How do I help my clients stop obsessing about their weight?
Help clients stop dieting, stop blaming themselves and focus on evidenced-based strategies, health and quality of life goals - instead of weight numbers
Blame themselves for gaining weight?
Practice harmful behaviours to control their weight?
Constantly focus on weight-centric goals or outcomes?
Struggling to keep up-to-date with weight science?
Looking for a way to teach weight science to your clients in one-to-one or group counselling?
In need of templates to use in practice or scripts to guide you in conversations with clients?
In need of a step-by-step process to help clients focus on health outcomes?
When clients understand "the WHY" behind weight science, they stop blaming themselves and can focus on health outcomes and behaviours that move beyond weight-specific goals. The Health Not Weight course will help you:
Understand weight science (physiological impact of weight stigma, weight cycling, appetite hormones, stress and so much more)
Explore clients goals, values and barriers in assessments
Communicate/teach weight science to clients
Normalize weight changes with client
Confidently support clients to focus on health

The HNW Weight Storyboard tool walks you through a step-by-step process, using calculations and scripts to support you with clients that fear weight gain, have self-blame, or unrealistic weight-related goals, etc. This tool used in combination with the HNW Iceberg tool can help nurture a positive relationship with weight and health behaviours.
Jennifer Brown, MSc., RD, CBE
I'm Jennifer Brown, a registered dietitian and advocate for changing the narrative about how we understand, talk and think about weight science. I struggled for years trying to support clients that were obsessed with losing weight, blaming themselves for not eating 'the-right-foods', and constantly looking for diets or ways to keep the weight off. I've spent over 15 years exploring the complexity of weight and appetite regulation to help clients understand the science behind weight changes and eating behaviours. I found that when clients understand 'the WHY' behind weight science, they stop blaming themselves and can focus on health outcomes and behaviours that move beyond weight-specific goals.
Topics I teach to clients:
By translating the science of weight in a way that clients can understand HOW and WHY the body work, I've found that clients were empowered to focus on outcomes beyond weight loss or weight numbers.
As a busy healthcare provider, you may not have the time, energy or interest to review all the science and up-to-date information that has changed how we understand and view weight or health. That's why I created "Health not Weight"; a course that not only provides you with the information about weight science, but HOW to use it in one-to-one or group sessions with your clients. I'll walk you through all the evidence, controversies, resources and most importantly, step-by-step tools you can use with clients to support their journey and goals.
