated to prepare that on a busy night take-out wins out (and there are so many busy nights).
Some mothers of daughters go back and forth between trying to set limits on their daughter's eating (and then worry about being too controlling) and then “giving in”
Other mothers of daughters with poor body image are fit themselves – so they try “look at how I do it” pep talks., hoping their daughter will “just get it.” And some enroll their daughters in organized sports or fitness camps in an attempt to address the issue without having to really discuss it (and risk hurt feelings and tears).
All of it – ALL OF IT – comes from a good place and a desire for your daughter to live the best life possible.
But you’re still worried – about her and about your relationship. You may even feel that this struggle is causing you to grow apart, and you really don’t want that.
I know how it can feel (both as a mother AND as a daughter).
My first diet started in seventh grade.
I followed in my mother’s – and my grandmother’s – footsteps (as well as many other women I knew).
When my body started to change with puberty, I was not happy. I remember eating “energy bars” or salads for lunch, counting calories (800 a day!), and obsessively feeling my stomach for bulges.
By the time I was a teenager, I had a full-blown eating disorder which lasted
I eventually recovered, with lots of support and help, by getting off the diet-binge rollercoaster, and instead, I learned how to listen to and nourish my body, my feelings, and my life.
Now, I am a mother of a 9-year-old girl (and an 11-year-old son.) I have been a practicing psychotherapist for 18 years and a holistic health counselor for six.
As a mom, pychotherapist, and health counselor, I've continued on my journey.
I know a LOT about food and health and nutrition, and, like you, I want my children to grow up healthy and well-nourished.
Since I too have a daughter who LOVES her sweets and has had a fair share of mild health issues that I've addressed nutritionally since she was younger, I've had to learn how to balance nutritional "health" with inner peace around eating and her body.
I don't want my daughter to be anxious about her body or about food. I want to encourage a love of eating and a love of her body. I want her to trust her body and her SELF to make choices that serve her. And I KNOW this is harder than it sounds! She is a real person after-all, with a strong mind and body of her own – sometimes she makes choices that I wish she didn't.
I don't want any of our daughters to struggle.
Through my professional and mama experience combined, I have found a way to
And I have used this approach to help many other moms do the same.
I don’t want my daughter, your daughter, or any of our daughters to experience the pain and struggle that I experienced (and that maybe you experienced in your own way too?). I want them to feel peace in their eating and their bodies, so they can focus on being their true selves in the world.
(Dieting, eating disorders, chronic overeating, and hating one’s body do not make that kind of peace and freedom possible).
That's why I created a new program... to help you feel the confidence and closeness that can come from being able to support your daughter, so she really feels you on her side, on this journey of growing up in a female body.
Welcome to the Un-diet for your Daughter:
A Loving, Compassionate Approach To Helping Your Daughter Gain Health and Feel Good In Her Body (And Maybe Even Lose Weight)...Without Guilt, Shame, or Hurting Your Relationship
Diets don’t work (and they can lead to a life-long struggle)!
I would love to take you by the hand and help you figure out what’s going on with your daughter and how you can best help her: nutritionally and emotionally – while SUPPORTING your relationship!
What is the Un-diet for your Daughter program all about?
The Un-diet for Your Daughter is an 8-week program for moms who want to help their daughters and themselves feel nourished, happy, healthy, and re-connected.
In this program, you will learn:
All of the material is broken down for you right here.
This is a safe place to explore some sensitive stuff.
I’ve designed this program to be an experience that you can do at your own pace at home AND get tons of support from me and other moms.
As soon as you register, you’ll be taken to our on-line “classroom” where you can “meet” with me and other participants. In this classroom, you will be able to chat with other moms and ask questions in a cozy, totally private forum…no judgment, no guilt…only support!
Once a week for 8 weeks, I will hold a LIVE teleclass where I (and occasionally a brilliant colleague) will teach you the important steps that will guide you on this journey. You can also ask me questions during these calls. (But don’t worry - I know you’re busy. I record EVERYTHING so you can listen at your own convenience).
The very specific nuts and bolts of this program:
FOOD IS NOT LOVE (or is IT???)
Recording of Interview with Emily Rosen, Chief Operating Officer for The Institute for the Psychology of Eating.
You won’t want to miss this interview with Emily Rosen! Emily knows firsthand both from her personal and professional experience (in addition to the Institute for the Psychology of Eating,, Emily spent years working at kids’ weight loss camps) that diets, calorie counting and restricting almost never work long-term…and she’s goig to share with us a better approach. We’ll dish about portion sizes (love them or hate them?), emotional eating, mother-daughter dynamics (which Emily believes has A LOT to teach us about our eating relationships), and what our girls most need from us. I CAN NOT WAIT to pick Emily’s brain and share her wisdom with you!
HEALING THE BRAIN
Transcript of Interview with Dr. Josh Friedman
Dr. Friedman is a psychologist who has studied with the best of the best when it comes to feeding the brain and eating for mental health. I send him many my clients who are not interested in medication, but who are looking to feel better, sleep better, reduce cravings, eat less, etc. You will learn about EXACTLY what might be getting in the way of your own and your daughter’s balanced brain chemistry, and how to fix it. You will learn about food, supplements and other strategies.
READY TO JUMP ON BOARD?
Worried you don't have the time?
Taking on one more obligation can feel like the last thing your life needs right now. "What if I don’t have time?” "What is the meal plans are too complicated?" It’s okay; all of it is okay. This is a circle of women who understand, many of whom are experiencing the same pressures.
The activities and “homework” will be fun, and including the audio classes, won’t take more than a 2-3 hours each week. There won’t be any ridiculous demands. You’ll do what you can, based on where you’re at. No judgment, no guilt, no shame…
And with all the responsibilities on your shoulders, wouldn’t it be nice to have a whole extra store of support? You (and your daughter) deserve this and you can do it.
And the added good news is: You get access to the program for ONE FULL YEAR. So you can do a little and then take a break, then do a little bit more…in whatever rhythm works best for you. You’ll also have the privilege of receiving any additions I add
the Un-diet for your Daughter is ideally suited to moms who:
If it sounds like this might be right for you, I'd love to have you join us.
The program begins May 8th (but don't worry if you can't make it...all the calls will be recorded).

The cost of the program is only $347.
Although I can’t promise you that your daughter will lose weight or stop talking back to you, I CAN promise you that I will be there to hold your hand as you figure this out. I will offer you information and wisdom from myself and some of the smartest people I know; and I will create a space where you will feel safe to make changes that can sometimes feel hard.
If I could promise you the moon, I would. Instead, I promise you that my heart will be in this 1000%. You are not alone with this.
