Nutrition & Weight-loss Membership Program
The Ultimate Healthy and Happy
Makeover for Women Over 40
This is it – the final stop!
No more yo-yo dieting, no more counting calories, or berating yourself because you couldn’t stick to your last diet. I get it! I know you are tired of trying diet after diet and not getting results.
You wish you could be in better shape but with all the information out there, where do you even start?
Welcome to the Mind/Body Reset Academy!
This is the game changer because it is ALL ABOUT YOU!
Together we create healthy habits that work for YOU. No cookie cutter meal plan that you can only follow for a few days and then when you can’t follow it anymore you get the feeling that once again, you failed. No “all or nothing” mentality that deprives you instead of feeling abundantly nourished. And no more doing it all on your own! The reason there are SO many diets out there is because they don’t take into account that life can be busy and hectic so when you “fall off” the diet, another one is created for you to “jump on”. And the roller coaster weight loss and gain continues and at the same time chips away at your confidence and your budget! We all have tried and we all know, we simply cannot create beautiful prepared recipes for 3-5 meals every day as life pulls us in every direction demanding our attention. Nor can we survive on grapefruit alone. Diets and pre-designed meal plans don’t take into account your personal preferences nor provide you with real, honest, expert guidance and accountability. YOU DID NOT FAIL, the approach did!
- learning healthy habits to lose weight and keep it off, that fit in with YOUR lifestlye
- becoming consistent with these habits and life-changing behaviors
- your body changing in ways you can see and measure
- improving your mental and emotional health
- boosting your confidence and happiness
- becoming more informed and knowledgeable about nutrition
- taking pride in yourself and your personal accomplishments
And by doing these things, you find you:
- engage more with your kids or grandkids when your poor health initially prevented you from doing so.
- take few medications, less of those medications…or even get off medications completely.
- take control of your life – becoming more resilient, to take productive risks, to try new things and activities, to have cool experiences, to get out of bad situations and try new, more helpful and affirming ones.
- improve your relationships with partners, family, friends and colleagues…even find new love (or renewed love) as a result of your increased confidence.
My Mind/Body Reset Academy is one hundred percent client-centered.

As your coach, you receive expert guidance, accountability and support, working directly with me each week so we can celebrate your successes together and overcome your roadblocks. No more guessing and doing and it on your own. THIS IS KEY! It is very easy to talk ourselves out of doing things, to get down on ourselves, to believe we don’t have it in us, and then quit. How many times have you started a new diet or fitness plan, full of determination and vigor, but when life gets too crazy, or you have a few down days or missed days in a row, you give up? And then all the thoughts of self-doubt creep in and you wonder “can I ever do this?”or “maybe I am just supposed to be unhealthy, overweight, or out of shape”.

What if one call could change your life?
“I love having the feeling that I can do anything I want to – a half marathon, a kickboxing class, a yoga class – anything and everything!”
“It was hard to start slowly,” Laurie admits. “I had to make myself a beginner again.”
And as a former aerobics instructor who knew a thing or two about fitness, that took a bit of humility on her part. She had to give up on being the expert and do what she was told for a change. It was an unfamiliar position, and not a comfortable one at first. But the payoff was worth it.
“I loved loved having the workouts printed out. I didn’t have to think. I didn’t have to count calories. I didn’t have to worry about next week. I just had to do each day’s task when it came up,” she says.
And, as things turned out, “each day’s task” was the most she could possible manage. The hardest part of the program, for Laurie, was what she calls the “woo-woo thinking” — the kinds of lessons that asked her to look into herself and reflect. What is this mind-body stuff, she remembers thinking.
“And yet it helped to make myself do those assignments,” she adds. “It really helped.”
Combined with her practical, can-do attitude, working through those difficult lessons forced her to break some long-entrenched patterns, ensuring she’d make a permanent change. Asked what advice she’d give to somebody else who might be considering the program.
“Put aside your preconceived knowledge. Don’t be in a rush to get ahead. Just do the day’s tasks. Don’t worry about anything else.”
She pauses for a moment, maybe thinking about all the obstacles she faced — her age, the thyroid condition, the cancer, the move, the restaurant meals, the traveling, the loss of her sibling.
“Really, there’s no reason not to succeed at this,” she finally says. “It’s so well thought out and so well designed.”
“If I can do it,” she adds, “anybody can.”
Cheryl knew she wanted and needed to lose weight, but was skeptical it wouldn’t happen for her because she had tried so many diets before.
“This is so much more than a weight loss program. It’s a body-mind transformation program. And if you are ready, and you trust, you will find out who you are or who you want to be.”
Cheryl gave herself permission to be imperfect but never quit; she was not going to let the money she invested go to waste and also knew that with accountability and support coupled with the Precision Nutrition platform, even though imperfect happens, you keep going.”
“The realizations and aha moments that I have had throughout this program have truly turned me into a different person. I learned that it was okay to make mistakes. I reinforced my belief that the glass really is half full, and you just have to reframe to see it.”
