frequently asked questions
what if I still want to lose weight, is this program for me?
You're not alone in that feeling! This program 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 explore what that could look like - you are a perfect fit for our community.
what if I don't have a lot of time to dedicate to this right now?
UM -- memberships are perfect for someone like you. Around here, we believe in a work smart, not hard mentality. Diet culture often makes you think you have to do things "100%" to get benefit -- and I'm calling BS. That's just not how you learn. Membership gives you access to inspiring people and ideas so you can be EFFICIENT and MOTIVATED to do what you need to do to breakthrough to food freedom! Plus, all of our events are recorded and stored in your account to watch whenever you want. Think of your membership like a playground for you to explore. Everyone here will understand your experience and shares the same values as you! When you enter our space, your interactions will feel authentic and relevant. Even if you can't do 100% of what's offered each month -that's okay. You'll still take positive, inspiring experiences you never would have had on your own! The insights you learn are immediately applicable so you'll get the benefits ASAP. And what about all the time you're losing time to food guilt? This is a great way to get going now instead of continuing to wait until conditions are 100% perfect to start - they never will be!
I'm not technically in a "bigger body" - is this space for me?
Yes, and let me explain. I explicitly offer support 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 weight discrimination 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: your experience is valid, and you too can have food freedom.
Is this program okay for those with diagnosed eating disorders?
If you are actively experiencing an eating disorder, this program may supplement your care, but is not a replacement for direct Eating Disorder treatment. Please consult with your team before making changes to your care. This program is appropriate for those in stable ED recovery looking to deepen their previous work in treatment.
how long do I have access to the community?
This is a monthly membership offer. You have access to all materials through the duration of the last paid month. You can stay in the community as long or as little as is beneficial for you and your goals. I recommend you stay for 3 months to let your changes really settle in!
where does everything inside the membership happen?
The No More Guilt Community is a private Facebook group where ex-dieters (members like you) who share values for food freedom. Live meetups occur in Zoom. Zoom recordings as well as your monthly release of modules are in Teachable. You will have access to Melissa directly through both forums, alongside 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. In doing so, you'll get member-only discount of $100 off while you're subscribed! If you've been thinking about working with me for a while, this means the membership can LITERALLY pay for itself!
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 membership is comparable to, or less than, any app-based weight loss 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.
