Though he did not always practice what he preached, American philosopher, scientist, and statesman Benjamin Franklin wisely urged people to think properly about food.
“Eat to live, live not to eat,” he said. He also explained that “to lengthen thy life, lessen thy meals.
In other words, he pioneered diet coaching, along with a number of other fields.
The original diet coach understood that the right way to diet starts with having the proper mindset. Food should serve as fuel for your body’s engine and nothing more. We must use mindset training to strip our psyches of the emotional and cultural baggage surrounding food -- baggage that leads to unhealthy eating practices.

The Jowett Method takes weight loss to a new plane of thinking. Each individual has internal and external triggers that can spark the kind of emotional eating and binge eating that can cause a range of health problems and harm your quality of life.
Geoff Jowett, the creator of this important coaching method, understands that food serves as a catalyst for celebration and comfort. Unfortunately, relying too much on food in either instance can afflict your body and mind.
Weight loss motivation starts when you understand the red flags that lead to harmful eating, and address these flags before you eat.
You must also let go of conventional and self-destructive responses to overeating, which often include guilt, shame, and frustration. These negative emotional responses only weaken your mental strength, reduce motivation, and open the door for more problems eating.
Although we recommend joining to get the full benefit of our unique weight loss inspiration program, we have provided a number of helpful resources to get you started on your journey.
Weight loss does more for an individual than simply boost health and reduce the chance of disease. Issues with weight can sap mental energy and strength while leading to additional stress and anxiety. If the mind does not have a healthy outlook and balance, the body will soon follow this negativity.
That is why the Jowett method targets the individual’s mindset to improve his or her emotional well-being. More importantly, most who struggle with weight have a psychological food addiction. When treating addictive behaviours, experts agree that treating the mind is as, if not more, important than treating the body.
Working with the mind through coaching bears more fruit than conventional techniques. Too many people lose weight through dieting. They deprive themselves of food until they lose the desired amount of weight, then gradually fall back into the same mindset and habits that caused the weight gain in the first place.
The Jowett Method is a community of individuals who work together towards achieving real goals. Members also receives coaching that helps them to overcome internal barriers to find success in weight loss.
We are not a typical or traditional weight loss approach, however. We have no meal plans, no points, and no overpriced products for you to buy. When you join, you gain access to support and assistance.
Too many see weight loss as an unending struggle or as a barrier between themselves and a happier, healthier life. We prefer to see it as a journey, with our caring staff using the Jowett Method as a proven guide to better, more permanent results.
