"I have no willpower..." what I hear almost EVERY time I ask someone what is holding them back from a healthy, happy life.

The reply comes in many forms... unmotivated, too lazy, too tired or even "no time."

And most of the time it simply means...


"Why can't I just do what I say I'll do?"

I mean we all KNOW how FREAKING IMPORTANT this is.

We even know WHAT to DO!

But, no matter how hard we try, somehow we just can't seem to stick to healthy eating and lifestyle choices.

So, what the heck is making it so dang hard?!?


Is it really lack of willpower?

I don't think so...

Because the people I work with are often the most determined, tenacious over-achievers I know!

They might be exhausted and burnt out, but motivation and willpower are NOT the problem.

And they are definitely NOT LAZY!

Even though many days that is exactly how they feel about how they're showing up in the world right now.

So, why don't your actions match your words?

WHY do you SAY you’re going to do one thing, like follow a new diet, but then actually DO SOMETHING ELSE, like giving up the diet in week 2 (or day 2)!

It’s because of huge internal conflict between you and your survival brain.

Let me explain...

No matter how determined you are that the diet will work this time, your survival brain has it’s own agenda and the only goal on that agenda is to keep you alive!

For example, if your blood glucose suddenly drops because you cut out your usual morning doughnut, your survival brain will go all-in at persuading you to reach for a quick shot of sugar before you pass out (or worse) and you'll feel that in the form of crazy intense cravings.

It's just your survival brain trying to SAVE YOUR LIFE!

Which is why, no matter how strong your willpower, your survival brain is going to over-ride your best intentions (even when it’s got things a bit wrong).

But it gets worse...

Because when you’re stressed, burnt out or even just a little anxious, your stress response kicks in and your survival brain takes over - you switch to autopilot.

It's no wonder you don't feel in control.

And if you're living a chronically stressful lifestyle, then you're in your fight-or-flight stress response ALL the time!

Which means NO amount of MYTHICAL WILLPOWER is going help you stick to your best-laid healthy plans when your survival brain is running the show with a different roadmap.

And you can see why the old methods of using willpower to lose weight and establish new healthy habits just won't work.


With a different approach, you can...

TAKE BACK CONTROL of that driving seat.

Get clear on the direction you're taking.

RETRAIN your survival brain to get on board with the new route and remove that inner conflict.

AVOID GETTING STUCK on any obstacles on the road ahead.

And then absolutely NOTHING can stop you from showing up in your healthiest, happiest life!
