You're Here Because You Know There's More to Life than Food Obsession
Hi, I'm Jill Coleman, your instructor for The #Moderation365 Certification, MS in Clinical Nutrition and recovered obsessive dieter.
Over the last 10 years at JillFit, we’ve helped over 10,000 people overcome their food obsession with the #Moderation365 principles, taking them from extreme all-or-nothing dieting to a completely customized way of eating that feels effortless and automated.
This is not a weight loss course (though often clients will lose weight as a result of quitting the binging and being less stressed overall).
This is a FOOD RELATIONSHIP CERTIFICATION.
With the goal being one thing: even out the highs and lows in your eating and learn to eat the same on Saturday that you do on Monday, literally eating the same 365 days a year. Holidays, vacations, dining out, “special” occasions, all-you-can-eat buffets, Grandma’s famous apple pie, whatever … NO PROBLEM.
The #Moderation365 tenets did not exist back in 2011 and 2012 when I was starting to see that myself and dozens of my clients were not able to stay on strict meal plans and diet programs.
All we had were coaches telling us to “just stay compliant” and “you just gotta want it.”
We were left with shame, guilt and embarrassment that these rigid, depriving diets made us want to dive headfirst into a pan of brownies and never reemerge.
On top of not getting the outcomes we desired AND the immense self-loathing that went along with it, thinking about food, counting, measuring and OBSESSING felt like a full-time job.
No one was talking about moderate eating (and honestly, most hardcore dieters like myself would’ve found it too watered down anyway).
No one was sharing tools or telling us it was okay to be kind to ourselves.
No one was taking away the judgment and just helping us get clinical.
After nearly a decade of dieting and obsessiveness, one day on a hot June day in North Carolina, I finally threw my hands up and said, “I’m so miserable, I can’t keep doing this, I don’t care if I gain 50 lbs, I have to figure out how to eat normally forever.”
I quit the all-or-nothing, weekly deprive-then-binge eating I was doing—which WAS NOT working btw—and resolved to figure out my eating once and for all.
I had a business I wanted to see successful.
I had relationships I wanted to cultivate.
Heck, I had vacations I wanted to take without bringing a million Tupperwares with me, ha!
Hence, the #Moderation365 tools were born.
And while it took me about 3 years to fully make this switch, I started honing the tools and techniques, reverse engineering my own process and finally started teaching the curriculum to clients in 2014.
And as a result, my clients now are making this shift in as little as 12 weeks, and their lives are forever changed.
This is not a diet course. I won’t be telling you the food to eat or the meal plans to recommend.
I will be helping you lay a solid foundation for your clients so they can understand—not the foods themselves—but how they INTERACT with those foods.
Telling clients what and when to eat without teaching them how to understand their unique biofeedback and practice mindfulness is liking treating someone with Celiac disease a TUMs.
That's a Band-aid fix.
The #Moderation365 Coaching Curriculum will facilitate giving your clients back their autonomy and helping them to truly TRUST themselves around any food any time.
Food FINALLY has zero control.
It’s hard work, but it's the most fulfilling and liberating work we can do for ourselves and those clients who we want to see successful.
You in? I hope so. We’ve got work to do.
