Start loving your body and stop feeling guilty around food
It’s all about learning to build healthy habits, live a healthy lifestyle and learn how to manage your thoughts and feelings around food.
I work with teenagers who want to build a healthy lifestyle.
Being a teenager is difficult. You are probably struggling with puberty hormone fluctuations and trying to accept a body that constantly changes. Plus, you have tons of homework for school, you might even have a part -time job or play sports or do other activities that don’t leave you a lot of time to really focus on healthy ways to stop overeating.
I am here to show you it does not have to be a struggle! I created the LIFT Program to help teenagers like you. Talk to your mom to learn if the LIFT Program is a good fit for you.
You are a busy mom, you work hard to provide for your family, you spend so much time and energy to try to have healthy food on the table most days, but you still can’t control what your teenager does.
Your child maybe prefers to have chips or pizza or other fast food. Or your child might have a voracious appetite and even if it’s right after dinner you hear the words “ I am hungry”! You think maybe it’s because of all the puberty hormones, but is this really it or not? You don’t want to hurt their feelings and create body image issues so you let it go but the problem gets bigger and bigger…
It can be very frustrating, it hurts, you wish you could do more but you cant.
I am here to show you it does not have to be a struggle! I created the LIFT Program to help your family.

2. PHYSICAL ACTIVITY

- What exercise is good for a teenager
- How to make exercise easy
- Learn to recognize uncomfortable emotions
- How to handle stress
- How to handle disappointments
- How poor sleep affects emotions and weight gain
- How to create healthy sleeping habits
- How to love yourself and your body

- How to manage unhealthy social influences
and other similar topics.
You can watch these videos any time during the week that works for you. That makes it convenient for everyone’s busy schedule. You can attend the program at your own pace so you never feel you are behind.
Every week there will be a workbook around the topic of the week that will help you set realistic goals and take action, because theory alone does not produce results, daily practice creates habits that last.
Every week there will be two separate live group-coaching call (one for moms and one for their teens), where we will celebrate your wins and discuss how to overcome your specific obstacles. You and your child will learn not only from your experience but from the experience of others in the group, who face the same challenges. You will experience the super power of having a strong support group and an accountability partner.
You will have access to weekly healthy and easy recipes for the whole family, so you don’t have to spend time figuring out what to eat every day.

What works for adults, is not always the best for children! The LIFT program is designed to address the unmet needs of teens that struggle to build healthy habits and lose weight and are looking for solutions to their specific needs, that can be different than those of the adults.
The LIFT programis designed by a pediatric endocrinologist, obesity medicine specialist and certified weight loss coach, who understands the importance of achieving and maintaining a healthy weight via a lifestyle change. You can read more about my credentials here ( Click Here ). You can talk to me directly during the initial free consultation, the live webinars and our coaching calls.
The LIFT program is a safe and sustainable program for life, that each family can adjust to their own cultural background. It’s not a magic secret diet, it’s about the mindset behind following a lifestyle.
The LIFT program is designed in a way that teenagers work along with their moms. This is done because teens get better results when their family is involved in helping them create a healthy lifestyle.
The LIFT program offers a safe space for families with teens where they can express their struggles without judgment. You can feel understood and connect with other families that face the same challenges.
Teens and their moms will be coached in two separate live coaching groups each week. I will give your family my full attention, so that both moms and teens have the dedicated time they need to have their unique concerns addressed.
