frequently asked questions
I'm not technically in a "bigger body" - will this guide work for me?
Yes, and let me explain. I explicitly offer this program to women in bigger bodies (this refers to women who are plus-size) because I don't see very many food freedom programs specifically supporting women like my mother in finding food freedom.
I know from my Mother's story how women in bigger bodies are more likely to experience fatphobia directly, and, more likely to be encouraged to diet from a very young age. Acknowledging this experience benefits all who hope to stop fearing weight gain and start living their lives without food guilt.
All who apply the skills found in the ex-dieters guide will benefit from my No Guilt Framework, but it is important to me that women in bigger bodies know: you too can have food freedom.
Is this course okay for those with diagnosed eating disorders?
If you are actively experiencing an eating disorder, this course may supplement your care, but is not a replacement for direct Eating Disorder treatment. This course is appropriate for those in stable ED recovery looking to deepen their previous work in treatment.
what if I still want to lose weight, is this guide for me?
You're not alone in that feeling! This course is designed to help you focus on your relationship with food so you can stop choosing weight loss over your wellbeing. If you are ready to put weight loss on the back-burner for 30 days so you can learn this framework, you will benefit from the course.
how much time do I need to dedicate to this course?
In writing this course, I kept efficiency in mind. I give you tools and support to focus on the right things at the right time. My hope is that you will dedicate 1 hour per week to engage with the material and other members in the No More Guilt Community. Other than that, the skills you learn are immediately applicable so you can get the benefits ASAP!
how long do I have access to this guide?
You will have access to the ex-dieters guide for 3 months from your date of purchase. If you would like to renew access to the course and the No More Guilt Community, you will be invited to do so when your access ends in 3 months. This policy is to promote accountability to complete this course and engage with other members so that you can be successful in reaching your goals.
what is the No More Guilt community?
The No More Guilt Community is a private Facebook group where ex-dieters and former NMG clients come together to learn and grow in their food freedom journey. You will have access to Melissa through this forum, as well as other members going through this journey so you feel connected and empowered every step of the way!
what if I want more support?
If you want more time with Melissa, you are invited to apply for a 1:1 or group coaching program. I will deduct the cost of this course from your package fee and help you reach your goals.
do you guarantee success? is this worth the cost?
I provide a proven step-by-step framework and methodology to help you improve your relationship with food. My clients who apply the method and follow my framework find success. The price for this program is comparable to, or less than, any coaching-style diet program you've done in the past. You are investing in skills to find what works for you to eat effortlessly and guilt-free for a lifetime, as well as role model for others in your life how to do this too. Most graduates who finish the No More Guilt program say they "would have paid more" for this program because the value and outcomes exceeded their expectations.
