We live in a world that wants use to keep gaining weight. We need to fight back! We need to understand that weight loss is complex and is more complicated than eating less and moving more. Research has clearly shown us what does not work for weight loss. So then what does? It's clear. The obesity epidemic is environmental and its time we are realistic with individuals that lifestyle interventions that emphasize on the "eating less" idealogy will only predispose individuals to weight regain. Do you want to stop yo-yo dieting? We know we can lose weight, but what prevents us from regaining it? This course will not only teach why its hard to keep weight off, it also won't leave you there. It will teach you how to overcome our own resistance to weight loss and keep it off for good. You will learn:

1. What is the metabolism's responsibility in weight regain. This matters and if we don't understand it we will continually be on the weight loss regain cycle.

2. A system that will allow you to be flexible enough to manage the environments we live in and never have to count calories.

3. How to change the environment that you live that pushes you towards weight loss vs. weight gain.

4. How to change your behaviours and support the change through your environment so that is becomes a habit.

5. Learn why willpower and motivation will never help you reach your goal.

Who is the target audience?
  • Those who want to lose weight and keep it off and those helping others to do the same

Introduction to the course
1 Lecture 03:11
Do you think it's your Metabolism?
6 Lectures 35:32

I will be discussing what makes up our metabolism and the difference between resting metabolism and exercise metabolism. If you want to determine what your own metabolism is. Go to any search engine and search Harris Benedict resting metabolism calculation. Play around with the subject characteristics to better understand what influences metabolism.

Do you really know what metabolism is?

There are no fast or slow metabolisms, there are only efficient or inefficient metabolisms. I will explain the difference and how this will impact weight loss.

The reason why it's so easy to regain weight

This will explain whether or not we can boost metabolism as we lose weight. There is a difference between ones ability to grow muscle and lose fat at the same time. Does this phenomenon really exist.

Can I really boost my metabolism while I lose weight?

Low carb diets produce the largest amount of weight loss, but do they produce the largest amounts of fat loss over time? This will explain the difference between water weight and fat weight. There is a reason why its called carboHYDRATE. Does this hydrate at the end of the word carbohydrate mean anything?

Preview 08:03

Does it seem that your weight is destined to be at the same weight for the rest of your life? Does the set point theory exist? I'll explain this theory and what you can do to overcome this in your life.

The Set Point Theory: Why does my body like to be the weight it is.

There are many reasons why we gain weight. Its complicated but I will explain how to view it simply and how this will impact your weight in the future. Every reason why a person is overweight comes down to one diagram, I will explain this in the video.

What causes a fat cell to grow? Its biopsychosocial
A system that will work for you and those around you

The exchange system will help set you up for success but will also lead you to understanding what stands in your way of weight management over the course of your life.

A new way to lose weight: Counting calories won't keep the weight off

This lecture will give you the simplistic version of the system and what we are looking for along with a journal to get you started.

Types of food we reference in the new language
Food exchanges
10 Lectures 16:42

Grain classification in our exchange will teach you how to live in this carbohydrate and lose weight vs. the elimination of them which may predispose you to weight regain in the future.


Dairy is a carbohydrate on our list. This will describe where it fits in the exchange system, allowing you to plan better.


Fruit is a carbohydrate on our list. This will describe where it fits in the exchange system, allowing you to plan better. We do recommend fruit, although a carbohydrate, as a part of a well balanced lifestyle.


We are social creatures. Sometimes alcohol is part of our lives. In the area of weight management is there a space for alcohol? We will teach you where this fits in to help facilitate health in a social world.


Even too much protein can give rise to more fat cells. In this lecture I will teach you what a protein portion looks like and how it fits in the exchange.


Fat can be easy to consume in our fast paced world. In this lecture I will teach you where it fits in and how to better plan fat in your life and see change.


Vegetables are free in this exchange system. The only time they aren't is when we juice them. In this lecture I will describe where vegetables fit into the exchange system.

Vegetables and types of drinks

We live in a fast paced world and sometimes we can't cook. So where do restaurants fit into the exchange? I will teach you the restaurant exchange and how this looks from a visual perspective to better equip you in restaurants and fast food settings.

Restaurant meals

What if we don't even know what we're eating? In this lecture I will describe how mixed foods and items that may be difficult to classify sit including foreign foods.

Full order and half order of food

We all like the odd treat in our life. Its social and cultural. I will show you where treats fit and how to better plan for these in your life.

Treat rule
How to put the system together
7 Lectures 27:25

This will explain how home prepared foods fit into the exchange system and how to lose weight with any designed meal.

How food can be described using the new system

Now that I know the system how do I log my meals using the exchange system? In this lecture I will show you what a log sheet may look like and how to log a day of food using the system.

Putting it all together

This lecture will teach you how to design your perfect biological plan as well as one that can be used that takes in account the psychosocial that is unique to you to allow weight loss and weight management.

step 2 in building your plan

Things get in our way when we plan something. Plans can be broken. In this lecture I will teach you how to name the barrier so that you are better equipped to overcome them. 

naming your barriers

Once you have identified your barriers, this lecture will teach you how to form intention statements to overcome each unique trigger you come across in your life.

How to manage your barriers

This food documentation sheet goes with the first step in building your plan

The first step in building your own plan

These are more examples to help push you in the right direction of trigger management. It will bring the thoughts and words together.

Examples of barriers
Where does exercise come in?
2 Lectures 04:58
Exercise introduction

Exercise frequency is the most important in weight loss
2 Lectures 11:12

This will teach you why motivation can't be relied on. Weight loss isn't a matter of willpower but skill power. This lecture will teach you why you can't rely on willpower to succeed.

Do I really need to be motivated?

Now that you know what triggers you need to manage to better see success, this lecture will teach you why environment has to now take on the responsibility of that new behaviour change.
