Description

Are you a stressed out, overworked nurse who, over the years, have found yourself feeling uncomfortable in your own skin? Have you tried supplements, personal trainers and restrictive diets without the scale budging or being able to fit into those jeans? Do you feel shame about your current weight? You don't like how you look, you aren't the role model you should be for patients, you just don't feel healthy… or happy? Do you feel like you’ve been spinning your wheels in trying to lose weight, getting nowhere fast?

We all know what it takes to lose weight - exercise & healthy food - but if that were true, then why is it so difficult for many to lose weight? The truth is that it requires much more than exercise and nutrition - also unlocking your own behavior, sabotaging habits and disempowering narratives around weight loss, as well as understanding the optimal diet and exercise for your metabolism.

In this recording, Dr. Ruiz, a Naturopathic Doctor and Registered Nurse, will help you unlock your own potential for weight loss in a healthy and sustainable way. You will understand why fad diets won't work - and what diets could work for you. You will analyze your 3-day diet and lifestyle diary, gain clarity around weight goals, overcome sabotaging beliefs about your weight loss journey and develop a sustainable action plan for achieving your desired goal.