“I learned that as I started to feel better about myself, my confidence increased and I no longer would accept less than what I deserved. I learned that when you give good positive energy, it really does come back. I learned not to be afraid!”
“I used to love look at before and after stories and thinking, what does it take to do that? I could never do that. I bet they feel fantastic. Gosh, wouldn’t that be nice if I could feel that way about myself?”
Married and mother of five, Patricia (PPJAM on the forums) has been taking care of people for decades. “I’m very focused on my role as a wife and mother,” she tells me. “I absolutely love helping my family.”
But when your attention is on everyone else, it’s tough to focus on your needs. Like most middle-aged women who desperately want to lose fat, Patricia ran the gamut of weight loss pills and procedures. “I did the liquid diet, I fasted, I had B-12 shots administered, I did Atkins, Jenny Craig, and even went to a “weight-loss retreat” in Vermont for two weeks,” she says.
But did any of it work?
“I lost nearly 80 pounds on Jenny Craig, but then I got pregnant and gained it all back,” she confesses. “I was happy to have another child on the way, but gaining the weight back was a huge disappointment. And it was a quick change — I never exercised or learned any habits, so I’m not sure if I would have been able to maintain my new body even if I didn’t get pregnant.”
So with a new kid on the way and four more and a husband to take care of at home, the next few years turned into a frustrating seesaw routine of losing ten pounds then gaining twenty back.
“I’d feel guilty any time I ate anything,” she says. “I felt like I was being judged. I wasn’t happy with the way I looked or felt. But I had no idea what to do.”
Change, it seemed, never wanted to stick around for long.
“You have to be a little selfish. And that’s a very hard thing for women — especially mothers — to realize and get over.”
Part of Patricia’s struggle to lose fat and keep it off was always feeling selfish for doing something for herself. “I felt like I’d be doing my family a disservice,” she says. But nothing could have been further from the truth. Last December, an email from her daughter Laura pinged on to her screen. It was a link to sign up for the waiting list of the January ’10 Precision Nutrition Coaching program.
“The day I signed up I sure wasn’t thinking that I’d be great at it,” she says. “I’d tried so many things before that I was almost positive I wouldn’t be successful.”
But when she received another email a few weeks later letting her know that she had been accepted, she felt a tiny spark. For the first time in a long while, Patricia was excited to give her fat-loss efforts another shot. And her family — grateful for all her love and wanting to see her succeed — rallied to support her.
“I’m a big learner and read everything on the website,” she says. “I loved how the PN process was geared toward teaching. I just hoped it could teach me how to lose the fat and actually keep it off for the rest of my life.”
Like many women, starting strong has never been an issue for Patricia. Before she started Precision Nutrition Coaching, her all-or-nothing attitude always helped her maintain whatever diet she was on — until she took one small misstep.
“I was always on target until that one bad thing happened and it completely derailed me,” she says. “Usually it was something small. I’d be doing great and then I’d have one cookie. That one cookie would completely upset the balance. So I’d have another. Then I’d acquiesce and move right on to all the ice cream I’d missed.”
Once she took that small step off the path, she couldn’t get back on no matter what she tried. The guilt would eat at her and she’d feel like she could never follow through. But when she signed up for Precision Nutrition Coaching, something changed.
“I learned that I had control,” she says. “I realized I could have a clean slate every time I messed up because this was about my healthy lifestyle, and not just a diet. Precision Nutrition Coaching taught me habits and changed the way I view my body and the food I put in it. It’s a life plan, and it’s something I know I can manage forever.”
Not only that, but the 70 pounds she lost is staying off. “Now I’m always in control,” she says.
“I know they struggle the same way I struggled,” she says “I know lots of women who have miserable self esteem and feel hopeless and can’t make progress.”
“I’ll be honest with you,” she says. “I look at the people around me — especially middle aged women — and I really want to help them. I want to show them they don’t have to settle,” she says.
“They need to stop looking for a quick fix. I know they’re frustrated with Weight Watchers or whatever diet book they’re doing and I feel so badly because I know there’s a better option,” she says.
“I’ve done it. I’ve lived it. And I’m going to keep living it for myself.”
“I feel amazing.”
That she could say this with such confidence and authority was in itself a powerful shift. Because in the past, she probably couldn’t have identified how she was really feeling.
At the start of the program, her main concern – like most clients – had been with losing fat. With looking good. With how things seemed on the outside.
Now she realized, her focus had altered. Instead of concentrating on the way she looked, she was more concerned with the way she felt. With her own internal experience.
She was learning to listen to her body’s signals.
“If I ate processed carbs, if I didn’t get enough sleep, if I missed getting exercise, I felt yucky.”
If fact, when she didn’t follow the new, healthier habits she’d learned in PN Coaching, she felt just plain bad. Today Sharon is lighter than she has ever been. Not just in physical terms – but also in spirit.
