have you ever thought...
- I'm tired of thinking about food all the time- I've literally been dieting forever
- I feel alone, like no one gets my food struggle - not even the ones closest to me
- I'm frustrated I keep losing control around food, why can't I get it together?
- I’m FOR SURE an emotional eater, and I'm not sure how to stop
- I love food and just wish I could enjoy it like a normal person
- I still want to lose weight, but what I want more is to feel at peace in my body
it's time for the
no guilt framework
This 3 month membership is for women who want to feel supported by a trusted community as they work through a tried-and-true framework and become the first in their families to break the diet cycle.
let's face it: diets don't work
I've distilled my proven No Guilt Framework into a 30 day DIY journey so you can take a fast-and-focused approach to food freedom without going back to diets
what will it feel like to:
...trust that you are "doing intuitive eating right"?
...stop waiting for weight loss to live your life?
....no longer binge and eat emotionally?
... stop obsessing over food?
...and actually listen to your body?
the No Guilt Framework offers the one thing my mother never got in her bigger body:
support to respect her body and be herself
food guilt distracts you from living the life you deserve, and trust me:
you are not alone
I watched my mother try to lose weight most of my life. Her relationship with food and body image worsened with every diet.
I remember Weight Watchers booklets and Jenny Craig meal replacements in the freezer. I remember her not wanting to be seen, standing in the very back of group photos so she could hide her bigger body. That is, if she got in the photo at all.
My mother learned to fear her bigger body, and this fueled her painful pursuit of on-again, off-again weight loss diets for years.
Oftentimes, people would praise her weight loss, without really knowing what she was going through to make it happen.
Each time she fell “off a diet”, she’d enter long periods of feeling defeated: she’d start overeating and give up on her self-care entirely.
My mom's negative self-image at the hands of lifelong dieting made it hard for us to connect growing up, and I don't want that to happen to any more mothers and daughters. I want to be the first in my family to break the diet cycle. And I want to help you do this too. Our story is why I built the No More Guilt Framework: I want to help as many women live a life of freedom so the next generation grows up without food guilt and body shame.
there has to be more
to life than dieting...
"Almost immediately, giving myself permission to eat and to rest stopped any binge behavior I was having. It was like a magic lightbulb going off. It is just food. I can have it anytime, so no need to go crazy. I'm moving toward respecting my bigger body."

what clients are saying
"There really is no substitute for the framework Melissa provides. She is so transparent and competent with this material. There is no reason to wait or delay taking care of yourself, the investment is worth it 100%."
- Katie S, Former Client
meet Kelsey, former NMG client
No More Guilt improved my well-being in so many ways! The goal and milestone approach were reasonable and I tracked my progress in a very accessible way. If you struggle with your relationship with food and are interested in a structured approach to examining this that is non-judgmental and easy to implement, Melissa's program is the way to go!
- Carly W, Former 1:1 client
I have spend 20ish years on diet plans, meetings, diet books, etc.That money and time is gone and I have nothing to show for it. This course does require an investment of time and money, but it is far less than what I've spent in any given year when I was trying to lose weight. Also, most importantly, I have something to show for what I've invested. I have skills, knowledge, and insight that I didn't have before taking this course. I feel confident that I will continue to build on what I have learned for years to come.

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.
your Registered Dietitian
and food freedom coach
I'm a lover of books, laughing, french fries, and the color yellow. I want food freedom so I can be present and truly enjoy these things I love. I spend most of my time fawning over my dog Lucy (you'll see her often on my Insta account @no.more.guilt) and being goofy with my high-school sweetheart and partner, Dave. We live in Boston, but my accent only comes out around high school friends and a bottle of wine. I've been described as: warm, bubbly, helpful, and happiest around people who share my sense of humor and values for authenticity, learning, and fun. I can't wait for you to get your hands on this guide so you can be start to feel more present and enjoy the things you love, too!
